Set an alarm and save a crash.
BINGO!

A servo getting too hot and/or binding then stalling.

Perhaps a chafed wire insulation given those sharp carbon frame edges and vibration. Pre or post flight does not detect all.

Seen many threads wondering max amp pulled by a servo. Others would love to know what kind of amp does a Mcdoodle maneuver pulls. I do! but not on my dime so I will wait for someone else to post.

Given, it's not for everybody but I think it's great.

Come on guys, RM3 is **joking.

**He writes codes sitting in front of a monitor, uses FBL, a CCPM capable Tx and have at some point in time downloaded data from a castle ESC. Makes heli and engine parts...all geeky things just like most of us (except the MONKEY photo) Ha!. His only downside is that he drives a plastic car.

Personally I don't care. Ha.
...and 3 post later but more to come.

You guys are hilarious. Thanks for posting and bumping thread for all to see. Spread the news!

yeah... but it dont ding... and its a Vette.... and the funniest thing... body panels are cheap (i didnt realize that!)... now I gotta decide to rebuild the "other" with a 383 or let her go (thats another topic)

Its all in good fun. I can see that there would be a need for such technology. its just not for me. Sometimes technology actually gets in the way of having fun, thats just my 2 cents. We could debate it on both sides, and both have solid points. Hey if can use it and it makes your life more fun... go for it. I myself enjoy looking and flying the heli itself, I do my pre-flights looking for loose or missing parts, fly and do a post flight feeling for hot, loose parts... often followed by a walk to recover said lost part.

I do like telemetry, especially engine temp , RPM, and most importantly fuel. but I can see myself getting overwhelmed worrying about each and every servo or freaking out about a beeping alarm could be and not wanting to take my eyes off the heli to look down at my TX... or trying to hear what my TX is saying (remember the talking spektrum voice alerts?)

Now if your into say very high performance like the Speed cup or 3D at competition levels... yeah I can see that too. but for the average weekend sport flyer... not so much.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

No worries mate. I know jest when I see it. Others may take it too seriously and the thread goes downhill from there and detract from the original intention...to be informative and or helpful.

Enjoy the vette, definitely cools wheels to drive to a boring job

Back on topic...
If I had a hole in my pocket, I would definitely get the Jetti radio and all its geeky gadgets just because "the geek wants out" despite not needing it.
