    Are you using a spinner with a plastic backplate? If so, that's your problem. Cut a piece of open mesh plumber's sandcloth or drywall sanding sheet...

    There are several items of good news there. The plane is a trainer, so it's appropriate for a beginning pilot. The servos and engine aren't too...

    It also depends on the brand you choose. Saito and the current OS Alpha series will make more power than a Magnum or any of the older OS 4 strokes. A...

    Also, there isn't a particular brand of prop that works best, is most efficient, or "best" in any other category. When you get down into the details...

    That would have been great if it had been possible. But you're ignoring another factor in the situation, the human behavior element. There is a...
