Reflex

Can anyone speak more on aileron "reflex" and how it is used on planes other than sailplanes?

Well, I don't think its used much on planes other on sailplanes. I have tried it on my 3D planes to try to take some wing rock out of harriers but other than that I don't know why you would want it.
BTW reflex is when you program your ailerons to both point up a small degree. Its the reverse of flaperons where both ailerons point down a small degree.
Anyone else have more insight?

That 4D is a little too unrealistic for me

it can be used to trim out a plane when the wing incidence is NQR.
Here is an article on Reflex.

AC=Alternate...not quite true

Fast charger = Usually charges batteries in increments of 15 minutes.

Balancer = Balances each cell in LiPo (Lithium Polymer) batteries to an equal number of volts.

Deans = A type of connector that is commonly used on batteries and ESC's.

Bananna plug = Another type of connector that is commonly used on DC chargers.
AC= alternating current. With DC current, electrons move from negative to positive in a straight line...hence the name direct current. Now with AC current, electrons move from 0 charge to + charge back to 0 charge then from 0 charge to -(negative) charge and back to 0 charge to complete one cycle. then the cycle starts over. example. your wall receptical has 120 volts ac coming to it. if you map the sign wave of the current it will go from 0 volts to 120volts positive charge back to 0 volts then to 120 volts negitive charge back to 0 volts. 0 volts being nutral
In the US it does this 60 times a second in Europe 50 times a second or 60Hz/50 Hz.

Here ya go. One note regarding this drawing, it demonstrates the use of bullet connectors and that the 'male' connector is attached to the + battery terminal. I recommend reversing that setup by putting the female connector on the + connection, which allows it to be completely covered with shrink-wrap insulation. Protecting the + wire prevents accidental shorting contact with another object.

How about the differences between plane types IE;
Parkflyer
Foamy
EP
3D
Micro
Small
40 size 50 size

I no, a few have been mentioned, but a complete list would be nice.

I no, a few have been mentioned, but a complete list would be nice.

1. For Parkflyer read pfd. But generally a small(under 2lbs) electric airplane.
2. EP=Electric powered
3. An airplane made out of foam, either Depron(a light brittle foam) or EPP(a light spongy foam).
4. An airplane that is capable of flying 3D manuveres. 3D is defined as flying post stall, or flying using the prop as the main lifting force and not the wings.
5. Micro is smaller than small
6. Small is larger than micro
7. When you see a plane refered to 40 or 50 size (or any other number, .15, 20, etc.) it is referencing that planes nitro size motor. The manufacturer is giving modelers a reference point of how big the model is compared to a nitro powered plane.

Hope this helps a little

Also...

ARF = Almost Ready to Fly
RR = Receiver Ready
EDF = Electric Ducted Fan
DLG = Discus Launch Glider
AUW = All Up Weight = weight a plane will fly at.

There are about a hundred more but I need some coffee first
