Bill,
Glad to hear you got the Abbra flying, how do you like it? I do want to see the Emotec gadget before I make my final decision on which way to go. I could use a little "Blue" you know. We should arrange with Steve for all of us to get together for some trimming, and practice in the next few weeks.

Do any of you have clip spring loaded canopy catches? I do and have my batteries unhooked inside the plane, pop the hatch plug battery together, pop the hatch back on, arm the ESC on the TX switch and go. Isnt much effort.

My plane does not have a top hatch. I have to turn the plane over, plug in the packs, slide the belly pan on and secure it in place. Then turn the plane back over, etc.

For me an arming switch or some other type of failsafe is the way to go.

You are welcome at OCMA any time. We prefer the afternoon times.

Hi Jason,
after seeing your arming system the other day, I ordered one for my spitfire. I also got some round plugs and sockets. Thansk for the help.

Regards

No worries Tom,

I'll have to order another one myself for my Black Magic.

Did you buy yours locally or overseas?

Cheers
Jason.
