They come with this equipment:
Installed
Receiver: DSM2/DSMX 6Ch UM AS3X
Receiver ESC (EFLU1264)
Servos: (1) 2.3-Gram Performance Linear Long Throw Servo (SPMSA2030L)
(2) 2.3-Gram Linear Long Throw Offset Servo (SPMSA2030LO)
(2) (SPMSA2030L) on the board
Included
Battery: 150mAh 1S 25C Li-Po
(EFLB1501S25)
Battery Charger: 1S 3.7V Li-Po (EFLC100)

I just bought one of the four my LHS had. 2ail servos, rudder, elev and gear (tow release) all set up right out of the box. The gear is wrapped in some aerodynamic looking foam; probably throw that away...

Eric,

Bring your new toy and I'll tow it behind a little foamy that I'll bring. What will I need for a tow line???

Somebody has to bring a video camera for this

I'll be there with the trusty DB. Looking forward to seeing everyone and a great day of flying.

See you all on the 9th.

Hey do I need to preregister or send somebody some $$. I’m not even sure if I’m still current on my CPA membership?
I’ll be flying - CPA Novice.

I’m bringing the Tipo; that I de-pumped and added a correct ST60x carb (MUCH more stable on the needle) and the DB ARF with a new ‘hush tip’ power reduction unit for the vintage Kraft. Still trying to prop it; I no-likey… The Mystery Ship is in for repairs. I noticed after Riverside the pipe is loose in its internal mount. Hopefully I didn’t blow another coupler. I have to strip out all the gear to get to it… again.
See y’all next week!
Eric
P.S. I’ll bring my little foam glider for Doug to drag around. Think the E-Conquest can pull it?? Naaa…

Eric,
You can pre-register here:
http://nsrca.us/index.php/events/lis...594&Itemid=391

CPA membership is not required.

You pay at sign up, altough if you really feel a need, you can paypal me a bunch of cash and I'll mark you as paid

Yea, it comes with a spool of tow line. Fishing line works good. Last time I towed was back in the 80's; my buddy's Gentle Lady with my Coverite GeeBee Sportster.
Hey, they said we couldn't do it...

Ok.....T minus three days and all systems are "go" for me.

How about some details on time etc.

How is the weather looking? It was colder than balls last year.

I'm looking forward to seeing you guys and doing some old-fashioned pattern flying.

I will be solo. I struck out on bring anybody along for the ride.

Doug,
We are ordering up extra special cold weather just for you. I had requested "colder that a well digger's ass", but I will change my order to "balls".

Time: Maybe Tony will chime in here (He is the CD) but I would suspect that we will get underway by 9:00. Get there early and get in a shake out flight.

Well it's just a few days to the last pattern contest of the D-7 season. Right now the weather forecast looks great, so we should have some fun!

If you're coming you please send me an email at frackowiak@sbcglobal.net.

All the CPA classes will be offered. I am planning on starting around 9:00. We are also planning on having lunch available at the field.

Hope to see you there!

Your tow plane is ready to be put into service. Will this "tow hook" work?
