A little further along. Painted. Still have to modify a servo arm with longer outputs for the rudder, which isn't an ideal setup, but should work, and will get tailwheel steering as well.Then just...

I couldn't believe it. An overcast morning here in lovely San Diego, when suddenly I hear a rolling, rumbling, roar. Could that be? Is it really? Growing up in the midwest, I've heard it so often but...

Of course there's a possibility, but we're trying to figure that out. Did you try the thing from my earlier post? Maybe there's something specific to the HURC esc's I'm not aware of.

Do you get any tones out of the motor at power up? If not, it's not arming probably because the esc isn't seeing an idle signal from the tx. Try powering up, then click the throttle trim down a few...
