G'day Mate,
I would change to a 6 volt battery, ASAP, LiFe 2 cell is the way to go, if your servos can handle 6 volts of course. The RC world has moved on from 4.8 volts.

G'day Mate,
Why would you use a "Y" lead, when you have such an easy to program radio as the DX7s, I can understand if you are short of channels in your RX,
but if you have enough channels, get...

G'day Mate,
Prop it for under 10,000RPM, a 14x6 is a 90 size prop, I use a 16x8 or a 17x6 on my FG21, & I found the best oil is Morgan's Coolpower Blue, mixed at 20:1.
I know you & most of the...

G'day Mate,
I set mine at 5volts, with my DX9, & Spektrum telemetry, but It's never got that low, I usually run out of time, or the day gets too hot.

G'day Mate,
The DX7s is a great radio, but the DX9 is awesome, & with 250 model memory, you probably won't need another TX, ever.

G'day Mate,

G'day Mate,
I don't know why you would have to rebind every time you go flying, but, if you have trouble binding, move 10-15 feet away from the plane & try again, the DX6 should tell you
when you...

G'day Mate,
Just go to servo setup & reverse the channels that you are having trouble with.
If in doubt read the instructions.

You are correct.
It's really simple, 1C is the Capacity of the battery pack, ie, 1C of an 1800Ma pack is 1800Ma, or 1.8 amps, & so on. That figure is used for CHARGING.
2C would be...
