Thanks Patrick, I hope that is the case. I have been able to get the leads all installed, but each had to be reduced in size. I also used multiple vendor types and still had problems. If what you...

Steve, I don't disagree with your statement, except that I have been using the same leads in the 6 channel rx without any problems. And, I have another 8 ch rx that they fit as well. This is the...

Thanks Carl,

That is eventually what I did, I used material like a 3"x5" card, but larger. I ended up pulling it out several times for adjustments and finally got it. I was hoping that there was...

Thanks, can't remember if I checked jtec or not, but will make sure to do so. The tolerances are pretty tight under the cowl. The rear carb on the DLE has the throttle, choke, Pitts can, and nose...

I am nearing the final steps on a Top Flite Cessna 182 ARF. I had the 20 on a plane that I rekitted. On it, I was running a Pitts muffler. No problem so far, except the exhaust pipes are so close...

Funny, I was just getting back on to say the Y was not the thing to do. I do have a Y on either the one of the wing functions. Just going from memory, I am pretty sure it's the aelerons because of...
