    Hi Nigel,

    Sorry for late reply, i've not been on the site much lately. I'm typically using a 3s battery of 2200mAh and a 1000Kv motor with 13" or 14" prop. Motor weight about 150g. 14" works the motor very hard but is just about ok with throttle management

    RE: So now I've swapped out the 2822 Emax 1100kv for a Turnigy 2830 1000kv ... this lets me fit the 11x5.5 prop instead of the 10x6.

    Is this the KV you have for all your Emax CF 2822 motors, or do you prefer another value for different planes. I have two of the CF 2822 800kv motors in satisfactory use right now (high wing trainer types), and would like to get a couple more but I'm wondering if there is a more all-around KV that I should consider.

    Enjoy your postings and comments, and keep up the good work. The pot needs to be stirred occasionally.

    Have you left it on charge for serious time ? Read the instructions ... first charge it needs to be left for ages ...
    Second the video records in timed segments ... so if you want to do a long recording. You will find a number of files on the card .. but they all join up perfectly in video editor ...
    But it sounds like you haven't given it that really long charge before use.

    Hey Nigel, I have the keychain cam now, but it stops recording after a couple minutes, what would cause that? Perhaps you have had similar issues with your cam, or the plural form rather, considering you have had a number of them.

    Hi cool guy,

    AGA Power(china battery manufacturer) just started a rc battery presentation, which gives our products freely to 50 flyers from all over the world. After submitting the flying feedback, 3 flyers will be lucky to enjoy our free rc batteries for one year.

    To get this opportunity, the flyer should provide us with:
     Information of his plane,
     The battery type
     His awarding history.
    Once you get it, no money should you pay in the whole sending process.

    Here we sincerely call for your active participation and friendly news spreading.
    Waiting for your attending.

    AGA Power Team

    Micros ? no idea actually ... I've always regarded smaller models as harder for learners to fly ...

    Some forums can be hard work as they forget that they once had to learn ! Me ? I'm a Brit and have to bite my lip sometimes at the USA style of writing ... no disrespect intended - just a different style.
    I frequent other forums mostly UK based as we tend to flock together. Brit forums are a bit more formal and less other stuff ... tend to to the point and a bit cold !!

    Anyway - glad you are getting the info you need. Just remember that not always what is said is best !! There's always room to experiment ....
