What radio system are you using? The end points lugz mentioned is travel adjustment on the dx6i. Pretty sure it is on the 8 too, waiting for the my 8 to get back from Horizon.

Ive got to the point now, where removing the motor for repairs has meant that when i try to screw my screws into the foam on the other side of the motor mount, i dont get any purchase. That is the holes around where the screws would sit are fresh air. Im using servos screws to attach the motor.
Is there any solution to this? Any way i can fill that gap?
Its not like there is a hole in the foam with crash damage etc, its just that the screws wont hold (any of them).
Cheers,

maidened a fresh CYL airframe the other day, that i put the carbon fiber uprades on... apparently didnt put enough welders on the motor mount and a slight bump on the prop took the motor mount/screws/motor/prop right off the plane.

holes where the screws where like you are saying.

i just filled em with welders. let it dry. it shrinks a bit after its cured so i added a bit more after it shrunk a few times. built it up and filled the small spots the foam was mising at nicely. glued the motor mount back on really well this time. all the screws grabbed the welders really well also. put a tiny bit of welders on screws before i screwed em in as well.

Thick CA works in the same way. Used it when holes were worn on my nitro cars.

good to know.

i was worried it would get too hard and be to difficult (or impossible) to get the screws through the stuff....

So do you drill it out with a pilot after its glued up?

Ive tried the welders trick but i find it just gets gooey and harder to remove the screws.

I seem to be doing a lot of motor maintenance since i started using 3S, so i need to be able to remove the screws at will.

I only have thin cyano. OK?

The first time you use your new esc have the throttle stick at full. Plug in the battery and wait or the tones and then move the stick to the bottom. Unplug the battery, turn off the Tx. At least thats how I do it. Now just turn on the Tx and plug in the battery as you normally do.

Hey guys here is a short flight video of the removable wing version of the Telink Extra 330. I'm also uploading a video showing how the wing assembly works.

Thin ca might work, I used thick since it takes longer to dry hence time to fill the holes. Here's how I did it back then, apply the ca to screw (or parts your trying to fill holes) and screw it in once it's dry a bit loosen the screw to break the ca loose from the screw.

Nice hone1er looks like the removeable wing works good.

your radio is set to or has a high and low end point,commonly set to 100%,the esc is factory set for a high and low but doesn't see your radios high or low.so what should be done is once you determine that you have your throttle set for correct movement,such as low stick down,you unplug your battery and with the radio still on move your throttle stick to high,plug in your battery on your esc and wait for the double beep ,once heard move your throttle stick to low and it will beep again ,and now your esc will see your radios true high and low
ESC Prg (1 min 55 sec)

A couple things. I never set end points when I first got my twisted esc. The video says I would have no response until I completed the setup. Not knowing any better when I first got my power combo I just plugged and played. Worked fine.

My twisted esc died so now I'm using a HK esc. Is the method to set the end points the same or need I check the manual for the HK esc?

So it goes back to my initial question, having never set end points on my current esc and I didn't have any problems until now, why now am I experiencing this stuttering? Are you still suggesting try setting end points?
