As for roll rate, try this...

First, start out level and slow, add aileron, and then increase the speed to full.

Then flying fast and level, and then add aileron.

If the roll rate is faster when you started out slow, it's your servos, not the prop.

Honestly, Manta, I'm not sure. I think what it does- is note my email address, then send a notification to that email address whenever the Blog is updated. To me, it looks like an email notification in a folder called RSS- and Doc's blog is just a directory. If you want to know how to do it- I could talk you through it, I think. PM me- unless it's beneficial for the group- then I can post it here.

You just need to get your ass in the truck and get down here. Bring Powerline's Edge so we can finish killing it.

Awesome looking planes!
Sucks about Hunter's. I hate it when that happens!
Really liked those graphics, too. Very nice.

They all have expiration dates though. More often than not it's our own fault.
I watched helplessly as a gorgeous Hangar9 Beast w/DA120 spiraled into our treetops yesterday from about 100'.
Outstanding pilot at the sticks, too, and doing a maneuver he's done a bazillion times before.
I think he just encountered an orientation problem against the dark gray sky and just never got it back.
(Been there and done that... but it's usually the sun that gets me out of whack)

So what is the consensus on No Spark Arming systems for Deans Connectors on 6s systems?

Do you guys use them?

Good idea. The spark will eventually mean you'll need to replace any type of connector. I just don't use them yet. I actually bought no-spark 5.5mm bullets, but I then switched to 6.5mm bullets on all the 5S 5000 batteries when I went to 10S setups in the EF 78 with the A60, and the 50cc size Extra 300 with the Q80. I'm still planning on doing something but I'm not sure what option I'll end up with. There are no fewer than three that I know of and two add either weight or just another potential point of failure.

The switch isn't enough to protect the radio? I only ask because i honestly don't know.

The real issue is the connectors themselves. Both the Deans and the bulltets I use spark, and this will eventually wear out the connector. 10S and 12S make a nice crack compared to the 4S setups. These are the ones I bought in 5.5mm and I'm thinking about the 8mm now that I went to higher voltage setups with bigger gauge wire. This is less of a failure point and only means that after you connect the batteries, the one wire to the ESC will need to be connected as well to complete the circuit.

Most of the planes all fly close to the same but push them to the limit and you start to find to the differences but the differences you posted are it. No vanq


Also I finally got out to fly my mxs today, haven't been able to fly in over a month I believe. Nothing beats the real thing, I've tried to do the sim but I just can't get used to it.
