    Realistic yes practical no. Full scale 51's had 4 blades to handle all that horse power without having to go to a larger diameter blade. Our smaller engines would be overloaded. A 3 blade works...

    I think your title is a little misleading in that it sounds like you want people 50 and over to participate rather than those who have been modeling for 50+ years. I'm only 58 but stil remember some...

    Glad I did not buy one of these, I was thinking about it because of doing 4 at once. Thanks Dan, did you get it from one of the major vendors? Maybe you can exchange it.

    Like it or not you are going to have to cut open the cowl to let heat out so you may as well go with the pitts and cut out the bottom

    More MaH = more run time .More volts = fried motor. Step up to a lipo battery and charger and see a world of difference over nicd or nmh. Mah is like having a bigger gas tank.

    Thats funny because nitro fuel kills the grass too. I would ask them to allow you to fly if you can pass the noise test. I found switching to a 3 blade prop toned down my DLE 20 quite a bit over a 2...

    What are the voltage requirements? If it will handle 6.6v I would go with a LiFe battery 1500mah will do but bigger won't hurt. If you don't have a life charger then nicad or nmh will work fine.

    Well this goes way back, but I used to fly my cox control lines in the street and when a car would come I would fly high until they passed. We lived on quiet street back then.

    Good to know, I never would have thought about that. Perhaps a food grade silicone or one used in aquariums would be better.
