One thing about these electrics, once the motor is armed, moving the throttle results in instant power. And that Turnigy motor has close to one horsepower on the prop.

Bad things can happen, if you're playing with the servo directions on your transmitter, and accidentally reverse the throttle. Instant full power.

I do have a DX7 but have not gotten thru all the programming yet. I am on my third electric. Started with a converted baby ugly stik that used to have a Cox .049 on it. My second one is an apprentice 15E and have graduated to a parkzone wildcat. When I stumbled upon the electrostik I knew it had to be my next plane. I always loved the way they flew. If I could find an old Sig Kommander I would be in seventh heaven. One of my real favorites....
