Re: New Nylet Spirit is here! Progress at last!

Hi David, Nice build log, thanks for sharing. I was particularly interested in the LiPO's you are using. I need to shave about 100g of the weight of my gadget and changing to LiPO's seems like one way of doing it. Being a bit of a nooby when it comes to electrics I was wondering though why the batte...

However, being my first ever build, the quality isn't as good as it might be and the finish certainly leaves something to be desired. So, I thought I would build another hull using everything I learned from the first and try an...
