    Excellent Value

    posted by iangilf on 12/05/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Obviously based on Walkera Ladybird (which I also have). This is just as stable and quick, plus has flip buton which is fun, although not recommended indoors. Good quality RC. Pretty durable and will take the less serious loss of controls with equanimmity.
    Cons:
    None that I have come across. Pity sold out and alternartive similar devices are all a bit more expensive. Usual slow delivery ...

    Dont leave in the Sun!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Gives readings in 4 scales (psi, bar, kpa and kg/cm2). Save all the hassle of doing the conversion, (why arent tyre pressures standardised to one scale?). Red LED light helps illuminate. Useful tyre depth gauge. Readout also is illuminated. Soft touch velve...
    Cons:
    Left mine on my dash to charge the batteries, as you would, as is solar powered. Obviously got a little hot as case warped and ...

    Effective

    posted by iangilf on 03/17/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Surprisingly good. Bright and effective, especially on flash mode when they get out of sync. Easy to insert into bar ends, with the yellow rubber grommit adjustable by simply screwing end nut to increase diameter, so sits securely. Durable so far, but I don...
    Cons:
    Only one colour

    Excellent value

    posted by iangilf on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I use this in my E flite blade 400 3d helicopter. I use a voltage monitor and it takes about 9 minutes to get down to 3.7 volts per cell, so MAH rating appears reasonably accurate. Well constructed, albeit a little heavier than the 1800mAh E flite packs...4...
    Cons:
    I cannot attest to the durability, but would be suprised if they did not go the distance on my early experience. Had to remove ...

    Suprisingly good

    posted by iangilf on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Was one of those late night (hic), Dealextreme crawling purchases. Did not expect much for the price but was pleasantly suprised. Novel but simple display of the approximate time. Quite weighty. Good quality finish.
    Cons:
    Hour and second display do notline up at the 12 o'clock position, thus hour hand always about 5 degrees advanced. Hour hand not...

    Not so Good

    posted by iangilf on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Holds iPhone well. Easy to change frequencies to optimise reception.
    Cons:
    Poor sound quality...worse than other pod type transmitters I have. OK for spoken word, pretty poor for music. Flimsy construct...

    Excellent

    posted by iangilf on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I have these installed on my E flite blade 400d. They are designed to fit the Align range, so I needed to make 4 spacers for a good fit in the blade holders (I used plastic milk bottle material). Tracking and balance spot on. Quieter than the standard woode...
    Cons:
    Would be nice if spacers included...The E flite is becoming a pretty popular helicopter.

    Works great

    posted by iangilf on 07/08/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Easy to use. I use on my Blade 400 3d which has 325mm blades. Slides on easily, and spring not to fierce. Easy to read scale, and simple to align top edge with flybar for reference point. Reasonably well constructed, and appears quite durable.
    Cons:
    None at this price.

    Simple and effective

    posted by iangilf on 07/08/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Displays individual cell and total voltage with large red digital display. Lightweight and small enough to fit on top of the battery on my blade 400 helicopter, under canopy, so I can monitor voltages in use, thus avoiding overdischarge, but maximising flig...
    Cons:
    Will not measure single cell voltage...2 s or bigger only. Easy to plug in wrong way, but simple to recognise as no display.

    Great value

    posted by iangilf on 03/02/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I use these on my e flite 400 3d chopper. Previously, removing and replacing the ball joint links was stressful and tricky...now it an absolute snap. A must for all chopper owners. Well lubricated, and seem very durable
    Cons:
    A little too well lubricated on delivery...wipe with rag solved that. Very specific... no use for anything else.
