Cessna Battery hatch..

This is my 2nd Cessna The first one flew for 4 minutes and lost radio contact and went straight down but She flew very well, so I purchased another. Im taking my time to get it done slowly but surely

It's a great planes brushless motor mount. I cut it down so I could fit it inside the cowl.
Here it is..http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXLCL5&P=ML

I did it. She flew great. Plenty of power flew less than half the throttle most of the time.

Thanks for that.. I've got some S3152 servos so I'll go with these.

This is my first fixed wing with Flaps, I take it it's an AUX Chan used for these on the RX??.. Any setup tips I may need for these??

Many thanks,

Martin,

He probably got it at Nitroplanes (I think most people here did), but they don't seem to be available any longer.

If you're in the Phoenix, AZ area I have one that I may be persuaded to part with. It has the Robart nose strut too. Has had very minimal assembly. Shipping it is out of the question unless you want to pay UPS store to pack and ship. (wouldn't be cheap)
