Well then put the throttle stick to full throttle before you turn on your radio. Then plug in your lipo pack to your plane, now turn on your radio then move the throttle stick to throttle cut off and turn off your radio. When you turn it back on you should have throttle......

gorgeouse rccrazy great job on the repair. Could i pick someones brain a little. On your jets the rudder..and front steerable nose wheel. on mine i plug the servo marked (direction) into the rudder port in reciever and nothing.. on your jets is the direction lead plugged into a servo cable splitter and maybe links with another somehow as im baffled why the link is dead. is front strut steering linked with the rudder? ide expect so ...

Hey did you change all those CLEVISES.....?

And have you had any problems since....even doing STO (Short Take Offs) just exactly like in your crash video? Huh then that was the failure just as we discovered.

Looks awesome and flies great. Time for me to start a Buildin.

Unplug your servos at the Y-connector and check them both if they work then it's your Y-connector or the extension on the Y-connector that goes to your receiver....

Help needed !!

Hi guys,

Help needed please!

I have a receiver ready version, the nosewheel retracts/extends as it should, but the main gear just make a buzzing noise and dont move.

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar problem? Possibly the mains wired incorrectly through the retract/smoke control box? - maybe they got the positive and negative reversed by putting the plugs in the wrong way around (is this possible, or are the plugs only able to be connected one way, like futaba servo lead plugs?)

Anyone know where that box sits inside the model? I dont really fancy carving it up. But then it will cost me a fortune to send it back. Looks like I'm FUBAR

Any help would be appreciated!

Do the flaps and slats help the slow speed handling?

Can you open the gear door by hand WHILE the noise is on and then peek in? Do the motors turn the little threaded metal rod? What if you put a screw driver between the gear door and the fuselage and try to lift the gear at the wheel a bit WHILE the noise is on? Can you lift the gear?

If you can open it at least partially, look for gear obstructions and also OIL the threaded rod. If it is bent, you can bend it back straight again (I did this after my MiG-29 crash).

I think that reversing would be no problem (with respect to the gear not moving). Only gear-in and gear-out would be reversed.

You should be able to get the box free and look at it. The cable lengths are so that it sits essentially next to the canopy on one of the side cavities in the fuselage (next to the front wheel). If you carefully sort the servo wires and pull the wire for the gears, you should be able to pull out the control unit for the gears.

It will probably not help you to have it, because, it the motors turn, they turn. I don't know whether there is a sensitivity adjustment in the control unit under the heat shrink tube.

Not fubared yet. Don't give up so early.

Cheers and good luck,
