    There is almost no chance of a crash between full size AC and RC models flown reasonably. Having said that, I realize that there always will be "kooks".

    Besides the battery, something else is bad. At least the ESC, and possibly the motor.

    They do not cause RF Interference. But they can distort the field strength near the magnets.
    Ferrites and magnets have been used to tune antennas and so forth. Actually, a few metals can have a...

    Check the shield connections, particularly at the spark plug. Grounding (common) can also be involved. It's also remotely possible that the ignition module has some sort of odd failure issue.

    "The weaker battery will always pull down the stronger battery." if the "weaker battery" is defective, true. Otherwise, assuming the batteries are identical in chemical composition, not so true....

    Yup! A 2S Lipo can provide 8.4v for the "standard" cells, and as much as 8.7 for the HV cells. I'd also agree that the servos are suspect.

    I'd likely fly the model, and see what rudder deflection if any is needed. If the model gets trimmed properly,
    the trimmed rudder position is an indicator as to what is or is not needed.

    I'm no expert on NMIH but, if memory serves the proper charge rate for a 3800mah NMIH is 380ma, unless the mfr says otherwise.
    Next, it may take several charge discharge cycles to get the battery to...

    What specific cell error message?
    Anyway, you have a 2 cell lipo. The lipo should have a balance connector and a power connector.
    Generally, both must be connected.
    If one cell is too low, you may...

    Connections, Battery, ESC, motor are the (in order) likely suspects.
    First, I'd check any and all solder joints. Then see if anything on 5v power is
    causing an abnormal load. Look at the caps on...

    You don't have to add the micro balloons! Invariably, when using 30 minute epoxy on a wing it sets up faster than you want it to. The last go around I had with a P-47 wing - - -

    One of the commonly used reasons to have more channels is the ability to assign a channel to each servo, rather than using "y" cables.
    There also are mixing schemes that involve channels that don't...

    It's possible if you have the proper RX, servos, motor speed control, etc.
    The electronics in many of the ready to use model cars and trucks are not
    very standard.

    It looks like the two red leads are connected together, as are the black leads (via a jumper)
    If so the wires are to allow series use, likely for convenience.

    The larger female pins are on the battery leads. Look at the shoulder bevels as well. Some of the EC5s had reversed bevels.

    Most of the servo noise comes from the gear train. Then, the motors and the driving pulses.
    Analog servos may be slightly quieter than the digital ones. It might be possible to replace a gear train...

    That likely will solve an immediate problem, but also begs for an answer as to why it's necessary for the SD card shipped with the 9's.
    Inquiring minds and all that! <G>

    I'd say that the symptoms are of an early life hardware failure. It looks like a loose or intermittent connection, solder joint, or some sort of thermally induced fault.

    It's certainly possible.
    unfortunately, the symptom you mention also can be caused by a bad cell.
