One of those start to type and then change the way your going to say something deals and you forget you already typed a few words.
Yeah, that's what I thought you meant!

Well, I read this whole thread today. Then went to the LHS and picked up a VisionAire. I'm very impressed with the plane, and it hasn't even left the ground yet. Hopefully I'll get a maiden in tomorrow!

+1 - got through the thread & videos last night, picked up the plane and put it together today. Now looking for DX7s downloadable profile.

Any pointers to Spektrum VisionAire model profile file for the DX7s?

Cheers

How do you know that vortex generators actually work when scaled down from larger aircraft? Seriously, how can you tell? Did you fly this exact same aircraft without vortex generators? The flying characteristics are very similar to the Multiplex Acromaster that was very popular a few years ago. It didn't have VG,s but handled very well. I'd venture a guess that the AS3X is doing most of the work.

The downloadable one for the DX8 only sets two things. You should be able to do this easily yourself. Right in the manual. Some of the throws to 125% and set the DR/Expo according to the two in the chart. Not complicated at all if you can't find the download.

But if I'm not mistaken, the download is here:
http://parkzone.com/Products/Default...ProdId=PKZ6580

just click on support and there's a profile for DX7
