  1. This is the fake one, not the SkyRC. So i feel like a total dumbo when it comes to batteries and charging - back in the day i had a TYCO 'fast charge' 4 hour charger plug which i connected to my then 9.6v NiCD batteries. I knew how long to charge them as it was written on the plug, and never had any problems. That was circa 1995! Now its Lipo this, nimh that...and i dont know how long im supposed to charge anything, if im overdoing it or what. So i have bought the imax b6 lipro balance charger for £20 off amazon. No plug. I found the plug that powers my external fan assisted hard drive provides an output of 12v at 1.5A (pic below) so i plugged it in and the charger powered up. So far so good. I go through the instruction manual and think im smart enough to set it up and set my parameters up as follows for my 1400mah 7.2v NiMH Carisma Sports Pack battery - User set program> enter>toggle to NiMH sensitivity>D.Peak Default (which the manual says is 7mV/Cell)> USB/ Temp select>Temp Cut-Off 80C>Waste Time> [DCHG>CHG] 10min>Safety Timer> ON 75min> Capacity Cut-off> ON 1400mAh>Input power Low>Cut-Off 10.0V> Back out of that menu > program select NiMH BATT>enter>NiMH Charge Man>Current 1.4A connect my battery up using the tamiya connector, turn on the mains and press and hold the enter button until i hear the beep and it starts to charge. No the battery was definitely low to empty as i had been using it that day. Once it does the battery check and starts charging, the display shows that the battery is like 8.5v from the start, and when it finished charging the battery it said CHG 1:12 and the number next to it was 1139 and the final figure was 9.5V It was red hot to touch too, i couldn't touch it for a good 45min. What have i done wrong? Also good to know is that the battery did come with a car i bought so i dont know how old it is. I then went to charge my brand new EnrichPower 3000mAH 7.2v battery using the same method but changing the capacity cut-off to 3000mAH and NiMH Charge to 3.0A. Same thing, it started to go really hot and i was worried so i turned it off after about 15mins. Help!
  2. Evening, does anyone know of a slow/trickle charger that will charge a multitude of types? 12v small lead-acid 7.2v tamiya stylee Nitro style Rx battery etc mark
  3. I've ordered this battery (http://www.ebay.com/itm/272350378004) for my new Tundra. Is it any good? (did not want LiPo since I'm a beginner). Thinking I might have to buy another battery soon cause I understand you shouldn't run Ni-Mh more than once or twice a day. What charger would you recommend? I was looking at Traxxas EZ-Peak Plus or Dual..
  4. Hello Tamiya fans! I am upgrading my tamiya TL01 chassis and I have some questions...I want to replace old brushed silver can 540 motor and mechanical speed controller with combo motor...so I chose to replace the brushed motor with this one https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobbyking-x-car-brushless-power-system-4000kv-60a.html ...but there is a problem in specification I cant find the dimensions of the position of threaded holes on brushless motor (see picture below)...I also contact the hobbyking store and they are not sure if this motor will proper fits into the mounting holes on chassis...maybe has anyone some experience with installing this motor? I am also woundering about ESC "Running mode"...in specification is written "Forward only or forward with reverse (user programmable mode)" in case of setting "Forward only" what is the purpose of the button reverse on transmitter? ...is use only for dynamic brake? ...is this setting useful for prevent the pinion gears damage? ...I also need some advice about the proper 2S lipo charger...which is enough "smart" to stop charging when the battery is full? ...thanks.
  5. I have seen a lot of threads reccomending this charger and with the new relaxed rules regarding e-bay links I thought I would ask if this is a bargain or a cheap imitation? I see U.K sellers asking for £30 for this set up whereas this is £14 for the charger and £5 for the power pack with a U.K plug. (including postage) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12v-5A-AC-POWER-Adapter-For-MYSTEKY-iMAX-B5-B6-Charger-/320726769547?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item4aacce1f8b http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Imax-B6-2-6-cells-Lipo-NiMh-Balance-Battery-RC-Charger-/220944845885?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item337156cc3d I might use a different seller with better feedback though?
