Re: Desiccant needed for storing books and art.

desiccant is usually silica gel crystals if im not mistaken, i would expect crystal kitty litter to work for this purpose. further research is encouraged however.

Re: Quadrocopter Build Thread

Thanks Icars,
I stopped by the space today and Saxmachine dug a couple out of the box for me. im all set that way now.

Query,
the 2 pin header on the PDU board, is that power for the receiver? does it need to be regulated down to 5v for the HK 6a v2 receiver I have?

Thanks

Re: Quadrocopter Build Thread

Where are you guys getting the 3 pin female to female cables for connecting the receiver to the control board? I had a look at Hobbyworld, all they had were extensions.
