If the aileron servos are Hitec digitals they could have been programmed for centre and end points....

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

My main runway is as long as CRAMS, but not quite as wide. The servos on the ailerons are HiTec digitals. I ran a test by putting my amp meter in line and checked each control surface individually. At the centre position all surfaces showed .1 amp draw. Even the gang of three on the rudder (these 3 are run into a matchbox). Wasn't any excessive humming....

I am not going to spend much time on those lights, for IMAC I wanna be stealthy!!!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I was outfitted with a specialty item when I opted to go farming (I think I got mine at birth), a real decent BS filter!

Sadly there no tunnel in this plane either, so no shiny pipes for me. I sure wish I'd have implemented Dale's lesson #3 -"always use 2 switches on the Rx of anything you care about." Lots has changed in the electronics department since I started 3 years ago, power-safe high voltage receivers ..... telemetry.

Found a couple 6V NiMH batteries and a 4.8V in the fuse. Research shows that the lighting system operates on 4.8. Don't see where the small 6V went to, and if the large 6V is any good, it might get used to operate the ignition.

I read some reviews on this ole plane, and a thought came to mind. It needs to be "Brum-Brumanized"! There are brackets here and there for who-knows-what, did the manufacturer put 'em in or did the previous owner? Like I say he was involved in FPV, that probably explains the wing tip that is buggered. They sent the wounded pieces home with me too).

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

In a nutshell, yes! But I don't intend on using it for FPV, that was the other guys thing.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

If it is at all wet sitting on a plastic stool would be an unpleasant experience!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Wish I could go do that, we had an inch of rain in less than 45 minutes yesterday, and the fog only burned off an hour ago.

So here is a question for the educated DA user, say ~2009 version of the DA150, what voltage is safe to run the ignition on. There isn't anything on the module saying anything. The reference material on DA's web site says 6V, but that could be an up-dated #?
