If and when I find it. I now have to take it home and repair the resulting damage.
Moral... Just fly it normally and don't bother how much AMPS it is drawing if flying into wind.
Hahahaha... good point. Back to basics!

The stock prop also seems to be of better quality than what was included with previous iterations of the SS. The stock spar also appears thicker than what I've seen in pictures here. I can post some shots of my kit while it's still in pieces if anyone is interested.
Would you please post pictures of the transmitter, too (all sides). TIA
We are still trying to find out the difference between V2 and V3 (if any) as advertised by the no support BH.

On a serious note, I think Congratulations are in order for AJ the man that set up this thread and through his diligent efforts created one of the best threads on RCG. Well done AJ, over 10000 posts and going strong.
Thanks for the props. I attribute much of the success of the posters like you and so many others. Thanks to all for your support and endless information.
AJ
P.S. HERE is the picture you requested from me on gyros. Prof100 mounted them exactly the same way I did. I hope this meets your request.

Hi all, I've seen that some of you have been using gyros, any joy?
I was looking @ getting one but have no idea which one? Does it have to be an aircraft specific gyro such as the HK Turnigy one?

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=6755

Or
can it be a cheap heli head lock gyro?

Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance,
Happy flying,
Al

Hi all! Sorry more questions...
I am looking for a replacement prop adapter/spinner for the Bixler (SS V1). I need one that will fit the TGS Sport 6x4E Precision propeller. Any ideas please? Happy flying, Al

Sorry AJ, no transmitter. I bought the ARF and purchased a dx6i. Despite being told I would only be getting a v2 (with black canopy, which doesn't make sense), I received what appears to be a v3. Let me take some pics for you guys.

Great. That would help. Right now, there are so many changes and variations that it is getting hard to predict what a person would get. Right now, pictures would definitely help. TIA.

I purchased my SS from BH last July. The paperwork states it is a V3. I have attached a picture of the transmitter to this replay.

That sux! Let me know if true or you're just kidding, & I'll at least say something to 'em about it.

While we're on the subject of customer treatment, lemme tell y'all about Banana Hobby's latest shenanigans. I engaged their Online Chat to ask about getting that clear canopy, only, rather than the complete canopy assy I wanted....and I asked what I had to order to get the whole thing since nothing else showed on the spare parts listing - just 'Canopy'. They answered promptly at first ring, took my question, said (in effect) "Let me check", kept coming back saying "I apologise for delay, am waiting a reply from another department", me replying "OK, thanks" and after about 20-25 minutes of those exchanges, suddenly disconnected without ever answering. 2 immediate attempts to get 'em back, followed by another ~1 hour later, and another the next morning....and they just won't "answer the phone". The subsequent contact attempts aren't running like the first....different screen results, etc. It's like at seeing my name or the order # from the log-in process, you're automatically cut off.

So, it appears their legacy of "Send us your money, then forget you!" is still alive and well, and hasn't improved at all since the early days. Well.....can't say I wasn't warned.

Anybody need a clear V2 canopy?
Take it easy SH, I'm kidding man. It appears that HK offer buddy codes on small items but not on the good stuff, I really dont know what thier criterea are for deciding what qualifies and what does not, if anyone knows what is going on with these buddy codes please enlighten us.

With regards to BH I cannot undestand how they are still in business with such shocking after sales and back up support, it will eventually catch up with them though.

Yes AJ, the pictures provided by Bill are very informative (thanks for posting Prof), for me anyway.

I just purchased this one http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ESky-0008...item1e644703c0

to play around with and get a feel of what they can do.
