Thread: Is this a speed controller problem?
04/09/2014 20:30:01

Nick, a friend of mine is having problems with his F4 Corsair. To be precise, when the throttle stick on his Spektrum DX6I is at the bottom, (low ) the motor does not turn...this is good,...the problem is that full revs on the motor is reached by the time the stick is in its center position, moving the stick from the center to full (up) there is no change in motor responce.

I thought that it may be a 'radio' problem, but it does not happen with the other two planes bound to his transmitter, they throttle in the way you would expect....leading me to think we need to look at the speed controller.

Any insights you have would be most welcome.

The plane is Dynam

Thread: New E-Flite Carbon Z Cub Assembly Log & Chat
03/07/2014 15:44:13

Hi David, I have flown the Carbon Z a good few times now and noted the pitch oscillation on each flight when above 3/4 throttle.

Further reading of the rx (9AR635) user guide suggests that I may be in the wrong flight mode. In preparation to change flight modes I decided to restore the AS3X gains back to 'factory configuration'

Upon following the instructions in the user guide to archive this, I find that that my red, green, and blue LED's continue to flash constantly, and at no time become solid as suggested.

Have you experienced this?

King regards

Thanks for the reply David, the AS3X being the possible culprit is interesting, I will scout around the net for more info,...certainly makes sense as it is noted on other airframes.

Finally got my Carbon Z yesterday evening so shot straight home with it and put it together. A very good build quality, everything going together well apart from the motor onto the bulk head. I found the screws very, very difficult to dive home, in fact I had to give them quite a bit of persuasion!!

All done in around the suggested three hour mark, and the first flight was earlier this evening, and what a first flight! I have never had one where no trim is needed!

The only thing of note was a slight 'flutter' of the tail plane and elevators at full chat. Back off the throttle to three quarters and no problems!

After that first flight I can understand why E-Flite put it under their 'Trainer' section!

I have a little bit of a newbie question here, I have got a charger that I really don't understand how to operate, even after reading the instructions many times. It is a 'Fusion Elysium Pro'.

Can any body tell me how to connect the battary (Art tech li po 1300mah, 11.1v, 3 cell), do I just connect by using the balance plug, or by the balance plug and the batt power lead?

Your advice will be much apreciated.

Hi Josip, Cheers!,...the beer was 'all grain' brewed to my own recipe and the bittering hops and the flavour hops where 'Citra', grown in Navada U.S.A.

As you can see from my pictures I need to spend more time building and flying, rather than brewing!

Kind regards

This is a strange one to me, but then again my experience is not great.

Two friends of mine have noticed that after flying their planes (Critical mass and a Husban motorized glider) that the motors on both planes seem to be harder to turn manually.

After cooling for a few hours things seem to go back to normal. I am at a loss to explain to them the reason for this. Is it possible that they are running the motors to hard?

Looking forward to your thoughts!

Thread: Ebay sellers...
06/04/2014 08:29:17

Hi guys, as an e-bay shop owner in the past you my find this interesting.

As a shop owner (on e bay) we have various fourums on e-bay to discuss selling stuff.

The proof of posting from the Post Office' won't save you at all. Many cases where seller has this and Ebay still force a refund to the customer. Some sellers say they think they are targeted by the same group of buyers!

I seem to have lost the text a little in the above post. I have noticed that quite a few of us modelers are also into astronomy, if you are one of them then try www.cloudynights.com

Thread: Why do I support my LMS

Roy, thanks for putting fingers to the key board! you and your shop sound like just the place that most of us would like to visit, it is obvious that you understand customer service because people such as "Crosstown Tee" are willing to travel large distances for your service.

Looking through this thread again it appears that a large group of people are reaching for the 'net because a significant number of shop owners don't understand that the important thing is 'service, service, service!'

Although I have not visited your shop I feel that if I was in your area I certainly would. Thank you for being there and making a difference.

Regards

mike
