Pervert.

You know what you were thinking

No I mean in your house. Have you used RC parts to repair-replace things in your home?

nope... in my case its usually the other way around...

I find crap around the house to serve as replacement parts/ components to fix my helis...

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I needed some longer 4 mm screws to hang a TV, recently. Found some nice Allen head bolts in a RC parts bin. I've also used a 1/4-20 nylon screw and large washer to hold a wood pull on a bi-fold door. Way back when, when the kids were young, I used a wood strut from a plane, to make a "lock" on a bi-fold door to keep the kids out of a pantry. Needed a grommet for a coffee pot, once. Used some fuel tubing as a replacement. I'm sure I've missed something.

I used planker pushrods for small actuators on a machine we have been selling for 25 years. Once in a while someone gets a chuckle when they see the Great planes tube. They are just about right for what we need them for.

Servo extension wire has extreemly fine wire, excelent for high flex applications, i have used that in machines too.

Not in the house but I did use the fueltank from a Horizon Hobby Tango 40 ARF airplane as the engine primer bottle for our APBA 1 litre modified hydroplane.

The power went out one hot summer day. So I zip tied my Goblin 770 to the ceiling, set the pitch to about 5%, enough to get the air moving and cool down the room. Voila instant air.

Just kidding.

Really?
Zip ties?
I usually just hover inverted and land on the ceiling.

Flybarless tech is great these days,
Only dangerous if you forget the timer.

Disclaimer: this was a joke.

Excellent responses you guys.
Great stuff.

I'm glad we're still here.

You guys remember seeing the video of the guy flying the Raptor 90 nitro INSIDE his family room? That was moving some air.

No, not to replace anything.. Although Radix 690's are great for whipping the kids during Christmas...

Is that a turbo variation of the "Sienfeld Swirl"?

I hope that doesn't get discovered here. I'm getting too old for fancy stuff.

Well, this was 9 years ago. But, that's a 5v BEC and a 4s lipo strapped to the baby rocker. Ran out of D cells at 3am and this thing was the only way my daughter would go back to sleep LOL

if it ain't broke, break it.
