      The one and only time I had any gatoring out of the box was due to exposure to heat during transportation. Not a whole lot Motion can do to control where the container is located or how it is stored. This container also spent a lot of time sitting in the yard probably under full sun waiting for customs to do its thing. So not surprising there was some minor gatoring.
      You can check my post https://www.hobbysquawk.com/forum/rc...301#post388301 It explains why this "gatoring" is not caused by sitting on the ground at the US customs. It also explains how I narrow it down to sea transfer which MRC hires.

      Since MRC hired the carrier. Maybe they should choose a better freight company.

      While you got your B25 looking fairly decent, we did not. If you've checked my post 466. I think you would agree those are not minor gatoring.​

        Any luck tracking down a placement guide? In the same boat as you..

          Thanks LB

          Callie sent me a .PDF shortly after I requested it from her. She's the best!

              Attached is the PDF for the placement guide. It can be hard to read the small print, so start with the larger decals and work your way to the smaller ones be the process of elimination. B-25 Nomenclature.pdf

              • Finally was able to put my B-25 together. Applied the decals, 4 coats of minwax poly, setup with ar8360 receiver and using an NX10. Everything adjusted and checked out, decided to do some taxi tests outside the garage. All was good tracked straight, then on taxi back in the right motor started making noise, stopped turning and started beeping. Unplugged battery and carried in to workbench. Plugged back in, motor turned normally initially, THEN the magic smoke started pouring outa the nacelle. Immediately disconnected battery.
                Results after disassembly was the ESC completely fried, the wires to the motor disconnected from board, suspect the heat melted the solder. Motor looks ok and turns by hand, but is blackened not sure if something wrong internally or the heat or smoke from the esc did it.
                work ticket sent to motionRC, now I wait,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

                • Had same thing with mine while set up tx. This is third one that I have heard of. MRC took care of problem but have to wonder if all 3 ESC's where the same (50A wo/UBEC). All 3 were right motor/ESC. Good luck getting resolved.

                    All three incidents occurred during initial ground testing? Prior to any flight time?

                    • Mine did. never had throttle more than 30% Not sure on the other one. Pic's look same as yours

                      • Fast N Light Pulled the factory front tire off the stock wheel (same process as Ive done with the Freewing Mains), and mounted her on the narrow G-18 3DP front wheel. Got some nice flights in off grass with all three wheels now on the plane. Looks great, performs great, and holding up great. Printed with Bambu labs ASA filament.

                        A lot less expensive option than the Robart Tire. For about $10 get a set of replacement wheels from Motion RC and some dissection, glue and you are looking scale.

                            See my post #369. It happened to me, on bench setup, after 7 short flights. MRC (EU) did not recognize it was a faulty ESC because "they were not there to witness what happened" and I could not prove it was not my fault, so no warranty (despite the EU regulation explicitely mention the seller has to prove the faulty usage within the first 6 months). However, they provided me with a gift card. I could replace the motor, the ESC and plastic cover. But not the damaged nacelle (and I didn' t want to buy 2 nacelles when only one was impacted). The plane is ready to fly again but now I have one motor doing a strange noise at startup... like previously the right one before I got fire... Throttle stick is calibrated and both ESC too. I have to recheck one by one to identify which motor is noisy. In any case, next time I go flying, I will have an extinguisher ready too.
                            And I found why I could not setup the ESC... My receiver channel on which the "faulty" ESC was connected, died, I assume due the ESC incident as it was working perfectly before.

                              I had same problem with receiver channel. Both motors/ESC were replaced. Did taxi tests at full power other day and will do power test to see if ESC can handle power. Do not trust ESC's so will most likely change both to be on safe side.

                                  • Hi guys, I do fancy a B25, any of you fly off grass and how much does it slow down for landing as our club strip only around 50mtrs, Thanks

                                    Comment


                                    • Handles it well. Only issue is the props tend to cut grass if it is not a well-manicured field. No flaps it jumps up pretty quick. Take off flaps is even quicker. With full flaps during landing, it lands slow with little roll out.

                                        • This is by far the best B-25 ever to come out but why has this post dried up.
