Some updates. Changed to a 3" double offset arm on the rudder servo and added a 2nd HSB-9380TH with a 1.5" arm. This fixed all of my overly sensitive rudder issues and still gives enough throw for 3D. I am trying out a Jeti DPS40 magnetic electronic power switch, seems to be working well. If I have success with this then I'll use it on all of my airplanes forward.


Also changed to a Falcon 28x9.5 propeller, which pulled amazing with the DA120. But after only 4 flights with the new prop it delaminated! Luckily the engine was at idle and I was on final, glided in for a trouble free landing. It's going to be warrantied so no worries there. Thoroughly starting to enjoy this airplane otherwise.

Well sorry for being so quiet here the last 6 months, I've been busy!!!

To quickly get everyone up to speed:

The Pilot Edge and Yak went with me to the TriCities Huckfest at the end of August 2017.
The Pilot Edge and Yak went with me to the Spats Invitational mid October 2017.
The Pilot Edge and Yak were both sold to a buddy of mine around late November 2017.
An AJ Aircraft 105" Laser 230Z was procured early December 2017.

Attached are pictures.

Since my last visit here I've actually moved from customer service to sales at Hitec, which is why I haven't had much time on the forums. But enough about me.

Here's what's in the Laser:

DA120 engine
Falcon 28x9.5 prop
J&A compact mufflers
Hitec HSB-9380TH servos
Hitec HS-5565MH throttle
Pulse 2s 5000 rx packs
XPS X-24 Flight System (not a gyro!)
