And even when you think you got everything right ... :

Last Flight of Kevin's YAK-54 (1 min 29 sec)


This is hopefully my only "off-topic" reply - please try to stay on-topic.

There is a reason why beginner models are usually not made from wood anymore.

2 simplest options:

1)go to nearest electronics shop and get male and female single row goldpin connector and some heat shrink tubes. Very light connector but no reverse polarity protection so double check when you plug in your lights.

2)go to nearest hobby shop and get green Multiplex connector. It has 6 pins, is keyed so no way to connect it wrong but much heavier than goldpin and harder to disconnect.

The power system, servos, and Rx came in this week. This the first kit I've put together, so I assembled everything and bound the Tx to it to ensure it all worked together. This is my first experience w/ a brushless motor, those things are stealth quiet! Waiting on the Small Parts CNC Easy Star ii motor mount to arrive, and then its build time.

No ailerons?

What are the components of the various systems?

Terry has some nice motor mounts :-) and ships them out PDQ

I don't see 4 servos ?? For sure ya need to have Ailerons - makes this plane much easier to fly with that small Rudder ... ...te

I did get 4 servos to setup the ailerons, the two in the photo are actually connected with the Y harness.

I am trying to understand why you need a special motor mount to use this motor on your EZ 2. What am I missing.

Thank you. Todd

As it turns out, I don't need one. When I first pulled the c-clip off the Power-Up 400 and took the motor apart, there was only one groove on the shaft for the c-clip, meaning the shaft could only be configured for 'standard' forward facing mounting. I had already ordered the mount, and out of curiosity emailed Heads Up's customer service this morning to confirm the shaft was non-reversible. They said the stock Power Up 400 was not reversible, but that the shaft from their Fire Power 400, which does support reverse mounting for pusher installation, could be installed on the Power Up 400.

In any case, I received the mount, and it is extremely high quality. And it has 3 mounting positions allowing up to a 9 inch prop to be installed. Probably not necessary, but what are gadgets without options

If this has been answered please accept my apologies for asking but I did a search and couldn't find the answer.

Does this power system still work for the Easy Star II?
