It should be fine, I've used rubbing alcohol on lots of other foams. You might test a drop on an inconspicuous place just to make sure what you've got won't damage anything.

4th flight in my Zephyr

would have gone further but limited flight restrictions at this location ... this plane and video system really feels ready to do the UAV thing


(yes I know the video is too long)
Ride my FPV Zephyr (7 min 23 sec)

I cannot get my hacker x-70 in to programming mode... i discovered if I set my lowest end point to 80% now i don't have a weird gap to when the motor spins up... I tried setting my full throttle end point to a lot of different things... always putting hte stick to full throttle before powering up the plane.....

99% 100% 80% 101-105% 110% 119-125% and 140% and the thing just won't go into programming mode, several of these end points don't even engage the safety and the motor just starts up at full throttle after the beeps which doesn't seem right at all... at this point should I just invest in the usb programmer??

i'm using a futaba 9C with ezuhf.. has anyone successfully programmed a hacker x-70 or even x-55 with the throttle stick on a futaba?? if so what did you set the end point to??
