In the last T-Maxx series, this is one part that I skipped over since there was nothing wrong with the transmission. Over the coming years, people have shown that seeing the transmission is pretty important. So in this video I will tear this transmission apart and get it cleaned up. In the next video, we will be putting the transmission back together.
Ah yes, the inevitable part of every rebuild, the tear down. The time when you can look at individual parts and find out what is wrong with the truck you just purchased (in my case, borrowed) to see just how deep you are getting in to it. In this video, we do just that. We dive into each part group and we find some issues that I didn't think would be there. But they are and now the question is, where do we go from here...
It has been a long time coming, but the 2.5 Rebuild Series is finally here! There are thousands of people out there with these trucks and they are always asking how to do "this" or how to do "that" and in this series, I'm hoping to answer all of those questions in detail. I love getting the questions and answering them and when I can turn them into a video series, it makes it even better. In this series, we are going to be going through a Traxxas T-Maxx 2.5 that has, in the most literal...
I have taken a small seat back to the hobby to figure some things out. I finally decided that I need to go small if I am to keep flying. At least for the next season anyways. As we all know the RC hobby is an expensive hobby. HOw expensive it can get is based on us and what we want. Its very easy to get tied up in to the hubb bubb of the hobby. Unfortunately I think I did over the last 3 years. I don’t regret it one bit I love all the stuff I have. I did not skimp on much, I did not...
Over the last two weeks I have been looking at my hobby and seeing if anything needs to change. This week I am looking at what it is I fly. Before that let’s dig deeper into the why. Over time we get deeper and deeper into a hobby and we don’t realize just how deep into we are. The we begin to fall away from it just to come back to it. That’s what hobbies do they have their own cyclic nature to them as our lives develop or as events happen. So let’s take a look at what I am think about...
I am not dropping the hobby just assessing what it is I need to continue my enjoyment with it. My 570 is the bomb and will not give it up unless SAB discontinues the model. So to put the question to rest as of right now the 570 is not going up for sale. Nor is the rest of my stuff except the X3. Provided a fair offer is made. Due to the nature of my radio situation I don’t have much to talk about I wouldn't trade it for the world. Over the last 2 years or so my life has changed...
As of late I has been thinking about what is my hobby about and how it relates to the 99%. I am not a pro or and intermediate, I am a weekend warrior that flies basically on the weekends when I have time. This last year has been a really rough year for me and now that things are looking up I am considering on changing things up for my hobby. I am going to be looking at a lot of things over the next few weeks and starting to make some huge changes I think. My goal is to finally be able to...
Finally making some progress on this project. What I have learned is that you really need to know what your trying to achieve with discharging. Mistake 1: I initially thought I was going to do a 40 amp load bank. My wallet, my packs and my knowledge on this topic said "Not so much". Mistake 2: I tried to design a case out of lexan. After doing a test run with my Chargery 1500 power supply told me again "Not so much". You will need a bunch of cooling and the heat I was putting out...
need to update this when I get home. More to come. As of right now the load bank is built and almost completely wired. Again i will be doing a in depth write up of today's progress.
Last night I ordered the power resistors for the discharge bank. Now lets get into what I got and why i think its going to work? Up front I want to say is sorry for the delay in this part. Things are still not ideal but are getting better. Its going to take some time for this project. Lots of reasons why, one money, times are getting better but still not ideal as stated earlier, two: Voltage + Amps + Watts = FIRE if your not careful along with $160 USD of bad batteries; so no reason to...
If you have listened to RCHN towards the end then you know Justin Pucci has been working on such a thing for almost 4 years now. He has never posted the Tech tip due to the nature of the topic. This project if done wrong can be very dangerous. As of late I have been want to work with my 2 arduinos that I have. I posses 1 Uno and 1 leonardo. This project is being built on the Uno for now. I will need the Mega at some point for the analog pins. My issue with the Uno right now is that it...
Here is the complete setup guide for the AR7200BX.
If you guys have read my thread on the RunCam Split Issues, you know that I had a horrible time with the micro sd card in this board. Once I figured out that I needed a UHS 3 card to run 1080/60, every issue I had with this camera went away. In the video below, I will show you not only the unboxing, but also the board on the FrankenQuad as well as some flight footage of this camera in action. And let me tell you, the video quality of this camera is top notch! For $80, this camera is well...
These are the motors that I'm running on FrankenQuad, and they are absolutely fantastic. At first, I was worried because you can pick up 4 of them for $31.69, which is extremely cheap! But once I fired them up and flew them for the first time, my mind changed to LOVING these motors. As you all know, I have the DarkMax quad and on 4s, that thing is a MONSTER! I think these motors are right there with the DarkMax motors! I'm running these on 4s with 5045 props (instead of 5152's on the...
On Sept. 22 2016 I received the GoolRC Quad and I loved the layout of the frame! Great amount of room for the flight controller stack, a dedicated place for a VTX and multiple mounting options for a camera! Because of some unfortunate actions taken by the company that shipped the GoolRC to me, I stopped promoting that quad, but I still loved the frame. Fast forward to today and I have another frame just like the one mentioned above. It is the Lisam LS-210 frame and it is exactly like the...
