Cowlhead's 40% Extra 260

Showtime

How would you install the switches. What would turn the unit on and off. The unit powers up auto when it see power so i guess you could do this but the switch that the unit comes with is bad ass. Not that the fromeco are not good. But i like the digi switch.

I knew you were going to say that, I just have to patch the spot where the Fromeco switches are, and install the powerbox switch.

Made a little more progress. Now that I have the connectors I needed for the wings and stabs I can finish this project. I promise the next one won't take this long to complete. Here are a few shots of the connectors I am using.

Thanks Show I got those connectors from a website allelectronics.com They had them to me in like 2 days. BTW if anyone needs the multiplex connectors for the powerbox battery connectors you can order them on jetcats website. Also Airwild rocks, I placed an order not more than 30 min ago and they have already shipped it. Wow.

Those connectors look awfully bulky/heavy though, like something from a car radio installation kit. I prefer the Graupner/Multiplex six-prong connectors for a two-servo quick-connect connection, and Radio Shack sells some nice 9-pin connectors for a three-servo quick-connect connection (enough hyphens and repettitive words for ya).

Ron, why would I stop now? :exercise5:

Cowl, must be the pictures that make them look that way. :exercise:

I put another three flights on my 260 today, I really like it. I lowered rud to elev mix from 5% to 4% and it's still a little to much. I will probably put 1% rud to ail in next and see how it does. I have mine set up a little nose heavy though and with only about 35deg throw on elevators, so walls are "not so good" he he. But I really like it.

I need teflon couplers and clamps for my LL90k cans but I don't want to call AI up just to order that. Does any have some I can buy from them?
