    Little more progress on the bird

    I haven't had time to do much with this thing lately but I got a bit more finished. Looks good with all the body work on, although I had to hack up the ccowling pretty good to get a decent fit...

    My original thoughts are 9x8 was probably gonna be the optimal overall option. I agree it may be a bit draggy for an 8" screw but only way to find out for sure is try I guess. We'll see when the time...

    Oh yeah I plan on taking it nice and easy on the g forces. I agree with you on converting to glow as well. I just prefer glow over electric and its neat to change some things up. I dont have the time...

    When I read your thread it helped me choose the proud bird. I was originally going to try an invictus or outrageous. I still might eventually. I think I might toy around with an 8x10 on this thing...

    Im not a pylon racer though. I fully understand the mechanics of what it takes to make a plane that fast in level flight but a guy like me is fine with doing it out of a dive. In fact I actually...

    I forget his name but the one guy on here is getting like 180mph out of a gp patriot with a Rossi and a 10x8. I had mine in a patriot for a while and if I had to guess it seen 140mph or so out of a...

    proud bird evo 46nx

    Well here is what I got so far. I know the evo isn't a Jett or a Rossi but it still turns a 9x8 at a shade under 16,000. Not bad considering I've only got $90 in the motor and muffler. Originally...

    Stainless is softer. Im not 100% sure about its sheer strength qualities. I suppose this could potentially be beneficial if the vibration is breaking the brittle bolts your using now but I would...
