RE: RC Batteries

I All.

I saw there was some comments and questions on the "RC Batteries" blog entry I posted a few days ago.

  1. I got the batteries(Hyperion LifePO4) from Tino and Wayne(The Knife Edge Spin I know that Micton and Capesailplanes in Capetown also sells these batteries, but it is just easier to get it here from the local guys.
  2. I don't know if the prices have changed, so I cannot guarantee that these prices still are the same, but it will be a ballpark figure to work from. The prices that I got from Tino is as follow: Hyperion LifePO4 1600mAh R303.20, Hyperion LifePO4 2100mAh R359.10. Adapter Cable R36.70.

Please also keep in mind that it is said that these batteries have a much higher cycle life than your Lipo's, I think I read somewhere that it will give you up to 5 times the cycle life.

Hi Guys

A bit of a windy fly around. Managed to damage both the two planes I brought to the field. Bit of a disappointing turnout yesterday, but Roy tells me Saturday it was pumping.

Please remember that its our AGM on Saturday 6 Feb 2010 at 14h00 at the club. We will be discussing the capital projects for 2010 so if you have any ideas of what we should spend the CAPEX on please be here on Saturday to bring to the table.

Please have a quote with you so that we know what the cost will be. It does not help if tell us that the club should build something and then have no idea what it will cost.

Enjoy the pics

See you all on Sunday
