RE: Electric Conversion Question

You'll need to determine how fast you want (or need) the aircraft to fly. I believe it's 2-3 times the stall speed. Once you know the approximate speed then calculate the rpm x prop pitch to get that...

RE: Please confirm Part #

Hi John, I got the parts but the swash plate is not the one in the picture. I thought I was buying an Align V2 swash because of the picture. I must admit I never asked you if it was an official...

RE: Please confirm Part #

I'm hoping you got that wrong. The picture shows a V2 swash I believe. It has the anti-rotation pin on the opposite side from the aileron & pitch. So the one you sell is NOT the one in the picture? I...

Please confirm Part #

Hi, I noticed you guys have what looks to be a V2 swashplate for the T-rex 450SE on sale. Can you verify part # T009 as to what version it is? I believe V1 has silver top half, V2 is all blue.

RE: How to set lights in a RC plane?

I guess I didn't make that clear uh? While I didn't say to connect the lights to your rec batt, I didn't say not too!. There are exceptions of course, I have the lights on an electric heli and...

RE: How to set lights in a RC plane?

LED's are best, they use very little current, are low voltage and last forever (as long as you don't hook them up backwards). To switch the lights on/off you'll need either a optical switch that...

RE: 921 receiver questions

Boy do I feel dumb. I guess I never really noticed that but I checked my other aircraft and they all move (except some digitals) at start up too.

RE: 921 receiver questions

I tried re-binding but it didn't solve the servo movement at power on. Still the same. The two lights on the 921 & on the satellite flicker at power on before turning solid. It is during that time...

I have the new 2.4 X9303 with the 921 rec. and have a couple questions.

RE: B-24J project

Only hurts when my wife thinks about it! [X(] It cost around $2500 which isn't too bad really. The power system was about $1200 or so with the batteries costing $500. If I factor in the new JR X9303...

RE: B-24J project

Man I guess I should have looked at this thread and updated a while ago.

RE: Weird Lipo problem

mrasmm - I think you may be right! I had read it as if it would charge each cell to 4.2v and then cut off that CELL while still charging the others. The instructions say "Protective Circuit Module...

No I don't think they have the balancing chips in.



They didn't seem to be swollen but the bad cell did heat up while discharging and more than 1C

Weird Lipo problem

I have four PolyQuest 4000ma 3s packs and all four have had one cell go bad at the same time. The weird thing is they seem to charge OK, they show 12.6 volts and take in 3.2 ah (which isn't great)...
