Some good news that HK won't tell you.

2. The wings came off on one flight (it was windy). I have a 4 sets of magnets, but this was not enought. I am going to use the screw holes, and try to create a sheer pin out of a bamboo skewer (perhaps split in half).

3. The other issue that I need to solve is cooling. My ESC is getting very hot. I do not really want to mount it on the outside. I want to cut air cooling intakes and exits to cool down the ESC.

Has anyone done this? Can you post pictures of your work so that I can learn from your experience. People have talked about spoon scoops. Any pictures appreciated.
1. What HK told you is not true. I have that exact same xmitter. I use the following receivers in 28 of my planes (21 6ch and 7 3ch). They all work perfectly.
3ch - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...eiver_3Ch.html
6ch - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_6Ch_V2.html

2. You might try this method (which I designed several years ago):

3. Use an external BEC. That will solve your problem:

Happy Flying.
