HackerMaster programming info - originally posted by

I flew it a few weekends ago - flew very well. I replaced all 3 servos about 2.5 months ago - 2 were getting a little twitchy due to a few beginner's crashes. I wrapped the ESC in foil to shield against RF - works well - haven't had a glitch since I did that.

I recently replaced the tail blades but still have the old ones as a backup. The installed tail boom has some marks from some boom strikes (after I stopped using the balsa protector) but they're just superficial - it's still straight. The vertical tail fin has been broken and re-glued (about 20 flights ago). Also, the canopy isn't too pretty. It was pretty banged up when I got it, but I just put some packing tape on it and it's holding together very well. It works very well for training purposes!

The batteries have an unknown number of cycles. As I mentioned in the post, 3 take less than a 2400 mAh charge, one takes right around 2400. The shrink wrap is broken on a couple of the packs in a place or two but if you don't want to re-shrink them, you can put some electrical tape over the splits.

I tore it down and rebuilt it about 2 months ago.You'll notice in the picture that I put the left/right cyclic servo on the 'wrong' side of the crutch - this allows for a straight linkage and better response (now that the battery is underslung).

I learned to fly with this bird, crashed about 10 times, only needed to purchase a hollow tail shaft. It's a tough bird and I'll be sad to see it go. But, in all reality, I won't be able fly it much, so it must go.

****SOLD****
Asking $550 + shipping.
