    Yes. My dad hadn't been to the field or touched his batts in several days when he found one warming up on the bench. It didn't catch fire, but even the fact that it warmed up was enough to change the...

    Yup, that too. It's ridiculous how convoluted the sensor programming seems to be.

    thanks Dave. I don't want a sensor that makes guesstimates from the ECU based upon pump voltage, I'd rather have a genuine fuel flow measurement. It's been done elsewhere, just not by Futaba....

    Thanks Dave, this should be a very helpful thread indeed.

    i have two very simple wishes:
    1) A Futaba fuel flow/fuel used sensor
    2) A Futaba watts/amps/amps remaining sensor

    if neither of the...

    Most if not all reports indicate that more thrust than the 100 provides is not necessary.

    Ignoring the cost difference, the P-100 is definitely the way to go. The T is a tail heavy airplane, requiring substantial nose weight. The 100, being lighter in the back end, also means...

    I feel ya, you don't want to dork your master setup just to be able to train others on occasion, right? So let's look at what you can get rid of in the student setup:

    Dumb question! (Lol) Haven't you learned anything from the Mythers?

    1) It's obvious that because the backwards spin of the ball creates lift (it actually does, no joke) the 5kt tailwind means that...

    Float: Without reading again what others are using, I'd say that 3/16 crow doesn't sound like much and you should be able to get a lot more than 50 flap, given the hinge configuration.
