#1324 – Placid

Man, how do you even change the batteries in this thing? What the heck, torx screws? Now I gotta buy a $25 set of screwdrivers to change the battery in a $5 toy? No wonder they get you to name the dang things. I think I’ll paint some racing stripes on mine.

Today’s Maximumble is backed up.

    Hate hate HATE odd-ball fasteners. Bought a set of universal drivers in sheer self-defense. Three-sided? Got it. Star-splined? Can do. Hex with a center-pin? Yup. 17-sided regular polygon? Bet I’ve got that in there somewhere, too!

    Liking Biff’s snazzy new toy. Immense battery life. Intuitive operation. With proper technique and practice, capable of flight to great distances at high speeds. Some control issues with return flights have been reported, though.

    Teaching it to attack is fun too!

    Am I the only one who can unscrew anything with tweezers? One simple universal screwdriver, provided it’s thin enough :p

  5. MaskedMan says:

    There are places tweezers don’t fit – and times when they can’t provide enough torque, if they’re thin enough to fit.

    From the makers of “Log.”

    Sorry for the bump. As much as I hate uncommon fasteners, I find Torx to be a very good candidate to replace Phillips screws. They handle torque very well, and dont strip like Phillips. If you’re lucky you can find Torx Plus bits cheap online.

    As for that R/C Rock, does it take lithiums?
