RE: Elevon programming trouble

Thanks guys. The DX6i elevon setting is only on or off, no tinkering. The switching of leads did the trick. Either the book is wrong (same instructions in the DX5e book) or the radio is dislexic. ...

With the downfall of the local hobbyshops, finding things to finish the build is a neverending quest. I build from plans. The ones that are in FlyRC magazine are fun. It takes a while to figure...

RE: Radio Setup

A basic rule of thumb is: 100% high/75% low and depending on your experience level, 20% to 45% expo. I am new in the intermediate ranks and use 40-45% expo on my Extra.

RE: tritles cessna 180

:DRighty-O. I think I would extend the motor leads. The ESC's are too prone to sustain damage from heat and static electricity. I have been considering some Tritle kits but you give me pause. What...

RE: tritles cessna 180

RE: Consequences of flying at a non-sactioned field?

I have just this one point to make and then you can get back to your discussion. The AMA does not sanction fields. It sanctions clubs. [>:]
