Here's the easiest way to get it all done. 17 minute video...

Set timing to low if I am remembering correctly. My buddy's waco studdered really bad, and setting timing fixed it. My Dynam PBY on stock motors...same thing. Timing again. If you don't have the programming card, I highly recommend it.

The same card works on: Dynam, Turnigy Plush, Hobbywing, and HURC ESCs. Well worth it.

I usually set my dynam combos to default like Ryan shows in the video. Totally kills the studder and performs well thereafter.

That Waco of my friends was the first time I had ever seen an average kv motor (500-1100) set to anything but low. Even some high pusher jet/edf motors like 5000kv call for low timing, as they say high timing does not yield higher rpm, but rather just higher amp draw.

What if any is the advantage to high timing?

Certain motors with certain magnet counts need high timing to operate correctly.

My GeeBee has been 4s only from day one with a 60a esc and low timing.

I got a bit of a performance boost on one of my planes by going from low to high timing. ESC is a 30a skywalker, pushing a 3536-750 kv motor with a 10.5x8 prop.

Tengarang, great video man. This group you fly with has inspired our little crue to follow suit. I'm the only gee bee, but we'll fly the geebee with a 51, a 47, and a hell cat all at once trying to stay really close and just believing that our altitude is different enough to prevent any collisions. So far it's been a barrel of fun and although we've had a few near misses, misses is the key word. Do you guys have any set pattern you use to maintain formation like guy A follows guy B, while he follows guy C, and so forth, or do you all just try to stay close while hoping for the best? I must admit that if you don't use a flight plan, you're doing an awfully good job at it and are quite possibly setting up for a truly noteworthy disaster .

Which one is it?

Howdy Miller,

first off Happy New Year, and thanks for your comment. Sounds like fun what you and your guys are doing, thinking ill share that with my guys as well.

We have no set rules or any sort of guidelines, albeit they are good to keep in mind as a token of suggestion, appreciate that. That said, collisions do tend to happen at a higher frequency with our group so bullseye there

love this bird, Dynam has done a great job on this one.

We are just a bunch of cow boys having fun....
