Remember the last time you were at the field and needed to make a quick repair to your foamy? This handy battery powered hot glue gun would have been just the tool for the job.
Operating on 12VDC, this glue gun can be powered by any standard 3S lipoly battery. It comes pre-fitted with an XT60 plug allowing you to easily connect to your Turnigy/Zippy lipoly battery. Everyone has a 3S 2200mAh battery in their field box, so you'll always have power for your hot glue gun. This tool is a must have for any flight box!
*Note: This glue gun does not feature a low voltage cutoff circuit, so we recommend using a low voltage battery alarm to monitor the input battery to avoid over-discharging. Please see related items below.
Operating Voltage: 12VDC
Power Plug: XT60
I still can't believe how good this glue gun is.
I used around 10 glue sticks I had and none of them jammed.
The gun kept its heat high enough at all times so I didn't need to take a break while gluing.
It's very cheap gun but it doesn't feel like cheap.
My new AC powered Rapid 7 mm gun which costs around 10 € is so much worse than this. Rapid's warming up takes forever, trigger doesn't move the stick every time (and glue stick gets stuck), while gluing it cools down so fast that a brake is needed, solid table stand thing gets always in the way... this gun has none of those problems.
The tip of the gun is long-ish and full metal so I can imagine someone thinking it as a hazard, but I'm sure that no one can damage anything with it. It's not a soldering iron.
I don't have a 3S battery so I use my lab PSU (DIY model) instead which is giving exactly 12 volts for it. Zero issues.
Highly recommended even when not used in the field.Very cheap and useful at the flying field.material looks and feels much more expensive.
I measured 1.1 A from a 3S, so it is about 12 to 13 watts
i.ll definetly buy some more of this. to giveway to friends, and for my toolboxes car and camping.These are so good that I bought one for my toolbox and one for home!I got this to do quick repairs at the field and was very impressed. A few of the other members of my club ordered them after seeing mine too! I've also used it at home to build planes and it never ceases to amaze me!
One minor modification I did was to attach velcro around the handle. This is great for attaching a 1000mah 3 cell battery so you're not worried about dragging it around by the wires. This battery powers it for long enough to build a plane and a lot of repair work. I also made up an extension lead for connecting to a car battery.
Well worth the money!came quickly....seems to be a good glue gun ....we will see after I get some use out of itthis is good at home and at the fieldtook it to the flying field the other day and it sure was just the thing one of the guys needed....I made an extension so I could have the battery lay on the table while we were doing the gluingVery fast delivery. Ordered on the 09 august 2017 and received on the 11 august 2017.
Difficult to do better...
Easy to use at airfield.so far it works good....maybe another review in a couple months after I get much more use out of it
