My timer is set to 3:00 mins, and I am putting 175-180 mah's back into it with varying throttle management. I am loving this little baby more and more as I put more stick time on it. Thanks goes out once again to D Johnson and the entire Hobbico team for providing me their great customer service the last few wks.
Great video Matt, Were you praying before the flight Loved the handlaunch and the nice straight passes.

Awesome, thank you for posting that mah info...!
based on the flight time in this video and 180mah put back into the pack, yours is pulling 4.47 Amps average through that flight

Yeah! some guys have scored them at the lower price, but hey, I posted the links if someone wanted to get this bad boy without waiting until the end of March. Supply and demand at this point !! Still can't figure out the pricing differences that some of you have experienced! This thing is a steal at $107.00!!!!

I'm lucky I got my anylink for free; I has to say something since it didn't come with the plane; luckily they got a bunch in and gave me one for free.

I just finished wiring up a adapter to move the exposed pin off the ESC to be (+), and not (-) like stock. This way I can use my existing lipos which have (-) pin exposed. The adapter I made adds a little nose weight, and thus I can also use my Nano Tech 180's 25C with UMX connectors (have adaper for that) and not have to worry about adding a dime to counter for more nose weight.

I've already marked and tested CG at 70mm, and it balances; but first flight will be the real deal..

Also, I had to change connector on stock lipo, to have (-) pin exposed for it to work under new conditions.

Charging lipo now and will bind to any link with DX6i.

I also want to add for anyone that is confused with the pricing issues that the Anylink is free with the purshase of the F86 until April. So just because a place online does not list it with the price, it will come bundled with the Anylink.

I linked the second post because I think it was well done, only thing missing is a battery meter which you could make or buy, I found several meter designs on the web and in the DIY electronics section from a single chip and a few discreet components and pile of LEDs.

before buying I never realized how much under camber this wing has; imagine how much faster it would be if it was symmetrical or semi-symmetrical?

Yep!!!...That's why I'm building a symetrical wing for mine---Here is a link to the thread... http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1602799 Well---Actually I'm build a new wing due to dorking the stock wing......

I'm going to get back on the GP F-86 wing build tonight as well as change out an aileron servo on my ArtTech Saber to get it ready for flight #2!!!
