Flew the 57 SC this afternoon for three flights. New servo is good all trimmed and flying normal again.

Just created a YouTube account and uploaded the first two vids.

Can somebody please tell me how to get rid of Thumbnails or Upload my own Thumbnail for the Cover pic??

If signed into YouTube, go to your video manager, click 'edit' on the video you want to edit, then 'custom thumbnail' to upload the one you want... if you don't like any of the default pics.

After clicking on Edit, Don't see "custom thumbnail", just the three defaulted ones they picked.

Oh, sorry. You have to be a YT partner, or have a monetized channel, and have no copyright strikes. My bad.
If you've just created it... give it some weeks/months and keep the acct. in good standing and you will eventually get it.

Then you can adjust the trim step down to fine tune it without loosing your current trim setting.

Go into the linkage menu and go to the second page. Then scroll down to T1-T4 SET. Then drop the step on T1, T2, and T4 down to 1. (Default is 4). T3 is throttle so no reason to adjust the trim step on that.
Nice, that's even better. I had been re-centering my trims to 0 using subtrim and then dropping the trim rate down to get it finer, but this would be less work.
