YS 91AC needle valve

I misplaced my needle valve on a 91AC. Centralhobbies only lists the complete needle system for this engine (needle, housing, seat, o-rings, detent spring, etc), but mentions this is the new version...

RE: CP Leo V2 F3A 110

I wondered the same thing about the price. The plane looks very nice, but I can get a BJ Craft Monolog 110 for quite a bit less ($245 right now) from F3AUnlimited: ...

RE: Chinese engines and UAV's

Yeah, you are all talk. What could you possibly know about UAVs? :D (Pat knows I am kidding...)

p.s. we need to go fly again soon. I need to show off my fun new plane with one of Bill's...

RE: Chinese engines and UAV's

That is very impressive indeed. It is supposed to be based at Everett eventually.

However, it is a good thing that it is fast. Hot steel has a way of slicing through aluminum like a hot knife...

RE: RC Aerodyne Extra 330

Good luck. I posted on FG. The guys at RC Aerodyne are very nice and knowledgeable, but are mostly helicopter guys. I believe you can trust them at their word so ask them any questions you need to...

RE: RC Aerodyne Extra 330

Good looking plane, and a nice price. The ailerons and elevators look pretty big so it should be fun to fly.

RC Aerodyne will be at the Northwest Hobby Expo next week. If I can I will ask...

RE: Wild Hare Electrics

Zach, what is the kV on that motor? I might pick one up just for fun. Having the bigger diameter prop will help with 3D.

*edit* I found the answer, it is 770 rpm/V(...

RE: FAA ceiling on R/C

RE: Metal servo arms

The 'Heavy Duty' plastic servo arms work perfectly fine when using a standard clevis, which centers the force in the plane of the servo arm. These will not twist the servo arm.

When using a...

RE: Wild Hare Electrics

I agree on the power and the wing. This plane has plenty of power and plenty of float already.

I forgot about the pushrod! I thought about using a standard for the elevators, and set it up the...

RE: Wild Hare Electrics

This is a great idea. I weighed a standard servo vs a mini servo, and honestly I believe the total weight will be very similar. The mini servo is 0.5 oz, while a full size is 1.5. Add in the weight...

RE: Wild Hare Electrics

The problem is we either spend the money for a new fuse, or chuck the wings and tail in the trash can and write off a $2850 (+shipping) plane entirely. It flies extremely well, but this is the last...

RE: Wild Hare Electrics

Zach,
I turned my screw around and mounted it to the landing gear leg with a locknut.

It goes, from inside to outside: screw-> gear leg -> wheel pant -> washer -> locknut -> wheel -> locknut...

I just saw your comment. Yes, it is the Kitsap ARCS field. Kyle love the plane, thought it was like flying a Red Bull Air Races plane. The stock power system is rock-solid reliable and has...

RE: Aviation Models 33% Yak Build Thread

Thanks Dennis, I agree this plane is a real sleeper. It flies extremely well, and it is cheaper than most 50cc planes.

My throws are somewhat similar to yours. Once I get some more accurate...

RE: Aviation Models 33% Yak Build Thread

FYI, these planes are on closeout at Chiefaircraft.com for $400 plus shipping [$459 (west coast) and $489 (east coast)]. Great deal on an excellent plane.

I FINALLY (!) got mine in the air last...

RE: Pattern Plane

A friend purchased the Zlin kit last year and IIRC the price was about the same as what I listed above. I don't know that he has built it yet but the bare fiberglass fuse is a work of art.

RE: Pattern Plane

I saw this thread by coincidence. The Arial was designed by Dick Hanson's son I believe, and is a wonderful plane to fly. Most of Dick's old designs are still available from Rich Lee. Here is some...

RE: Best way to sell 1/2 A stuff?

Dennis,

Those diesel MP Jet 061BB's routinely go for ~$80 on eBay, and most of them aren't NIB like yours. Keep that in mind.
