yes the timing have options: low, standard and high, OK , but I was talking about PWM frequency, there are no "low" option,,there is : outrunnermode, 12, 16 and 24Khz

I will try 12Khz first.. maybee thats what you meant by "Low" ?

Havent done it yet

Am waiting for the mega to arrive so I can see hows its all gonna balance first. X-plane is gonna be fast enough without excess "speed" holes

Just gonna drill a hole big enough for the base with the little plastic bush on the boda to stick through, I dont think orientation of it matters that much with it ( I range tested the hell out of the all carbon typhoon, in the worst possible conditions ( Tx pointed at ground, BODA totally sheilded by the plane) at a soccer feilds length away I couldnt get it drop out )

May make up a stratair style sharkfin, just cos it looks cool

Optima 7, but the 6 is just as capable performance wise.

Start - use ramp if you want to. I don't
Do use a brake ramp, and while I was using ramp for some time now, today I found a good reason not to. Ater any hard landing, you should make sure everything is still in tip top shape. I do this by testing all control surfaces prior to following launch, and blipping the motor. Today, everything passes. I launched the plane and 25 feet up, it did a perfect hammerhead and was pointed straight at the ground. I recovered (honestly this was my best piloting to date, and hopefully forever after), but I did not have speed and had to go down the runway before turning around to land. It tip stalled something nasty at the other end of the runway due to low speed and tailwind. Still managed a perfect landing though. I thought maybe the radio cut out or an aileron servo died on me, but no, it was the motor mount that broke free. Lucky for me, no twisted wires/esc fire, but the moral here is that blipping the motor on the ground was not a strenuous enough test with ramp. In fact, I'm almost certain that the firewall broke free once it approached full power. So if I ramp, from here on out, I will let the motor fully unload during flight check, or I'll simply take ramp off. For what it's worth, this was a leaner 5300kv on 5.2 running 3s... The pack is the most amazing lipo I have ever dealt with: gen's ace 55c.... Guaranteed to mess up all your old setups with it's ridiculous lack of voltage sag.

Thanks for reading!

Haha, I know the feeling la528it. Screw those guys who can do 200mph passes inverted off 2" off the strip. Its landing a plane that has returned to kit form in the air that makes ya worthy!

This is the boda install on the hyperDX, carbon fuse, simple as. Typhoon setup was identical, with the boda facing upwards/right though. Using a fillet of UHU por (similar to goop but thinner) to secure the boda in the hole. UHU por is also the shizzle for attaching servo covers BTW, its nice and clean, sticks really well, but can be removed without busting the wing.

No, for servo covers there is only one option: 3M Scotch ATG Adhesive 924 Transfer Tape

It is thinned goop in a micron thin double-sided tape. Leaves no residue, and keeps covers tacked on firmly in excess of 200mph

BTWE: last I checked stratair was selling those fins at half price... may be easier to buy a few from them rather than making you own

Gens ace 3s 55c insanely cheap, and it never gets hot. These things are amazing, it's worth it even if it lasts only 10 flights, but as cold as it lands, I suspect there are many more to come
