Mine has 4 1/4 oz stick on weights in the cowl and the wing is attached in the second tube. This works real good.

RE: Receiver Problems?? Help!!!

Not all esc have safety switches. Usually the rtf like Hitec have safety switches but if you buy an esc the majority of the time they will need a switch put in line for a safety switch.

RE: Receiver Problems?? Help!!!

Try turning your transmitter on first then then plugging in the battery. If this doesn't work then I would say look at the esc for problems.

RE: Speed 400

Using a long can speed 400 motor will take care of the extra voltage from a 10 cell pack. I'm using 11.1 1500 mah packs without problems

Slow Stick Speed Control

Batteries sure could be your problem. I suggest discharging the pack then use 75 ma to charge it back up. This on most packs will even them out and has even made radio glitches go away.

crazy max esc for 4 servos

Using the 15 amp esc, if overloaded will shut the motor down. I don't think you will have problems especially if the motor doesn't pull more than 10 amps. A speed 400 will pull 10 amps and a speed...

Motor problem question for my Horsefly Hobbies Gee Bee ?

With 11.4 volts you will fry the GWS motor. Go to 6 or 7 volts and you should be ok. 11.4 volts is a long way from 6 volts.

Is 8 cell NimH pack safe for GWS A-10??

I saw an A 10 fly last weekend and the guy was using 8 cell nimh which worked well. As for flying slower I'm not to sure any slower is what you would be looking for in this jet model.

They can be timed by rotating the back plate clockwise until the tabs won't go any further. What good it does I'm not sure I saw any deal of difference. I know the watts output wasn't any better and...
