  • You can replace a lot of part on the caliber 30, raptor 30 parts are half prize compare to Kyosho genuine parts!

    Swashplate If your swashplate develop slope or break after a crash, do not buy a new plastic one from Kyosho....CA3036 Upper Swash + CA3037 Lower Swashplate + CA3038 Swash Inner Race = $32 you can buy an aftermarket metal for $60 (quick Uk)

    Alternatively you can reduce slope in the plastic swashplate if you use new screws with big heads and the old swashplate will have smaller slop.

    Landing skids CA3029 Brace + CA3030 Skid = $24, you can buy thunder tiger PV0035 (complete landing skid set) for only $10.50 Moreover the width is 25cm vs 18,5cm! that is a 35% width increase!!
    Canopy 30 body CA3031 $29 + CA3033 canopy decals $7, you can buy thunder tiger PV0066 for only $15.50.
    Flybar You can use Raptor 30 flybar, there are 60mm smaller but for $5.25 you get 2 set (PV008) instead of one CA3009 for 4.25
    Smaller flybar will improve response and agressivity of heli. Use heavier paddle if you are still a beginner.
    Tail blade, rotor blades Are the same, buy the cheaper one !
    Frame Try to repair it! see below
    Tail fin CA3058 $4.89 and CA3060 $6.49 buy bag PV0038 for raptor 30: $6 both (they are heavier)
    Main rotor blade You can use Raptor 30 main rotor blade
    Exhaust Since it is an OS32 you can virtually use any muffler which fit an OS32 or TT36, TT39
    Tail Pipe Yes! for the price of one genuine tail pipe, you can build 7. You can buy pipe in an industrial plant! more to come soon
  • css.sprite.generator

    Here is an useful tool for improving performance of your website: The CSS sprite generator takes a number of source images and combines them into a single "sprite" image and supplies CSS to map to each image within the sprite. The technique this tool employs is often used to improve the performance of a web site by reducing the number of HTTP requests that the client's browser needs to make.

    CSS sprites are a way to reduce the number of HTTP requests made for image resources referenced by your site. Images are combined into one larger image at defined X and Y coordinates. Having assigned this generated image to relevant page elements the background-position CSS property can then be used to shift the visible area to the required component image.

    This technique can be very effective for improving site performance, particularly in situations where many small images, such as menu icons, are used. The Yahoo! home page, for example, employs the technique for exactly this.

    I’ve installed a copy of this tool at:

    http://css-sprite-generator.waltercedric.com

    And took time to:

    1. Improve the overall internal security of the tools, by using some technique of Joomla! framework, so most type of attacks (XSS, parameter tampering, path browsing, avoid direct execution of files) should be eliminated,
    2. The tool now extract the ZIP file without being forced to use the dangerous shell_exec php command (I switch it off on my host anyway), the tool support&160; if they are available in that order: ZipArchive(), zip_open() and shell_exec()
    3. Make the code a bit more portable (avoiding .. inclusion for files, use DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR)

    And I did audit the code using Acunetix Web security Scanner, the result can be seen below:

    css.sprite.generator.acunetix&160;

    The source code for CSS Sprite Generator is available for download and is covered by a BSD license. Want to run a local copy, get the source code at https://launchpad.net/css-sprite-generator

    My version will be available soon, link to appear later this week.

    Note about PHP and Zip support

    To install zip PECL package run the following as root:

    # pear installhttp://pecl.php.net/get/zip

    and create a new file at

    # vi /etc/php5/conf.d/zip.ini

    with following content

    extension=zip.so

    Restart apache

    Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

    and npm is the package manager for the Node JavaScript platform.&160; It puts modules in place so that node can find them, and manages dependency
    conflicts intelligently. It is extremely configurable to support a wide variety of use cases. Most commonly, it is used to publish, discover, install, and develop node programs. (https://npmjs.org/)
