Thread: Radio set up! Need help!

Thanks to both of you!

Having just bought and started building a Ultrafly tutor 32e, I discovered I had a few things i was unsure about with the radio. I bought the trainer with preinstalled sevos, along with my Futaba 2.4 GHz radio set (I thought I would appreciate the quality servos more later). The problem is that the servos for the futaba set are red, white and the other coulour( cant remember right now) and the Ultrafly ones (ST40s) have orange red and brown wires, and no little notch at the side to make sure they go in right. I dont know which way round the plug should go. The second problem I have is do you need a switch harness/ switch in a electric model and it so does it go on the wire that goes from the esc to the reciever. And is there supposed to be a seperate BEC wire to the reciever as well (there isn't one on my ESC). All help would be mouch appreciared, and I'me sure I'me not the only beginer with the problem. Thanks to anyone who replies again!
Thread: Honey Bee FP arrived today!
20/03/2008 20:02:00
I've got the honeybee cp2. Its dead hard to fly (I've only flown it once) and when it says preflown in the factorey it doesn't mean pre-trimmed! Flight sims are brilliant for practicing, and if you dont fancy spending 100 or whatever it costs on reflex and co. you could try downlaoding FMS (type it into google) or try http://n.ethz.ch/~mmoeller/fms/index_e.html. A word of warning though: I have doubts about the acuracy of the thing, but its free, and you can download more models if you want to, but you have to find them first! Is also probably worth bying as sim controller. I got mine here.

Thread: cheap lipos?
29/02/2008 21:30:00
Try a) ebay - though I spose you cant always trust it b) the robotbirds.com (if thats the right web adress off the top of my head) lpl (low price lipo) range. c) giantcod.com (or .co.uk or something) d) vislero lipo availible through Sussex model centre e) zippy lipo range availible from brc hobbies f) electrolight lipo range from Modelpower I've never actually tried any of these lipos, except the electrolights, but I spose in lipos you probably get what you pay for! hope this helps!
Thread: help on how to solder deans connecters
29/02/2008 19:39:00
I am building my first rc plane (a ultrafly tutor 32e) and am using deans connecter. How exacterly should I go about it? I thing the way to do it is to hold the butt of the wire against the pin or whatevery you would call it and go textbook, but am worried that this might melt the plastic bit of the connecter! Any help really (lots of times) is appreciated! Thank!
Thread: Help tracking down a battery

Not being any kind of expert on the matter, surely the thing to do is to get more then one NiCad pack, take it apart and rebuild it with some of the cells in parralel? I dont see why not, so it mystifies me to see that no one else has surgested it yot... Hope you work something out eventually, and I'me jealoug of the plane (though I've only done sim's for now).
