My understanding of the diode approach is that it achieves the same thing as a regulator at a lower cost.

Diode will sort if work but the output of the diode will decrease with the battery decreasing ,it won't hold a voltage throughout the pack cycle.

True had this happen and thought it was a tuning issue...put the ignition pack back in and all is well...

Thanks but probably not worth the effort to try and peel of the covering without damaging it. I just replaced the mb on my sr and I couldn't get the covering to peel back without it tearing somewhere. I'm gonna make it my knife edge contest plane for the east FLI. So cosmetics don't matter it's probably not gonna make it threw the day. Lol

I'm seeing the 48 EPP extra in stock at both ADC and 3DHS... I want one too! gotta wait until the 48 edge dies first though. i even ordered a MB kit when i got it and haven't had to use it yet so it may be a while... that plane keeps coming back for more
