I will... but we aren't that far yet. Stay tuned... should have them in the next week or so.

Here are some pics of my build just to tide you over The electrical setup will be showing up in this same album when it is done.

nice build looks good so far. this will be my first gas plane so im new to using voltage regs and all that stuff thats not on small electric planes but im getting help from an expert with my build just incase so i dont mess up. if using servos that are rated for 7.4v can you use a 7.4v lipo receiver battery without a regulator?

I plan to use an unregulated 2s lipo for rx and servos. I am using HV servos and a hitec Optima 9x rx. I will be using an unregulated 2s LiFe pack on my ignition. The only place I was ever planning to use a voltage regulator was going to be on my throttle servo but I ened up just getting another HV servo for throttle as well.

If you end up going a route where you need to tone down the votage for just one servo or something you can just put a cheap bec in line with the servo from the rx. valuehobby.com has one for $7.99. I will also be getting my packs there. The LiFe pack is pretty cheap too... like $8-$9.

On a DLE engine you will want a 4.8 battery of 5 volt regulator. The higher voltages burn the ignitions up.
Mine has a miss to it till it bleed off a little voltage and I'm running a 2000mah niMH

You just want to make sure your rx can handle the voltage. What system are you using?

You'll need to regulate that LiFe to 5 volts for the Ignition. other than that your good to go.

I run dual unregulated Cheeta 6.6v 1700mah LiFe packs from BPHobbies.com for my receivers/servos.. and a single 1450mah 4.8v NiMh pack for my ignition.

I use Futaba s3051HV metal gear/high voltage servos on all surfaces and a regular JT ST47BB servo for my throttle

I recently picked up a pair of 1100mah 6.6v LiFe Packs from ValueHobby.com for a Goldwing 70" Extra 260.... amazing low price and they are working out great,

I've been using 2-1100mAh LiFe from HK USA for Ignit. and Rx without issue. I use 2 diodes inline on the Ignit. to lower the voltage to under 6v. Running the Rx batteries at full voltage. Amazingly good for less than $5 each. I've just recently saw that VH is now selling them also, so it's good to see another source for inexpensive LiFe batteries. I always used real A123's prior to these, but these seem to be working great so far.....time will tell if they hold up. I only use LiFe to power all of my glow rx's as well as gassers and like to be able to fast charge at the field since I usually take two or three airplanes out to fly. DG
