Rodger, Sr. and I discussed this morning, Monday, about doing a 'Fly-in" some Sunday morning at Bl;ythe and not at South Charlotte Middle?

Anyone up for the drive ???

Jack I found out what was wrong with my radio, I went through a troubleshoot search and found out that somehow my radio was swtiched to mode 1 ( instead of the regular mode 2).

I reset it and it works fine. Thanks a lot to everybody for all your support during my hours of frustration.

Today I flew my SS with one of my CD motors:

1300 mah 3 cell
10x5 E APC prop

It will take off in less than 10 ft. and will cruise with less than half throttle. I need to test amps and thrust with an 1147 apc prop see how it does.

Once again, thanks for all your help and support. See you soon.

I'd be more than glad Rudy, all I need to know is what kind of performace you want out of your motors and some specs like prop you wanna use, battery pack ( maximum discharge) and if you have an amp draw limitation. Send me a PM

See you very soon.

Pepe,

The transmitter is still yours if you want it, I think Ron ordered you a crystal on the freq. Just add batteries and fly.

Do all agree to go to Blythe this Sunday, 3/12??? With that much time away from Betsy, who is in still bunches of pain from her back surgery, I may not be able to do it this time.
