We found one minor glitch in that setup, it doesn't have an adjustable mAh output, so you'd be charging close to 2C (unless your AD with the DLB).

So here is the question. I have proven this rx @ 1 mile. If in the B3 I have signal in any orientaion @ 800' I should have it at 1 mile????

For my test I powered on the RX with flaps deployed and the tails @ full throws. If there was a loss of signal that is the position it went to. The only time that happened was behind the hill.

Thanks for your help Jim.
Jon, you're welcome. I really wanted to see her fly today, but I understand not wanting to maiden in the "gale" . Well really it was only 14~20mph.

While AD was on a call I started working on the launch trying to stay on the balls of my feet, and it was showing some improved launch height. Then just before launch I caught sight of a thermal indicator flying through about 60' above the houses, well within launch reach. I threw directly into the thermal and circled around with this hawk till I couldn't tell orientation any longer, had to be 1/4 mile or more down wind and 600' up. Threw it into speed mode and she came right home. That was one of the coolest flights I've had, circling with that hawk, I was even polite enough to let him set the direction of turns since he was there first.
