    Fiddy- I have the powerbox instructions I can scan them and send'em to ya, or you could call Duralite and ask them to email you some. The programmer isn't that hard if you've ever programmed anything else, OR have the screen.

    Anyway- powerboxes are good. Between the SF servo matching expanders like the EQ10 and the Powerbox they work about the same. Select a channel, which servo, and do the centers then at full deflection. Then you have to save your settings and move on to the next one.

    If you need a hand, or want cliff notes on the exact process let me know.

    It's been a while, i'd have to read the intructions,. It is really easy, though, I remember that much. Gotta take a Heli ride up the Feather river canyon this AM, so can't see if I've still got the instructions......

    Got some work done on the Giles today... Cleaned out the old hinge points, reglued a couple, and mounted the rudder once again... lost my covering iron, so I can't finish the covering yet.... Also, the new firewall is installed, I need to install the triangle stock and fuel proof.... pics of that when it's done...

    Thor, which Savox servos are you using these days? I may try to save a buck and not buy the 7955's for the Giles...

    The 2270hv are working well in the 91"Extra, but I think you can find 7955s cheaper. $89 if you buy four at Chief.
    Jitters come free.......
