    He did mention a Super Skybolt that does have two center ribs. The point I'm trying to make is that you really don't need to make this overly complicated. You really only need to get the CG into the...

    Gtm, that would depend on the engine being used. I know that Airraptor ( Jeff ) had to mount his battery under the stab with a 115 installed in the nose.

    Clearly most guys don't 100% understand CG. For your first flights it is not a super critical setting. Even if you set it to the plans or manual it is most likely not going to be the optimal setting...

    Jason, nothing wrong with an opinion. Please take this for what it is worth as it is only my opinion. When something is said to the race organization that requires a reply then I feel it is elevated...

    Not too terrible temp wise. 45 pilots, pretty even spread between the classes. Low number of crashes. I havent looked at the results for each class so I really cant give standings other then JR is...

    Jason, how long has it been since you participated in a SAMs race?

    You know Robert, I quit posting over at RCG because I got tired of the BS I received while trying to teach guys about setup and trimming. I would at times take a half hour to put together a...

    I'm currently converting my 115WS to liquid cooling for this race. Hell if I'm having to install a scoop on the Macchi after 5 seasons of racing it I may as well have a functional radiator as well....

    Run it just enough on the ground to set the needles for clean transition. Keep it just a touch rich and go fly as normal.

    Most radios have dual elevator servo mixing, I would check into that first. If no mixer in the TX then I would suggest a Smart Fly equalizer. The equalizer will allow you to reverse a servo if needed...

    Things are moving slowly with this Macchi but they are moving. I got the last primer coat on it yesterday. The plan is to get the white base on tomorrow. I'm kind of stuck on the scheme design but...

    The ST is not the best choice however if he takes avantage of the engines torque I think it will be faster then with a screaming .61 in the nose. An ARF P-51 is pretty much a drag bucket. That's why...

    Do more reading, the compression ratio as it is now will not allow more then 15% nitro. Dont get carried away with porting other then a longer exhaust duration. Set the pipe up for about 13K and then...

    I strongly considered a Rossi 90 and actually had one in hand, its a very heavy engine and after running the numbers for the engine, header and pipe I realized that going to the YS was a better path....

    It all depends on what you want to do. If you plan to race the airplane then the ST may fall slightly short of silver speeds. A YS 91 AC would be minimum for silver, a 110 puts you in the zone. I...

    Acdii, your P-51example is pretty much what I am talking about. You state that it is " snappy " and rather then trim that behavior out of it you want to try a gyro/stabalization unit. The fact that...
