Please note that telemtery accuracy is of weak tolerance and it is to be taken as a guideline, not as an absolution.

Ive heard of good things with the DX8's new DSMX. About a better reliability compared to the DSM and DSM2 technologies. However, that does not meant it is a perfection. The common solution for a secure signal used by large scale pilots is to run two or even three high-powered individual radio backup systems, thats the closest you can get to a perfectly secured signal. Still, those rare disruptions can still happen, this universe is filled with noisy radio waves.

Mate, I know what I'm talking about and I understand how unpredictable electronics can operate, irregardless of voltage stability. However, you hit a contradictory moment there. You were saying that "as long as the voltage is stable" and now you are saying that "the voltage is never stable". I see where this is going and I don't appreciate it. Too bias to my comfort. Lets just end this. It was suppose to be a casual recommendation for Joncreid.


Joncreid, don't be confused. The Devo8 that you have is more than enough for the Stinger64 despite it using DSSS technology! If you haven't had any problems with it, then just use it for now. Ive used DSSS tech for a long time before upgrading, never had any major issues or plane losses with DSSS.


SteveC, Got it! Thanks!

It should fly at least once
clive45's Avatar
You know its a wonderful thing that HK has done in encouraging new people into RC by having low prices and a huge range of items covering just about everything RC.
Unfortunately there are those who now think that they can fly anything for about $150 or the less the better. This will lead to disappointment and a loss of some to the RC hobby, but worst of all it will cause accidents. Everyone is concerned enough to explain why they should buy something more expensive but hardly ever explain the possibility of accidents to them selves and the public in general. Your aircraft is the least consideration when it comes to damages or death
Don't get me wrong cheap items are very good if you know what your doing and understand what is required for your aircraft. We are seeing more and more new fliers trying to start off in scale and EDF aircraft without ever having flown anything before.
Just reading some of the posts makes you cringe, I think instead of trying to advise blind, encouraging them to join a club or at least get together with those who have and are flying now would be better.
Well that's my rant for the end of the year
Lets all have a safe Christmas.

HET 6404 - Take Two...


I received the 6404 fan yesterday - the correct item this time :-) The shroud is noticeably more flexible than a 6904 shroud - not great since it's designed to take a 28mm motor. It's a totally different design, the intake lip is not detachable. Happily, it drops right into the Stinger fuz

Good luck
Im been flying mine for about 2yrs now with 0 issues all on the stock firmware. I know that i could have bought a more $$$$ name brand radio, but who are we kidding all our rc stuff comes out of china. It just has a different badge on it.

If spectrum or futaba is your thing then more power to you. But to people that hate on people for thinking or going outside the box once in a while shame on you.

If anyone is interested in rewinding the stock motor, I put some pics in my blog. I'm doing the last one now, so I'll add a few more pics as I go.

Don, it would be interesting to hear your comments about relative performance of the 6404 versus the other two 64mm units you do. Guessing the rotor might be a bit heavier therefore harder to spin - it looks identical to a 6904 rotor with shorter blades.

I am hoping it will take higher watts. I would like to use this fan at about 800 watts or so.
