The only thing I can think of is they love to travel and this way they can count it off the old taxes as a business trip. Their prices are cheap at the shows. I'm like you, I'm not sure how they make much money but is sure is good to see them at the shows.

I had a chance to paint the Chubby, we had a few days of rain.
The sun came back out so I was excited to try a maiden flight. I also received a new motor I ordered the Tigre .10. A bit big for this plane, I didn't know it was so large when I ordered it. I'm not sure what size or weight plane this motor is for ( I still have alot to learn) but it worked Great in the Chubby!! I flew at 3/4 throttle or less the whole time. With a 9/6 prop the plane did nice rolls,loops and verticles. I ran out of batt. on the cam. but it was a Great flight bumpy landing I broke my prop but its ok I have plenty thanks to HK

Reading more about these Lipos, a statement was made that the standard NiMh fully charged can reach 12.16V, but that that voltage drops rapidly to 11.6v, which I was used to seeing on the display.

So looking at my charger I see I have a storage option that charges each cell to 3.860, for a total of 11.580v (if I added that correctly).

Seems like a reasonable way to charge the battery. I can lower this per-cell voltage, but so far, I have not had any issues with my DX7 - maybe just a matter of time.

So I think I have probably talked too much about this.

Dalton - what are the new plans your mentioned?

Bob,
Ton's of Thanks for posting the video! I had not reset my alarm and really needed to do that. You've not talked to much, that is how we learn from each other, so keep it coming.

I drew up plans for an idea I had. You know me, always trying to put a twist on with some nutty idea. I'm really just playing. Have you built anything new?

Cheers Bob,

I have charged mine to 12.2 in my Futaba now. I think the biggest issue is when someone uses a fully charged 20C pack, the initial end rush of 20C is just too hot. The Pack I have is like 6C.

I have now went to the 2S2000 6C lipo for the RX in my new Profile Glow Plane, it feeds a Turnigy UBEC and gives a solid 6 volts to the RX and Servos. Lighter then the Nicad / Nimh bats and you get a better health info just from Lipos.
