    Can I use a 3S LiPo on a WLToys A959-B RC?

    I just received my WLToys A959-B 1:18 Scale RC. I'll be test driving it this evening after work. If anyone else has this model please let me know if you've done any upgrades?

    Help! Lipo's puffing immediately.

    I've got an old (but never used) Kyosho Twin Force that i'm trying to get working. I've fried 2 pairs of 3S lipo's from Maxamps already trying to get this thing running. That's about $600 down the drain. I have a Lehner Brushless Motor and Warrior ESC. The lipo's puff very quickly after...

    Should I use this 2010 quick charger on a modern battery?

    The battery is a 7.2v, 6 cell 1400mAh Ni-MH. The charger specs 1500-5000mAh and good for Ni-CD or Ni-MH. I’ve been charging the battery overnight using the 100mAh trickle charger. That takes up to 14 hours to top off. I’m wondering, is my charger outdated for modern Ni-MH batteries? Will a...

    Many years ago I visited Hong Kong RC heaven and pickup this great ESC called Hobbywing XeRun150A and a Hobbywing 2250KV motor for a Team C 1/8 on road. HK RC shops are so cheap compared to here so I was tempted and enjoyed running the vehicle. Here is the link for the specs of both...

One of the posts though was about Tesla Motors upgrading two of the car models from 90 kWh to 100 kWh and the blog posts describes what all that power compares to. Pretty neat and thought I'd...

    I need a charger...

    I need to charge a 14.8v 6950mAh battery for my starter box. What would can you recommend? Here's the older setup I've been using: Is this charger okay to use?
