    RE: Gyro not working

    I double checked. With the servo pluged directly into the RX it works fine. I keep thinking I have some setting wrong but everything looks correct to me. Are these gyros ever bad out of the box?

    The travel adjust pot has no effect. I just checked and the servo is holding the rudder centered,so there is a signal going to the servo but moving the rudder stick on the TX has no effect.

    The G62 does good. I think it flies pretty scale like. It cruises around at about 1/2 throttle. It will do a nice big loop and a descent stall turn. It certainly is not overpowered....

    Warbirds

    Hi All,
    I am wondering if a Stearman painted in army colors is considered a warbird. What do you think? Would a Stearman be accepted at a warbird fly in?
