    Mayki, did you consider attaching your video transmitted at the bottom of a lid (longitudinally) rather than bay itself? This way you would be able to open the lid without interfering with the antenna.
    This. He's right.

    That layout looks fine to me. Very similar to what I've done, and everything's working just fine.

    Hey guys,

    I've run into an unfortunate situation where I have no time and need cash. I have a kit that I have no chance in the foreseeable future to be able to build and stack with electronics, and need funds for life happenings.* If anyone is looking to pick up another drak or thinking about getting one initially, let me know. Just to set the expectation, I'm not looking to dump it fire sale style, but can save you a little bread. The only thing done to it is the elevons are painted black with plasti dip and have the spars in them. I haven't had and won't have a second to do any more with it, which I'm pretty upset about,* but it is what it is.* Pm me if you're interested and want to go over details.* First come, first served, so get it while it's hot. Thanks.

    Today I had a "weird" issue, at least it seemed very weird while it was happening. I launched and immediately noticed I was WAAAAY out of trim. Would just nose dive when I'd let off the stick. Well what happened was, when my dragonlink antenna touched my DX9 antenna, it ran my elevator trim to full down. Thank goodness I still had enough authority to land safely. So my question is, if I put my DX9 into "wired trainer-slave" mode, it doesn't seem to do it, however, my controls are all backwards.. Even if I reverse it in the radio, it won't reverse on the controls... Will this be achievable in the vector setup???

    You always need to run the Vector wizard first. After you are done, move with your sticks and check the graphical movement of controls in the Eagle tree configuration software.

    Happened to me with easystar on rudder channel ;-)
