Not sure but think I may have left a battery on the box by the strip tonight after rushing off to recover plane from field?



Note to self "don't stall a Radjet".

Futaba/Ripmax product recal

Post by Mark Barnes on Tue Aug 05, 2014 1:41 pm

As ive always suspected futaba gear is rubbish, they have launched a product recall on on some of there "high end" equipment.

I sugest that we move to formaly ban all forms of futaba equipment untill we can be satisfied of there safe use.

I was quite suprised that you called the wall charger high end, just not sure if there, their or they're safe to use though.

It probably cost more to publish the recall than the charger costs

You wouldn't expect anything less

If you ever get to buy a high end piece of equipment of any kind you'll know you get a power supply unit not a cheap wall charger
