Agrav8ed the Jeti REX12 A (assist) has gyro built in. The AR Smart Switch controls and balances the power from 2 batteries and displays mah used and voltage of both batteries. Mah used during current flight and total used since batteries charged.

I have my landing flaps as far as they will go, or the thing just keeps flying because it won't slow down.

As always it depends on the turbine idle thrust, there is a huge variation.

Anyone have pics of how you are running wires from the tail to your RX around the thrust tube and turbine area (2M Rebel)?

There are pictures above! But I run them either side ( not all one side) and they pass the tail pipe cone just under the turbine rails. Where I run down the rear fuselage I always run them at 5 & 7 O’clock as liquid fuel would be burning at the bottom or heat rising over the top is more likely to damage wires.

I am picking up a Rebel 2m with the Infinity scheme. I have a P130-rx for it.
What torque should the servo be?

I'm running mine on 277 oz-in servos with no problems with a K140 G2

Not enough residual with a K-140 G2 to make a difference. It's just a slippery airframe. Using max travel in the flap sure makes a nice smooth slow landing.

Mine came yesterday. It is the original Infinity paint scheme. It is so big! 7ft long fuselage.
I got the ARF kit with the gear, pipe and tank installed. The landing gear is held in with wood screws. Will these be okay?

The screws will be perfectly OK. I prefer them to blind nuts. The screws will pull out of the word rather than having the entire gear plate pulled out of the wing. Much easier repair afterwards.

I have over 250 flights on the wood screws that came with mine ordered the same way.
