Two of my favorites are:

"SARCASM. Just one more service I offer"

"You have been given dominion over the animals except, of course, the cats."

I'm sure Chris can relate with that second one.

Regarding Bobby's comment about not being able to program a Graupner telemetry ESC without a Graupner radio, OpenHobby sells a Graupner programming box for $25.

Maybe what I meant to say didn't come out correctly.

To my understanding you can only use their telemetry ESCs with Graupner systems.

You cannot program ESC or Gyro settings without being connected to the receiver. Meaning your aircraft must be "live" while adjusting. Not something you can sit and play with. On helis I try to keep the motor wires exposed to easily unplug, but that is more difficult on planes when the motor wires are behind a cowl.

Bobby, when you access the user setting on the ESC the throttle is disabled until you save your settings where the ESC initializes itself and stores your settings.

You can use our ESC's with any radio but you would use the telemetry and you will need an external programming box.

Nevertheless I would always take the prop off the plane under any condition when having a model on the bench. Bench takeoffs can look very ugly.

Hi guys.

During this show it was mentioned that Alex's PID explanation was originally posted in this forum, but I can't find it. Can someone link me up? I thought it was a really helpful synopsis and would like to refer to it again

Cheers, Michael.
