Yes this has been discussed on the other site. Word from Align is its intended mostly for 72mhz and sensitive RX's like the Futaba G3.

PS... For you chronies on patrol this info is not from me nor am I claiming it is.

Have a nice day.

You think if I make my wife a necklaces out of these, it would work as a noise choke for her?

I'd guess that upon slicing off that orange cover, one would find a large microfarad value, 6 or 10 volt WVDC surface mount tantalum capacitor.

Quite different than the usual toroid.

There was an article in Model Aviation about 20yr ago on a poor mans choke that was simply tying a knot in the lead just before the Rx. I've used it on several models since reading the article and have to say it works for most glitches. I had a hornet w/micron6(72mhz) that the deetee glitch reducers didn't even work but when tying a knot in the leads it calmed down effectivelyIgnorance is the absence of facts.Stupid is lacking the intellectual capacity to comprehend the fact

We've had more luck with grounding the boom and frames to the negative of the Flight pack on the 500 . All of our problems were with the spektrum rx's suddenly going full negative pitch at full power (not failsafe).

I had about 30 flights on mine before the first lockout, a friend I fly with every day had a lockout every single flying session resulting in a rebuild. Grounding the heli solved it.

Can you please clarify the what you did to ground it? I have a brand new 500 with 9303 and Spectrum RX. I want to head off any issues before I start.

Hi Jim,

Firstly stick a self tapper into the boom just above the tail servo mount making sure it doesn't interfere with the tail belt. Attach a wire to it. Underneath one of the screws going into the frame grind an area to remove some laquer and attach the other half of the wire going to the boom to it. So now your boom should be connected to the frames.

Next up, grind another area under a screw connecting to the motor mount and connect up one end of a wire to that. Solder the other end of that wire to the negative wire of the flight pack that goes into the ESC.

That'll take the charge from the boom, through the frames and to the flight pack. There is also a charge developed by the motor (all motors, not just the 500L) which will be conducted away.

all a choke is a coil of wire .. 2 knots are better

but i have not yet seen a problem with a 72 mhz system
