Hey guys i just purchased a micro stryker. I have gone through the set up but cant get 10mm of aileron. It maxes out at 7mm. I cant turn up the travel to 125% on my dx6i but the left aileron will not increase. I checked both directions of travel but seems that the left servo will not increase the throw.

There is a bug in the DX6i elevon programming.
This is the best fix I've seen so far:

Thanks I will try that. One other question.....i have the stock charger and left a lipo on it all night and it still doesnt show full charge. I am aware of the adapter and will probably purchase one asap but because of the holidays it is tough to get one today. How long should it take on the stock charger using a power supply form another micro eflite charger

I'm not sure of the exact time but it should be less than 1 hour.

What adapter are you using? I only ask as a point to note is that the 2S chargers need a 12V supply where the 1S UMs come with a Celectra charger which uses a 6V power supply. If you were to use one of these then that could be it. It may never charge!

Hmm grabbed one of these in the swarm of good Black Friday prices, will have to research over the next few weeks how to set it up and dial it in on my DX7s and check proper launch technique. Should be a decent flyer over a snow covered softball field type flying location.

The charger needs 12 volts, I reused an old 12v 1000mah Wi-Fi ac adaptor I had kicking around and it charges great.

Got my maiden in with the UM Stryker today. Twas a little gusty but still good fun and a fast mover when you fly it in close. Looking forward to exploring the flight envelope!

You guys think that would be a decent upgrade or would it fry the brick? Is the OrangeRX brick any higher amperage?

No must do mods...

...but....

... Good strong batteries are a must, especially if you swap to the better 4040 prop
