Paul & Skyline

I use Castle Creations controllers in almost all my models and set the low voltage cut off at 3v per cell so I don't accidentally fly them lower and damage the cells. Some of my slow flyers and sailplanes will keep flying way below that threshold so I do rely on the LVC to save my lipos in case I get careless and fly them to long. Not sure if this controller has that function so I will time my flights, but it would be nice to know if it has a safe lipo cut off feature, just in case. Tom

SkylineFlyer, your flight video and commentary are what did me in.
Thanks again,
Jay
Thanks Jay for the KIND words! You wont be disappointed in this plane.

How would you guys compare this to the Mulpiplex FunCub? I've got one and absolutely love it, but this looks like a must have as we'll...

I can easily fit 3300 3s packs in my FC, what's the largest that this new beaver will hold?

Seems that it would fit in there but remember that the lighter the plane the better it fly's

Paul, thank goodness you're all the way up in Canada. I'd hate to show up at the lake with my Flyzone Beaver sitting next to yours. Yours keeps getting better every day.

By the way, anyone notice the oar on the inside of the port side float? Nice touch Paul.

I know Google, I just thought that you might have had a bunch of radical pics stored on your pc. I've done the google thing, thats how I got my current paint job. I was just hoping for some instant gratification.


Those first two links are awesome!

Here's pages and pages of large pictures of the DHC-2. If the link below is too long or doesn't work, just go to www.airliners.net and do a search for dhc2 (without the dash).
