how on earth did I get all that in there?

Managed to recover another website. This one was in the medium difficulty group. Tomorrow I’ll go for the Real Stuff! In between some time to work on the Insider, it’s mostly general maintenance, checking all the bits and bobs, making sure things are working as designed. It’s amazing how much bits I managed to hide in that fuse. But no matter how hard I tried, that standard Jeti would not fit! In the end the solution was simple: get rid of the housing, it only adds extra weight where I don’t want it. It’s slightly narrower in the bare then the original ACT one, but the connectors are now in an awkward position. We’ll think about it!

Note to Self: try to get those pics lined up, there must be a plugin for that!

With the festivities out of the way, it’s time to return to rebuilding websites.  My progress is too slow, I know. I need to do it differently. Not sure how,  I’ll think about that tonight!

I decided to update the Insider with a Jeti RX. The 9 channel receiver did not comfortably fit in the designated space, so I removed the box and put some heat-shrink on it. Also checked the main battery, it will be good for a few more flights. There’s a fresh Vario on the way, to go with the Jeti-system. Basically the same as the previous unit, just less hassle (I hope). The ‘hassle’ is that I usually forget the charge the receiver 😉
