i bought this plane only because i want to relax and i plan to fly every weekend for maybe an hour or so. i will have 3 stock batteries. im not going to do too much as far as mods are concerned. i really dont want the wings to be attached for days. now i see why people recommend those popsicle mods etc. i didnt undertand that until now.

maybe i could just take the rubber bands off without messing with the wear and tear of the fuse, unscrewing the struts

Thank you Sir. I wasn't gonna mention this because I figured it was a know issue with the antenna being tucked too far into the fuse and I didn't want to get blown out of the water with such a post and being a newb at planes I never recalled reading a post about the antenna and brown outs caused by the pushrods.

Gee, I feel like a true "contributor" to this thread now

North thanks for the heads up on the prop balancer. I'll probably take a ride to my LHS tomorrow and see what they have. I thought these would be easy to make using home materials.

@quitch I just love what you did to the garage

Thanks, That is actually and old picture. I have now maximized the plane holders to hold two planes at a time. Retract planes on top and fixed on the bottom.

That outboard is for may Santana 20 sailboat. I have never used the outboard in 17 years. I usually fish on my buddies 21 foot power boat. Salt water.

Camera now has some juice so here are some pictures of the sound module. It is made to look like a bomb.

Machine gun sounds that is hilarious! Need to get us some video. Way to go!

I have been having major brownOut issues Chappy Chap. Been asking around and made my own thread. Guys that seem very experienced are saying the only way to get a blinking RX is by loss of power. Either a loose wire connection somewhere. Or a battery draining to LVC. Theyre also saying look for binding servos which can cause large drains. Im stumped cause this is happening on 3 different planes. Cant find any loose wires. Control surfaces all have free movement the distance they travel. But relating to your post they are saying its not a reception or antenna type problem.

Not sure what the effects of a bare antenna hitting a metal pushrod would be. Might just turn it into a longer antenna.

My experience with blinking RX falls into to modes for what it's worth:

1) If I don't power off the TX (dx8 in my case) after disconnecting the ESC on the plane, then I get a blinking RX - but if flies fine.

2) If it get a blinking RX after flying - so what. I have not had any loss of control issues.

I have had loss of control and crashes, but have not had any of these in ages since using either separate UBEC to power the ESC using something like this: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=33297

or a Capacitor on the RX itself like this:

i get the plane thursday. how exactly do i trim the elevator? fly at half throttle and then trim elevator so it flies straight, at half throttle? is that it?

the reason i ask is because i thought elevator was supposed to be used to go up and down, and throttle for speed.

The experienced flyers, many who are actual pilots, will tell you it's actually the opposite

I'm no expert, but most guys I know of, including myself, trim the elevator for level flight at 50% throttle. Increasing throttle at that point makes you climb, decreasing lets you descend.

That's how I like to fly my Champ... 1 foot above the crops in the field out back, dead calm at dusk with my LEDs

... with a smoke hanging out of my mouth.

very relaxing.

You have the right idea. You'll be fine.
