Yep, that's the one. Decided not to do it. Have too much stuff!!!
Too much stuff? Gotta get a bigger house...so I can fit more stuff in it!
Reminds me of the George Carlin joke

Same problem here but if it had a flexible skirt for water and rough ground I might have been tempted.

Remember the old show "There's always room for one more"

I am starting to hate the esky 2.4ghz rx's. hahaha. Tip for you all out there. Hot glue that antenna wire in place to protect it. If you wiggle it in stock form, it will fall off. It is the first thing I normally do. But, I forgot to do it on this one I am working on. Not, too difficult to solder back on. If, you know where it goes, and have the right tools. Dang what fun. hahaha. Lee

That one has been around for years, I started with that one just over 5 years ago. The blades are very delicate and break easy.

Does the Champ handle wind better than a coaxial?
That video was fun to watch. I am now more anxious to fly.

Hi Guy's
When you were watching video's i was doing some surgeon.
Man, wat a hellhole.
Only one smal cable,
Workspace about 10 by 5 cm.........
And that with my big fingers.....



That's seems like a puzzle, but worse is yet to come....



I like cheap



The hellhole









Finaly i got the cable in the collar.
It's the smal white one, that's comes out from below.



And here the entrypoint..........
You see the white cable on top.



I just hope it wil work, but can not test it until tomorrow.............

It's a bowden cable, it connects the reardiveplane with the on the conningtower.
