I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

You could always swap the RX out for a Tupperware one Bri, the problem is that the smallest tupperware receiver weighs as much as the entire model Wink

Bri, if it works on a DSM, I have a TX here which you are welcome to have (comes with CX2 helis), which save you on spending a small for fortune on top of the line TX like a spectrum Laughing

Does the UMX Extra need expo ? some say it does or would dual rates do the job. I can get a DX5 for around £40 but it has no expo only dual rates. Thanks for the offer of the T/X Zaid but I don't want to introduce bad habits into my flying like mode 2 Suspect

You need as much movement as you can get indoors, then expo to soften the centres.

So yes you need expo not dual rates, don't fall into the trap that reduced rates are better indoors, it'll have the floor written all over it.

Thanks for that Rich, I suspected that was the case, I'll probably give it a miss.

As Rich said, you need to use all the throw availible really particualy on the small stuff, with a good dose of expo!, The extra i have the ali's rated down but thats because i dont like a fast roll but everything else maxed out!

Ali 75% rate 30% expo
Rud 125% rate 40% expo
Ele 125% rate 45% expo

I thought you weren't supposed to overdrive the servos with more than 100% on the spekky BNF stuff

I know that because I have done it, then I read the instructions & it says do not go over 100% so I didn't, just a thought it was

Found a place Stateside that does a Futaba to Spektrum module for $45 but it's the old story of do you take the risk on carriage and possible import duties and all the rest +VAT etc http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=5693

Bri, just a thought, but if you got it with the RX, there are more than a few Spekky users on here that would buy it off you Wink
