I spent some time examining and looking at my mill. This is a beast of a machine. I learned today what most knobs and levers are for. Some of them I've never really looked at.

Next project underway. With how tight it is getting a pair of 6S packs in there to make the 12S setup I'm going to sell the XPWR setup and go with the new T-motor setup that is designed to be 6S. So anyone need a XPWR 30cc with standoffs and Castle ESC?

I figured out my tv password today! Tried for a year or 2 to reconnect to the (wrong) network but always gave up and just used my phone. This tv had to remember what to do.......

Ok thought this would be the best place to ask.
Fixing a plane again and trying to decide how the run the overflow pipe off the gas tank down through the bottom of the fuselage.
Ok the question is do I face the pipe straight down. Or
Face the out let of the pipe towards the back. Or
Face the out let of the pipe towards the front.
I can give you a good reason for all three why it should or should not be done. Would like to know your thoughts.
A. Towards the back the air streaming by can siphon the fuel from the tank ?
B. Towards the front the air can pressurize the tank. ?
C. Straight down don’t know what it will do the tank.?
Be interested to hear your thoughts.

Wherever there’s a solid surface to drill a hole through is where I’d put it. Just don’t kink the hose and it will work just fine. Leave it hang out about an inch or two. No rocket science involved. Just a place for the fuel to go besides inside the fuselage when it overflows while filling the tank.
