Is the amp draw less in with the plane in the air?

My poor Spit developed a split on both sides of the fuselage from the hole for the pilot down to the wing fillets. I didn't notice it at the...

I have been running the Turnigy 1100 and 1400 on my 35oz Super Cub, and this test data is dead on for the real world flight testing I've experience.

I'm looking for good thrust with decent...

Ailerons not required. When I first installed my Spektrum and brushless motor on my SC, I did not have my aileron wing finished, and I flew it a few weeks until I overstressed the wing and...

Joe,

Sorry you had the bad fortune, but at least you walked away from the crash, right?. The Spit can fly again, even if you need a new fuselage and maybe a wing.

I'm thinking you have...

Joe,

I hope you having your buddy throw it for you? Make sure to train him in the proper launch. I'd go full throttle and have him toss it about 45 degrees like DH said. This is bad for the...

It seems most people put a carbon fiber spar in the top of each wing. I made mine cross in the middle, and glued them together with epoxy.

I think the correct RC term is "armed" not "hot". When you plug in the battery on a plane with a DX6i, the throttle stick must be in the full off position, or the ESC will not "arm" the motor. On...

What I did was plug the battery onto the plane, and started playing with the radio. The throttle stick was in the down or off position. My ailerons were backwards, so I jumped into the reverse...

Joeted,

The programming cards are simple to use. You plug the battery onto the esc, and plug the small wire that goes from the ESC to the receiver into the programming card instead. LED lights...

Joeted,

BEC = battery eliminator circut. On gas powered planes, you have to have a small battery just to run the receiver and servos. You could use the same set up on elecric aircraft, but...

Sorry for confusing you! The AR6200 receiver that comes with the new DX6i is a full range receiver, not just for park flyers. It is more expensive and considered a better receiver than the AR6100. ...

Can't go wrong with the DX6i, and the AR6200 RX that comes with it will work fine in the Spit, you just have to find a spot for the small remote receiver unit. Probably mount it on velcro under the...
