RE: Scoop! Hangar 9 Phoenix 7...ARF!!!

RE: RC Pylon - An outsider's view PLEASE READ

Gentlemen,
Dave has made a great point that I hope we can embrace. What often happens on these internet forums is that people talk AT each other instead of TO each other. All the civility that is...

RE: Bridi Super Kaos Build

I've built a lot of Kaos', regular and Super, with and without retracts. My favorite is the regular with fixed gear, because it maintains a more constant speed on downlines with the extra drag. And...

RE: KAOS AND RELATED PLANES AND INFO

You are doing it correctly, except that an 11-6 is too small for the OS 61AX. You should be running an 11-7 or 11-8, unless you are at a high altitude. You do not want much silicone tubing between...
