switching radio


What I ment by switching was: removing rx from Sonic, and put it into Typhoon. Next used Sonic's tx radio to control that rx that I put from Sonic into Typhoon.

hello guys i also have a sort of love hate relationship with the yak 54 and HH for that matter, i bought my yak for full price at ultimate hobbies in orange ca flew it 4 times and it flew amazingly tons of power, incredibly snappy, not the best slow speed characteristics though! But on the fifth flight i got about two minutes in and came in for a low inverted pass and about halfway down the runway rite in front of me the elevator servo shot to full up and stuck there, inverted nose down into the ground smashed the nose all up and broke the fuse in half went home and tested everything and the elevator servo replicated the lock out twice under minor stick movements so i ordered a new fuse motor mount and all new mg servos hk corona ds929 mgs about 12 bucks each they work great but after waiting about a month and a half for the fuse the elevator support tube was totally crooked off plane from the wings so i had to break and cut my new fuse i waited a month and a half for just to get it straight but shes flying again with no mishaps im installing a 3 axis gyro on it now to help me out with the low slow 3d stuff i will post my results. and during all this i contacted HH and told them about the servo mishap just so they knew i wasnt expecting anything from them and the dude told me he reccomends replacing the servos because to keep the cost down($400) they had to use mid quality servos was how he phrased it that was a response i would expect out of hobbyking not horizon.

Lost mine today due to signal loss from about 300 feet away even after doing a successful range test at 30 paces.

I'm still bummed out and have no clue what prevented the plane from responding to inputs.
