Can I fix that LiPo tag? FANTASTIC Russian Mikoyan MiG-29 1 day ago   11:34

Can I fix that LiPo tag? I was working on one of the small LiPo batteries in the Power Pods from Poundland and the tag fell off the positive terminal. Soldering directly on a LiPo battery is asking for trouble because you could easily overheat it and start a reaction inside that could potentially end with boiling electrolyte and even flames. I wanted to try a technique for soldering on Aluminium but actually managed to get solder onto the remaining ferrous tag. That was good enough to get the battery working again and I did a separate video on soldering on some Aluminium sheet from a drinks can.

FANTASTIC Russian Mikoyan MiG-29 Can I fix that LiPo tag? 1 day ago   09:40

Now you can fly the Mig-29 OVT and pull amazing aerobatic manoeuvers that even the full size pilots cannot perform. Record your flight and then play it back while flying your own jet again to see if you can keep tight formation with your first flight! Filmed action from the Aerofly RC 8 flight simulator.


The realism of the flight model is amazing as is the graphics. Hours of entertainment for the novice and expert RC pilot.
