  1. Saw no mention of this in anything from the FAA

    And something that just occurred to me, how does the FAA handle new pilots?

    Little Timmy shows up at the club, and want's to learn to fly. He's assigned a trainer, and club plane to learn on. ...

    Pretty simple actually, it's called CYA!
    The club is doing so to Cover It's Behind. If someone from the FAA shows up at the field after the law take effect, then they want to be sure that all the...

    Nope, you'll have power on the center post and a ground on the outside post all the time when the rx is powered. Those two rows of pins are all connected to the others in the rx. The only one that...

    Maybe you answered your own question. The winding's in the motor are what causes the tones. And you have a motor that seems to be eating esc's, and a possible lack of power starting to show.

    From the video and your description you have a bad motor/esc. Motor getting hot that quick means it's probably binding up, aka bent shaft.
    And you could have damaged the esc by continuing to run the...

    Should be. But is it a linear or switching bec? Linear bec's loose their amp capability as the battery cell count goes up.

    Airbrushler, no this is how they showed up from the sellers to my client. It's like the plastic has degraded badly over time.

    AH Sdkfz 250 brittle/fragile armour?

    I know most here play with 1/16 scale but I know a few delve into the 1/6th stuff too.

    I have three Armour Hobbies 250's that I'm converting to r/c for a client. The plastic they are made of is...

    Yep soldering is an art you only learn by doing over and over. I solder with rosin core, silver solder, even aluminum solder. Cleanliness, and the proper tools go a long way to learning.

    And I...

    Depends. You didn't list the cell count of the pack. Dependent on the cell count it may or may not work. You need to know the voltage capability of the motor and esc and then compare that to your...

    Sorry can't help you with the esc programming, but the thin red cable is most likely an anti spark lead. You connect it before hooking up the main red lead of the battery to the esc.

    Maybe, maybe not. You still have to follow the rules even if it's a car motor. Kv rating will determine the prop size, dependent on the pack cell count.
    If it's a real high kv you'll have to run a...

    Hmm, hadn't seen the Traxxas versions before. Looks like they took a little from Deans and a little from the EC3/5 plugs to come up with another option.

    Deans was the one for a long time, but...

    I looked a little deeper too, seems Jeff had his design "borrowed" by a Korean company back in 2004 and there were counterfeit versions popping up.

    Not a sickness, just thinking big. Easier to work on.
