they always say you have to walk before you can fly

seems as the pilot is in the learning stages of flight .but that thing has to be heavy with all the moving gismoes that make it able to walk .

Sax, a PM? We all want to learn. No secrets here

Mike.
Found the vendor. I bought the motor from Miracle-Mart back in May and it was delivered in early June. I wrote them, but being the weekend, I don't expect a reply for a few days. I switched the wires at the motor. The red was in front and the black in back. Shouldn't switching the wires reverse the polarity?

Miracle Mart is the representative for Xtreme and they will take care of your problem.

Mike: Now it's all out. My secret.

I have had 4 days off work and have yet to have a single 10 minute window of opportunity without crazy wind to fly the 120. Tomorrow it is back to long days with no time to fly. Oh well, all of my indoor models got a good flogging.

Question:

Now that I have another 120sr.. I was thinking of upgrading, for starters, to the extreme motor. Any inputs on this motor?
