Check Ebay for tubing used in exercise machines. I know some who use it (as do I for some planes) and it's cheap and works fine. HTH.

You should also check Amazon for the Watts 3/8" OD x 1/4" ID latex tubing. I found it in 10 ft lengths for about $1/ft as opposed to $1.85 /ft at home depot.

I have a collection of Zippy LiPos that are puffed like sausages. Just disposed of 6 of them. They seemed to work fine but also seem to be very sensitive. I started making sure I used my charger to bring them down to storage level when not in use and that so far has kept my remaining Zippys from puffing while not being used. Storage is about 37% to 43% charge. Im using the Hyperion EOS SENTRY to determine the % of charge. There about $25.00 and most hobby shops carry them. They also balance your battery as well. Cool little bugger.

I'm having an issue trying to get the jitters out of my ZII. I'll post a video so you can see but I can't figure out what is making it jitter like this. The camera is strapped down TIGHT and I'm pretty sure ain't the cause. I wonder if my elevon hinges aren't perfect enough? There might be a 1/16'' gap or less but I got it as tight as I could and don't see how I could get it any closer. If anybody has any ideas I would like to hear them. It might be something stupid but I'm really getting fet up with the jitters.

I'm no expert but it sounds like flutter to me.

If it was flutter wouldn't it get hard to control? She flies beautiful in a full on dive and doesn't appear to be jittering when flying it line of sight. I can give er' tiny inputs and get response when diving like that.

Thanks for the replies dude. My first ZII was smooth as glass in flight and I'm having a heck of a time getting this one flying well for some reason.
