I imported QQ's UMX Beast settings this morning. Maybe I can get the plane up in the air this weekend. It's too bad I didn't wait a little longer and buy the AS3X Beast, but this model should still be fun.

I had a lot of fun maidening the Edge 540 the morning of 11/19/2011. It's a very responsive plane that has great pull out when you need it. I'm still trying to dial in the CG with my Turnigy 500 mAH 2s batteries at 37g each.

First few harriers under the soccer goal frame went fine, and then I came under the goal a little to fast... Took some time to make a Welder Glue hinge and stabilize the aileron servo (fortunate I used a metal gear servo that didn't strip), but the plane is flying again.

Increased expo on high rates for my ailerons and rudder, and it made harrier and inverted harrier flying a lot smoother. Trying to get my inverted harriers as easy to fly as my normal harries. I'll be doing a lot of figure 8s in the next month. My goal is to eventually progress to rolling harriers.

I blew out the charging circuitry of my DX8 today when I connected my DX8 with the Radical RC JR / Spektrum 4.8V Transmitter Charge Cord to my Bantam B6 and tried to charge at 1000mAh or 1A. I had charged at 1A before with my DX7, so I thought 1A wouldn't be a problem. When I tried 1A with the DX8, I heard a pop and smelled electronics burning. Upon further reading, it looks like there's charging circuitry in the DX8 which should only be charged at 200mAh, so the charge cord would have been fine at 200mAh. Now, when I try to charge with the normal charger, I just get a blinking blue LED light instead of a solid blue LED light. At least the DX8 still powers up okay. Now I'll have to physically remove the battery to charge, but that's fine since a big reason I got the charge cord was to charge at a higher rate than 200mAh. I ordered the JR/SPecktrum White TX Plug Direct Charge Cord to do this for the included the NIMH battery and potentially for the LIPO battery.
