Anyway.. here's another try at getting a response from you.

I have a problem getting voltage from the RSSI connector. It doesn't appear that the RSSI pin (based on web site pic) has any voltage on it (just mv < 1V or 0). It certainly doesn't change based on TX on or off. I measured RSSI directly with a voltmeter. Everything else about the receiver appears to be working fine. Ideas?

Thanks
Chris

Yes Mike...your box is full

Hey Mike,

I've sent you guys an email, a PM, and I have posted about the DLrx. I sent the money via paypal with an address. This was about a month ago. I have not heard from you or recieved the package. Can you send me an update. Thanks.

I'm not trying to be a pain, but it clearly states on the site and forums that the system ships in 24hrs. Am I missing something?

Is 3 weeks a normal amount of time for the customs delay?

Just like a new TV, if it is going to quit, it will usually fail while it is new, or last for many years. Send me your full name and address, since it is hard to know weather your TX or RX stopped, I will send you another full system right away so that you can continue with your project.

Mike

I was more concerned with whether I'd be able to hook it up to my DX8 - it's hard to find recent information that doesn't involve deconstructing my radio and soldering new components - so thanks for taking the time to put that info down where a search can pick it up.
Just in case you haven't found what you are looking for: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...ostcount=12548

Very simple with a DX8... don't have to open the case at all

No. It's definitely not normal. However, I think it's sometimes hard for Mike to link a post or PM here with the order he receives through paypal, I would include your order number, transaction ID, or any other information you can include which will help him figure out what went wrong with your order.

Ive seen it done, but i thought with much more robust setups. Maybe i can fit my whole antenna tracker under a plastic bubble on the roof of the family conversion van.

Although snowy,windy,wet & muddy dont mesh with flying $1000+ around, i cant imagine holding out all winter !

Maybe one big ski for the front of the skywalker...
Maybe i sacrifice a lesser craft into the elements.

Im sure it will happen some how. Winter here is long and miserable.

Still have no order confirmation though, the anxiety is killing me !
I flew all winter last year with an AXN from HK and it just glide on the snow. Skywalker should do the same, that's what I'm planning to buy later in the winter.

I flew from the car with the DX7 on 2,4 mhz, can't see the DL not working. If I want to go far, I'll just put a longer extension and put the DL Tx on the top of the car with the antenna vertical. As far as the electronics on the plane, I had no problem and I flew at -10C regularly.

Just watch the white landscape, landmarks are harder to find in the winter when everything is white.

No customs delay if you live in the USA, as the DL is shipped from the USA.

Hi Mike.

I purchased Dragon Link + Futaba cable in November, 2nd.

I would like to know the tracking number.

Do you need just the Paypal ID? May I send you a PM or your PM box is still full?

Thank you.

Shipping to most areas of the world takes about 1 week. That being said, customs can do anything they want, and in some cases, they can hold a box for weeks While it is being held, it can not be tracked, and they will not even admit to having it, it is rare, but it happens. This is the second time this has happend to the UK for Dragon Link.

I will tell you a story. I sold a Dragon LInk to a lady in the United Kingdom and sent it right away. After several weeks of waiting, she called customs and they gave her the standard answer of " We do not know anything about this package "... It tracked leaving the USA and then nothing for weeks. After almost a month, she was sure I stole her money and never sent anything, was ready to go to police etc. I told her customs was probably holding it, but that I would send another if it did not show up very soon. She said that she ordered from the USA all the time and NEVER had customs hold anything. Well, there is a first time for everyone, and days later her Dragon Link also showed up, having been held in customs....

So while the vast majority of the time things go as they should, customs does not answer to anyone, and can hold anything any time they want. It is rare, but does happen we you least expect it.

But as I also promised Cir2Kuk, his Dragon Link would arrive, and if not I would send another. Every Person that has ever ordered a Dragon Link has gotten it delivered. No one will ever loose thier money with us.

Mike

Cir2kuk,

I have to ask, did you have a paypal note about the free RX for friend rewards in the order ? If not we can still get the free RX sent to you. What I do ask is that if there was no note in paypal, that you pay the shipping if it does not ship with the origional order. If there was a note there and we missed it, I will pay for shipping and send it.

Mike
