I believe it was stated that the servos jump, so clearly power is getting through to them. Best bet is to take the esc from the other plane. As it is coming from a larger 70mm edf, then it shouldn't...

Most are, access programming through max throttle at initializing. You'll need a different battery though, try 3s. I don't think that would be an issue as most escs are set at auto detect, and beep...

It's not quite the same. Flight stabilizers are something like the AS3X, which doesn't actually making flying easier, but reduces the effects of wind, so a smaller, lighter airframe can be flown in a...

Make sure to give the rudder lots of throw. With the lack of dihedral you may need it. Good throw on ailerons may help to. Of course add expo, but having high max throws could help if you find you...
