Anyone have any (Good) used CF LG for the 57 SC?

I caught a hole yesterday at D'Town, Bonedoc'd it and twisted out my right leg at the pant. Split the layers.

PM if you do, I need it by this Friday, got another big Fly event in WV.

Otherwise I am ordering new LG today...

Since I am on the topic of the 89"Slick, I am using HV servos and a da 60. I was looking at gas setups over the weekend but it's overwhelming to me. Other than using the Smart Fly what other power distribution systems can I use? I think I rember Arron and Joe were using one that was much smaller and was mounted on the side of the body.

You dont need one, depending on the RX you are running just plug your lipo straight into the rx. If you want to run multiple batteries, you can get a fromco wolverine switch and add some redundancy but its not really necessary. I dont even run power distribution systems on my 40% airplanes. I belive in keeping it simple as possible. I run multiple A123's in the big planes and never see enough voltage sag to convince me to add a smartfly. If I flew a 40% IMAC bird I might because I would probably add a few more servos but I currently run 9 big servos on my 40%er

Thanks the Wolverne switch you spoke about is what I think they were using. I'll look it up just to be sure.

I cannot wait on foamfoot. There are a few others I'd like to have but that one is a must have. I'm clicking buy the first day it's open for pre order. No waiting around on reviews etc etc I gotta have it.

based on a new plane that skywing is developing, I'm betting on a new 3DHS full fuse epp slick in not so distant future, these look to be really cool, construction looks nice and roomy

No he doesn't expect me to pay him anything. All that was damaged was the gear plate and he said he had already fixed it one time before.
1) If I offer my transmitter to someone else, I assume all responsibility since I'm initiating it. Even if they do something stupid, it was my suggestion.
2) If the other person specifically asks to fly it, there has to be some agreement ahead of time on responsibility. Either I know the person and trust them (meaning I am responsible) or I specifically give the "ok, but if you break it you bought it" line and they agree to take responsibility.

Very rarely does #2 come into play, since I normally fly with people I trust and just offer them the transmitter.

My 87 SHP setup (DA-60 also):
- Fromeco Wolverine switch, 3 leads into receiver
- Two 2s1550mAh LiPos (straight 2s voltage to receiver & servos)
- Smartfly optical ignition kill
- 4cell 2000mAh NiMh for ignition, no switch (unplug at end of the day)

You don't need a power distribution setup for a 50/60cc airplane.

Its always hard when you break someone elses stuff. I feel responsible even if it wasn't my fault. I normally don't fly OPP for that reason, except for bivens

your situation sounds easy though. He had the tx and landed it and broke it after the motor quit.

Offer to fix it or parts to fix it. use a buddy box next time. Owner has all responsibility with a buddy box

I am very happy with my Wolverine switch. Not to expensive and provides nice protection. I am using 2ea A123 batteries on my 87" SHP and have 3 JR power feeds to my receiver. Nice simple charge plugs as well.
