Default radio problems

Just for your information,there were alot of drivers with radio problems at the worlds.It was not any certain make or style of radio,Futaba,KO,Airtronics.They all had problems.There were drivers getting very creative in trying to solve there individual problems.So it wasn't Just Salven.

I'm right there with you. I make and sell batteries and I always recommend LiFE and NiMH over LiPO for those reasons you've outlined. Also most receivers don't like the voltage so if your regulator dies you almost always fry your receiver and sometimes your servo's along with it.

Serpent-Dan:
you asked "Were the PF R15's running well?"

The answer: YES - Absolutely. There were 2 Protoform R15's in the A-Main in the hands of 3rd place qualifier Dario Balestri and 4th place qualifier Takaaki Shimo.
All of the other 8 A-main qualifiers were equipped with Protoform P909 bodies.

R15 runner Dario Balestri was especially impressive during the main when he started reeling off incredible 15 second laps (as low as 15.7's) when everyone else was running mid 16's. Dario's lap times in the main were the quickest of the event - by anyone. It was not only amazing, but it also proved the R15 body style was up to the task. In the end (because of the rain) the finish results for the R15 body were the same as qualifying - Dario 3rd and Takaaki 4th.

Many congradulations to Robert Pietsch for his week long domination and big win!

Thanks to the many racers who opted to use Protoform Race Bodies at the WORLDS.

See you all on Japan in 2013!

Interview with Mike Swauger:

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


I have been working diligently on the Hara interview and I think I may need to call in the cavalry on it. If there are any video/audio professionals out there that would like a challenge please PM me! I could certainly use your help. It was a great interview and I'd hate to see it not get published because you all can't hear it.

I really had a lot of respect for Swauger, but now it's all gone after I saw this interview.
