Slight set back in my final steps of the build. Today I was doing a final check on the control surfaces. Some how,and I still cant figure out how,as i set the tx down the tiny anylink plug comes out,the motor goes to full throttle.Slices my pinky and the next two fingers,as I scramble to shut it down.Two hours and 9 stiches later I still cant figre how this happened.
The plane looks like it had a bird strike. Did I miss something. Pics in the am

Ouch! thats not too good, sorry to hear this.
I guess there is no fail safe using the anylink system.
If there is none then thats a serious issue because its easy for the TX plug to unplug itself .

Being new to electric planes, I was unaware that this could happen.My MQX wont do it nor my mcpx. If this is normal for this ,its not good.Does anyone know if the spetrum rx is the same way or is this a problem with the anylink. I will most surely switch to the spectrum ,I'm not fond of the wires hanging off the tx anyway.Enliten me Please.

I feel this shows how dangerous electric planes are , when I was doing some checkings the other day I happened to touch the throttle an then panicked so I made it full throttle and the plane flew into a big paper bag on the floor, made some cuts in the paper. Luckily no cat or person was in the way... There should be a separate switch for the electric motor, how could this be made ?

Sorry for your fingers, hope you heal quickly !

Well I use a Spectrum DX7 and all Spectrum receivers and if I turn OFF the Radio the Plane is neutral nothing works.
If you can program MIXES you can program a throttle cut with a switch but if there is no fail safe on your system then its not good if the radio goes off or the wire unplugs again.

Wow...I did something VERY similar with the Beaver as well. I couldn't figure out how the throttle went to full, but your explanation might be MY cause as well. Mine was back in December...I ended up with 4 cuts...worst was to my ring finger. that was cut to the bone. Ended up with about 25 stitches in the various wounds. I have pics...but they are pretty gory LMAO

My wife didn't appreciate the blood on the ceiling in the dining room though

I have the Dx6i, so there is this failsafe if the tx is turned off but there in no way of locking the throttle on the tx. There is always a risk that it will be moved when the tx is on and the lipo connected to the motor
Murphys Law will make this happen at the worst possible time

If you cant program a throttle cutto a switch in airplane mode maybe try to use the Heli mode and use the iddle cut off, if I remember a club member had done this but I dont remember if it was the DX6i

well i know my attempted amputation (failed thank god) wasn't from hitting the throttle. I have a BIG elastic that wraps from the carry handle around under the transmitter and hooks onto the throttle stick...no way to advance it with that attached

I am sure,absolutly that I did not hit the trottle,its still at zero the way it was when it happened. I am going to remove the prop and do some checking ,but I AM DEFFINATELY SWITCHING TO THE SPETRUM RX. The cut on my pinky is to the bone as well,i could have been much worse. I got the same responce from the other half ,after the return from the Doc.

Sorry to be a "tail end Charlie", but am not relishing looking through EVERY post in this discussion. Can the receiver be pulled out, and replaced with something else?

You have to take the prop off when tinkering with things. Common sense prevails here.
