i tried the filament tape pull tab and it works ok, but i found it less hassle to use an aileron extension. JR has a 3" extension. most all are 6" or longer.

I super glue the lock side of a cable tie on the servo plug.
Works great.

Default Tekin 17.5

What motor timing is the standard for the Tekin 17.5? What happens if it is changed:

Up 4?

Down 4?

I believe it is set to 12degrees out of the box. Up 4 gives you 16, down 4 gives you 8.

Lower timing offers more torque, higher timing offers more rpm.

Stock timing on all Redline's is 12 degrees. You can go up to 24 and down to 0.

alright, bought a futaba extention wire of 10cm length. I don't know why i didn't think of that before! I can recomend everyone to buy it for such small ammount of money. It is super handy to get the plug in and out, no wire pulling anymore and it looks tidy as well. Way to go.



@Ben

What you ask is a basic question about motor timing wich has been discussed a lot of time on all kinds of brushed and brushless forums.

Anyway, low timing gives more torque but lower revs. More timing gives more revs but lower torque.

I don't want to sit on a pedistal but normaly when i buy something new i read every page on every forum about that product. Hell, i read the pancar thread in the oval section on here for 10 times or something from beginning to the end and it is almost 1000 pages long! Don't you want to know as much info about a product/car/class as possible so you can use that information as good as possible for your own benifit?

Reading is the best source for information and many of youre questions about certain things has been explained hundreds of times. Try to make it your benifit.

Make sure the cap is the correct voltage. Usually the dotted dashes are the negative pole.

I dont think that will work... but check with Randy. I think you need a 16v cap.

I used a 4700 16V
It worked great.
I think 35V is to much.

Ricky, why do you want to change the capacitor ? if you're going to be running the RS with anything from 21.5 down to 8.5 motors then the capacitor that ships with the RS is more than capable of doing the job.
