RE: Can Anyone help?

Sounds like a bad setup to me. Heat is only ever made by over amping.

Im guessing the heli is collective pitch? if so, use this setup on the ESC:

9v cutoff
Insensitive current draw

RE: Can Anyone help?

RE: Aileron flutter Fliton Inspire 60, what now?

ball link at the servo end is IMO a very good idea, a clevis cannot bend in the up/down plain, so as you move the aileron, the hight of the control horn relative to the servo arm changes. This means...

RE: Extreme Flight RC Yak 54 - 74 inch!

alu one is pretty good IMO. Its bendy, but it puts no force really on the UC plate. With a 12.5lbs electric model, with 2lbs of lipos sitting right over the UC, its a pretty good deal IMO. All it...
