    Bill, I started a post, trying to warn people about using Lipo's in an old Tx designed for Ni/cd. It has gone to a pissing match not what I intended.


    Thank you, Dave Robinson

    Please look into this....:

    [QUOTE=hayofstacks;999347]I have Pizanno ignored, but I can already tell exactly who you are talking about. Don't worry, you won't be the first, or last to be harassed by him. Many people have complained and left the forums over him. He even got banned from rcgroups at one point, and that is hard to do.[/QUOTE]

    It's a lie.....!

    have you ever heard of not being able to use servo reversers on Spectrum radios because they cause interference???
    sorry to bother you but nobody else seems to know if this is true or not.

    Hi Bill
    One day, I will actually write stuff down! I'm after the names of two of the night fliers at EOT. One had a large foam soarer covered in lights, the other was flying an UZI biplane.

    Should have paid more attention, my apologies - I had Sue holed up in the car, after getting bug-bitten and I was doing as much scratching bites as anything else.

    We need to really push that night fly if you have it next year. It was great to do it again, and your site is ideal - no background lighting from 'civilisation' to distract pilots and no trees to run into. Will investigate serious lighting if we can make it next year!

    Thought I had you in my regular email address book, but seems not - my home email is dereckw@comcast.net , if you can help me out with the above.

    Is your Spektrun DX7 still available? Would you take $150 for it? I was looking for a DX6i but I am very interested.

    Seems your forum is getting hammered with spam. Good luck keeping it under control.
