RE: Turbine cool down - pulsating vs. constant

RE: Why haven't JetJoe Turbines Improved??

No, but it isn't Inconel 713c or 718. Probably a lower grade, perhaps some kind of fortified stainless.

RE: Why haven't JetJoe Turbines Improved??

Why haven't JJ improved? They don't need to. The price is low enough.

Doesn't matter that they are crap. Doesn't matter that the turbine is not made of Inconel, the tolerances are...

RE: Turnigy. SkyFly, etc. X9 radio???

I've been using mine for 2 months without a problem.

Can't comment on the software because I never got to try it out :)

RE: What temperatures do you guys fly in?

Dry is dry. Much better as long as you drink a lot of water.

It's "only" 35 deg c (95f) here but with the humidity the heat index is around 58c (136f)!

RE: Best Place for Sheet Steel for making Pipes

Just get 304. Just as good for tailpipe application and costs much less. Do not buy 303 or 301.
321 and 316 are also applicable but offer no real advantages for our use. They are, however,...

RE: A123 users question

I use 2 packs of 1100mah with 2 switches.

Always charge the day before and never fly more than an hour total. Then again I have a small jet with very little servos.
