    Agree, you should never fully discharge any rechargeable battery.
    Most chargers have a discharge or cycle function, they will only discharge to a certain level, so the battery does not get damaged....

    Just another way to eliminate vibration as a cause - if you just take the link off, the servo should stop twitching if there is no mechanical load on it.

    Franklin, we have some MOAs a few miles away. Needless to say that we have quite a few military aircraft flying at low altitudes, sometimes 'missing' the corridor. That is more of a reason to get an...

    PBS, these regulations are already in place, as you even mentioned.

    A fence would keep the deer out, we have quite a few here. So in the name of safety, they could really justify this.

    It depends what questions you ask. I fly electric, glow and gas planes and helicopters (and have a pulse jet sitting in the shop).
    So I think many modelers are doing the same.

    You'd only need the fail safe it if you use an old mechanical speed controller with a servo.
    Electronic controllers cut the power in case of a signal loss.

    Thanks, Bob.

    I'll pass, no doubt I'd take it if I was closer. In case you be in the area and still have it, I'd be interested.
