I want to use higher PWM on my ESC, so on someone's recommendation from this website I bought the following items to make a shield to protect my radio reception using higher Pulse Width Modulation. Should make the ESC more efficient. Especially at mid range throttle. I will solder the resistor to the tape and then wire that into the negative of the battery.

Now that I changed props on my Durafly 1100mm Stuka to a 12x6 two blade, the plane is much more enjoyable to fly. Takes off without a hint of tail swing and flies super scale like. No longer a speed demon.gets way better flight times too. 9 minutes of mixed flight. Because its a G model it has anti tank guns that are always susceptible to breaking on nose over, I am converting mine to a D model bomber. Dive bombing is way more fun. Ordered up some bomb drop mechanisms from Yellow Aircraft and am waiting for them to arrive. In the meantime I thought "hey I am going to need a siren". I had a broken AirHog helicopter on my bench and said to myself "that thing looks just like what I need. Now all I need is a scale bomb and bomb release trapeze.

Here is my RAM machine gun sound unit. I lightened it up by shortening up all the wires and getting rid of the 9volt. It use to way 76 grams and now weighs 66 grams. All up weight with up the battery, servo and container it weighs 130grams. It use to weigh 119 with just the battery and unit no servo or container. Plan is to put it in the Stuka. It is too big for the Spad.
