Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

IMU wire fix (fingers crossed)

I was struggling to get the pitch to work due to the IMU cables .
I did swap for the finest wire  I could fine , which was better .but still not wright.

So now I got  a broken brushless motor and used the winding wires .
And it works great...

Is they any reason that I shoudnt use these cables (other than its not too strong)?

cheers

Silicone servo wire is good.  24 or 26 Awg.  But if what u have works stick with it.  I';d imagine they will be around the same Awg.  Surprised they work well though being single core I';d have thought they lacked flexibility.

up to now works well , but I am comparing against the cable used before which was far to heavy and stiff. The motor was a small bell type with very fine cable .
but I will order some 26Awg next time I am buying supplies.
Thanks you for the tip

Flexibility.  You are right..single core usually snaps if flexed long enough.
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.
