I concur....
The video must be two planes with two receivers bound to the same Tx.

I have to say that I'm not happy with the slow speed of the MKS DS65K on a 1S lipo. Amplifying info is that the servo arms are super short, so I am using all the available throw. Longer arms wont fit in the fuse. And the elevator horn setup is fixed as well because of the arrangement. Its S-L-O-W!
Its NOT a snipe, fyi.....
I'm going to a KST when I get the chance to change it out. Its about twice as fast visually.
Having a super slow elevator servo isn't my idea of fun.

I wouldn't trust the guy who made that video. He's a crazy fool...flies two DLGs at the same time to better his chances in a competition.

1S, less is more from me...

Got an hour and a half on the new setup at 244g w/o the BTOA and 250.5 with the unit in place. CG is 67 w/o and 64 with the BTOA. In calm conditions my weak throw gets me 160'+-><. In a 5+_mph wind I was getting 170'+->< with a max at 179'. This equals my best throw with the Validol in a 10 to 15mph steady wind. The snipe is 3 to 5 mph slower than the Validol (181g) in almost every aspect and I assume its mostly due to the weight difference. I'm having a hard time figuring out the best flap positions but I've settled on Launch at almost 2mm of reflex and cruise is 1mm of camber and thermal is 3mm of camber. My slider can add 3mm of camber or remove 2mm in cruise and thermal modes. I spent much time flying in cruise with one up to the 4mm in cruise and although it made a big difference I had a hard time telling which had a better L/D in the clam conditions. At times I had all 6mm in thermal mode and was able to circle quite fast. Some times the ship felt like it was mushing but I think it was the 64mm CG with the BTOA inside or I just can't read sink.
