You can see the front of the tank in the plane as the tank is enclosed in a box

Any chance the the plug from the esc into the timer is backwards?

Got a super nice manifold for my OS .26s four stroke today from Bob Zambelli. He does such nice work, this is the third one I gotten from him and they just keep getting better. The first one I got about 15 years ago, is still doing a great job. Bob knows his stuff for sure. thanks again Bob.

Dan,

The small ones are 3/16" and the larger ones are 7/16" across the face.
Thanks for asking, Jerry

Pickup or vent?  I place the pickup tube so that the clunk will reach both outboard rear corners of the tank if I can, or so it gets equally close if I can't.  That usually requires some coaching.

Post a picture of the tank in the plane?

Did you check the exact wiring loom outside the plane and then put it in, or did you add stuff (like an arming switch)?

If you added stuff, did you put a lot of extra wire in between the battery and the ESC?

If you didn't significantly extend the battery wiring, and particularly if you added the arming switch as you did the installation, I'd check that the arming switch is clean and making good connection, and I'd double-check that the wiring from the ESC to the timer hasn't broken, and that the servo connector has all its contacts in the right places (they can push out the back if they're badly done or abused).

If you can bypass the arming switch and plug the battery straight into the ESC that might be informative.

And just to raise your confidence level -- everything here is a guess about something that may help you learn something.  It's not an absolute "this is the problem" diagnosis.

So, I have a Cobra 2826/12 motor, Phoenix Edge Lite 75 ESC, Hubin timer, 5S, 35C, 2800mAh battery. I will show my complete ignorance of electric systems.

Now, I checked everything before I finished the plane. Worked fine. Now, the plane is finished and I put it all together and I'm getting a weird problem.

I put it together and hooked up a battery. When I plug in the arming switch, I get the tones it usually plays after the battery check, but it plays them twice. It doesn't seem to be checking the battery as I'm not getting the 5 tones it usually plays to check the cells. Not sure what that means. I push the timer button and the prop spins once then I get was a assume is an error tone. 3 chimes. Beep, beep, beep. Wait about 3 seconds then it does it again and so on.

I tried changing out timers. I checked the ESC with the Castle software and it seems to be fine.

Any ideas?

Well say what you will, I'm here to say that Jay Smith, Editor of MA walked the walk and went beyond what I was lead to expect!

After the thread here on Stunt Hanger last Spring complaining about lack of control line coverage, I emailed him on May 26th. I thanked him for past coverage and asked if he would be interested in an article about the Ringmaster Fly-A-Thon.

He emailed back on May 31st and said the he would be happy to look at such an article. I told him that it would have to be in the August or September issue (before this year's event) or I would submit one after the fact reporting on the results. Jay replied that if I could get him a draft by June 10th the article could be a feature in the September issue. I burned some midnight oil and came up with a draft of 3645 words by the deadline. Jay personally edited that draft cutting it down to 2000 words. We got some photos together and the layout folks did the rest. Clancy Arnold tells me that his feature articles in Model Aviation have taken 1 to 2 years to make it into print!

I think that we need to stop bellyaching and send him some drafts of articles that would be of interest not only to control line fliers but other modelers as well.

Other than misspelling my name in the table of contents  Head bang I have no complaints about my article and I feel a debt of gratitude to Jay Smith for his editing skills and his helping promote control line modeling via my article!



Amen. If your not up to writing an article send photos if your projects into "focal point", I've had two planes published in two years.

I need a 7 oz tank and this is the only one that will fit in my tank compartment. My question is how can I determine the pickup location
on this type of tank it needs to be lower than the center to the tank about where the seamless is stamped in the tank
