Guys, I'm going to close this thread as it started to affect the database server performance due to its length. Please open a new part and I'll post a link to it here. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I crashed (sort of) and my plane was in the paint shop! After covering it with FG and WBPU/baby powder it was all ready for paint. Before I pulled a single squeeze on the airbrush my dog ran into the garage and I ran to catch her, while my back was turned for two seconds the plane fell off the box I temporarily had it on. The only damage was crushed the top of the trailing edge of the vertical stab. So back to the body shop for another day or so!

I'm hoping this is getting my bad luck out of the way now!

I finally got my servo issues figured out. it is something in my Dx6i Transmitter. I tried messing around with the 2 mixes along with the elevon mixing being turned on, and after just changing settings, all of a sudden they started traveling farther! I was only getting about 1/4 inch of up and down and now I am getting 3/4 inch! That should make a big difference. I am excited to try and fly it again now! thanks for the help on here!

was thinking last night after "re-starting" this thread, that maybe someone with more HP F-16 experience than me, should start/resume the new thread with several posts reserved at the beginning of the thread for actual "upgrades".....

the problem with the HP F-16 thread was that it got so huge, that someone who wanted to build / fly their first EDF couldnt really find the nuggets of good mods & info, in amoungst all of the other advice, experiences, flight photos, etc.

if someone else takes this on, then I would close this small "sprout" of a thread,
and just continue to follow along for the ride

thanks

Maybe separate threads for stockers and for mods would be the thing to do.

If you don't want it, I'll take it. I liked the old thread the way it was. Even new people got pretty sound advice on there.

I'm fine with the way it was too. Got the new 5400 from Don today. mounted it up and tested it in the basement. Can't wait to take it out again. Shipping was awesome fast too, Thanks Don.

I can definitely attest to that. It was just a suggestion.
