Thread: Why the saddening blow to my fms mustang?
22/07/2011 13:12:50
no more news but i did by myself another one and added some weight up front so its slightly nose heavy but have not took it out as yet , anyone know how the retracts will do as they are operated by a servo rather than worm driven ?

Thread: DSMX transmitter recall

how would i know if my dx6i is dsmx because all i can see on the left hand side of the screen is dsm2 , i take it mine does not need to go back ?

the reason i say is because i was flying my fms mustang a couple of weeks ago on its maiden and it nose dived straight in to the ground and is now beyond repair because i lost control of the elevator and then i would regain control and then lose it again ,anyone thinks that they may replace my plane as it was brand new ?

could this type of hold behaviour cause a plane to crash ie nose dive ?

does anyone know of a pretty good warbird i can get and perhaps use the old parts off mustang or do you all think i should get another one ?

the tx aerial was positioned diagonally and the rx was installed very well with double sided velcro tape to hold it in position as for both aerial wires they were both located well so nothing to interfear with them , i should be able to get the video on for tuesday/wednesday as me and the other half are having our broadband fitted

well the c/g was double checked before take off and when taking a wide turn it was almost full throttle .

i will get the video on as soon as i can for you all to see and no laughing at my facial expression after the crash .

my gut feeling is either receiver or servo plus apparently there have been some issues with some of the spektrum ar500 receivers , and it was strange because at times it was ok turning and other times i would start to bank round and thats when it would start to go down but 3 times i managed to pull out of the nose dive because one minute the elevator would not respond hence the nose dive and the next it would kick back in and up i go again .

well i have been flying rc planes for the last 2 years and i have got a wot 4 foam e , st model blaze , art tech jetiger and a graupner gf-15 also started to fly helis as i have got a blade 120sr so you could say i have a little bit of experience i hope this helps you all knowing a little more about me .
09/06/2011 11:26:45
hmmm seems like a plan as o have got a few more receivers i will give it a go , any ideas on what you think it could be ? thanks
09/06/2011 09:30:58
yes done all my range checks and everything appeared to be fine with throttle on an off i just cant work it out and it has majorly wound me up , the model shop came to that conclusion from watching the video as well , who knows all i know is it looks like i will have to falk out for a new one

On thursday the 2nd of june I decided to take my big fms mustang for its maiden flight using a spektrum dx6i and a ar500 receiver , lets see it was about 8:30 in the evening sun shinning and a gentle breeze throttled her up and off she leaving the ground nicely got the landing gear up and banked round thats when issues were made apparent it appeared that there was an issue either with the servo or receiver because suddenly the plane would start to descend into a nose dive and it took quite a few wiggles down on my elevator stick to get her back up as the plane was not responding to the controls given this happened 3 times then I said to my other half I have go to bring it down because something is seriously wrong and thats when it happened landing gear down ready for a nice landing and dow it went again this time straight into the ground as you can all imagine i was mighty annoyed and a tear almost came to my eye a brand new plane compleately rit off i was horrified , anyway took what was left of it down to my local rc shop and they told me it was the receiver so i phoned spektrum/horizon to see what they could do for me and what i got back was " we can replace the receiver for you " i thought to myself just a receiver is no good because i cant fly a receiver , and still now I have no idea on what to do about this , any help or advice would be great and i will see if i can get the video of the whole 2min7secs of flying gltching and crashing on here , Matty
