Tore,
Are you referring to an Avitar? Like the photo under my username? You must size your photo to no larger than 80x80 or 9.8k. Go to the user CP at the top navigation bar and then to "edit avitar" to upload the photo. Hope this helps

Hello everybody...I came over from the "other side" on RCU. Great to see that electrics are getting their well earned, long deserved respect!! I started with a nitro trainer fixed wing then went to a nitro trainer heli. After a few years of getting kicked out of parks and discouraged by clubs, I went to electrics. WHAT A CHANGE! I fly when I want, where I want, safely and quietly. If Hybrid cars were only this much fun, I'd be off "fuel" forever.

I am new to electric helicopter flying. I just recently purchased a E-Flite CP blade and I am in the learning process of hovering. Have had a few crashes but I have also bought a E-SKY simulator and hope that it will help me in this learning process. I will be visiting this site to get info.

Marc,

I was looking at Greg C.'s webhanger when I noticed the link. This will be a fabulous site for me as I'm 100% electric... only wish I'd have found WattFlyer back in July.

Happy to find a place where someone can explain the difference between watts and volts to me. Just getting into brushless and LiPo but have flown electric with can motors and nicads for over 20 yrs. Current projected project will be BUSA Bristol M1c. Will be asking for help on the power system.

I have never posted before and am not sure if I am doing this right. Some of the articles I have read are very interesting. I have been flying Glo for several years and now have my first foamy in the air and two more on the work table. They sure don't fly the same as Glo.

Is that good or bad? I flew glow for a while but was never real good at tuning motors and got tired of dead stick landings immediately after take off.
