Come on warmer weather!!! I am so tired of the cold...

Agile 7.2 build So I put Bob’s heli aside as I was waiting for a replacement tail output shaft, and started in on my new Agile 7.2 electric heli. This is one interesting heli, to say the least. At first glance, it looks as if there’s a coating on the carbon fiber, a wax coating? All the metal parts are machined nice and shiny or they’re anodized. It seems there are a lot of smaller baggies of screws, washers, grub screws, and...

DX7 Charging Notes:
