Oh, the contest is running until the 30th? I meant to say that paint will take 2 weeks to fully cure! :D

Hope the lack of a maiden report isn't a bad omen? Hope it went well, or seeing as we...

Looks great, Chellie! But I really think you ought to give it about 2 days for the paint to fully dry. ;-) :D

Good luck with the maiden!

Looks nice. Brilliant use of that 'I Can Fly' model. You've really captured the look of the 337. Good work!

It all depends. As I upgraded, I sold off my older tx's. Nothing wrong with them other than I outgrew them. But I know where you're coming from, fireman. I'm that way about cars!

Doesn't look good at all. Fully charged, each cell should be close to 4.2v. Remember, 3.8-3.85v per cell storage charge? (3s batt fully charged should be around 12.6v total.) Some are below that...

Lol! You searched for my pet peeve, didn't you? No. The process of binding only makes the tx and rx talk to each other on that model memory. They are either bound or not. The only thing it will do on...

Oh yeah. They rename them on the screen. I think like I said, it winds up on the gear port of the rx. When all else fails, try the different plugs and see what works!

Go to your Monitor page and make sure there are 2 channels moving when you move the ail. Then see what that other channel, the one that's not AIL, is. IIRC, it may use the gear output.

As far as the balance charging, sounds like you were pushing your charger to its limits. 12.6v*6A=75.6w. Probably why it was limiting itself in amps. I...
