    For the L-39 or something else?

    BTW we got three L-39's in the club Ron. I just went over 3 hours on mine.

        if you need anything 3D printed message me. I have a CR-10s. I only have PLA for material but I would be more than happy to help you get the parts you need.

          I can print you the nose strut support for the L-39 in ABS. Just let me know if you are interested.

            If you would be able to print me one for my new L-39 I'd very much appreciate it and be willing to pay for it.

                Steve, there a a few different items on thingverse that I have been trying to find someone to print for various planes. Is this something you could do? Obviously willing to pay for all items, I just can't seem to find someone with a printer!

                  I could certainly give it a go for you. Just PM me.

                    Got my gun pod today , Thank you !

                      We have tested every board we replaced and so far we have yet to find a bad one. The plane comes out of the box with the landing gear in the up position. I think the board is thrown out of sync when the plane is powered up for the very first time while the radio has the gear switch in the down position but the plane has the gear in the up position. Once it is brought back in sync via the above process, it appears to stay in sync. This is a new board for all of us. In the past, every new plane would receive a new control board. At this point, every new plane will either use this same MCB-E or the MCB-D so all of us will not have to lead a new control board for every new plane. We'll likely go back and swap these boards into existing planes and phase out the one off control boards.
                      Even after following the oft reposted procedure for re-syncing the gear sequence, I have still not been able to make mine work properly. So I have carried out some experiments using a stabilised power supply, and have discovered that the box only works correctly (i.e. nose gear steering only works with the gear down) when the input voltage is 4.7 to 5.0 volts. As soon as the voltage goes above 5.0, strange things start to happen with the nose gear steering and rudder outputs. I have 2 of the boxes, and was able to replicate these results on both. The effects of higher voltage input are different in each box, but both will only work correctly with 5.0 volts input. To me, this means that something in the box is very voltage sensitive when perhaps it shouldn’t be?
                      I have used a y lead on the rudder output to bypass the box, so for me, this is not a major issue, but hopefully my experiments may help to identify the source of the problem.
                      Would anybody else who has had this problem like to try my experiment for themselves, and see if it works for them?

                      regards,
                      Dave

                      • Thanks MRC for sharing the cockpit files. I don’t even have this plane yet and I’ve already detailed my cockpit and ordered my batteries. I can’t wait until the L39 is back in stock.

                        • Maidened my L-39 today and it flies great! 4 nice uneventful flights. A keeper!

                            • I assembled mine yesterday. It was really fun and everything fits perfect.
                              Unfortunately the left Elevator servo has an issue, it works not smooth. It “jumps” step by step to the positions. Verified without the board by a direct connection to a servo tester.
                              I already opened a case for this, hopefully they solve it as fast as they solved my ticket for the missing gun pod ...

                                I had this same problem which I solved by changing receivers.

                                • Hello guys, can anybody tell me, where the eagle a3 gyro may be positioned? Has it to sit just in the roll axis or may it sit aside ? The manual says nothing about that and i'm not sure. How far may it be in front of the cg ? I've surching a picture here for your solutions but no luck. Thanks a lot for answering,
                                  regards,
                                  Rudi

                                    My rudder servo did the same thing. Replaced with a hitec and all is good.
