Well very well could be me but looks like I sadly may have an issue with my esc. It'll operate the servos however I get no audible tones when I power it up even after resetting the throttle calibration a couple of times. Fully charged and balanced battery. Anyone have any ideas?

On the plus side I bought it...

is there anyway to make the throttle just alil bit more sensitive on my dx8? when i was trying to hover today, finger pinch'n, it seemed like i had to move the throttle alot to increase throttle. i guess you call it throttle travel on the Tx. now if i used just thumbs on the left stick, it didnt seem as bad....

I recently acquired a used FB 3DHS 89 slick. I've gotten everything set-up, and have had about 5 flights on it so far. The first two were a bit hairy, as I lost a wheel each time. Both were pretty successful though, you can check out the 89 slick thread for more info. But on to my question. When setting up the...

Before I start, let me just say that the methods I describe in here are what work for me and make the most sense to me. There is more than one answer to most technical questions, so I’m not saying that the methods I describe are the only way to do things. If you take issue with what I am saying then please, let...

I'm trying to come up with a common power/electronics setup for the 71" Slick, 72" Extra, 74" Edge and Bigfoot. Is this possible?

I prefer the efficiency and power of 8S however I do have a few 6S 5000 packs.

Currently have a PA extra 260 48" but lookin to get a 58" 3Der to throw around. which would be better? personal experience?

I like the precision and tracking of the slick but don't know how an extra mx compares? difference in weight/flight characteristics?

Well i guess to start off i have been flying for about 5 years and im looking to get my first balsa plane. What im looking for is something that is very forgiving so it makes me feel more relaxed jumping into balsa. The main criteria im looking for is a bird that runs off of 3s but if there is something that any of...

[H=1]Description of the maneuver[/H] A Pop Top is closely related to a [wiki=The Blender]blender[/wiki], but is performed in an up-line rather than a dive. It's essentially a vertical snap roll, followed by one or more turns of flat spin. Although the Pop Top is a manuever simple enough that a beginner can...
