Nap!!


It looks everyone is in the same stage of the build. Mine is 95% with only a few adjustments left. Had to do some thinking on the receiver and battery placement.Should be ready tomorrow!!

Stuffed my rx in behind the sevos today, also,i didn't like the way that 20 amp E.S.C was looking at me, switched it out for a 40 amp topflight,should not be to much over the top.

QUESTION,has anyone got one of thease topflight 40 ampers, don't know how to set this e.s.c to brake, little help fellas?

I flew my Walrus properly today. Flew very well. It flies very slow with flaps and can fly quite fast without, if you want to. I had about 6 or 7 flights. I mixed some rudder with the ailerons and some down elevator wit the flaps. Didn't really see the need to change anything.
It was pretty gusty today but the Walrus handled it ok. Rudder correction for gusts where no problem.
It climb on 1/2 throttle and just about just let it go to hand launch.Good fun.

First time I have flown a RC plane in about 5 years.....

When you Google words like make, number, manual, instructions, pdf, you are most likely to find it.

First it is a Topflight 40 amp, then it is a Topfire 45 amp, you're not making it easy for us
Could you take a picture of it, or at least write down exactly what is written on the ESC?
