Thought about that. But everything is soldered in and secured by manufacturer. Don't get me wrong, not impossible, just allot of work.

Manufacturer actually soldered the ESCs to the motors (no bullets). Who in their right mind does that on a heavy lifter!?!

I just did that today on my 1st ZMR250 quad build. LOL. Not enough room for connectors on these little things. Probably when the motor is being asked to lift it puts different stress on the bearings than you turning it by hand. I would bet it's the motor though.

Many of you have commented on the 3-tier mini stand I put my chargers and power supplies on at events. I finally found a reliable source:

Wal-Mart has them online under the Seville Classics line.

I've used their batteries for years with good results. Any problems have been handled by Jason to my satisfaction.

I have a question concerning servos!

Can you run analog servos and digital servos in the same plane? I am getting conflicting information on this!

Thanks for you help!

I forgot to mention. Make sure the servos are rated for same volts. Don't mix 4.8v analog with 6v digital. That's where people really go wrong.

First trip I'm taking my wife and her car March 7th.

She will get a head start with her job situation.
I'll fly back then next trip is a van full of planes, towing my VRod project.
Last trip on March 23rd is a 26 footer Uhaul towing my van.
It's official.
