This is mine, I put some velcros on the box to stick all the lipos I have (5 in total and box only haves 3 holes), also put some velcros on the big square foam that covers the canopy for safe traveling

and had to put an improved box handle (not like the P-51 box that has handle and easy opening)


Damage a bit the tail but with foam safe glue got it fixed.

I was thinking about what you said and I just took a break and was tinkering with the plane again. The stock 25OmAh battery that came with the Mossie needed charging so I just so happened to plug in a 160 mAh to do some static testing. The plane works PERFECT with the 160 MAh battery with NO Aileron servo movement at low rpm.
When I plug the 250 mAh back in I get the erratic aileron servo movement again at low rpm.

How is that possible? Could a "funky" battery have caused this problem?

I need to buy a new 250 mAh battery and test it again.

Actually doing that is likely to make things worse by coupling the signals in the wires together. Far better to twist each set of wires separately - noting that on mine at least the servo wires are twisted, but the motor wires aren't significantly.

I like to find out how you lube the bearings on this tiny motor or does it have bushings?

Not sure if you can do this on these micro motors, maybe but I have never tried. The technique I posted about was for larger brushed motors like we had to use before brushless motors came along...

Gary,

I did realize which size Brushed motors you were referring and again my question is pretty to the point of even bothering with these tiny motors to dump them in water to "Break em in" as someone posted earlier.

I don't think you can re-lube this tiny motor after you submerge it under water and if so, I would love to see some more details.

I think that this Tiny Brushed motor has such a small area on it's brush -to- commutator that it is just not worth doing any "Break in" procedure.

PS

If there was any wind, try it again with zero wind. It flies great with no wind!

No wind what so ever, I think it was just thermals, as I fly on a hot day usually.

Gave the mossie a second flight. This time I added nose weight. That did it, and she flies like a dream now! Going to fly it with a banner tomorrow, as it is election day for the state.

I have had no problems with my Mosquito! Followed the manual as far as control throws and added expo. I also have some Hyperion 240s and find these batteries very good. I have also flown my Mossie indoors and was very pleased to find that it slows down nicely, in fact I can get it to fly slower than my Parkzone J3 Cub !
