I frequently run dual batteries myself, without a y-harness: I simply plug them into any available channel. Redundancy is always good. Didn't use dual batteries on this model, though.

No, I did not recharge the battery. The readings were done about 24 hours after the crash.

I know. Too bad they don't come with a reset button as well, as in a flight simulator. :)

Of course, that depends on how long the flights are. The fuel tanks on the TwinStar are quite small, not allowing longer flights than around 7 minutes. Previously, I've done 9 flights on one charge...

Gentlemen, thank you for your input. Who knows, it may have been the battery, despite the fact that it wasn't very old. I'll give it a cycle and see what I can find. The plane did have an onboard...

Good questions. Alas, no, I didn't test the battery after the crash. The battery was a fairly new (8-9 months old) Eneloop 2000mAh.

Thanks for your comments. Yes, it could still be the transmitter. I guess I will have to keep an eye on it and just use it for foamies for a while. Fortunately, I have an old HiTec 35MHz transmitter...

Yes, you can, as long as the hole in the washer is the right size (i.e. not too large).

I would imagine that the methanol will be pretty much invisible in the absence of bubbles, but I'm fairly sure you will see the bubbles if there are any. Think soda pop (e.g. Sprite) in a glass ---...
