I might be way off base....just a shot in the dark but sounds logical & won't hurt to try.
On mine it's in 4th menu, FWIW.
You may have something there....worth a look.

thanks,

Now that sounds interesting.

Jim,

Have you tried setting throttle range?

Go to page four of the Hobbywing manual I attached -- Throttle Range.

Don't give up on the ESC. Any time I get a odd throttle range with a new ESC I perform the throttle range calibration. I run Hobbywing ESCs all the time.

This happens all the time. It is usually caused by the ESC being plugged in backward into the receiver, throttle is reversed, or throttle trim at idle it set too high.

Did you bind the receiver to the TX?

I just pulled mine out of my RTF. I'll sell you both for $20. That's a savings of $6 for both!

Didn't you get an Owner's Manual with your HK6DF? The bind instructions are printed on the back of its 1-sheet.

I posted the bind instructions several days ago for someone who asked, and at his request I made him a copy. Since then, I found the manual is posted under the Files tab on HK's product page for the HK6DF. Here's a link....be sure you follow it to the letter (with one exception), and it should work.
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...5X88665X37.pdf

That exception: on step 4 where it reads "Holding the bind switch in the up position now switch on the transmitter" should read "While PRESSING the bind button, switch on the transmitter".

Those instructions also tell you what indicators signal each step's responses, so you'll know you're proceeding correctly.

One additional thing, in case you don't know where to connect the bind plug -- it goes into the Rx socket with only 2 pins -- which is farthest away (opposite end) from the #1 socket.

Please consider putting all you fine suggestions in your own blog and label it as specifically for the Bix/SkyS. You have so many great ideas that I (for one) would like to see you post them in one place and refer to your blog here. I would not take any offense to you doing that and it would help a LOT of folks that read the thread. Thanks for your consideration and keep up the great work.

Oh Gawrsh!!! I just blushed all over m'self!!
Thanks for your kind words, AJ....but I'm basically just returning the favor and giving back things you great bunch of guys either gave me, or I found somewhere because of your stimulation of my interest. Yes, I'll confess I'm excited by this li'l plane & the portal it's provided into this exciting world, and I guess it shows. I just hope (as I sometimes worry) I'm not having TOO much to say, & that some don't feel like I'm hogging too much page space.
Most of my input is based on spontaniety....someone writes something & it makes me think of a fitting response, and I reply. I'm afraid even with my writing experience, I don't have much of an idea as to how a blog should be organized....no editors around to help with that *LOL*. Let me think about it and, I'll likely PM you for further discussion. That good?

Sure, hot glue (low to medium temp) will work fine. However, it is as heavy as epoxy.
