PostSubject: Near Fatal Mistake (for heli)   Thu May 21, 2009 8:27 am

This morning I decided I would run a batt thru both my HBFP (stock tx) and my Belt CP (also stock tx) before if left for work. Went out with the Belt and had a great flight. No problem. Took it back into the house and got the HBFP and took it outside. Powered up the tx and plugged in the heli. Imediately the servos started twitching badly and the heli tried to spool up a couple of times. Luckily it didn't go to full throttle and I had hold of it by the skids. I thought my 4 in 1 had gone bad or something. Just couldn't figure out what was going on. Then it hit me. To my horror I realized I still was using the Belt tx. orange43 Unplugged the heli real quick. WHEW!!! Went in, got the right tx and ended up having a great flight. Guess the good Lord was looking out for this dummy.

Moral of story, no matter how long you do this, you have to be on your toes all the time. It is so easy to make a simple mistake that can be catastrophic. Bad enough to crash and damage your heli because of your flying skills, but much, much worse to do it because of a dumb mistake. old

Donnie I can relate to that. I have three E-Sky transmitters, two 4 channel and one 6. What I have come up with to lessen the chance of grabbing the wrong tx is put the channel number on the heli and transmitter orange74

I hope this is a help.

Well, if I can ever get this charger/battery problem figured out I'm gonna be able to finish my ES 600 and get it on my DX6i and then convert my Belt CP to the DX6i as well. Then I'll only have the HBFP tx and the DX6i. That will att least simplify matters.

But until I figure out my problem, I'm at a brick wall. angry032
