When setting up my 78" Ailerons, and elevators, I ran out of throw(one direction,due to sub-trim) trying to reach my 3D rates. After Centering the servo's, and adjusting the TX trims to zero I was able set the max throws appropriately.

The HPP-21 is the best 27$ I ever spent!

I set the center, and endpoints up, but left the overload protection off. Do you use it? I'm just ystarting to mess with digitals, so your input is appreciated.

Its nice when the guys with experience, that really fly chime in! Thanks!
Tim I started turning it on after I bound up a servo and it browned out my reciever and fried the servo and crashed my plane.
I haven't had an issue since. Now if I trash a gear set I only have to worry about getting a plane down with out that control surface instead if worrying about frying the servo and crashing the plane

Ok cool.. so theres pro's, and cons, because it shuts down the servo if there's reistance(Trashed gear,weeds caught in the rudder,etc.)Right?

Hooray, My Laser (and 60" Edge) will be here next week!

(thanks for dealing with my penny pinching on shipping Curtis!)

I'll be happy when I'm in San Antonio in a few months and shipping will be cheaper! $85 for two ARFs is a lot!

I just payed $54 for a 48" edge to AK and that is the cheapest... Worth it to get the EXP tho.

Hey Tim, did you say that the HP21 will program any brand of servo, not just Hitec? Thanks.

Not sure how it can "program" other brands?

from the HiTec manual: "Hitec Digital Servo Programer, and Servo Tester for ALL Servo brands"
