I notice on the HH website that a new (?) FC version is coming that is almost fully assembled. The price seems high, however, for such a goofy foamie.

Funny how if you add it I probably spent...

I had similar problems with mine. Then the propeller fell off. Then it wouldn't bind to the the tx anymore. I took it back and got a refund.

A valuable thread for us greys. So it's not a depth perception problem, it's a vision detail problem due to my eyes going in the crapper (at 50). Which also explains why I lose track of plane...

On the way up to the family cottage I stopped to take a picture of this bird (first thumbnail), since it reminded me of something. Yes, I had my Fun Cub with me, newly decked out with floats....

At the risk of cross-posting...exactly three of mine, before I gave up on the DX5e and upgraded. Luckily they were smallish foamies and repairable.

A worthy thread. Much as I loved my DX5e when I first got back into RC, it was eventually prone to cutting out, unbinding, etc, as above, and caused a few crashes. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...

Maybe it's just me, but I've snapped the motor shaft in two twice, so far. Both times during bad landings. Luckily they are cheap (from Headsup) and replacement takes only minutes -- good to have a...

Not gone -- just not flying WWI stuff right now. I am currently honing my skills by crashing a high-wing foamie so that I won't (hopefully) mangle my balsa monokote DVII (yet again).

My Fun Cub rolls smartly along its longitudinal axis when the aileron stick is yanked right, but the plane falls away in an ugly corkscrew if the stick is yanked left. Just curious. I gather this has...

Oh, and another thing, the FC uses a lot of those set-screw type servo connectors. So use loc-tite and check them periodically, because they can work themselves loose.
