Ok remedial question here..but your wiring diagram has several Toroids around multiple wires at multiple locations...is that just a metal ring that reduces interference? WHere do I get them?

Has anyone done anything extra to secure the wings such as small screws with backplate that would go thriught the wing and bite the carbon spar? Or velcro between Tge wings and fuselage?

Yes on tape the wing
same here...I do place one rubber band however, as I bought a pack of them for $1 (Ogar sales office in Livermore, CA store has them); I use medium strength tape; don't want to take the foam off...slightly scars but worth it.

I used a bit of velco for added security with the wings. I put a strip on each wing root and on top of the fuse, then when the wings were attached I could put a strip across both roots for an extra secure hold.

another slick joiner
Perhaps the slickest one of all is what I consider the best product of the year 2011: drum roll: DIFFERENT NAMES: "Ultra Fasteners/Reclosable /All weather" by 3M, not the homogenous one = too stiff, removing is pain and can dislodge itself (way too strong)....the one product that I keep cleaning off the shelves of EVERY RADIO SHACK I come across is the "Wavy" usually clear in color (sometimes black), they have similar names but the name and the color keeps changing, but just look for a wave pattern = missing some pins on purpose to lower the fastener strength. It is half way in year 2012 and I want to re-nominate this product again as BEST AUXILIARY RC PRODUCT OF THE YEAR ! so many applications in RC as a joiner that stays put, but easily comes off by operator.
p.s. even in many cool application that magnets would do well, but magnets are time consuming, technique sensitive = a pain in the butt, and a bit unpredictable to get right, also worries of voodoo magnetic fields is easily replaced by this product; just cut with scissors to any shape you want; and if the size is so small you worry about the strength then use the stronger homogenous one (maybe called Heavy Duty now).

I like the Scotch faster... I'll look for it.
I'm making progress on the OGAR... I'm trying to upload some pics. All the electronics are "placed and some mounted with Velcro. My Digital video Tx died it appears deter a 5 minute setup. Yes... The vtx antenna was attached . I contacted ReadyMade Rc to see if a warranty will replace it. Either way i ordered another vtx to keep working. The Eagle Tree OSD was working with display, the V2 Dragon Link installed...although DL still owes me some small parts that they have not sent.

makes sure you buy a small fan at radio shack and power it with a lipo that keeps the VID TX cool; be extra extra careful to keep the vid tx from getting hot for too long
EDIT: sorry I was not clear: I meant when you are on the ground dickering with programming.
