Longer flights and shorter battery life...3.0 is usually the low option on a LVC - 3.5 means the pack will have 10.5v when I land IMO that would be fine but still prefer to land with them closer to 11v... my $.02

Says something about the T-28 huh.

on the Supercub thread were pushing 1,000!!!!!! Oh yeah you guys, the longest time I've ever gotten was when me and my friend kept doing touch and goes and landings. Our battery lasted about 1/2 an hour and we didn't even hit LVC!!

I agree with you 100% I try and time all my flights to try and come down with the battery no lower then 11.1, It's safe for the battery's and still gives me time if I need to make another pass or two.

Well I fly short 6-8 min flights on all my models... I thought it was coming from heli's due to them just being less efficient (lets face it glide angle sucks) but it could also be my neck and back injury from the army (20% disabled) I just can't stand there and stare up that much which explains my recent addiction to flying low....

Whatever the explanation it has saved my lipos I think as to date I've only had one go bad on me and it was when I left it on the heli's receiver for two weeks (apparently vregs can draw power even when "off")... I've had some loose power after 50-60 cycles but have never had one "puff" when in use...

ive never had a puff either

have you done pilates? my dad is pretty messed up in the back (ejecting out of an f16 messes you up) and has been doing pilates. it seems to help alot. and the odd thing that helped was accupuncture. he just got back a week ago from DC- he was seeing Fmr VP chenney's doctor, who did accupuncture and it helped him alot. my dad was really skeptical about it, but the AF was paying for him to go, so he just gave it a shot. PM me if ya want more info....

flying the SC with big lipos, i get it up, then lay down- you are keeping your head normal, but still can look up.


cant lay down and fly the trojan yet, well, mabe, if i was flying safe....


the last time i was flying, my wingtip came well within a foot of the ground while i was flying knife edge (in a turn) supa scary......

Sorry Ted, I miss spoke, the manual says the LVC is preset closer to 3V per cell than 3.5V I mentioned. Of coarse I'm probably wrong about that too.

Got the results from my retracts!


Boy are they awesome!

This little beast took them straight up into the air with its stock motor and a 3s2200 lipo with no problem. I flew in 15-20mph winds with 100% success.


If anyone wants them done to their plane, ship me your plane and I'll do them for you! Fee of course!
