    RE: My new T/F Mustang GS (Bald Eagle) FLOWN!!!

    Kelly,
    Be careful of those 821s.
    I had TWO of them go bad on me as the main spline split in two pieces. Horizon sent me two new ones with no questions asked and did not even ask for the broken ones back...

    I had the same thing happen to some 821s. I didn't even bother fixing them or talking to Horizon. I just chucked them figuring that if they split, their replacements might do the same.

    Yes, I've heard of that problem. They've been in there for four years now. Wasn't the problem blamed on the arm screw. It was either too short or too long. Something along those lines.
    I also run them in my Corsair.

    I've seen one go first hand. The spline snapped in half. It was being used as a throttle servo on a DA-150, so maybe excessive vibration accelerated the failure. I would highly recommend metal gear servos.

    RE: My new T/F Mustang GS (Bald Eagle) FLOWN!!!

    Sorry I missed old Baldy's birthday. She just finish up Season #6. She had a good year with lots of flights. No damage. However, a bad ignition (older CH) caused me to sit out and watch a fly-in this year[X(]. I replaced it with a RCXcel unit. Man wish I had done that sooner. She picked up a few RPMs on the top. She was clocked staight a level by a Stalker radar gun. Multible passes, 138 mph (Zoom Zoom!!)

    Notice I did change the color scheme a little bit. She flew these colors all season. I like it better.


    See ya next year!!
    Kelly


    BTW the servos are still working fine.

    RE: My new T/F Mustang GS (Bald Eagle) FLOWN!!!

    After all this time I finally have some good video of Bald Eagle flying. This was at Joe Nall 2012. I was there from Wed-Fri and got in 18 flights. My good friend Dane Edwards film us flying.
    I lost my muffler in the noontime gaggle and had to replace it with a side mount. But hey it was still flying.

    Thanks for being faithful to updating the thread each anniversary! Sure is nice to see a model being enjoyed for many years and the owner still excited about how she flies. When you get this kind of enjoyment for this long, the money spent on building/equipping her is very minimal. Nice videos!

    Happy Birthday, Bald Eagle, 

    Thunderbolt47, I saw your posts about the batteries, electronics, etc, but I didn't see what prop you are using. Make, size if you would please.

    thanks,
    Brian

    It's an APC T-6 racing prop. You have to call APC to order it. The last one I bought was $25.

    RE: My new T/F Mustang GS (Bald Eagle) FLOWN!!!

    Thanks for the comments guys. I have enjoyed this plane alot. She has been my only plane flying for two years now. I would guess over 400 maybe 500 flights. However this was a slow year, and I was still able to get in 45 flights.
    She is still a crowd pleaser after 7 years. When I pull up to a Fly-in people always ask did I bring my Mustang. She is very well known in Eastern NC. [8D]
    Many have came for a race but only a few have equaled her at best. I love high speed formation flying. Real thrill!!!!
