Redbeard, yours should get posted in the Minium conversions thread at RCG. This one is a cool mod as well (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=798163), but I really like your twin.

I lost one to a thermal whiletesting the range (quite long range, where I live), and it had over 20 hours of air time when it went away. None of the batteries have gone bad. The motor's gearbox may...

Update: Using the inner hole on the elevator horn makes the model pretty sensitive, but it will loop like mad - really tight loops, too. The second hole from the hinge gives much smoother control.
