I wish! The fuse is jacked where the horizontal stab slides in, that whole saddle is gone Broke my 20 second old motrolfly too, never got the chance to experience the power.

I am lucky to fly with RC on a regular basis and I was heartbroke when he told me. It REALLY blows when you loose a plane to an electronic failure! One of the hazards of our hobby. He's sure to bounce back.

Mine was tight at first. Put some masking tape over the front edge of the canopy where the cowl fits over, and put the cowl on a few times and it will loosen up.

I know it doesn't matter at this point but do you think you may have accidentally put the TX in "scan mode" when you set it up? I'm pretty sure if you hold the same button down on the TX that you hold down to start the range check for too long it goes into "scan mode" which may cause problems if you try and fly it.

Hmmm, thats a thought, both lights were red when I plugged in the battery and when I checked right before take off. I did the range check about 30 min before I actually flew. The receiver booted right up after I retreived the carcass. Oh well, what's done is done

Hey Robert,

Not to put salt in the wounds, but I have to ask, were you flying at El Toro, by the "dead spot"?

El Toro yes, but it wasn't anywhere near the "dead zone".

I am about to order the same, after seeing CrashesAlot 57" extra this weekend. Was the icing on the cake. People running Cc75 or Cc100 esc's with this powerplant?

Thank you mike for taking the time to meet me and show me your plane, it's nice to actually see one. I told my friends they will thank me for introducing them to 3dhs!
