    Well when test flying the Decathlon to see if everything is fixed and it is now. So the planes is ready to go. But as usual you find things out at the field that you did not anticipate. Standing and looking at the Decathlon all ready to go. But when at JoeNall you leave your plane in one piece all week, and if I did that I could not charge the plane all assembled. I did not want to pull the wings and struts of every day. So had to do something so that the batteries could be checked and charged with out removing the wings and struts. So that will have to be done before we leave.

    It took a while but I managed to rebuild a JR switch and charge jack switch. It can now switch the plane on and off and it is able to balance charge a 2cell LiPo battery. Took a little work had to modify the little printed circuit board and add an additional set of wires out the back of the switch to connect to the LiPo battery, done and it works great.

    Will be working on this as soon as it gets to the door in a couple of days. Who needs another engine to work on when the one you got works perfectly fine for a plane that won't get flown much anyway o_O. I thought my 6S fever was gone but it's a CAP 232 EX !!!
    My "Foam Hanger" is EX-panding :ooh?:.
