If your charge light blinks for a short while after plugging in then the charger will handle a larger mah battery, I found that out via another forum...........

Yes, that's correct Chris. I think that one would have taken me a month of Sunday's to work out. smiley smiley

24/02/2014 20:01:36

That's the one, thanks Chris

I've spent ages trying to figure that out.................

Chris, I only did the AIL channel on the 3 position switch this time

24/02/2014 19:06:40

I have deleted all the settings so I will make up some more and double check that all have different switch position and different values.......

Hi Chris

Yes that's the same layout that I made & I even tried with the values around both ways IE high with switch in the up position & around the other way, but with no luck

I have been playing around with my Taranis today setting up a new model and thought I would make use of the 3 position switch ( SA ) and 3 sets of rates. After making the 3 sets of rates up on c9x and checking on the simulator I find that only 2 work with ''SA'' in the down position its the same as when its in the middle position. What am I doing wrong ???

Canopies & cowls are the job's that I hate doing, so easy to mess up, and look really bad if not done correctly.

I have been using a Frsky module in a 8u futaba radio for 3/4 years now, & never had any problems. With the Taranis I can still use all of my older RX's, just put one of their JDT module's in the back. I will say that the programing is different but I am getting there slowly, & with the price of the RX's from £13 to about £26 I can see no point of using anything else...............

Thanks Chris, custom functions is a section that I have not ventured in to yet, mainly due to the fact that I don't really understand what they are used for. Just waiting for some decent weather to try out the new radio now...........

I've had my Taranis for 2 weeks now and have been setting up models indoors with a few RX's and servo's and learning how to navigate my way around. I want to set up the instant trim function but can not see how to do this , can some one explain how it's done.

Thread: Shed nearly flooded
24/12/2013 11:31:26

Just looked out from the bedroom window, a few fence panels down but not mine. Next door's tree is leaning over about 20 degrees from the vertical & my shed looks OK, well the felt is still on anyway. A small amount of rain got in through the door from the gap at the top ( door to frame )

Thread: 54" Electric Bronco

Hi Steve

I was thinking about fitting rudders but changed my mind as I could only see the answer would be twin servos at the rear end and that would have put a lot if weight down there even if I used micro 5-9g units. Retracts ? well all I see with them are people having lots of trouble, units that wont rise or looking at plane that is being thrown all around to make the other leg drop. But a plane fitted with good units dose look right, I might even try a set of electric retracts one day!! The only mod's that I did were to sheet the under side of the wing but could have done the top as well, I found that the wing was very flexible with out this. Also I increased the thickness of the wood on the fuz to 3/32 & put the same on one of the vertical sides of both booms & a steerable nose wheel. The only other thing I wished I had done would be to hide the elevator push rod into the boom and put more detail in the cockpit. Due to an error on my part, by putting under powered motors in I have not had this plane flying yet, and I have a back log on the bench so it will not see an upgrade on the motors for a while.

Regards Jan...........

Hello Tedebear

This is the one you are talking about


Thread: how many hours?
28/10/2013 13:29:19

TB, if I'm having a long session in the shed, all you have to do is pop back indoors every hour and offer to make coffee/tee ect ect, well it works for me..........

Having worked since I left school at 16 & a large portion of that time was spent working 6-7 days a week, 2 years ago I decided to go into semi retirement and work 3 days a week now, so my shed time has increased. I pretty much spend any length of time in there now, when ever I want, as I said in an earlier post every evening when the soap's are on. As long as I do the regular duties not much gets said about shed time..........

27/10/2013 11:55:53

Not excessive in my opinion,I think you could spend a few more hours in the shed......

27/10/2013 10:46:56

Ernie, how many hours do you spend in the shed?? we need a base line to work from !!

I spend at least ( minimum ) 2.5Hr a day after dinner when the soaps are on the box but if the weather is bad then the time spent in the shed would be nearer 6-7Hr. And even more time in the winter months..........

Thread: Mooney 201
23/10/2013 00:03:11

I'm just starting to build the Cambrain Mooney and cannot decide what engine to put in it, my choices are:- SC40 2s@ 479g, OS48 surpass @408g or RCV 58cd @537g. My first choice would be the RCV 58cd but I'm worried about the weight 2nd choice will be the OS48 but I am wondering if it would have enough power, 3 choice will be the SC40 but I would rather fit a 4 stroke engine. Average weight should be around 5lb 6oz according to Cambrain web site. Any suggestions ??
