    The only way to tell the true capacity of a battery is to discharge a fully charged battery to a predetermined level. 3.0 volts per cell really is not quite low enough. I discharge mine down to 2.5v...

    Nice looking plane you have. Stearmans are cool.
    That engine sounded like it was laboring to me, perhaps rich on the high end. Maybe thats why the one bad takeoff.

    Power will be drawn from both batteries at the same time. Not sure why you wouldn't use two switches for two batteries. Afterall the whole idea is to have redundant power paths to the receiver. Not...

    Glad you gotter goin' Bob.
    Anytime you change oil brands, ratios, gas type, or props, a slight change in needle settings may be required.

    One should not have to order oil for these engines. There must be a local chainsaw dealer/service center near you judging by where you live.
    Go there, walk in the door, and it should be obvious...

    The important thing to have here isn't so much dual batteries but rather dual power paths. A failed switch or battery connection is much more likely than a failed battery. It is quite easy to just...

    Oh Dan, still using 4.8v nicad receiver packs. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Lol.

    Thanks for the update pooba. I haven't flown my Pitts yet with the repaired muffler. I will post my results as well here in the next week or so.

    I am interested in your result as well Grandpooba. I just tried this on a Bennitt muffler for my dle55ra. The stacks are just loose, no physical damage. I cleaned the surfaces real well then...

    I thought you were using a "Y" cable for your ailerons. Are you also using an extension cable in addition to the Y cable?

    FYI: A123 is a Life battery, A123 is a brand name though sold from...

    I had a similar problem last year with a Escapade. When first powered up for the day one servo, for ailerons Y connected, would waive at me and stop. Move the ailerons and one would waive at me and...

    Tacx, you might be under the assumption that when you put 200ma back into your Life 2100ma battery pack then you must have had 1900ma capacity remaining. Well, I am not going to go by your assumption...

    He didn't say what receiver he uses but did say it was a T7C transmitter and that bulletin seems to be associated with a 6014 receiver which I don't believe he is using.
