Also my virus protection AVG is signalling red warning marks over RC Universe Forum so another one to beware

What was it warning about ? A specific threat ?

I got mine today.

I think that this is probably due to yesterday's GoDaddy issues. Too much of a coincidence.

I'm almost 100% sure that it's not possible with the Sport model. (Or not that easy.) I enquired from my dealer when I bought it. And this was confirmed when I Googled it.

There is a hack module available from HK but I don't think I want to go down that road really.

I've no experience of it but every review has five stars. May be worth looking at in more detail.

Dave My Balsa Wot 4 E used mini servos Metal Gear Hitec would be suggested

Looks like you were the only person to read what the OP said. I just commented on what someone else said wink

If it's this Wot 4e as opposed to an electrific 'normal' Wot 4 then the S3003s will not be suitable.

As you say, mini servos are in order in that case. Also, there's another thread about this model.

We were typing at the same time. I picked GBP as it's more meaningful even if it is likely to vary slightly, as suggested.

Showing at £7.36 plus postage but that may vary depending on the exchange rate.

Agreed but watch out for the copies though. According to comments on here, those have white output shafts and the mounting lugs are 'slotted', not 'holed'.

HK just got these in today at their UK warehouse. I've no experience of it but there will be reviews on the main warehouse item.

Ok, so the weather's been pants all year but tonight, it looks like I may get in a couple of flights. After a walk down to the field to check the conditions, I walked back for the TX and my PZ P47-D.

I stepped outside, hooked the DX8 onto the metal clip on the strap only to watch it immediately drop to the floor and bounce from the tarmac onto the grass, the strap still around my neck. The metalwork was attached to the TX.

I can't see any marks on the outside. There is a slight noise from within the TX when I shake it. I don't know if that's normal.

I took it down to the field and did a range check with the AR600 in the BNF P-47D and only got to fifteen paces (not even full yards) before the model would not respond to the controls on reduced power. The model was on the grass with the gear up with the RX as PZ installed it. To be honest, I probably never did a range check with the model but today's tests suggest that things aren't right and that maybe my TX is bust ?

Someone on HelFreak experienced the same thing with his TX dropping off the strap. Never had that issue with my Futaba one.

spares or repairs? I don't think I'd use them for either...

Are you sure that you couldn't use the 'EXCHAUSTS ' ? laugh

My ORX arrived yesterday. I was thinking about putting it in my PZ P-47D but when I pulled the hatch, I realised that I'd over-estimated the amount of free space in there.

I was also thinking about putting it into a Bixler with a load of LEDs on it. That sort of plane ought to make a good winter model to help make up for a very sparse Summer flying season.

Welcome to the forum.

I don't know the TX but there's advice here that suggests that 100m is all you can rely on.

That's not very far and you also mentioned going faster so maybe this isn't going to be up to it.

There were a number of models I tried to buy but coulnt strike a deal.1 guy offered me a Super Scorpion with OS 40 Surpasse for £80 i took the money out and he said to come back later whilst he took the engine out,my money swiftly returned to my pocket.There were other models tried to buy unsuccessfully also,and I couldnt find any engines that for the price i was prepared to risk.I did buy a Hangar 9 in its box ,a Hangar 9 out of its box and a Blackhorse model as new,very pleased.

Which Hangar 9s ?
