my dream plane.

SHHHHHHH. DO not tell my boss........


I was able to arrange for the Old Dominion to not deliver to my house. Instead, I went and picked it up and then unloaded it when the boss went out to do some shopping.

This is what you get when you order the airplane:

very well packaged and two boxes.

One box is 82" long. this is the one that has the fuselage.

the other box has the wings.

The quality of the packing is very good and no damage.

Okay been flying 3d for 15 months, on my sixth plane
3rd PAU
Skywing Edge 60 inch
Pilot Extra 330sc
Aj Lazer

..been a hell of a journey this 3d flying...

The Plane specs
60 inch PAU supplied by CARF
Castle Talon 90 ESC
MKS HV 9767 Servos
Scorpion 540 kv 4020
4000 mAh nanotech LIPOS
Extra large 4 inch foam wheels for taking of on long wet grass fitted with pants...
16 x 7 Xoar prop or 15 x 8 prop
Has much rudder and elevator throw as I could make possible
The castle talon suffers from the connectors coming loose mid flight so I ended up using small silicone wire extension piece to allow a degree of flex and also found covering the connectors once installed with a strong silicone adhesive...this has been great, no disconnections since!!

What Expo's do folk use ?
I'm just in process of setting up a spektrum flight pack energy sensor, I've installed like the photo, had to resolder the negative wire 90 degrees and reroute through the box for a neat install...just waiting to receive a 12 inch long x-bus wire and I'll be good to go...
I'll also need to use some valuable Log file data to record what's the best landing flight pack mAh capacity to set the Low audible voice alerts...

A interesting side note..
I had a major near total loss crash after updating my DX9 to 2.06 software...
and had a email of SPEKTRUM a week later regarding the very update..
They said this...

Attention Spektrum owner,
Our records show that you recently updated your Spektrum DX radio to version 2.06. We are reaching out to make you aware of a potential issue with this recent update.
If using the Forward Programming feature with a AS3X/Safe stabilized systems including the AR637T, AR637TA and AR630 receivers, the AS3000 plug in module or the 6250HX helicopter flight controllers, in some cases incorrect stabilized control corrections can occur. If you updated to version 2.06 on your DX transmitters and use one of the above AS3X systems, we strongly encourage you login to your account and update to version 2.07.
We're sorry for any inconvenience. If you have questions, comments or concerns please feel free to message us directly via our support staff at

I do you use an AR637T Recieiver with forward programming too and it was great but I must admit since that update I ended up flying better with it off in really high winds which was unusual but I put it down to me being a relative novice at 3d...15 months and I can with some authority do rolling harriers so not to novice...but I still thought it's me.

Anyhow after a major crash maybe due to the operator but definitely not helped with the stabilizer from gyro being off!!..due to it not operating as normal.

Anyhow I mended the plane and went out again with stabilizer on only to find I was struggling to get it dialed in I even thought centre of gravity was off and changed all my expo settings and rates WHAT THE HECK???
and eventually had a another small crash creased the wing !!!!��

Up and till the update on the DX9 everything was great flew everyday at least 7 packs for the last month, so after receiving the above email it doesn't surprise me one bit...

What if any have any of you experienced with DX9 and the 2.06 software...???

Looking for a good battery charger 4 ports would be nice. But 2 ports would be sufficient. Looking to charge Li-Po. Lithium ion life batt.

Hello there, I'm Nick and I'm not very familiar with this but I recently came into a old mans collection of airplane parts. Motors, batteries, remote controls and broken missile tubes. I want to get rid of the items and I have no knowledge of what I have. I had a friend that use to be big in the sport for Circus Circus here in Las Vegas NV. He said I had a couple of motors that are worth something and others are just a common motor. I looked on ebay to compare but found very little like items.
I have: Atwood Fury .049
Radio -Spektrum DX8 fair to good condition
Cox .049: .020: 05.10 if that is anything
This is just what he was able to tell me what I had on the surface. Just wondering if someone with the knowledge of this stuff, I would love to pick your brain about all I have. It's not too much but I need money for rent and I've been lagging on getting this stuff out of my hair.
I would appreciate anyone's help on this subject. I'm going to attach a few pics of what I took pictures of so far.

Thank you Nick Telfer
928-919-6755 if easier to text me and I can shot a bunch of pictures or talk via zoom or facetime.
