Sorry, I wasn't ignoring you, I don't have an answer for you since I use the DX7. I am just hoping you get help from a fellow DX6i user.

I don't use it for power levels, I use it for two things; to (pre)set the trimmed airspeed and to apply a little up elevator while my right hand is busy hand launching.

I have one and I never had a lick of trouble with it. The battery never was a limiting factor, and I can always make it do what I want program wise. I find it mildly troubling in fact that someone...

If something goes wrong, it's more likely to be pilot error than anything electrical or mechanical, and having a cushion to recover in is an insurance policy. The planes I fly in the park are not...

That's interesting but I don't see the point, unless they fly very low, which I wouldn't recommend doing in a public space.

Second the Stryker.

The only downside is that the way it flies and the shape tend to be a little visually ambiguous in silhouette situations sometimes. If you've been flying already you can...

I guess it depends on the machine, on my box RF 5.5 with all settings maxed (resolution 2560x1600 even) it runs around 240fps if I uncheck sync, and the physics model runs around 300 iterations per...

RealFlight comes with a Futaba branded USB control box. Just use that, it will build your muscle memory.

Should be OK but I'd strongly recommend RealFlight as a training tool before you try the real thing.

Mine is actually a 14 ounce foam pusher. As long as no one is too near I just live and let live, I don't try to act like it's some sort of orbital launch procedure or something; I've seen kites being...

How many people are permanently injured or killed in crosswalks compared to say, in parks by frisbees? Seriously. Are we saying that people who choose to walk or who cannot afford any other means of...

For me, I just go out to the park and as long as there's plenty of room I go ahead and fly. Obviously if the park is swarming with people enjoying a flea market or something it's...

Ah well I've only been at it since I was 14 or so back in 1980, so I'm not that experienced, but I generally just go ahead and fly, small, slow, and carefully. I've never had an incident of any sort....

So how would we do that? Not fly at all? There is always some risk to any activity in life. The only reason I don't actually land this way is I'd be worried about damaging the airplane.

Eh, depends on if the hit has to be "full bore" or not, I would happily fly any of my pushers into myself; a 14 ounce Wild Wing at landing velocity wouldn't even be barely FELT, let alone cause...

I've been flying Wild Wings instead mostly. They're not as sexy (hope that's family friendly) as the Stryker but they fly better in many ways.
