    Is the Ducted Fan Dead?

    I don't think that DF is dead---Maybe wounded a little!

    For those of you turned off by the looks of an AV8R or Facet and want the look of a "real" jet and low cost, check out Dave Platt's "Heat...
  2. What in the world causes this to happen??????

    Lynx,

    YEP!!! Not to mention the amplifier in the servo having to work harder and possibly failing---

    I just don't buy into the 6 volt logic that if you loose a cell then you could be OK. I have...
  3. What in the world causes this to happen??????

    Now that we're talking about chargers I have the Schulze Chamaleon ISL 6-330 charger and absolutely love it. It will charge ALL of the batteries including both of the lithium types. It has modified...
  4. What in the world causes this to happen??????

    I'm local and the problem was the 6 volt pack. Fully topped off a 6 volt pack can be over 7 volts!!! In my opinion, it is just not worth it to use a 6 volt pack requiring a regulator. If you need...

    What do you think of my Sea Fury

    I sure hope that TopFlight comes out with a giant 1/5th scale version of this awesome plane!!! If they do I will try to be the first to get one. A long time ago a buddy of mine had a 1/5th scale...

    Help with my O. S. .91

    DFF,

    The OS 91 in a Byro Jet configuration was not meant to be run at full throttle for any length of time while in a static (On the bench or in the plane) condition. I believe that your engine...

    Too Many Sabres Already?

    Too Many Sabres Already?

    Shaun,

    I believe that Dick's plane was 72" wingspan/72" length. With Viojett the all up weight was just over 20lbs. I would consider this size plane to be similar to Tom Cook's T-33 which also...

    Too Many Sabres Already?

    Shaun,

    I think that there's room for another Sabre if it is sized correctly. There are too many smaller versions of the Sabre already on the market. I would like to see one the size of Dick...

    Mini hobby brake valve

    Sandslx,

    I've seen Tom Dodgen's Smooth Stop setup on his longhorn BobCat and the servo is driven a little "over center" when in the max brake setting. The servo arm, control rod and brake valve...

    $58 too much?

    In my eyes an expense is an expense!!! It doesn't matter if this or that was done to transfer whatever to the AMA HQ/National flying site. All I look at is the bottom line concerning the total...

    $58 too much?

    Dave,

    To answer your question---I think that it would take a lot less to run the AMA HQ without the added expenses of the site maintenance. Your dues are paying for the maintenance of the road to...

    $58 too much?

    Ben,

    Ha ha ha!!! :D No, I wasn't implying that all of the fine people of Indiana lived in the middle of "No Where". I said that the flying site was in the middle of no where. No offense...

    $58 too much?

    I would like to clarify something here...The reason for the move from Reston was to save money but not for the reasons that E.T has lead you to believe. It was determined that the expense of running...

  20. How many receivers, accu, servos for a HotSpot?

    Lars,

    A gyro isn't really necessary on this model but in my opinion enhances the already good ground handling and flying characteristics of this plane. I use a gyro on all of my jets as an extra...
  21. Is anybody grumbling about AMA dues going up???

    Ken,

    I totally understand where you are coming from. In the grand scheme of things the dues increase is chicken feed compared to other expenses in both our hobby and our lives. I'm just miffed...
  22. Is anybody grumbling about AMA dues going up???

    The $58 dollars isn't really much when you consider what most of us spend in this hobby, especially if you are in to R/C. But that really isn't the point IMHO. I believe that the grumblings that we...

    UAT contamination

    I don't know how old Matt's UAT is but it is my understanding that Mat has been burning Crown kerosene for quite some time. I hope that someone finds the exact cause of this....that stuff looks...
  24. Servos

    I agree with Kelly concerning the servos. I used 8411's for the elevons and digital Hitec 5125's for the rudders. The rudder and nose wheel servos were used in conjunction with a JR 460T gyro (tail...
