RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

yeah that sounds right there Ralph if the collar that is on the wire slipped then you would "move" your range down or up but not affect the travel if the range was set to -1 to +9 then that is...

Grats on the Nice flying Roger, Sorry to here about your charger tho. I use a Robbe (I think this is Futaba in Germany) setup for charging and it works real well. The only thing is the daisy chain I...

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

Roger,

I hope your new battery comes in fast. Bad LiPos can be extremely dangerous. I am not trying to scare you. You just need to be aware of it. If a 3cell Lipo drops below 3 volts per cell it...

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

Soak it in salt water and throw it in the garbage.

RE: DX-7 and 6000 receiver went into failsafe mode

It could be that ralph. If you can get your hands on some diagnostic equipment it may be a good idea to see what sort of draws you have.

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

Hey Roger,

I just looked at my Falcon and the Two unused balls on the stationary swashplate are on the forward side of the heli and not aft as yours were.

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

Hey Critterz

I think I may have the same combo from Helidirect? What size ESC did you get? I got an Align 25A and it is not really getting warm at all even after 3 battery packs. The Stock would...

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

I dont think so Jerry Ground effect will mostly just cause you to fly all over the place as the winds created from the falcon literally blow it all over the place. The only other thing I can think of...

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

You might want to check your pinion Gear and make sure its not loose. Other than that I would recommend you return it if its new.

RE: DX-7 and 6000 receiver went into failsafe mode

OUCH!

I regularly am Hovering arround 10.5 volts :( I guess that is a very bad practice to do then. It may be what happened to yours Ralph. Thanks for that Info Darkside!

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

I think he is talking about the Lever... The Lever being perpendicular to the Boom will give you the center of travel (roughly) of the tail. You then set you "neutral" with trim in a hover. Keep in...

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

Hey Ralph,

It sounds as if you got too far away from your Heli with the dx7 using the park flyer receiver (ar6000) I am not sure what range the park flyers have. The receiver will go into a fail...

RE: New Mini Electric is here the Falcon 3D!!

I have a buddy that has an M5, he loves it too. I don't care for BMW myself tho. Too much maintenance involved, kinda like American Cars. I like Japanese Cars.

Good Luck with your flying Ralph...
