Re: elec glider question ?

.1800 used. You payed too much---Just kidding, couldn't help it. The gains adjust your throttle settings. Put your throttle stick to the bottom with power connected. If you turn the lo gain one way the power will start to come on. Back it off so it turns off and then go a bit more so it wont glitch on in flight . The hi end sometimes has an LED to indicate full power. Same idea, adjust till full power is reached.Try your 2S lipo first, most set-ups of that day were 6-7 cell Nicad packs. A cheap outrunner/ESC wouldn't run you much if you fry it on 3S. A pic would be neat.

Doh, I need more friends like that Helibob1.

What Tree. Don't feel too bad about you're location. The hobby shops don't cater to the soaring end of the hobby much. If you want something nice or different, It has to be mail order from another vendor even with a great hobby wholesale on my doorstep .
