    Pete, what props do you run on your Saito .30. Today I ran a Xoar 10x5 and it still went to 10,650 rpm. It seems as though the Bolly 10x5.5 is the...

    Richard, a cheap set of wind chimes is a good source of various tube sizes which work well for that purpose.

    HS, you'll love the .74 when you use it. I mostly learned to fly with one on a Tower Trainer 60 RTC.

    If that's true I'll have to abandon Saito in favor of OS, Laser or Enya. I already got one OS, a .56 Alpha.

    Earl, I did some digging at Tru-Turn and they list two MVVS .77's and list the adapter for both as 7mm. Somethings amiss. I'll ask Dar.
