I just learned something I should have learned when I first started flying rc planes - turn on the TX first before powering up the RX. I just got a no-name ESC that when I plugged the battery into the RX and then turned on the TX, the motor started spinning full speed and the throttle would not shut it off.
Fortunately I was testing the motor without a prop so no damage done.
From now on I will turn my TX on first and turn it off last.

Bought this wing including electrics for less than $30. Went together really fast and is ready to fly. Incredible WCL is 2.7 as it has 341 sq in wing area and auw 9.9 oz. Flys on a 2s 900mah lipo. Hope I have better luck than with my last wing which I got all of 3 minutes flying time out of it before it ended up on our football field awning. Still waiting for high wind to blow it down.
I laminated the fuse and tail with copy shop laminate making it very strong.

Lost my wing somewhere in this picture. Frustrating build, finally got all the issues sorted out then lost link with RX and it flew here.

I bought this wing here in China with electronics included for about $50. Wing was well made and included all parts, carbon spars, foam wings, plywood motor mount, control servo linkages, horns,etc. Went together in couple of leisure hours. The motor and controller had plugs already attached so no soldering. I had my own servos and battery.
Its just not worth making my own epp wings when the kits are so cheap and well made.
Ready to maiden tomorrow I hope if the football field here is free.
800mm, 230 grams AUW, 900mah 2s lipo, 4.5 prop, 2400kv motor.
