Has anyone bought a Receiver lately? seems like only www.exceed-rc.com has them, and I want to know if they really have it, or maybe they haven't updated the website.

As soon as anyone tells me, I'm getting it from them.

Thanx

Thanks a lot Rdrunner, I did that and just ordered it after they confirmed that they had it. I've been waiting for quite a while for other stores to have it in stock.

I dunno whoever was looking for a new 4 in 1 because the others were out of stock, but this one will work and is $50 plus $10 s&h and would probably take about 2 weeks to arrive at your door. They also have alot of other discount parts there too, just about anything you could want.

I'm still waiting for Exceedrc to ship my receiver, I ordered it june 19th, and they haven't sent it yet (its june 26th today). It probably isn't a good idea to order from them! On the other hand I ordered another falcon 40 with lots of replacement parts for a cousin from raidentech june 20th and received it today.

I'm planning on canceling the order and getting the 4 in 1 mentioned above, will my crystals and tx work fine with it??

Thanx.

Oh I couldn't agree more. One thing thats great about the Falcon 40 is theres not much setup required to get airborne. Not so on a precision made collective heli like a Trex 450. If it wasn't for those Finless Videos, I would still be scratching my head trying to dial in a gyro or a throttle curve program on the transmitter.

Has anybody seen the newest issue of the R/C Heli Magazine? Its loaded with great info this month with some clear explanations about rotor theory as well as gyro setups. I only wish this issue came out a year earlier for me... Well, theres a lot to be said for learning on your own but why does it have to take so long????
Oh, and today was a great day for me as I went to a job interview at 4:00 pm and was offered the position via a phone call by 7:30 tonight. I sign my contract tomorrow afternoon. Had my previous job for 9 yrs and it was time for a change. And today, I finally got my work bench finished and have a real place to build more helis. Its a solid-core door workbench thats only 2'deep x 7' wide complete with pegboards and my very own electrical outlet. NO MORE EXTENSION CORDS!!!! Its really hot in that utility room and I don't really care. I do keep my lipos in the house though as they are more deserving of special treatment than I am. I don't know what to do with myself as life is very good right now !!!!!!! Think about it, a job and a workbench, what more does a guy need ???? Uh, how about a few more helis huh???? [sm=72_72.gif]

Hope all is well with the Falcon 40 crew out there.

Warmest regards,
Robo

Robo, wow new job, new work bench, the only thing left to do is buy more toys! I also installed an electrical outlet on my workbench along with a 4' overhead florescent light, best thing I ever did, these Falcon 40 parts are tiny!

Congratulations on your new job and workbench- I finally flew the Falcon 40 after all this time. I am about to buy a CP Heli, I am looking at the Eskey Honeybee King2 or the Eflight Pro. Local HS sell the E Flight but reading all forums I am leaning to the Honeybee King2. It has a belt driven tail rotor and sells for less, and is sold here in US byJagmodels.com Any input from you would ne appreciated Rigger Bill

Riggerbill, I too have been looking at the King 2. I have a lot more training to do before I go to CP. I am not a heli expert by any means so my opinion isn’t worth much. The E-Flite CP would be nice because your LHS sells it therefore they should stock replacement parts, not as much to order and pay shipping on. The King 2 would be my choice because of the belt drive tail, separate Rx, gyro and ESC; I’m not a big fan of the all-in-one units. As far as size they are very close. Price difference CP $250 plus tax, King 2 $170 plus shipping. I guess it boils done to what makes you happy.

Well thats interesting, as I too have been wanting to get a king V2 lately. Like the idea of a cheaper Lipo battery pack than the expensive packs the Trex needs (3s-2100mAh) Only problem is that they are always out of stock in the US.

Found a few overseas with reasonable shipping (thanks to those who posted links here)

I want a bare-bones kit and use my own electronics.

Gonna go with the ESKY 3900kv motor and not the 3800kv unit.

Dont want to spend $150 on a fancy gyro, thinking about trying the Telebee gyro as a budget alternative. Anyone have any input on this subject????

Oh, and theres a King V2 thread at RC Groups that is very active.

Glad your back in the air Bill, thought of you the other day as we had a guy in a Kitplane land at our RC club field. We used his plane to drop candy for the kids who came to the big memorial Fly-in we hosted.

And yes, I gotta get me one of those fancy 48" shop lights too!!!!!

Sounds like everyone is doing good out there.

Robo

hehe, charge it up robo =) pull out that plastic

I dunno how much you are looking to spend, but the lt2100 is supposed to be a very good gyro for electrics. It's also alot lighter than the 401, (27g compared to 10g). It runs about 100 shipped. The reviews I've read on it actually compare it to a 401, and one of the reviews I read actually the guy said he took off the 401 for the review but the lt2100 actually did so well that it wasn't worth it to him to take it off and put the 401 back on =)

I've heard bad things about tail drifting with the g90 and the telebee gyros, although I suspect the g90 is a good step up from the telebee.

All that's hearsay though, I don't even own a HH gyro =P

if you edit your link by right clicking on it and then selecting properties you'll have something in there like this

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_48...page_53/tm.htm

put in page # 67 where page # 53 was like this

Same thing happened to me as well.

I was like, DANG !!! I skip a day or two and those guys jump ahead 20 pages on me.

Oh and I am now the proud owner of a 6000Btu Window unit.

It actually uses less juice than the 5000Btu model

Its all about SEER numbers.

Well, all I know is its got a remote incase my lazy but doesnt want to walk 3 feet to adjust a knob manually.

Congrats on your new job! Now that you have everything set up just the way you want it (A/C, workbench, outlets, etc...) you should repair all of our receivers, and resell them to us, I bet most of us have a bad receiver, and wouldn't hurt to keep one as a spare .
Just an idea
