I hear that once you learn to fly with "first person video" (FPV) it's hard to go back. This weekend hasn't been great weather so new, more powerful motors were fitted and also a 200mW transmitter and camera was added. The ...

I over discharged a LiPo 3 cell battery pack such that one cell, the middle one, read just 0.6V and neither of my chargers would charge the pack. This is not a new problem and rather than just give up, it seems that if you're...
