    Hi Arnie,

    I am in Auckland - been here for 8 years. Prior to that I was in Christchurch. We were there right through the earthquakes. Glad to get out of there.

    I'm not too far away from maidening my Spit. Just need to put the top clearcoat-on, finish programming the transmitter, and soldering the EC5 connectors on my batteries.

    Cheers
    Not surprised that you left CHCH behind for the north. Has the Auck lived up to your expectations?

    I haven't bothered with clear coating my spit. Haven't had any problem with the transfers, except the water slide ones. I made sure that the surfaces were cleaned with an alcohol solution (meths) before adhesion. Has worked well with the stock transfers and the ones from Callie.

    Good luck with the maiden.

            Sure you can Jerry...........but don't hold off, as our little paradise is fast becoming a Nanny State.

            AND.............. be sure to bring plenty of high quality low priced lipos with you.........

                  Hi Hardway , I was in Port Galveston, but then I was young. It would be harder today, but anyway thanks a lot on friendship.

                  • I'm writing with my ''duty'' to our forum, because I know you've all done it all here, on the Spitfire 1600, including the maiden, but I have to report to my dear friend Elbee and of course all others, and, by the way, I have one question ... I'm going in order:
                    Replaced the white plastic clevis with a double red ... this is reliable.Centered and tested the elevator and rudder , set up a throttle with a Futaba protocol (reverse servo 3 etc).I finally burned the white led (on the back of the fuselage ( behind the cockpit white led), by my fault I plugged it into RX 4.8 V .... Do you know what voltage is operational?
                    Cheers and all the best to family Thomas..... thanks for yout time.

                      Jos, I did the exact same thing. It is 3.2volt - 3.4 volt. I bought a package of 10 units of White10,000-15,000 K brightness on eBay for $3 or $4 USD. I will send the URL to you when I find it. Great to hear from you, Jos. Give our love to your family. Best, Steve

                      • Does the blue box lower the voltage from the battery? I assume so

                        • @ Hi Elbee , Thanks a lot ,all clear Cheers.

                          @ Hi Thisguy65 ,I'm telling you when I try, though there are experts who already know this.

                            TG65, Yeppers, it do. I have blown out several of the LEDs hooking those directly to the servo tester. I believe that some blue box outputs for the lights might have differing voltages as well. Now, where's that voltmeter? Best, LB
