No, the gray props face the front of the unit. Where the red trap door is for inserting the batteries.
It behaves as if the red props (back of the unit) have no power and the unit flops over on the...

RE: F-27 Stryker dolly?

Does the dolly just fall off right after it gets airborne? Or, does the plane just rises above the pegs?

RE: Need Help with Eflite ESC

It's a 2.4ghz Spektrum transmitter. I will check fail safe, but I have five other planes and no problem with them.

RE: Eratix by Eflite

Yes, a Power 25 with 4S pack would have enough power to 3D. It would still give you good sports flying with a 3S pack.
I have an Eflite Ultra Stick with a Power 25 and it screams with 4S packs.

RE: E Flite Eratix 3D 25e ARF Owners Club

IdeaBeing is right. The Eratix is a great slow flyer. Unless you reinforce the ailerons, you are looking for trouble with aileron flutters and wing damage at high speed.
It's the closest thing to...

RE: E Flite Eratix 3D 25e ARF Owners Club

The Power 32 motor runs around 800 watts, so you have to have a battery that handles that much power. So, if the maximum power that the battery can deliver is 500 watts, then your Power 32 will not...

RE: Eflite 450 brushless motor question

Heck I have a pair in my airliner that will only arm if the tx throttle is held at WOT when the packs are installed. I get the beeps, then have to move the throttle back to off and then the esc's...

RE: Eflite 450 brushless motor question

I don't think it's a weak pack because it does the same thing with several other packs.
I'm going to check the rpm's and compare them to specs. Perhaps it reaches maximum rpm at 1/2 throttle (?)....

I'm using an Eflite 40 amp ESC.
I will look into setting throttle range.
I do fly several other planes and I don't have any problems with the throttle range.

Eflite 450 brushless motor question

I'm using an Eflite 450 with my new Alpha Sport 450.
The 450 accelerates properly from zero throttle to 50% throttle. From then on, there is no increase in rpm.
Has anyone encountered this...

RE: Eratix by Eflite

I fly my Eratix on windy days also and had some rough landings one of which tore off the landing gear. After I repaired the damage, I decided to replace the landing gear with 1/8 wire. This set up...

RE: Eratix by Eflite

The bottom of one of my Eratix wings suffered something similar. After many flights, the covering became loose and tore a good part of it. Fortunately, I heard the flopping sound and was able to...

Eratix by Eflite

Is anyone still flying the Eratix? I have not seen any new posts in a long time.

I have several planes and this is my favorite one. I think itt can be classified as a 3D trainer.

RE: Precision Aerobatics Addiction X Video & Photos

Thanks for the information. I do use 14.8V 2200 mah packs on my Eratix for better hovering and get almost 8 minutes out of it most of the time.
I've tried 11.1V packs OK for regular sport flying,...

I was looking at the specs and it recommends the use of a 3-cell, 2200mah li-po with the Trust 40 motor. Is that right?
I use a 4-cell, 3000mah li-po with my Eflite Power 32 motor. Can't imagine...

I fly mine with a 14X7E prop. Lots of power when needed.
I reinforced the landing gear when assembling the Eratix. So far, it has survived a few rough grass landings on windy days.
I just...

RE: E Flite Eratix 3D 25e ARF Owners Club

Yes, the landing gear area should be reinforced, especially if you fly on windy days (as I do) and can't avoid some of the rough landings. I reglued all the joints as well as I could and glued a...
