" Wish I knew how to upload a photo on this site "


Hi Rick

Have you looked at the information in the Photo Posting Forum on how to post photos ?

Information there tells you how to use the Members Gallery to upload & post photos

You can also simply use the Attachment Button at the bottom of the Main Reply Window

In either case your photos have to be a sensible web friendly size ie. say 800 or 1024 pixels wide

Images uploaded to the Members Gallery or Attached to posts must always be less than 0.5 Megabytes


:f:


Eddie

Rick,

Uploading photos is fairly easy, now that I've corrected some mistakes. After a few attempts, you'll be an expert. Here's what I do:

* I upload photos taken with my iPhone to a computer file I call "iPhone Photos".
* I right click the photo(s) then select edit. Then I click on resize.
* There are too many pixels, so I type in half the pixels shown, then click on OK.
* 800 x 600 is a nice size.
* I click on save as and add an a or a -1 to the old number.

* In Freerails I click on menu, then gallery, then upload photos.
* Click on browse, then select the photo(s) you just saved in your computer.
* Click on open and then click on upload. The photo is now in your gallery.
* In the topic area click on reply, then hit return on your keyboard several times to make room for comments above the photo.
* Click on the photo in your gallery that you want to post. This enlarges the photo.
* Right click the photo, select copy, then close (X) the image.
* In your reply box put the cursor on the last comment line, right click, then select paste. The photo should appear.
* Go to the first comment line and type in your comments. That's it.

If this doesn't work, follow Eddie's guidelines and/or read the forum Photo Posting.

This is my 2S battery pack.  

The +ve & -ve wire feeds the input of the Pololu step converter, small board, and the charging plug, black thingy to the right. 

The red switch isolates the +ve wire from the Pololu and therefore the Deltang RX,  larger board, whilst charging.  

The yellow "balance" wire goes directly to the charging plug.  

The yellow thingy is a thermal cutout switch.

2S battery and RX pack with Pololu 9v step converter.

" Only one image pasted at a time ? "


Hi Dave 


You can COPY and PASTE as many photos from your Members Gallery window to the Main Reply window as you wish


Just click on the thumbnail of the previously uploaded photo in your Members Gallery window to enlarge it

Then right click on the photo and select COPY

Then back in your browsers Main Reply window tab place the cursor where you want the photo to appear

Then right click again and select PASTE


You can place as many photos as you wish anywhere in your Posts text using this method

Placing the cursor before or after a photo and hitting RETURN can add blank lines before or after photos

You can then hit the PREVIEW button at the bottom of the Main Reply window to see how it all looks


When you are happy with the presentation click POST REPLY as usual to Post it to the board


You can of course also EDIT the resulting Post at any time after Posting it

More photos and text can then be added or removed and presentation changes can be made as well


To remove a photo you do not wish to appear Right Click to highlight it then hit backspace to remove it

This does not remove the photo from your Members Gallery it just removes it from your Post


Hope that helps


:f:


Eddie

Hi Rod,

I assume it's Spring in Australia. 

So, the last photo shows a 2 cell Lipo battery powering through a Pololu step-up regulator (small board), 
into the DelTang receiver (larger board), and from there onward to the locomotive's DC motor.

The yellow middle (balancing) wire from the Lipo has been connected directly into your "charging plug", 
and I assume you simply plug your charger into that "charging plug".    

My question is twofold:

1. Do you remove this assembled "package" from the locomotive for the purpose of charging, 
or is this whole arrangement built for the purpose of charging onboard??

2. How is the wiring arranged "to and from" the RED component, 
for the purpose of isolating the charging current away from the two boards while charging??

Thanks, Rod

Rick

Dave,

Are you coupling two individual.... 1 cell Lipo batteries together to get 320 mAh worth of power here?   

Is that what's going on?

Thks

Rick

Thanks Eddie I can now post multiple images. 

The problem was having copied the image from my gallery I could not find a way of returning to the main reply window. 

My solution was to open the gallery with a right click, this opens it in a new tab in the browser so I can copy and paste as much as I want.

Yes Rick, all my lipo batteries are UM style single cells. 

I make up 2S or 3S wiring harnesses for those locos that require it. 
The batteries are removed from the loco to charge. 

The E-flite charger in the first image can simultaneously charge 4 single cells to 4.2V.

The second image shows two E-flite USB chargers and a Turnigy P403 that can charge batteries up to 4S. 
I have made up two 2S charging harnesses for the Turnigy. 

Total charging capacity is 10 batteries at the same time.
