Stupid....


This is absurd...I've got other things I have to work on...I don't have hours to spend adding ounces to the prop trying to get it balanced....

Regarding failing servos especially the elevator...I just went back and rebound/completely reset my DX7 for my Yak.

Is it possible that people are adjusting the travel prior to hitting the reversing switch for a particular surface? Here are the settings I had to program for travel adjust to get the correct throws (I kept them toward the lower end of the tolerances stated in manual)...

Ailerons------------Rudder--------------Elevator
----Left: 124%--------Left: 124%-------- Up: 116%
----Right: 90%--------Right: 130%-------Down: 140%

These travel adjust settings achieved the correct throws measured with calipers. So if you were using a DX7 and AR7000 (like myself) and you set the travel adjust and THEN reversed the elevator servo it would try and make the up elevator travel 24% more then recommended. The elevator also has the lowest range 48mm-50mm. 2mm tolerance when the other surfaces are 5 & 10mm.

Just wondering? Want to help keep myself or anyone else from loosing a plane due to servo failure if it can be helped.

I have a Torque 2818T/900 motor and I am wondering if it would work with this kit. Any one have any idea.

Have you checked you motor mount for signs of cracking? A cracked motor mount can cause similar problems that you described.

I would run the cnc and use the stocker as a backup. My guess is if you bend the cnc bracket you will need more than a new mount to fix the plane. Lol

The stock props are very hit and miss and they are likely what's causing the excessive vibration. Out of 5, I have one that is sort of kind of ok.

From the flightline today

The APC 12x6 prop rocks. You will need a washer to make up the space on the prop nut. Runs smooth and NO NOISE......

Hate to tell you bud but you'll have to fly something other than your warbirds to do that kind of fancy flyin'
