RE: What are the top 5 All composite Planes ?

Hey Dale.. I remember you for sure. Sorry, just didn't place the name. So as you can see here, you have lots of options. It just comes down to "how much free time you have to build", and ultimately...

RE: What are the top 5 All composite Planes ?

RE: Futaba Setup

It certainly wouldn't hurt to run a regulator with a LiFe pack. I personally don't. I have used a LiFe pack while using 3121's, 3421's, and 341's, and I haven't seen an issue yet. All my new...

RE: Futaba Setup

Bruce,

What LiFe packs are using that you see 7.2V's ?? The Orion packs I have been using are right at 6.7 - 6.9 volts peak.. Either way, I wouldn't worry about performance issues at 7.2V's.. ...

RE: pics of mh27

Ben,

Everything you describe about this plane, bleeds either "Tail Heavy" or the wing incidence is off... Here is the best advice: CG the plane at 2.5" inches.. Set the low rate elevator at...

RE: Racing Sticker, Application and Removal

Dennis,

Use your 3M tape and tape down the corners with a 1/2" x 1/2" piece of tape.. And 3M tape the sticker seem on the bottom.. That will fix it from peeling off in flight. Never had one...

RE: Waiting for the release

Don't you worry Sam... I'd bet a lot of money on that motor! If it runs 1/2 as good as the FAI engines those guy build. We'd all be in a world of hurt.

Dave,

Next time.. Do all your filler work before you glass the fuse, so that your filler is under your finishing resin/glass cloth. All that is used on the Vortex to install the tail and finish...

RE: WHat makes this sport attractive?

The "K" factor of flying around 3 poles, versus sport flying in front of myself... plus the speed.. If I wasn't racing Q500, Q40, or FAI.. I'd be racing some sort of Kart or Legend car!
