The PA is limbo - haven't junked it yet.

Maybe one cold winters weekend I'll have a go a fixing her - but there's a fair bit of damage up front too besides the nuked tail end.

Been scratch-building a new fuze for my Electro Streak that I managed to snap in half a while back. Coming along nicely

bloody hobbyking strikes again. Spent ages getting the boat all put together and wired up both escs and go to plug one of the escs in and BOOM sparks and smoke.

I wired up the other spare esc we have and BOOM sparks and smoke again.

We had two dead escs from the factory. Luckly we had ordered 4 of them and I only need 2.

So It was getting late and I had to leave dads but we should be able to wire up the two working escs we have and get it going soon.

We worked out a better cooling system for it and ordered some stuff and some better props but there coming from the states so I might need to wait another week or two now.

Dude - 2 in a row doesn't sound good.

Have you got a multi-meter?

Just as a check - see that the polarity to the ESC is correct before you plug it in.

Don't matter if 'red' goes to 'red' when you plug the LiPo in. Double check your polarity, or you might score 4 out of 4 (ask me how I know )

thanks boys

its far to quiet in here

i bought a fun cub and float set

will be using turnigy G10, Xp45A ESC, 6 metal gear servos, and 12.4 prop.

Started painting already

floats are flat black and today I coated with a varathane water based clear coat - glossy and it looks awesome.

The plane itself will be sun yellow, but I might add black invasion stripes to the underside perhaps.

Can't wait to get her in the air, but I am taking my time building her
