I am actually using it on a 20 pole Pletenberg. The plane had a CC 80HV but the ESC failed after two years of use due to a blown capacitor. I will send it along to be repaired. I had good luck in...

Hi - Thank you for the information. I will give it a try. Long, long, long time ago my first brushless controllers were the Jeti Advanced and they had the same issue. Back in those days I was not...

Thank for the tip. I did not know that. I checked the controller and it is labeled as ICE 2; so it is one of the newer ones (bought in '12). I will send it in and see what they have to say.

Hi -

I had a chance to work on the airplane and as it turns out, the controller is an ICE HV 80. Paying attention to the the beeps, I noticed that I was getting 3 beeps followed by a pause. I...

Hi -

I have not been able to check on the ESC. Things at work have been a little crazy. I should be able to hook it up the Castle Link over the holidays and get an idea of what is going on. ...

I will see if I can download the data, I do have a Castle Link somewhere. I may have to take the plane apart to get at the ESC. After the first incident, I swapped packs. I re-checked voltages and...

I believe that it was the low voltage cutoff. It was single beep, spaced about 1 second apart.

Jer,

I meant, I missed the opportunity to fly. In essence, this is the first time I have been grounded by a power system issue since converting over to electrics. The ESC can log data, but other...

ESC question - Castle HV85

Hello,

For the first time since I started flying electrics in 2006 I was not able to log a few flights due to issues with the power system. In essence, the motor would spool up to about 20% of...

I think that the wire is to help keep the upper wing from tipping up and down slightly. Maybe with the slanted strut, the connection for the strut is not able to carry moments. If that is the case,...

Hi -

I had the .50 sized version of the Groovy and it was decent flying plane. In my case, I converted it over to electric. The only thing I found objectionable in the kit was the landing gear; ...

Interesting. I thought I heard that on some of the newer planes a little of up-thrust might help. I cannot remember where I read it however. Does that make any sense?

Oops. Double post. I really liked the build quality on the Fantasista so I think that I will get the Etude. I have been considering getting the ARC version so that I can do custom colors. I have...

I think that it is a good plane but I just do not find it very appealing. If they offered an ARC version I would consider it. I have seen Mike fly one and it does fly well.

Thank you for your thoughts. I like the look of the new Fantasista and I would love to get one. However, in the back of my mind, I am still a little leery about investing $ 3.5-4K in an airplane...

Any thoughts on BJ Craft's Etude?

Hi -

I currently fly an Extreme Flight Vanquish which has served me well for the past three years. On the spur of the moment I bought a .70 sized Fantasista and I was surprised to see how well...

We have had similar discussions in our club. The stabilization systems makes the hobby more accessible; just about anyone can now "learn" how to fly. I think that in general, it is a good thing. ...

If have the funds available, a 2M plane is the way to go. Bigger does fly better. You can look at buying something used or shoot for something new. The Vanquish is at the lower end of the cost...
