RE: IT/computer help needed please.

If you've left passwords and on-line account numbers on the machine you should immediately log into those account from another machine and change all the passwords.

RE: IT/computer help needed please.

You can identify the machine if it has been set to a static IP address, which, I'm afraid, is unlikely.

It's more likely to be set to a dynamic address, so, when connected to a network or the...

He also had an amazing life full of everything including a lot of tragedy.

RE: Yet another Sig Something Extra Build

I agree with your logic, but have to say that a SSE has such an efficient wing that the need for flaps in any circumstance is near to zero. When landing it's such a floater that the problem is...

RE: Yet another Sig Something Extra Build

I'm intrigued.

When are you going to use the flaps?

Also, if you need flaps. why not use the flaperon control in the transmitter?

RE: Yet another Sig Something Extra Build

Flaps?

The wing on a SSE is so efficient it's possible to land at almost zero ground speed with a slight headwind.

It's a real floater if you want it to be. I wouldn't have thought flaps...

RE: Yet another Sig Something Extra Build

All good points.

Also, if I remember correctly sheet balse is stuck over the two tip ribs just to finish them off. I see no reason why that shouldn't be left off completely to reduce weight.

RE: Yet another Sig Something Extra Build

I 100% agree, especially in the two ribs that hold the mounting tube and are therefore very high stress points. Take weight of the tips, for instance, by all means. There is at least as much meat to...

RE: fourth plane, sporty but not too sporty, what to get?

The Twist performs very similarly to a Sig SE; mainly because it has a similarly thick wing section and non-tapering chord

I reckon it was a copy of some of the features of the SSE because of...

RE: fourth plane, sporty but not too sporty, what to get?

The Sig Somethin' Extra probably lands slower than a trainer and is almost impossible to snap or tip stall.

It has about the best mixture of performance and ease of flying that it's possible to...

RE: fourth plane, sporty but not too sporty, what to get?

It's difficult to beat either the Great Planes Venus 40 or the Sig Somethin' Extra.

They are both very easy to fly and yet quite aerobatic. You will learn a lot about aerobatics from both.

As the others have said, expo makes it easier to be accurate in the middle of the throws (for landing etc) because the middle is less sensitive, but beware of one thing...

RE: .91 OS engine question... how many turns

If you are around 6 - 8 turns it will be flooding and therefore will not start. Close the needle completely and turn it over a few times, then open to about 2.5 turns without priming.

RE: Venus 40 Set Up

The Venus 40 is still my favorite model after flying it for 3 years and hundreds of flights.

It flies as straight as an arrow, and must be about the easiest fully aerobatic model to land.

RE: Need help setting up servos for elevator

If there isn't enough room to mount the servo arm on the other side, you will have to buy a reversing Y harness. They are quite expensive and have an adjuster so that the servos are matched.
