When you click on " post reply" , scroll down to attach files - manage attachments . If the photos are on your computer , click "browse" . When you see the photo you want double click on it . Then back on the "manage attachments" window you should see the file listed next to "browse" , and on the right it will say "download" - click on "download" . Repeat for more photos . When you've downloaded all the photos you want to the "manage attachments" window , click on "save changes" at the bottom of the "manage attachments" window , then close that window .
For videos , download the video to YouTube , copy the link to the video and paste it into the post reply window .

Weight? has to be...

I tested those $5.99 Orange RX receivers today. They work great. Even let the thermals take my snowball way up and still had control. Would I trust them on something expensive? Nope. But for foamies they are great. No complaints.

You're probably right , more foam ( more weight ) adding a KFm top and bottom . So for me gaining the benefits of a KFm airfoil at the cost of more weight isn't worth it for a jet that I want to fly FAST !
I might have to get some of those orange rx's on my next order - price is right !

Up in flames , huh ? I'll bet it was a good show ! I've had a couple of ESC's get toasted in flight - no batteries yet .
Praymond had great success building his out of blue core , didn't even have to use reinforcement with the grain going across the wing . The blue core is light enough for him to do vertical take-offs !

That's frustrating ! Do you have any airframes built ?
