RE: ASP .91 > DLE-20 ??

How did you decide that in my airplane that the components needed to run the engine that "Most of it was totally unnecessary." ???

You have to use foam to protect the ignition and the battery,...

RE: ASP .91 > DLE-20 ??

It isn't heavier? Are you sure?

The DLE has more mass farther forward than the AX just in the construction of the engine. Add a 5.5oz ignition battery to run the DLE, and 4 ozs difference in the...

RE: Pretty Disgusted with Sellers on RCU

An update on one of the engines.

The seller that sold me the YS 1.10FZ has stepped up to the plate and reimbursed me for the repair bill at YS!
That is a stand up guy right there...!

RE: ASP .91 > DLE-20 ??

For what it's worth, I replaced a OS. 1.20AX with a DLE-20 on a Seagull Ultimate 90arf. The DLE-20 is no comparision to the OS 1.20AX. The Ultimate got heavier (9lbs 11ozs to 11lbs 2.0ozs) updating...

RE: Pretty Disgusted with Sellers on RCU

I wasn't calling anyone out and I didn't intend to include any links that I was aware of. I just copied the actual name of the item from my offer list. I was simply going thru the list and grabbed...

It's funny. I try to go out on a limb and try to do something positive and looks like guys trying to bash my efforts! I never said the "container" was from GW. If you all must know, it was a...

RE: DLE-20 Ignition Module Bad ???

Noty trying to rude? I guess it just comes naturally without trying then?

Who was "fixing" a new engine? I was double checking the ignition timing. This is imperitive especially because in the...

RE: A123 Question

I will look into it, thanks. When I check the battery voltage with a meter after charging (usually 15 or 20 minutes later when I am going over the plane), it is usually reads around the low 7 volts.

RE: A123 Question

Yes, it automatically detects the LiFe batt over the Li-Po and goes into auto mode. It always reads 8.38V when the charge cycle is complete. During charging it is around 7 to 7.5v.
Battery "B" took...

RE: A123 Question

For the naysayers......

One 12 minute flight and probably another 6 or 8 minutes of "on" time, warming it up and pre-flight (also dropped some expo and increased throws before my flight).

RE: A123 Question

Well of yes, 30cc has nothing to do with it, unless of course you figure the flight loads on a 12lbs airplane versus a 35lb plane and what that does for battery consumption.

Nothing is out of...

RE: A123 Question

I run a pair of 2300mah A123's in my 30cc MX2 for the RX and servos. I run 6 Hitec 5645 Servos and I can put over an hour, 60 minutes of "ON" time on those packs and barely put 200Mah back in them,...

RE: DLE-20 Ignition Module Bad ???

There is zero energy at all being produced. I am certain the module is dead at this point.
This Ultimate has been rough. A wing panel with no wing bolt insert, took 3 cowls to get one delivered that...

RE: DLE-20 Ignition Module Bad ???

Normally I'd check for a pulse on the sensor with my fluke meter, but it was damaged accidentally so I have no meter at all.
I did manually jump the sensor, nothing I do fires the module. It is, as...

RE: DLE-20 Ignition Module Bad ???
