Nice build and pics Shaun - Thanks - what's the big cap for just above the V-Bar amp - is that part of the V-Bar system ?

It is the Spektrum voltage cap. Bascially it balances spikes both high and low on the power and ensures a more consistent voltage. They work very well at under 10 bucks. Several big plane foolz run them on high demand systems as well, JR and Futaba both sell them as well, Spektrums is the cheapest of course and does same thing, cheers. :wink:

Two more questions on those pictures:

1) is that two of the Spektrum satellite modules, one on the left servo bulge, and one also on the right, or are these two different stages with two different locations you tried?

2) On the left side, in addition to the Spektrum satellite, what's that other clear smoke plastic doohickey above the rudder servo?

John

EDIT: Now I see the "Spektrum AR9000 with dual antennas". Sorry.

The doohickey, lol on left side is the Antenna Frame hold, loss and voltage indicator. It is a handy little unit which gives you data right after flight to evaluate your antenna locations as well as you rx voltage etc.... It just plugs into the data port of the AR9000. I like the 9000 and the dual antennas, in comparison to the AR7000 it stepped up my range check from 36 paces to 79 so that was pretty huge imho. Maidened it today, wow is all I got to say. I have alot of tweaking to do as it was pitching up etc but still was pretty amazing on Vbar that is for sure.

I better start thinking of a paint scheme for mine since I don't want plain white and logos. Are you guys spraying a finishing gloss coat of some sort over the paint?

Do you think it adds extra strength compared to an unfinished canopy?
