Man, I was thinking about those exact same skis but was wondering if they are big enough. It looks like HH has a bigger size also. Let me know if you try them and if they fit well and seem to be the appropriate size.

Hey alex i forgot to mention this earlier,if you have no flight experience you should try a flight sim on the pc.i use realflight its worth the investment saves on crashed planes,but if your not up to spending that much do a search for FMS not as good as realflight but it will give you the idea.

Also i am not a fan of reglueing that motor mount. i guess if you cannot get a new one you have to.that would be major problems if that comes apart in flight LOL.make sure that glue can take the stress or wait for a new one

Plane arrived 20 minutes ago. I may get to take it out tomorrow for a few laps if the wind is down to a managable speed.

Glad to hear it, CapMike! They treated you right, as they should have. I hope your going-forward experience is uneventful and filled with the joys of simply flying.

Ron Unfortunatly was not able to fly today . I spent from 6am until 4pm getting my boat off the beach and running so I can work tomorrow. She still isn't running . Winds were supposed to be sw 10k but started blasting 25 this afternoon. There is always another day for this though

Steady tone from receiver

I just received my new Apprentice and setting up the DX5e. When the power is connected I get a continious tone from the receiver. Is this normal??

maybe its your esc? Your esc could be telling you that your battery is to low. Or that you pluged in your reciever wrong. Or that your transmitter is not bound to the reciever. Or that its broken.

When you turn on your transmitter do surfaces move?

Tone

Sorry, I meant the receiver. Yes all surfaces do move as they should. I have noticed by adjusting the trim on the elevator it can be made to stop the tone. But as you control any of the surfaces it will restart. Not Extremly loud, the motor at an idle and you will not hear it.

Have not flown it as just not too sure on this one.

Thanks

"trim on the elevator it can be made to stop the tone"

You sure the note is note coming from the servo? Are they digital servos in that bird?
