Re: Setting up a twin

Yes Steve I read the articles and knew about the capacitors but tried it anyway and it worked. I added about 12 inch to the wires. Maybe I was lucky.

Re: Setting up a twin

I can't see why you should not extend the battery wires, I did it on a mosquito with no problems. Lipo were in the fuz with escs and motors in the nacelles.

Re: DLE 55RA Silencing

I found 2 closely fitting lengths of Ali tube that would push into the outlets, then drilled about 6 holes in each one in the part that would be in the silencer body, pushed them in and secured with a cross bolt. Took about 10 mins and took most of the cackle out.

Re: ferrite rings

Before going down the ferrite ring route I would check the plug lead for earth continuity, I have found in the past that any break in this area will give rise to Miss fires and radio glitches even on 2.4

Re: New to brushless

Multi blade prop sizing

If an engine normally uses a 24x12 2 blade prop, what size blades would be needed if using 4, 6 or 8 blades, any ideas?
