Wow. Are you on night shift

Area51 are supposed to have stock of the RTR sometime this week. The guy told me to order by phone as the postage would be cheaper. They have some DualSky 3.7g digi servo's too, don't know how good they are though. Hope this helps. I'm off to look for your YouTube channel.

Edit: you got some toy's. Looks like some good stuff, I'll spend a while perusing those later.

I'm using the Dualsky 3.7 grams (DS3103) in my Mini and they are excellent. Very good centering, react to every click of trim, fast and strong. I was worried that it shouldn't be strong enough for the ailerons, but my concerns was unfounded, it works great!

Rc you will love the mini crack yak. It doesnt float like the 32" yak but still flys great. You have to be on your toes with this one lol


Update about the motor I returned to RB. Still no email reply back as I have sent 2.
Give it to the weekened or I will have to contact paypal. I dont like slating anyone on a forum but I very much doubt I will use him again, or if I do I will make 100% sure its the correct thing in the first place.

Mostly uhupor but with some E6000 on the nose, wingtips and anywhere else that I thought might get bashed. I also used E6000 to secure the landing gear and all over the feet.

I find that after a few E6000 repairs, my planes pretty much stop breaking. Can you tell that I like E6000.

As mentioned the rectangle is for reinforcing the part where the gear goes through. You will be fine without it.

The circles can be stacked together to make spacers for standing the motor off of the motor mount if you lose the plastic spacers that come with it. So you probably won't need them.

Protecting ESC with CorrosionX


This morning after a snowy landing, my motor started twitching for the third time in as many days. Luckily I'd already ordered some CorrosionX and it arrived a short time later.

I put the motor/ESC in a cup and added CorrosionX until it just covered the ESC. After swishing it around a bit I dabbed it with a paper towel before screwing it back onto the plane.

The snow is starting to melt now so it's pretty wet outside. I'm happy to report no more twitching after nosing it into the snow a few times! Before it was twitching with very little provocation. After the dunking it received this afternoon, I'm pretty confident this stuff works well.

Thanks Aviefly for the suggestion. This was a much better idea than my original one of using PlastiDip. It's lighter and a lot easier to cover everywhere it's needed. My multirotor KK2 board will be next in line for treatment.
