Trying to wire my receiver but am running into some problems, the receiver is a 4 channel dynam radio, left over from the sky hawk. While trying to figure the correct combination (its been a while since i've done this) and was making progress, however i couldn't figure out what channel the throttle needs to be plugged into. Up to that point i hadn't plugged in the ailerons (with y connector), when i plugged it in the all the servos started shuttering. Unplugging the ailerons didn't fix the problem, i'm just worried that i may have fried something. Anyone got an idea what i'm doing wrong?

all is well now, i unplugged everything, took a break, and came back a bit later. Plugged it back in and with a little more adjusting i got it working fine. Going to go through all the glue seams and make any repairs from its time in storage, then on the next clear day i'll be out in the field.

no one is going to believe this but i took my plane out flying today and the mega jet motor v2 definetly solved my power problem, however while flying it i noticed it has no glide and was very twitchy. I really needed to put dual rates on it but didn't have the option on my radio so i just kept flying. A minute later i noticed an eagle flying above my airplane but was to busy just trying to keep my plane in the air. Then the eagle just dived and smacked my plane on the right wing, nearly snapped it in half and sent it tumbling to the ground. How's that for a day of flying.

Not a bad way to go at all!

It hard to fry a receiver like that, so you should have no worries.

maybe you could help me with another power set up i have, its hasn't worked right recently and have been fed up with it so i just put it aside. I have a new esc (18amp) with the stock motor from the hawk sky, when plug in the battery i can set the throttle limits fine. If i start to give the motor power it the motor spins but only to about 40% power, any more than that and the motor cuts out, the esc seemed to get warm after only about a minute. There are quite a few soldering jobs so i think maybe i just have a bad connection along the line somewhere.

Sounds like the ESC is going into fail safe because you are drawing too much power through it, it's a protection feature. You may need a 20 or 30 amp ESC for that motor. What amp rating ESC was the motor using in the hawksky?

its been a while but if i remember right it was a 15 amp... that's why i got the 18, a little extra protection.
