Looking good, what was the problem you were having with the radio? How much throttle were you using? Can't wait to see a full speed run

Well, there are a couple problems with the high speed setup I have. The speed controller is designed for planes, so there is no neutral point. The whole range of motion on the trigger is throttle, no neutral, no brake. The full brake position is "neutral" in my case. For high speed running radio range is a huge deal because you cover so much ground so fast. So any radio that has a much larger range is better.

I was using about 5% throttle at the most.

Could you modify the trigger return mechanism in the radio so that the spring returns it to the full forward position?

That is an idea I was thinking about also. Nic Case mentioned that too. He emailed me when he saw the results of my test. Its something I will have to try.
