RE: Top-Flite 1/5th F4U Corsair ARF Group Build and modification thread

Also the gear door...

RE: WACO YMF

RE: WACO YMF

I have a Evolution 7-77 Radial in my 1/4 scale Waco YKS-6. It weighs 24.5 lbs and has plenty of reserve. I'm quite sure the engine could handle another 10lbs easily. It's really a great engine.

RE: UMS Evolution Radial Care and Operation

badangle - I can't give you an exact weight as the wings are off for transporting to the field. I'm guessing around 24 lbs. but I'll weigh it when I go to fly it again.
The 7-77 had way more power...

This seems to be True Confession Time so I'll post this picture.

RE: Spektrum DX18

I found this case on the Maxford USA web site. http://www.maxfordusa.com/otheritems.aspx

For $34.00 It is an excellent case. The Spektrom decals came with the TX from Horizon.
