RE: FPV SURVEY

Did not get one yet but am glad to hear that apparently the AMA is considering doing something about FPV. I personally don't think it should be done as a "modelling activity". It's just too big of an...

RE: Parkzone Extra 300: Performance too high for my skill level

RE: DA/3W/ZDZ RCexl ignition conversion kits

Looks good!! A nice and simple holder. A nice snug fit around the wire and sensor even without glue. If and when I have to "mount" an RCexcel ign onto an engine....I'll def be looking for these.

RE: Faulty Ignition – NOT!

How are the magnets "glued" into the hub? How do you remove an existing one and "attach" a new one? I have an old 3W 140 that I overheated and "cooked" the cylinders on. The prop hub on this engine...
