It's a good indicator when something's not right (going off steadily well before the timer says it's time to bring her down). Here's a pic of my setup on a different plane - one alarm for the flight pack (set to 3.5v) and another for the 2S lipo receiver pack running unregulated to my HV servos (set to 3.8v). I know to land when either the timer or one of the alarms goes off). I retired a few flight packs based on those alarms. I use them on all my flights except with the light foamies. They've saved me from a number of LVC incidents on really windy days, when I'm heavy on the throttle.

Well, I'll just say that replacing a 70 hurts a little more than replacing a 48.....

Plus, it's only my second time flying this beast, so I'm still getting used to it. One thing different is that it doesn't have the instant throttle response of an electric motor. You have to be thinking a bit ahead on throttle inputs or it will hurt. It isn't sluggish by any means, but it still has a bit of spool-up time before rocketing off.

You really should give the 3DHS EPP Yak a try. Obscene amounts of fun! Before it sliced me up on Monday, I was tapping the rudder in hovers, then dragging the top of the rudder out into inverted harriers. That little plane is a hoot!

Hey guys, who sells the "bling" sticker sets?

I am looking for my 47" Osiris, but I know I have seen many blinged out 71" Slicks here.



Thanks in advance.

There are lots of good vinyl guys out there. I have Nachos Cheese graphics on my 71. Goes on nice ans looks great. ADC and B&E are also great from what I've seen and heard. I had some Adc vinyl on my shp. Cant go wrong with any of these IMO.

Ken ships so fast!



This 4325-280 is a BEAST! Can't wait to see her fly. Just need the CC ICE 100 and a few little things to finish her up.

More importantly I need to solve my storage problem. I'm thinking about hanging the fuse by the tail wheel. Or I could use one of those big bike hangers like I did for the 59".



Ether way she is going to have to hide in the stairwell. Could be tricky to get setup...
