Not really time wasted however, I learned a few things, and stayed in the shop instead of working on the "honey do" list.
Hope the sky is good for your Big Bird event.
Hey if you have something over 80 inch wingspan or Imac qualified why not head down. Yup we are always learning ; even me after being in this hobby for over 35 years.

the caps need to be as close to the ESC input as possible.
