People that just get into 3DHS don't but those of us from the old days are just amazed even with how great it is now. I was really reeled at the 87" extras with the steel turnbuckles now and the just upgraded hardware in general.

LG and tail wheel bolts already in the airframe. Pockets in the wingbags for the SFGs. Reinforcement on the wingbags in the velcro strip area where they used to tear.

3DHS just keeps incrementally improving the quality with every kit. Don't think we don't notice.
And...I ordered some parts for my 89" Slick over the weekend...and they shipped on Monday...my gosh, you can't ask any better than that!!

I haven't checked mine on the ground but I've found the ICE logging to be useless. It's never even close to my watts up. I turned it off on all of my ice.

I haven't put mine on a real watt meter, I tried but had the series adapter wiring wrong and melted my watt meter. oops.
I don't have data logging on my ESC, it's an older HV110.

Ok so here are the bubble letters. Spelling aside....they are 2 parts and are supposed to look like this. I've only used the white background with the black letters. Might find a home for the black background and white letters. maybe on some red somewhere.

They do look better once you get them on compared to the old ones. Last weekend I put some of the 72 decals on and I might have to take them off. They look really bad compared to these.

Send Ken an email...he is usually very quick to respond....

As to why it's happening....why did my $319.99 160 amp ESC blow at much less amperage...it's man made and an electrical/electronic device...anything can happen.... As "Murphy" said..."Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, and at the most inopportune time".....

When did you buy it? There was a batch of motors where the glue didn't bond, but it was sometime last summer. Ken took care of me really well and very fast. He even paid for shipping back to Canada out of his own pocket...something that only one other company has ever done for me.

Yes he took care of me. I was away from the desk cpu and my cell wouldnt let me reply on RC Groups to tell you that..

Ken said that was the first 5320 where the magnets are coming out that bad.. The motor is only a few weeks old maybe 1 month of mostly shelf time..

. It has 6 flights on it!

He is sending a new motor and wants to see the old one to figure out why and maybe prevent from happening again..

Ken is Awesome Guys! Simply awesome!
