RE: RCU Virus Infected

A few days ago I was getting a popup virus warning every time I clicked on the 'Forums' button. It only lasted the one day, and now it seems fine.

RE: ready to fly!

I also recommend the aluminum spinner nuts that jaka mentioned. They cost about the same as a plastic spinner, they don't get chewed up by the starter, and they make it a LOT easier to change props....

RE: frequency board design

Instead of a frequency board, our club uses a pin pole. Our membership cards double as a frequency pin, and the secretary gives us as many pins as we need for all of our channels.

RE: Anyone know about this airplane?

It's definitely heavy for a .40-.50 size 3D plane. Probably more of a fun-fly, but still very heavy for that. You would definitely want to overpower it. I don't even know if the .91 four stroke...

RE: Ordered new plane.... How to change this?

I don't know that I would try a hair dryer to remove the decal from the foam. You could end up melting the foam. You could also end up taking some foam with it if you just try to peel it off, and any...

RE: Trainer choices

The LT-40 is generally regarded as the best overall trainer, but you really can't go wrong with any of the more common trainers, including the Goldberg Eagle 2, Hangar 9 Alpha, Tower Trainer,...

RE: How Much is this Worth?

As others have said, it won't be worth a whole lot to a buyer, and you would have to sell it locally because you can't ship something that big at any kind of reasonable cost.

Seriously, I would...

RE: Help please with ProYak building!

Please don't take this the wrong way, but in your first post at RCU you are asking someone to send copyrighted plans, for an ARF plane, that is still in production, to a person in a foreign country....

RE: 3D Capable plane for .46?

That engine would fly a Mojo 40 just fine. I have a 55AX in mine, and it goes vertical at 1/4 throttle. Lots of guys fly them with 46AX's.

You definitely want a light profile. Good luck.

RE: Airplane long storage

I can't add any advice, but thanks for what you are doing. We all really appreciate it.

If you need anything when you get back (like new batteries), just let us know.

Good luck and God...

RE: muffler threads sealant

He is asking about a four stroke muffler, which doesn't have bolts or flanges, it is just a threaded tube with a lock nut. They also run a bit hotter than two stroke exhausts.

RE: How do i control front landing gear

No, that's not right. Is it? The direction of rotation of the servo arm is still the same if you spin the servo around. You need to move the control to the opposite side of the servo.

But there...

RE: How do i control front landing gear

I would put both servos on a Y harness. If possible, you would then have to move one pushrod to the opposite side of the servo arm, so that both elevators are moving in the same direction. If you...

RE: How do i control front landing gear

Maybe you can simplify things. Do you use rudder much while flying this bird? On my V-tail planes, I only used the rudder function for ground steering. Since the V-tail won't be needed for ground...

RE: Flaperons or spoilerons

I have flaperons programmed on one of my Mojos and spoilerons on the other. Ideally, I guess you would want a three position switch so you could do either one on the same plane, but my radio doesn't...

RE: Carb Linkage On Wrong Side?

Are you building it as a trike or a taildragger? My first thought was just to flip the servo tray over, and mount the throttle servo on the opposite side of the fuse, but that does conflict with the...

RE: what kind of radio.

I still haven't made the jump to 2.4 yet, through I have been tempted. The Airtronics does seem like the best bang for the buck, but then the Hitec Optic 6 is often on sale with two RXs for a really...

RE: Dumb CA glue technique question.

When I do build with CA, I do it just like you say - I position the parts, then put a drop of medium on each side of the joint.

On really tight joints, you can put a drop of thin there, and it...

RE: Charging a 2200 mAh lipo

I usually try to stick to 1C, which would be 2.2A

That's not to say that it is unsafe to go higher, but I think it's better for the battery to stick with 1C.

RE: Sig LT40 or GP PT40 for first build in ten years?

Probably blasphemy here in the kit forum, but I tend to agree. For $70 US you can get a Tower Trainer ARF. It is not as good a plane as an LT-40, but it gets you in the air. Then take your time and...
