I set the CCbec pro (running off TP 2s 1350 pro lite) to 5.5 volts (5.1V default). I may go up to 6.0, but I'm not sure yet. I doubt I'd be able to tell a difference of the 0.5V.
What time.....Ill bring the video cam

Good news is that the soccer goals are not anchored anymore....they can be moved.

While I'm thinking about it, I had a couple questions:

How many straps for a 6s 5000?

Do you powerpole guys secure the connected powerpoles any other way (ie the retention clips)?

But nothing else to make sure that the battery doesn't disconnect itself in high g-manuevers? I have the single side pins which stops the individual poles from separating, but not the whole assembly.

David,
A drop of CA works I've never had a powerpole come loose (uhhhh....except for the lipo ejection on my Acromaster and Velox ) !

For the maiden I'll probably just use the pins on each side, then wrap a tie lengthwise just for extra security. I'd love to take it down there, but the drive is a chore.

I am switching mine out for the HS985mg's. They should be here monday and the others will go back. I will have to wait to maiden it anyway as the weather is gonna be nasty.

Cory
Let me know ASAP on how the new servos center. I think I am going to not use the 5625MG servos I had either for the Velox. If anyone wants them at a good price PM me.

I may order the 985MGs

I did use the 7985MG in my Slick (and they are great). Having tried the 985MG back-to-back with the 7985MG, I see why Ben suggests the 985MG. Same performance, much better price.
