what size pack are you using wingman? also, any way you can post a close up pic of your main gear door arm that attaches to the leg? i got some ball cup ends, i just want to get a idea of the geometry involved.
LoL yep I went through the same thing, just when I think I had the final weight a pound shows up out of now where saying hey don't forget about me and my younger brother 1/2 pound, we want to ride along too. Then their cousins 2 pounds along with their younger son 1/4 pound give you the puppy dog eyes and they want to ride too. Next thing you know you got yourself a good o'l family reunion.
I use two 2000mah nimh batts to power everything.
On the gear door I glassed in the little piece the ball attaches to the door as the door ripped off in flight one time when I lowered the gear. I now employ landing gear extention speeds like the big boys.
Now I don't dump the gear until I am way slowed down. Thats a big plank of a door and the wind will catch it.
