  1. You know I rarely see anyone doing one. Many ask what are you doing! I've done many this year, first time out was flying with new firmware (FrSky V1 to V2) on both the transmitter and receiver, engine off/engine on. Then the new Taranis 2019 SE with old ACCST receivers, then with the ACCESS receivers, and finally with new RX8R PRO receiver, I've only had three or four flights this year that didn't start with a range check. Next time out will be with the Champ so another test is in order. I always check a new installation or new equipment, never do after passing the original test though.
    I did change the speaker and the sound is better and reconfigured the radio so that the volume control is same as my old radio, for some reason the left slider worked backwards so the signal is now inverted, pushing the slider up increases the volume. Maybe setting the volume to a fixed setting would be a better solution?
    Still studying the plans, the more I look the more I think a short kit is in order. The span is 10" larger than the previous model
    Snoopy1 and WMcNabb like this.
  2. I am the president of our club. It was written in the club rules long before I joined that a range check must be done be fore each flying session. I always do it on a new install but do not really see the point after that. But being what I am to the club I always do it.

    What a beautiful story and airplane - with a tragic ending though. That is zero fun right there. Sorry man.
