Pep Pills

A medicine bottle carries batteries for E-Flite aircraft.

A medicine bottle carries batteries for E-Flite aircraft.

My current favorite aircraft are quite small, weighing just an ounce or so.

Their batteries are small, too, single-cell lipos rated at 120mAH.

As a battery carrier, I’ve adopted a pill bottle. It holds a bunch of them.

Oscar Yatco was quite amused when he saw them. “You’ve got to put this on your blog,” he said. “Just take one in the morning and you’ll feel great!”

    Very cool. I was waiting for you to post your next article but I didn’t expect to start pushing drugs on your blog.

    New slogan: “Wanna Fly, You Gotta Buy”, batteries that is. Could that be mistaken for real drugs? Either way you can still going flying high.

    I was thinking of inventing a Pez dispenser that looks like a charger and spits out the tiny works of art. May show up at the LHS soon.

    Lithium in a medicine bottle. Lets see, lithium ion, Li+, as a drug. A number of chemical salts of lithium are used medically as a mood stabilizing drug, primarily in the treatment of bipolar disorder, where they have a role in the treatment of depression and particularly of mania, both acutely and in the long term.

    Seems to me that more RC flyers should be eating batteries as most flyers show signs of depression after a crash and mania after a successful maiden.

    Now you know how to dispose of those little puffies.
