Sounds good. I will be using the AR6300 with my futaba S3114m servos and a hacker A10 9l with an x-5 esc. I ordered a white one and did my own color scheme. I ran into one problem though, and that was wen I attatched the pushrod supports the glue seemed to eat through the foam. I was using the BSI thin CA and accelorator as Mike recomended

It will still do that even though its "foam safe".

Its because there was too much CA/ too much kicker on that location.

I push the pushrod supports in, and put 1, maybe 2 drops on the hole they are in, while they are in, wait a minute or two, and lightly mist it with kicker from about 1 1/2 ft away. Never had a problem.

I'm using a Phoenix 10, but on 2S. It should handle 3S just fine though... just make sure to set your curves to keep the RPM in a normal range and keep from drawing a TON of amps, but it should be pretty forgiving...

Was trying to program my 12FG and I think I let it run with no load too long.... Now when ever it has pwr, it gives a beep ever second no matter what I do. I contacted Castle Creations and they said to send it in because the processor is messed up. He also said that if I didn't need the extra programing features of the Phx 10, I could buy the cheap Thunderbird 9 instead. Are you using any advance programming freatures for the vpp? thx.

Ahh I see. No, I'm not using anything really special, just the normal programming. I'm not familiar with the options the Thunderbird offers though, so I can't say for sure...

I'm pretty sure the TBird only has a 1.5A BEC while the PH10 has a 3A BEC. Wouldn't that be a concern for VPP?
