I have a bunch of these coming to try out.. As it's been reported on here that they are plug and play..

I just grabbed one of the nanos from a post in the classifieds. It's kinda aggravating that they make you think the "anylink" will work with your radio no matter what it is. Then in the manual for it says if you own any of several spektrum radios, like the dx8, 7s, 5e, 4e, you still have to drop another 20 bucks for yet another adapter. I think I will sell the "somelink" and recoup the money I spent on a new rx. I hope it works

That's what you get for only ordering enough and not doubling or tripling the order to make sure you get enough good ones for your project..

You have to remember that WE are the Hobby King QC department and WE have to weed out the good from the bad..

thats what im using, kind of a pain to plug in all the servos with short leads, but works perfect. flew about a dozen flights after install with no issues.

I have a stripped down AR6100 soldered into mine. I took the plugs off and hard wired everything.

Success!!!...I got the new canopy in (THANKS DAVID!!!) and put in 4 flights this afternoon...With the dime in place this plane is PERFECT!!!...I flew 2 flights with Thunderpower 250mAh G6 batts and 2 flights with Hyperion 240mAh batts...TP batts allowed 4:45 second flights before the LVC kicked in...Hyperion batts got right at 4 minutes before LVC...250/240 mAh batts are perfect for me balance and weight-wise...350mAh batts allowed the dime to be removed but the plane felt heavy and wanted to tuck the nose in the turns...The last flight that I made was in my back yard...I FINALLY have a jet that I can walk out of my back door and FLY!!!

motor does not work !!


Some help please got the little bugger all fired up and ran thru the first battery without any trouble. What a great flight. Charged the battery and now the motor no longer works after only one flight ?
When I lift the throttle stick to arm the motor I get a weak beep then when I lower the stick it barely emits any noise. When I then lift the stick to check motor operation it just groans an barely turns.
Any thoughts please I hate for it to be busted after only one flight

You may have already checked this but, just in case....

Check your Throttle Trim and make sure it is all the way to NULL (OFF).
