One question please. If I use Genius' main motor with Mini's main gear what will be the results? There will be any temperature issues? Should I try it?

Thanks!

This is very strange and i even tried using a completely new model slot on my 7e with the same issue.
Do both AIL Servos move (one tilts UP and the other tilts DOWN) when the Swash drifts toward the right AIL direction?

Yup, but seems i got rid of it by downgrading from 1.3 to 1.1 and resetting all models on my devo 7e.

Where did you get 1.3 from all I see is 1.1 for the MCP & none for the 7e.

Oh, so it seems they removed it.

I spotted it on the 31'th http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...6#post23669467

Tom also mentions it in his thread. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=544

still have the file for it if anyone wants to test it.

does anyone have a copy of the current mini cp 1.1 bin file. I downloaded the current one from the website after fixing the address it sends you to LOL. When I attempt to extract it, it gives me an error. i am able to extract other files downloaded from their website. Please let me know.

Works just fine with winrar and 7zip? Even windows builtin zip manager can extract it.

That was my own stupid mistake. I got it, the file posted is good, but walkeras site has a corrupted .bin file I'm going to update to that version in just a bit. Is there a reason not to do the update?

That works perfect, 4:30min on a HP05S with 5400 RPM and 260mAh consumption out of the HK 300mAh 45c battery

WOW! 4.30min with 260mah battery?
Ι have to bridge that resistor with a little wire?
Can you tell me more datails is IT difficult to bridge it?

He clearly stated he uses a HK 300 mah battery.

The LVC is there for a reason, one should only consider disabling it if one has a very power hungry brushless setup, resulting in major voltage drops.

On a stock mini it kicks in once a pack has been drained to 3,75-3.8v. One should not drain battery's more under load as this reduces their lifetime.

I did it but i dont know if i did it write , i solder it with a solder ball ,i think
know voltage on telemetry is 88,7volt
mini starts when i plug battery, itss very small this resistor , i dont know what i did i hope with a lot of luck that i solder it good

300 mah with hp05s and 4.30min = perfect!
i have hp05 and lvc cut me at 3.80 .385.or 3.90 it depends of battery , i dont like to cut me at this voltage!
