🧰 Parts for your toolbox
The MC06 is an invaluable tool for your bag. Not only is is a quick battery cell tester, but it can also be used to check your receiver being able to check S.Bus, PPM, PWM and DSM Satellites for correct functionality. An Ideal tool for diagnosing receiver issues when building FPV racing drones.
Sometimes you got that special project with special screws you don’t have bits for. The TBS 24bit kit might just be the life safer. Any toolbox should have a set just in case! And finally the TBS solder is some of the best on the market and will make your soldering 100% easier and better looking.

🔋 Charge it up
This week we have a new micro charger from TBS, and a powerful power supply. If you are sick of unreliable and inaccurate cheap 1S chargers, the TBS micro battery charger will get your cells charged quickly and accurately. The 400W power supply (modified from a server power supply with an XT60 connector) is an incredibly affordable way to get the full function out of the most powerful battery chargers. You could use the two together, but it would be overkill for 1s!
