71" Cowling????

Anybody have a new or good orange 71" electric cowl they would be willing to part with? Mine has a problem and there are none available at either 3DHS or ADC. Paypal at the ready.

Don't think he crashed it, he may have damaged it or it just has a defect, or nose over and scratched it.

Strange, I have the same setup on my EPP and have never had trouble. I know Chad got a new radio recently but I don't know how long he's had the foamy. If this is a new problem it is most likely with the ESC brake or some other setting or the motor has a mechanical issue.

Just troubleshooting from the hip.

Still building the plane....dropped the cowl, then kicked across my shop as I reached for it (what can I say, I'm not as coordinated as I used to be). I can repair it if needed, but it is a brand new plane and I just don't want to stick a repaired cowl on it....

Yeah I know what you mean once the plane has one tiny scratch on it you end up flying it lower.

Last question for the night..... Then I'll stop bothering you all with my 33" EPP nonsense, and back to the normal scheduled programming...

Does Hitec repair servos that are just showing a lot of blowback?
