In the view camera menue (chase and cockpit) are grayed out. This did work. I also noted the chase cockpit was grayed out in my friend sim. we dont know why. Does anyone know why and is there a fix?? Otherwise I am pleased with the sim.

Why does a rc brushless motor that is running at the proper voltage and current stop and then run again? Is there some thermal shutdown involved in the motor. Could it be the esc? I do not want to use this motor in flight if it not reliable. Could someone give me some suggestions?

Charging and discharging lipo batteries in parallel.

I have a board with 4 dean connecters in parallel. Each dean connecter has a 10 ohm serious resister to isolate it from the other connecters. I figured the maxim voltage differential I can have between a 3 cell fully charged and a discharged lipo is 3 volts. Assuming 3.2 volts /cell. Connecting 4 lipos to the board and allowing sufficient time for them to equalize. I then put all the batteries on another parallel board without a resistor and charge them together. If I have 4 .500c batteries I charge them at 2amps.
Under these conditions I do not mix the number of cells to charge or discharge. I do not think the capacity of the battery would make a difference. Comments please.

I recently purchased this camera. The instructions were to charge for 8 hrs until charging light goes out. The charging light never went out and the unit gets quite warm. The video and sound is intermittent and freezes up. When video is running it is quite good. The instructions seem to indicate that when this happens the battery could be bad. Has anyone had experience with this camera?

My controler does not have a reverceing switches for the servos. Can I reverse 2 of the 3 wires on the servo plug to accomplush the same thing without distroying the rcvr? The servo I am trying to change is used for the airerons and I cant change the servo arms to change direction of motion.

I need an answer soon.
