lol yea but it also needs a chain & sprocket, brake pads, i need to replace the fork seals, get a battery, repair a cam cap etc etc. So it will remain in the garage. It would be fantastic if i could get it road worthy for next summer

Sounds a heck of a project p4ddy, I'm just considering upgrading my SV650 to a Gixxer 750 or possibly a Triumph Daytona 675Se.

You guys are making me sad! Going from racing EX500, FZR400, and a RZ350. My street bikes ZX7 and a victory to nothing in 17 years

Oh I almost forgot the YSR50's that we use to race at gocart tracks in-between

Racing an RZ350.....Nice. Got any pics??

Most of the hard stuff has been done, strip down, clean & polish, strip & rebuild carbs, source lots of parts (fairing mostly) of ebay, rebuild again.

You can see the progress from ebay purchase to it's present state in this thread http://www.rcheliaddict.co.uk/off-to...-begins-3.html

He would ask me how the hell I could ride that so fast. I told him, with that one you gotta just let the bike do it's thing and hold on for dear life. I did get a second place trophy with it at Heartland Park Topeka Raceway. Could of had my first, first, but someone showed up with one of those dam 250GP's lol! It's the red one. I guess you can say I have two AMA's

Not today, but yesterday, I got one on my AS350, two on my Logo 500, and I maidened a brand new 700 that I am building as a camera ship. So far, it is stock looking, but has been altered in the Skookum software and TX so that it flys like a scale ship with large amounts of expo, medium amounts of pitch, and similar amounts of cyclic. Once I get the mount, the entire heli has to be reworked as a result of the 3 axis head out front. It is a dream to fly, takes wind like a champ (winds were above 15 mph and gusty), and at 1800 rpm, it is very quiet. Once the angled gears are installed (waiting on a KDE motor mount) it will be even more quiet. Take care.

Well, the quiet air days are over and the on-shore gale is back. Flew the 450 SE by the water in Oakland and it took hard concentration to do everything. Oh well! The alternative is not-flying....

What's Nitro?

Ok, I asked about the wrong one. I need to know the type of connector on that plugs into the balancing board. The pin spacing is much closer and the pins themselves are smaller than the Lipo's.

And as for flying today, if testing my 130x in the bedroom counts then yes.

Thanks Charles.

Charger don't use the same connectors. It's just the JST or KO have been winning the plug wars. The second most popular and may be what is on your pack is the Korean or TP/thunderpower. You just need to find a adapter. Here is a pic of both side by side. Use to need to get adapters all the time because you never knew what was going to come on the pack
