Bad Habu!!!! No Electrons For You!!!!!!!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
So yesterday I was flying my Habu, I was pulling out of a 1/2 reverse cuban 8 when I had NOTHING...... It executed 3 perfect loops and then fortunately I regained control.
When I landed, the receiver LED was blinking. So I did a bind again and all was fine, but I wondered what happened.
So in messing around with the wires here and there, I found the switch to be faulty. The downside, the motor does not shut off (at least on mine) should the receiver power turn off!!!!!
So, I figured why the heck do I need a receiver switch anyway? So I cut the wires to the switch. Obviously the switch is designed to fail in the on position as if the 2 wires connect (complete the circuit) that shuts the receiver off. So all I had to do was cut the switch off, then I put some heat shrink on the end of the wires and problem solved.
Just something for you Habu owners to check on your jets, it's a very helpless feeling when your airplane is flying and you have no control!

Re: Bad Habu!!!! No Electrons For You!!!!!!!

I guess you got horseshoes Jeremy. usually when something like that fails- it never corrects itself before impact

While a switch is usually not likely to fail (usually!) Sometimes I wonder about all the fancy gadgets that people are trying to sell me - saw one in Toledo where you can turn on and off your RX with an electronic relay- I thought to myself "something else in the circuit that can fail..." and I kept right on walking... Sometimes less is more...
