I'm pretty sure the 11x will need to go under the knife of the professionals.. It's giving me a "model data not saved" error on power up. Maybe they can replace my TH switch too.. It just randomly falls apart and what ever position it falls apart in.. It stays in.

Your model data left the radio in the form of smoke.

The model memory is still there, it has everything up until the smoke left. It binds with all 3 of my big heli's and I flew my 130x. I didn't set my throttle curves for the Diabolo S, everything else was set, so all that info stayed. It just won't save anything new.

You are the first guy that I have ever heard of magic smoke coming out of their transmitter. I haven't had to replace a fuse in my transmitters since the gold box days, and then I just went to Radio shack and got them.

Boo for being the only dude on that list.. That's what I get for not paying attention. I'm pretty surprised that there is a fuse.. And that it would allow something to burn up before the fuse blew.. I'll find out today how much it's gonna cost me to repair.

If you hit something rated for less than 12vdc with enough current it is fairly easy to see where the fuse can get taken out and still fry the electronics.

What is fairly easy to some, is PFM(pure f_cking magic) to others... I don't understand how a fuse could allow more current to pass through it than what it is rated at to allow the electronics down stream of it that it is supposed to protect to be damaged. Maybe you could enlighten me.. Because I honestly don't get it.

Something is not right on what is happening to your tranny. I think that you are missing second gear. That's what you get for power shifting without using the clutch!

Some fuses are fast acting some are slow depends on the application. I would of though the fuse you blew would have been fast in that type of device. Slow acting fuses may be used in front of a motor to allow for the inrush current draw when the motor is starting to run.

since it wasn't the factory charger it is also possible that the polarity was reversed. Transistors hate it when you do that….

It's solely dependent on the transient time of the fuse. Since I don't know what was in there I can't say what that transient time is. Someone may have put a slow blow fuse in the radio, you may have done it, I don't know. Even a fast blow fuse may not protect sensitive electronics due to the transient time of the fuse and exactly how long it takes to blow and how much voltage and current hits the fuse all at once. Most radios that have a fuse basically protect against polarity issues not necessarily getting 20 volts applied to what is nominally a 9.6 volt system. If you are looking at max protection out of a fuse I would recommend using an FF type that is extra fast but I won't guarantee that will stand up if you decide to plug 20volts into a 9.6volt system.

It's not as though I said.. Check this out.. 20 volts.. That'll doer way better.. Had both plugs hanging out and just grabbed the wrong one. It was the stock fuse that was in it, at least as far as I know, it was second hand. Either way.. It's for horizon to deal with the fixin and ill foot the bill for my lack of attention to detail. In the mean time.. I have a DX9 on the way to play with.
Thanks for the explanation !

Lol Chet.. I seem to have a nack for the sarcastic... Regardless of my intentions. I really am greatful he explained if, I thought for sure a fuse would blow ,within a given tolerance, before damage was done. In the very least, I would hope that would be it's intended purpose. I am a mechanic on helicopters, but the electrician side is not my strong side.. But we have electricians.

You would think they would use the type of fuse appropriate for protecting the electronics it is there to protect. It shouldn't matter what voltage is applied or how, the fuse is supposed to blow before the electronics...that is why it's there.

Do a search for FF type fuses. Feel free to replace the stock fuse with one of those. I can tell you though that you will need to be very careful how you plug up your charger as even a momentary spark will pop the fuse.
