I hit the credit card last weekend... from HK: twoTurnigy Nano-tech 3000mAh 4S 24C-50C lipos and various sizes of Turnigy ultra-light wood props and from HW/Falconsekido a Platinum 80A ESC (nice price). I've gone through 3 ESCs (1 burnout, 2 in water) this season and am tired of paying Castle prices. Also a new fuselage from Horizon since this one is looking pretty beat up after two major crashes. If it makes it to the end of the season in one piece I'll rebuild it over the winter.

Was a bit tricky to trim after the last major nose repair and hard to tell the result in the 15-20mph gusts we had. It was also the first time out with the HS-82MGs on the ailerons and it seemed to have a problem centering. I suspect I may have over tightened the aileron hinges, or possibly glued one or more of the hinge points out of alignment causing some binding. The servos buzz and I don't think they should.
