RE: How much weight does a fibreglass finsh add compared to film?

I did a 1/3 scale Extra (94" wing) with glass/paint a few years ago and the entire finish added around 1.25 pounds. The fuse was already glass, so just primer and paint there. I used .56oz/yd cloth...

RE: Help with Sig Sukhoi

Thanks for the info, David! I figured it was fine to try a little back, but I wanted to either see it in print or hear from someone with experience. I didn't want to risk my new DA50's life for a...

RE: Trying to find an anodized wing tube

Wander how I missed the darn ano'd tubes at TNT? Cutting down the 48" tube is just the ticket, thanks for tips! I think an anodized tube will be better than carbon for this plane on account of the...

RE: Trying to find an anodized wing tube

The reason I'm looking for an anodized tube is that the wing and fuse sockets in my plane are fiberglass and they grind away at the tube making black crud all over it. Anything I've had with...

RE: XCELL GASSER TWITCHY TAIL

There's a good chance it's a motor tuning issue. You want to make sure you're not lean during break-in (or ever for that matter), but you don't want to be excessively rich. You will notice a small...

RE: Quick 30 Pro C

The quick 30 is a decent machine that will fly as good as most other 30's. It's pretty easy to assemble, but the instructions aren't very helpful, so don't hesitate to ask for help. It does weigh a...

RE: Cold Storage?

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm gonna go ahead and remove the batteries and probably wrap them in plastic to keep the dust out. The floor of my storage building is concrete so I'll put them up on...

Mike,

Thanks for the info and pics. I think your idea with your stabilator will work for what I'm doing. Same situation except I'll need to release the tube from the molds; initially, and then...

RE: New to helis.

None of the 6 channel radios I've seen (which isn't all of them) have the programming flexibilty that you really need for helis. I would recommend either the Futaba 9C or JR 8103. It isn't so much...

RE: Futaba Gy401 plug on JR receiver
