Wired Words of Wisdom
There was an article in the AMA Park flyer magazine talking about possible issues with electric flight. Of course they are talking about R/C flight but much of that talk about applies to Electric free flight too. They cover the idiosyncrasies of ESCs and good practices in soldering connections.  A major difference is that in our (FF) case the ESC is controlled by a timer rather than R/C Tx and Rx . But most timers have analogous feature such as the ability to reverse servo/ESC travel and the concept of open and closed throttle.

Need a set of Vasi Mini-Bone F1H-compatible wings
From:Gregory Stewart
Tail and fuselage ok, mostly looking for wings, but if you have one you aren’t flying, I’d be interested!
