    Thank you for sharing your videos and observations.1 Definitely some kind of servo gear train failure.

    FYI the servo with the white, black and red wires is the reversed version servo.

      Hey Tom, I have Steve's nose gear light housing too but haven't installed it yet. Which leds did you use on that? Two of the big 5w leds like what was on the original nose light or something else and did you put any kind of lense over the leds? Also, it looks to me like those two lights could easily be installed vertically,like the real deal, instead of horizontally. What's your take on that?

      • Just installed my AR7350. All control surface servos working fine but i cant get the esc to arm (or make a sound)

        does anyone have any ideas? Im running out of them!

          Plug it in and try to trim down the throttle and see what happens, or use the subtrim to trim it down.

            Vertically?

              • Hi Guys,
                im thinking of buying one of these and fitting a jetcat p20 turbine.
                Does anyone know of this being done so far?
                ive seen the vid of the kingtech k30 fitted at the rear, but I’d like to fit it internally.
                Would someone mind posting a pic of the internals where the Edf sits and possibly measures the rectangular outlet area?
                I would use a straight pipe, not a Y pipe.
                Many thanks

                    O.K. Thanks Tom. Being that they are just 1 watt each, I'll probably just go with some leds I pillaged from old foam carcases.

                      Check to make sure the polarity is correct on the throttle lead to the receiver.

                            Are you ailerons and elevators separately into the RX? I have the 9350 in mine, but I hate the fact that I can’t use all the mixing I want... I want tailerons and full wing flaps or crow. This is the same reason I sold my last 9350... I figured I would be able to program them this time around

                              Mmm- tried sub trim and regular trim- nothing- checked polarity at reciver and its correct. It appears a redish ligjt is blinking in 2 blink sections from the esc.

                              Everything else is working normally.

                              Humm

                                - Double check the polarity of the throttle lead into the throttle channel of the receiver, just in case. It’s easy to overlook. Also, check the wires of the throttle leads at the connector to make sure there isn’t a loose connection at the crimps.
                                - Ensure thay any mixes, throttle cut, etc. is not active when you don’t want it to be that may be inhibiting the ESC from arming.
                                - Rebind the receiver
                                - See if the ESC’s throttle calibration needs to be done first prior to it initially arming. Sometimes weird stuff like this occurs. Are you familiar with how to calibrate the throttle on these ESC’s? If not, we can help without issue. It’s a very quick process.

                                • Everything correct. Did a re bind. Same result. Im not familiar with esc calibration...

                                  • If its the process of turning on the transmitter in the full throttle position and waiting for beeps-i have tried that- haha

                                        That’s likely your issue. If memory serves correctly, the HV ESC needs a minimum of 5S.
