Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

Be careful with the throw settings on the transmitter. According to Troy Built Models, the throws at the transmitter should not be set over 120% when using the Hitec 5955 TG. I have copied their cautionary note below. Apparently any setting over 120% causes problems.
I have never heard that before. Though Gene typically knows what he's talking about, I checked in the Hitec support forum and could not find anything on limiting travel for the 5955. Here's a semi-relevant bit of info from Mike Mayberry:

"The only difference between the 5995 and 5955 is the lack of the heatsink case and travel. The 5995 is set for 180 degrees of travel so you should use the programmer to reduce this and not the radio or you will lose resolution. "

This may be part of the confusion.

BTW, I have a 5955 on my rudder and it is set to 140%, and so far I have not had any issues.
