edh13,
Bingo on the #11 error. I'm sure that's what caused my problem.
Funny, though, I remember the original picture of Flyboy Dave's Aresti
problem, and it...

RE: Please don't laugh...

RE: Predator or Viper for 46FX

Lear31a,

Daven,
I think you will be surprised to find that the years of experience some of us "older" guys have made flying so second nature, that it's easier to handle the fast, or quick models....

RE: What 32-36 engine for a Diamond Dust

Msmith0572,
I'm pretty happy with a OS Max 32sx with a Mac's muffler on my Dust. It's a very light combo, and the little 32sx really pulls it . The latest prop I've been using...

RE: which prop jet easier to fly? Lanier F4 or Kangke F20

I haven't flown the Lanier F-4, but I do have a Kangke F-20, and it would be a great choice based on what you mentioned. Nice, quick ARF. Flys and lands great, and looks great in the air.
