Which fc are you running?
Just the receiver that came with my turnigy radio. Just building a plane to start with. It's already a bit daunting coming only from a car back ground in RC. Guess thats the bad thing about buying a kit online vs something ready to go or local. Got the rudder hinged, the elevator hinged. The wing built mostly

I'm building an Albatross from first plane for me and was hoping to have it done and try to get my disabled brother a chance at getting into the hobby

I've got a 2200mah 11.1 bat with XT60 on it, an XT60 to solder onto the ESC but my charger doesn't support the XT60 as I mentioned. Or I would just stick with them. Pretty cheap build all around less than 300 bucks. Something easy to fly and that should not break easy

Building one of these for the first time is more daunting than I realized

Multi rotors=No Paycheck left
Ahh...ok...then the servo lead from the esc will plug into your throttle port on the rx...and the rest is the same...use your plug of choice on the power leads...and the put bullet connectors on the three motor leads...easy as pie

Where are you located?

I am getting some XT60 in today and I can give you one or two ..

What charger do you have? What plug is there right now? You just need a converter .. like XXX -> XT60 and all good (which you/I can build ourselves)

I can change them for you if your not quite comfortable about doing it on a charged battery.
I'm down by Ralph's at College ave and Oside blvd.

By far my favorite connector and I dont use them on planes because I'm so vested in Deans is the Traxxas connector.

The charger right now has deans, traxxas, and tamiya? style plugs

I am only a couple blocks from Ralph's there (Avenida Segovia off Avenida De la Plata) just one block up from Oside blvd and college

K, not far away. I'm off of Olive Ave.

Basically changing connectors you only cut and solder one wire at a time.
The two wires should never come in contact even if the battery is considered dead or uncharged.

If you go to the senior center this weekend or whenever really we can figure out from there.

Thing is I have no clue what vinyl works best and isn't going to weight the plane down. If you have ideas I can fund it the next pay check...
My buddy up the street at Moonlight Screenprinting can print you custom vinyl with any graphics on it.... FYI.


KLONER! Dood, Nex5 is money.
