Reuse the things around the workshop is my hobby.
My Project : Battery container made from paper packaging.
Requirement : I seldom use the 850mAh Lipo(normally for my 3D airplanes) with my Big lama.

So I made the battery container (adapter) from paper packaging that can be found in my bin.
It so common and easy but usable. It properly fit inside the heli battery compartment.

I still keep it in my battery box. Idea

hay platinum,

Now that's what I like to see someone else getting stuck in with recycling stuff we pay for and what most people just throw away. 'Wink'
I like to see what can be done with that clear plastic packaging that's so hard to get into, and it comes in so many interesting shapes and sizes.

The flat stuff makes good side windows and the domed can sometimes be turned into an aircraft canopy.

I make wheels out of pairs of plastic bottle tops. My blade balancers are all homemade as are many of my adaptors to measure working currents and voltages (wires salvaged from old electrical equipment).

On a non-heli note just made a winder for my 12 string guitar from an old (bent) mainshaft, a spare M3 bolt, a used toothpick (keep a stock of them for foam repairs) and a short piece of leftover 15mm plastic water pipe. I hate throwing anything away, drives the wife nuts, but she was pleased when I made a working juice squeezer from 2 old ones!

Tom.

I think this is not a valid trick to safe the batteries for long time. The packing is the main thing which helps to run light machines for long time but the paper packing is not attractive.

The paper is only used to hold the batteries in flight and NOT for long term storage.

No almacene las baterías en papel Perez.

It's amazing what can be done with sticky back plastic and a UHU box when your stuck for a battery carrier. I do believe that the Wombles of Wimbledon Common would be quite happy with it.

Absolutely 'spot on' there Burgess, my mini quad camera mount is made from an old tin lid. (Tuna I think it was. Laughing )

You mean there's something fishy about your mini quad Thombo

Well being Admiral you should know about 'fish' there Keith.

My latest canopy is made from a clear biscuit tub cut down in height. Should give some protection to the board and Rx - when I get it finished. Might just take the biscuit - or even a crummy prize? Laughing



N.B. Elastic bands are just temp, while I decide on final positioning for the ESCs (all 4 of 'um).

Looking good there Thombo, I particularly like the red & black to define the front & rear should make it a lot easier to maintain orientation.

With a few quads popping up maybe we should ask Silhouette to start a quad section as they are becoming more relevant than some of the older sections?

Good idea Keith,

I'm in regular contact - I'll put it to Silhouette.
