Hi all

I am still unable to sort this esc it's driving me mad I did servo test and all appears to be correct I'm sure this is a tx issue but I even tried an orange module and spectrum rx different but not better still only pulling 40 amps and about 5000 rpm. Is there any esc experts who can give me a helping hand I live in Harlow and am quite happy to travel to get this sorted I want to start practicing the intermediate schedule but I need to trim model etc but obviously motor needs sorting first.
My next option is different esc but really wanted to use spinn99 for the brake options

Hi John - no its too big to take to the dump! Will probably have to have it collected. Shame - it was top of the range then - £7500. Got other feelers out though.

Good luck Stuart.  I had an A0 drafting machine that l couldn’t give away, ended up taking it over the dump.  Crying shame.  Same deal with 21” CRT monitors (x10).

Have you tried the Refurb agents?  Refurbthat ot EuroComputers?
General Pattern Discussion / Soldering

This is a complete nine part series of lessons on soldering, the longest being
twenty minutes, with most just a few minutes.

It was professionally produced by Pace and while made a while back,
I think that is part of its charm.

While there are many to watch on YouTube, I think this gives a solid base to the art of
soldering and the knowledge from which other videos can be watched and I believe, keeps
the viewers interest throughout.

I think it's worth watching all of them and cup type connectors are covered in the series.

That's interesting. I can only think that the 100W soldering iron (not temp controlled) I tired,
was just getting too.

So, if you tin the bit and leave it for a minute or two, it isn't turning black?

I don't mean just normal oxidation (dulled silver) which always happens?

Hi Mike,

No temperature control. Weller SI 120D. Great soldering iron. The supplied tip is too big really for our purposes but is usable. I believe you can get smaller tips but I just turned mine down recently to ~8mm then formed a chisel section. Dead easy and quick to do. Not used the new tip yet but it should make soldering the 6mm connectors easier.

Hi Yoda  ;)

Just wondering if the Weller is temperature controlled?
