      I have one of the cheap orange ones as per DaveH's link above. It works fine, however I found the lithium button battery didn't last very long and was frequently flat when I arrived at a slope. It was not easy to replace at the slope. I have therefore soldered a lead directly to the internal button battery contacts and now use an external AAA size four cell Rx battery and of course the indispensable bits of velcro. I disconnect the battery when storing. Now I'm never short of a battery and could charge from the car if necessary. The slightly higher nominal voltage does not effect the meter readings. Cheers, John

      A Svolazzo kit was delivered to me this afternoon! As you say, it looks like a challenge but a really exciting design 👍 A 4 servo wing + pitcheron! Apparently it will help me take my flying to level 7. It was this great video that inspired me... The second one shows better what it can do.
