A great place to be!
And post.
Sooo much info!!

That elevator can be straightened a bit.
Take your time and bend the wire rod that connects the ele halves.
Grab the elevator right at the wire U bends and gently twist.
The trick is to make improvements not vice versa.

Great thank you! having the feeling I know you all for ages :0,
Looking forward to share my knowledge
Tomas

Yep, one side of mine the elevator is slightly high on the hinge line. Nothing to concern yourself with "tearing" it off and fixing though. It wont effect the flight.

IMO the box was not properly designed to protect the item in transit. The "open" top Styrofoam inside a thin cardboard box is just asking for troubles. I think had they put a "lid" on the Styrofoam, it would have added much more support and protection.

so if anyone is wondering the stock servo with arm. weigh 4.1grams
I am thinking about installing 2 ds75 e flite servos on my wings so i can fly this thing but not sure. if i had the right ends to plug in I would but one of these ds75 is 8.1grams so its double the weight.

I might just get my dad to order the Power HD DSM-44 and wait for them to get here anyone here ever order from Value hobby before?

Just finished up the mount for my 808 camera. Used a piece of 1/16" aluminum rod CA'd to the receiver cover. Rubber band holds the camera in place and can be pointed forward or rearward. Might be interesting to see how long I can watch the video without throwing up!

Sounds like a bad solder joint on the bullet connector
Easy fix

I would ad some soft foam inbetween the camera and the fuse to take off some shaking

Don't confuse eflite's BL Controller, 10A in the 540qq with the eflite 10-Amp Pro brushless esc.
Same goes for the BL 280 vs the park 280 motors. Both are 1800kv

You hit it. Not sure what went wrong but hit the reset button and its up and running again. Took video with the camera both fore and aft. Got to download it to the computer but I have to get this T-bone steak off the grill and get rid of it first!
