For the Horizon Hobby guys:

Some interesting questions about the new airplanes that have not been released yet, and sadly not answered yet! Even if you can answer only one of those questions, please do.

Carbon Cub:
- Can I switch the lights on and off from the transmitter? (Are the lights always on?. Is there a switch?) Answered, check post 1 of this thread or #393... Thank you Seth
- Is the receiver programmable like the Mig? Answered, check post 1 of this thread or #393... Thank you Seth
- Since it's a servo, I guess you can you also program the flaps so they go up instead of down? Answered, check post 1 of this thread or #393... Thank you Seth

Spitfire:
- Is the receiver programmable like the Mig? Answered, check post 1 of this thread or #393... Thank you Seth
- Have you tried the receiver in some of your older products like the XP, 4-Site, Extra, etc... Hoping it would work on one of theml like the same Gee Bee/Beast receiver work on both airframe?
- Watching the video, it appears that the Spit may use a larger motor than the XP, F4U, etc., given that the AUW is 1.6 oz. Plus, it's spinning a 4x4 four-blade prop, which makes one think that it may use a larger motor. The mCP X main motor, perhaps? Motor is a typical 1S motor (part number is same as Mustang)
- If the motor is bigger, what's the rating on the ESC? Same motor as usual. Not relevant anymore.

ASK-21 glider:
- Is the receiver programmable like the Mig? (on the picture, it doesn't seem so, since there's no X-Port?...) Answered, check post 1 of this thread or #393... Thank you Seth
- Is there a brushed ESC onboard???? YES, but On the picture, there's a small black connector with 3 pins! Does that mean you could also connect a brushless ESC to that connector like on previous AR6400 type receivers?
- Any plans to offer a motor/folding prop combo eventually? Did you ever considerate it?
- Can you show us the High-Start launch system? Would like to see more, we don't see enough in the video....
- Will the AS3X gyro system mask the normal "signs" for lift? is it going to be over compensating to the point that traditional signals are no longer seen in the flight?
- Is there anything that tell you the battery is getting too low?

General questions:

- It would be nice to know who's the lead guy for each of those airplanes? (It's always nice to know who's baby it is!)
- Do you know that some of your fans are flying the orignal 2S receivers (Beast, Sbach, Stryker) and the new AS3X Beast 3D receiver on 3 cell batteries (3S)? Was it something you always had in mind? Any reason why you're not advertising it?
- What's the big deal with the new OFFSET servo that just showed up in all the new airplanes??? Can you tell us more about why you're using them now? Answered, check post 1 of this thread or #393... Thank you Seth
