You might checkout aeromicro.com. They specialize in mid to small electric airplanes, helicopters, and drones. Perry, the owner is a great resource.

Most modern radios have a NiMh, LiPo, or LiFe pack pre-assembled that plugs in. I never would trust battery holders that rely on springs to maintain contact. If going Spektrum, I second the DX9...

Dale,

On my 28X I get altitude telemetry readout on demand. I believe it needs version -0006. With earlier versions you only have sounds for up to three preset altitudes.

Those both use the standard 8-cell rectangular JR packs. Hobbyking and JR Americas should have them. The newer packs are have higher capacity so a larger-capacity charger is needed.

You nailed it. That is where I have it as well as most in our club. Indicates lift better and is easier to land. Good call.

RE: DX7s channel assignments & roller

This seems very odd. Regardless of mode, rudder and elevator should never be swapped. There is no channel assignability as with the DX18. I would give Horizon Hobby support a call.</p>

RE: DW Foamies On Axis

Woodie,

I wonder if your motor is a mis-labled 2814-8 (1100KV). That is more in line with it's specifications. The 2814-6 is spec'd out at 40 amps with a 9x5 prop. The -8 is 35 amps with an 11-8....

RE: fpv camera in cockpit. Does this give me enough view?

+1
Plus, you will find looking though the prop disk very disconcerting. The prop can cause amajor herringbone effect making it much harder to see, even without your other restrictions.

I use the "Flap System" in the JR 11X.See page 23 in the manual. When activated it sets flaps down 100%. Just change it from "D100%" to "U10%." This will give you a bit of up ailerons. You may select...

I was just asked by a flying buddy about setting dual rates using the throttle stick as the selector. Many may not be aware of this as it is not covered int the XP9303 or X9303 manual.
