RE: Sickle (V-2)

I too use the dual Aero-Tech setup up. With Ed's help I built the programmer so I can exactly match the two regulators.
I run them so the system uses either 480mah LiPo back and forth. Discharges...

RE: Sickle (V-2)

Bob,
The best thing I found about the Aeropoxy is it stays put.
Doesn't run while it's setting up.

RE: Sickle (V-2)

The way I did the V1, and will use the same method for the V2, was to have the motor mounting holes drilled in the firewall and the
firewall fitted as close as possible in the fuse.

RE: Cellpro Power lab 8 for pattern use
