    I don't want to come even close to losing mine, so I keep it within easy visual range, 50 yards or thereabouts.

    About six months ago or so, I went to my local Wal-Mart and got a 'generic' USB charger. I am satisfied with it, especially because I can charge my Alias' batteries (as well as my DR-1 and QR-1...

    The key words are "up to." I think that one will get close to that with calm and slow flight control inputs. Any aerobatic maneuvers require high speed out of one or more motors, which will require...

    My first quad-copter was the QR-1, and once I got used to it, I've enjoyed flying it indoors. My only complaint about the design is that the rotors are friction fitted on the motors. They pop off...

    Post race: Courtney Force lost in the first round to eventual runner-up Ron Capps. Teammate Robert Hight lost to Cruz Pedregon when he tagged the wall just prior to the finish line. John Force won...
  6. Weather induced lack of activity here?

    There has been a decided downtrend in posts in this category.

    I'm assuming that it's because that with warmer weather here, chopper flying has moved outdoors, where the LaTrax Alias excels. I'm...

    How sweet it is

    One week from today the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals kick off here in Norwalk, OH.

    Now that I have the DR-1, QR-1, and Alias 'copters, I'll have even more reasons to visit the Traxxas...

    Over time, rechargeable batteries become less and less like new. The chemicals therein get 'used up,' as it were. Eventually, they must be replaced.

    I suggest that, after charging them, you use...

    Oh really?

    To me it looks like a standard red Alias with clear lenses on all four legs.

    Pink? Let's see it in daylight.

    This seems to be the place for a nice segué to an interesting situation I had yesterday evening. I had flown my Alias until the first battery ran out. I replaced it, fired up the system, and the...

    Well . . . there [I]is[I] a short boost in thrust immediately prior to a pre-programmed flip, but when the Alias is past vertical attitude, thrust (however reduced) AND gravity are pulling it down,...

    Lots more space

    Until yesterday, my outdoor flying was within the confines of the trailer park in which I live. Yesterday I took my Alias to my sister's place. She has a comparatively huge back yard, and I made...

    Advertising bonanza

    FINALLY, the 100th woman to win a NHRA Wally in the pro ranks occurred when Courtney Force won the TF Funny Car Wally at the NHRA Kansas Nationals in Topeka last weekend.

    I agree fully with the concept of 'fine muscle control.'

    For a few takeoffs a month ago, one or more of the rotors did not spin up as I expected. I thought "Oh crap, a motor is about to die." It...

    Rajadody, you're gonna love your Alias. It's big, easy to see (day or night), and the six-axis stabilization system (in default or Exp. 1 mode) is great. I had fun getting a feel for mine indoors...

    It sounds normal to me. A "pretty" calm wind condition is not dead still, something that's probably more theoretical than actual, if ever. There are also temperature and humidity gradients to...

    It appears to me that you may have a problem with the circuit board. When all LEDs are blinking on my Alias, it indicates a protective shutdown due to a severe enough crash. All I've had to do is...

    The way I see it, the battery won't shift while the Alias is airborne. After an unexpected impact, have a look and if necessary, reset it.

    I bought (via buyTraxxas) two more batteries and a dual charger. I also purchased (from my local Wal-Mart, in my case) a power adapter with a USB output that I could simply plug into a wall outlet. ...

    It appears to me that the rotor bearings are sealed. I daresay that simply keeping the area clean will do the trick.

    Motors or operator 'error'?

    There have been a lot of complaints about the durability of the motors posted in this forum. When two motors went out on my Alias within a short period of time, I jumped right on the bandwagon.

    I think so. Though I have the skills to modify the off-brand motors, I'm not really in the mood to fool around with 'em.

    When TRAXXAS brand motors became available, I ordered them and installed...
