    I think you are still in good shape. A guy put together a DX8 to the newer Airware transmitter conversion program. I used it to convert my DX8 files to my DX9 and it worked without a single glitch...

    Weird servo problem

    This is the case of a JR DS285MG HV servo working with a Turnigy servo tester and not with several Spektrum receivers.

    It is installed as an aileron servo in a DLG glider and had been working...

    How price sensitive are you? The stuff the other guy ordered is mainstream and will work fine.

    You can also get started a for a lot lower cost and figure out where to go from there.

    All good stuff. It will hit your budget hard, especially when it doesn't include an aircraft.

    I would really hate to see an eagle cut up by a carbon fiber prop. Unless you know there is a specific impending danger I wouldn't risk an eagle.

    Didn't the FAA rep at the recent meeting say something about the guidelines being poorly worded? (I think I read something about that).

    Let's all agree that it was poorly worded, at best. They...

    Ball hex drivers are much nicer to use, due to their ability to work from a variety of angles. They are, however, going to wear out or break sooner than a non-ball tip hex driver.

    Whenever you have a cluster of failures that are way outside of the "normal" failure statistics, it is very probable that there are other factors involved.

    I'm interested in these results but I want to make sure that I understand them. Real world testing to failure is pretty rare.

    Watt rating, not volts, is the real limiting factor. However, that isn't very practical based upon the actual duty cycle of the servos. But you have to start somewhere, and since the manufacturers...

    Yes. But here's the interesting point, the servos aren't doing a whole lot of moving when you power up the plane for the first flight of the day. Other than the weight of the control surfaces and any...

    John, I originally had the same concern. After some research, and what Baracuda points out, I am very comfortable using A123 packs on servos that have a 6 volt rating. I think it is safe to say that...
