    2.4Ghz radio signals have a much shorter wavelength than 72Mhz, and the transmitter requires direct line of sight with the receiver to operate reliably. Inside of the aircraft, the receiver can be...

    If the engine won't turn over due to being brand new and having a very tight pinch at the top of the cylinder sleeve, it shouldn't matter which glow plug you have installed. I suppose a shorter plug...

    My understanding is that Futaba and Hitec specify slightly different crystals for their receivers and that they shouldn't be interchanged. RAMFlyer mentioned that he'd done it without any issues, so...
