What’s up guys?! How is the RC flying world treating you this week? Contact me if you have any questions or comment below. This week’s post is labeling your RC gear, enjoy!
A really good tip for the RC hobby is to label your stuff. The deeper you get into the hobby, the more things you acquire, and the less you remember what’s yours. You can quickly and easily grab a sharpie and label all of your gear.
I find it especially helpful to label my batteries. I usually just write my name with a number on it. This way I know it’s mine, and I can tell which batteries I’ve already used. It can also be a good idea to put a date on each battery of when you got it. Then you can know how old they are. If they’re old and they start acting funny, you can dispose of them properly.
Once you get into the big RC aircraft, I would recommend you print a real, good-looking, label. Have it say, “Pilot: (Your name)”, written in a fancy font to make it look good on your airplane or helicopter. I’ve been to RC events and have seen expert pilots with a cool label that goes well with their aircraft.
Labeling things is always handy. Immediately, you can identify who’s it is, how old it is, and what order it should be used in. The more stuff you acquire, the harder it is to remember everything, use labels to make it easier on you. Even if it is just a sharpie written in a discrete place.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the blog today! Be sure to check out next week’s article, and always remember, “Altitude is your friend, fly high, and keep ahead of your aircraft.” Goodbye for now!
