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...

Sometimes the most simple solutions are over looked. That is exactly what happened to me when I only needed to charge a single small battery. In this video, I show you my solution to this little issue!
If there is one thing that can ruin your day faster than anything, it's when a cold solder joint decides to finally come apart resulting in a crash! Always double check the factories soldered connections before it ends up costing you money!
OK so here is why I didn’t do this earlier < INSERT EXCUSE HERE> :p heehee So.. Here is the mod for making DPS-600PB into a very reliable , compact and powerful power supply, for a fraction of the price of what you find in the market for the same (/similar) specs and reliability. Each power supply is rated at 12V 47A ~~575W . I was looking for getting 24V out, so I could hook a good size charger to it and charge a lot of my small, or few Big batteries all together. So I connected...
Credit for the content of this video goes to Gaba. I meant to mention this in the beginning of the video, but I was so tired at the time that I completely forgot. And after the video was done, I just decided to leave it as is rather than put a finished product in the beginning of the video. Again, Gaba is the one that got me to purchase these parts and build this kit. In this video, I show you how to modify and wire TWO HP server power supplies in series to gain 24 volts and over 1000w of...
Voltage Tester - Battery Voltage Tester Battery Monitor Buzzer Alarm For 1S-8S Lipo Battery This Lipo Voltage Checker for my batteries was actually included with a quad I did a review on that only had a 2s battery! I never did use it on that quad, but I have used it on every single batter that I wanted to parallel charge! This thing has become a staple in my charging setup. In one of our live streams, it was asked if you can mount this on the side of a helicopter or in a car, and the...
For four years, I have been using a Dynamite Ultra Duo battery charger to keep my machines flying. The Dynamite charger has been a wonderful piece of equipment, but it recently gave up and needed to be replaced. Instead of buying another Ultra Duo, I decided to get with the program, and build a real charging case. The project started with a Plano brand handgun case from Walmart, which is very similar to the more expensive pelican cases. They are high quality cases and I use them for...
After almost a year of planning my solar rig is built and functional. Lets start at the begining with the planning,. I originally started off with a deep cycle battery from Home Depot for boats. After further research what I needed was a golf cart battery.
I decided to go ahead and put both of these videos in the same thread since they are virtually the same. The only difference between the two is the DX400 is 100w more power and the DX400 has an extra 2.4a USB port. The lack of voltage still worries me a little bit though but not enough to keep me from using them with electronics that are NOT sensitive. Have a watch and let me know what you think about these inverters.

Time and time again I hear people that are worried about soldering those pins on the flight control boards. In this video, I show you just how easy it really is to solder those pins. It takes all of about 5 minutes (10 if you have never done it before) and if you follow what I show in this video, you will end up with a great looking job every time. Don't forget to give this video a thumbs up! [MEDIA=youtube]oP8Cuqy1Ui8[/MEDIA]
