Great attempts Chris and I feel you're frustration - I took 6 planes to the field today only discovered 2 were flyable (dead electronics, too cold for glue to stick and cut wires). However, unlike you I crashed both of them

We all have these types of days but just remember - third time is the charm!

I have no doubt these will be in the air very, very soon with just LG damage. GIT-R-DONE!!!

Chris, maybe the batteries are part of the problem? Some of my 2+ year old batteries have no where near the punch compared to when I first got them. Even 'nanotechs' aren't immune from decay.

Yeah I think I might have to Buy New one yet again, but theses EDFs sounded weak, on the BAC-111 and DC-9 and even the 707

Is a fact cold temperature will effect lipo batteries

Chin up bro.... it'll happen in it's time. Believe me, I've had a LOT of those days and the frustration is palpable. Gotta shake it off and do it again.

Thanks for the report.
Cheers
Joe

There is a very good part to your very frustrating day. You are out there at the flying field and you are learning the things that can only be learned on the field. Everything you learn as you sort out these problems, you will incorporate into all future builds. Everything you ever build from now on will be better from what you learn from today.

I think you are completely on the right path to product improvement. Keep at it. I have no doubt that you will get it sorted out and improve your entire family of aircraft.

Best,
Robert
