Re: Shoddy wiring

Maybe this is a small "Airworthy Check" that should be made into an article for the MAAC magazine. This is BAD wiring.

For Heaven's sake don't ever tell an insurance investigator looking at a crash claim that this is normal!!

I built two Heathkit 8 ch R/Cs when I was 16. I lived 2 miles from Heathkit on Dundas just East of Dixie Rd back in 1977. Think I still have the Manuals.

Re: Shoddy wiring

Looks like the millenial thing where someone indicated they don't want to be bored with lectures...they just want to do things and try out skills!!

Re: Shoddy wiring

I fully agree with stegl thats a great video. I think i must have done all those mistakes when i learned to solder. The hardest thing is that i had an old radio shack soldering iron and i had no idea what temp it was at or could go to, so some connections were perfect others were over temp. Its only when i got a soldering station that i started understanding the temperature variances and effects.

Re: Shoddy wiring

Yes, I finally after many years got a soldering station that gives me the temps, so much easier to use. I had an adjustable one previously, but it was just a dial and you kind of learned what was too hot and what was too cold.
