3s LiPo was a bit too much for this one; now it has a big old linear voltage regulator in it.

I like to fix things. Sometimes even when they don't need fixing.

If or when I buy one it will get a 2s LiIon or 2s LiFe pack per Xjet.

Manual here stick mode swap is possible here.

Buy here: Mode 1 or Mode 2 -> I get points, thanks.

I speak some German so: Knüppel is bat or control stick, tuning is tuning

Sometimes I wish I was still living in my parent's basement and had loads of time for building models. (actually I never have lived in a basement)

HAHAHAHAHA no. I would not trade anything for my beautiful, intelligent and caring wife and daughter.

Not much time, as when I'm not a homemaker I'm making homes; renovating mine own and installing home automation in others.

I renovate anything between the basement drains and chimney, learned lots.

Formally I am an Electronics Technologist, and spent a decade designing and building test equipment and prototypes as well as conforming and touring UL, CSA and ESA around our plant. We built printers, big ones, really big ones. i.e. fill a 44 foot trailer, 50kW, 2000 ppm...
