I am not a spider specialist... but, Funnel Web or Tarantula (no trap door opening, that I can see, so I guess a Tarantula!)??
Could be a bird eating spider I guess...... or the VERY rare, model plane eating spider.....

Hmm... coming out of the ground should probably have been the big clue! LOL

No ignorance at all. Don't take it to heart bro, your contributions are welcome. If you never said anything you would've thought otherwise.

Hi, I am Michael from Taipei
Hi guys,

I recently maiden my Su-35, but failed. I found the thrust of left EDF is higher than the right at full throttle. All components are new except both of the ESC, which are used in different planes before. Could you pls suggest me how to adjust or synchronize them. BTW, I use JR DSX9II transmitter. Many thanks!

see if your esc's support a throttle calibration function and if so perform the function, otherwise you could put the esc's on seperate channels and adjust them seperatly......assuming you dont have a problem with either of the edf units

For one idea, at least Calibrate the ESC's.
1) Set TX Throttle to max
2) Power the plane - ESCs will NOT start the motors, they will go into programming mode.
3) Wait just a little bit (10secs) and then move to zero throttle. The ESC's will leave programming mode.

They will have learnt the throttle ranges, from max possible to min possible, during that.

Most ESCs are in that "auto throttle range" mode as they come. But they can also be in a manual mode where they don't "learn" like that, but just use a set value range - which usually would work ok too, but could be amiss from one ESC to the other.
I don't know if we, or anyone, knows the programming method on Freewings (but I think you said they were other types anyway - so you might have a manual for those)

JCD & Peter, thanks a lot.

Ouchhhh, that sounded to me like a bad ESC, or terribly unbalanced fan blade, my grey camo Su35 had horribly unbalanced blades and spinners, go back in this thread and see my vid ;-)

Forgot to mention from the your first throttle up it sounded distressed, definitely was a MAJOR problem

Yeah !! I couldn't watch the video earlier.
There was something badly wrong on that first spin up!
Possibly blade contact... but more sounded like an ESC/motor problem. Seemed to be just on one.
Maybe even something loose in one fan/motor.

So you would need to run them one at a time, and SLOW first... build up if things sound ok.... to work out what it really is.
Ideally, taken out and done on the bench test unit. Plus CHECK IT FIRST for clear rotation, feeling right, things tight etc.
That short burst in the video wasn't enough to isolate it.

Watching that video depressed me! Such a great loss!. I also learned from it to take my time months if necessary to make sure everything is as close to 100% as humanly possible. I will check each and every componet and then check them again before taxi down the runway. Where do you get those motor bench test units?

You are a "go" for reentry

Which one? ESC, Fan or Motor? I forgot what your current setup was.
