"Free crash instruction"

I know I'll get one....... but I keep putting off because of impulsive buying habits with all my hobbies as usual. I hear good things about DX8 and now that I built my portable wireless display, I want telemetry that DX8 already has. My DX7 lacks feature but all you need is sensors for each parameter you desire. Funny, I have a timer in DX7 but never tried using. How can use menu to program each model's time limit? Would I need to choose each model and set or is there a toggle to set on one program? sorry for my grammer or explanation with question. I have a few brand TX and RX's with FM and 2.4 .....the menu or channels depending sometimes need refreshing when not regularly. I mostly use spectrum now but still keep my Futaba 9c FM for heli's. Let me remember now,? I own High tech,JR,Futaba and spectrum and a few TX's that came with heli or RTF kit's. I may need to catch up researching the tech. How do you like Spectrum so far Don? whats your take?

I use a DX6i and the flight timer can be set in the menu. I just go to setup and scroll down to where it says timer. I dont know about the DX7. Probably the same. Hope this helps.

Yeah, I know that it has a timer but setting up each models limit.....will I need to punch up each model and set, or scroll threw a toggle for each model?????...... I'll look into later tonight. The DX7 has 20 presets and if I remember the DX6 had 6 models, right ? Thanks for your help Tom.

Had some flying weather yesterday morning and logged 3 flights.
No issues with any of the planes and got my flying fix.
Today is a little wet and clammy out there, so i will skip the flying.
Have a nice day!

Another written off week - too rainy and windy. Forecast dosen't look good for the weekend, looks like I'll have to do more tinkering in the shop.

Weekend looks good here.....as usual.

I should add, however, that I'm sure it's not long before we a good weather tax on the ballot. Can't have some "exploiting" good weather when others don't have it. It wouldn't be fair.

I'm getting a lot better flying in wind, even gusty crosswinds. That opens up a lot more flying days. I flew on Tuesday, Friday, and this morning. Flying again tomorrow.
