Does anyone have a broken wing they can pull the landing gear plate off and sellto me? I lost mine in some tall grass. Parkzone only sells the wheel and wire, no plate. Ill take the wheel and wire too, but if you just have the plate then that's great!

In fact i love my epp's just because of helium filled wings. So easy to do 3d. That every flight i make lots of nonsence new tricks And just float around doung harrier.

The CZ YAK is a 3d brick. Im not using her for hard 3d but still a very powerfull and exellent plane just need a more consentration.

Wait, so you never thought of filling your wings and elevator with helium? maybe a 126 slick? the next crowd pleaser is, the "blimp"! Move on over KE spins and blenders!

The FMS model doesn't seem to work. It loads but then freezes. All other models work ok.

Any fixes?

Have any1 try the hobbywing skywalker 40a (linear bec). I need one for my stinson reliant (the thread is dead that is why ask here since is same power plant) is 5 servos so maybe the UBEC version will be better.

Or maybe move my eflite 30a from the "T" to the stinson and use the 40a to get use of my still in the box P10.

Or use the P10 in the Stinson (that could be cool)

I completely trashed my T-28 yesterday, after a loss of signal with a HobbyKing OrangeRC receiver. I had purchased the receiver with a satelite receiver, and it passed the range check.

Halfway through a gentle banking turn, total loss of control, and the plane flew off-range and into the side of a neighbor's house. Thank goodness the damage was limited to a punctured screen, and a massacre of foam. The owners were pretty unfazed, and I have (of course) offered to replace the screen.

The cowl is shattered, the motor and prop are toast, the fuselage is broken in two, and every mounting plate/ screw mount/ landing gear plate has been shredded from the foam. I will not fly or recharge what was a brand new battery again either.

The moral of the story is that I will no longer trust the HK receivers for anything that flies (or goes fast). The $60 savings cost me both a $178 plane and likely $100 for a new screen. And it could have been far worse.

Is not hobbyking. Is just spektrum. I have 3 orange futaba 2 frsky futaba and 1 corona futaba. I never got a signal issue.

By the other hand lost of signal in spektrum can happen also with OEM rx. Stay away from spektrum.

Yesturday night i was reading in a website that one of the fact in spektrum lost of signal are the linear bec since people use them on 3s the linear will not put more than .5amps . spektrum rx are amp eater so a linear bec/esc can cutoff the bec using spektrum on 3s shuting down the rx


GET FUTABA FASST


So if you are on stock ESC is a switching bec . ok for spektrum but dont use linear bec if you still on spektrum

I just switched over to Futaba FASST from being an avid Spektrum user for over 3 years. Just too many unexplained signal losses. I used to loathe the Futaba fanatics and now I am one...oh well...I like Futaba original and FrSky rx's so far for the last two months.

Are you suggesting that my issues are with the $200+ DX6i (newer DSMX version), and not the $25 (RX + satellite) receiver? I'd be a little surprised at that!

The rest of my setup was as per the PNP version.. stock motor, 2200mAH 25C 3S Battery, stock 30A ESC, and stock prop.

I was flying 2/3 throttle around 100m downrange, and 40m elevation. I have flown the same pattern with the same plane probably a hundred times without incident.

Transmitter voltage was 6.9V on Lithium batteries.
