It's not the size or weight of the plane that I worry about. I'm comfortable with experienced flyers with big planes, -it's not their first flight, they know what they are doing. A newbie is...

I found clear panels for replacing older fiberglass panels at a Menards (like home depot). Weren't expensive either. Old panels were worn around the fastners, tried sealing around them with silicon...

You might want to add a few dryer sheets or moth balls to the planes just to be safe. Mice can make things a real mess if you give them a chance.

RE: Back after 5 yrs away

The ys140 was sold as an option by QQ with this plane. I had an os 160 on mine, and had to put the battery pack on the engine box in order to balance. If you have to do this, a a123 pack might be a...

RE: Spectrum DX8, Love it? Hate it? What?

It will bend- if you push the sticks all the way up or down they'll bend/flex slightly. I assume this is without much pressure. Like I said, this is what I have read in a review.

RE: Spectrum DX8, Love it? Hate it? What?

If you fly helicopters, the dx8 has a 5point throttle curve. A radio at this level (features/price) should have a 7 point curve. I read a review that said the gimbles would flex when moved up and...

RE: Landing Gear Fairing attachment help

My fairings had a strip of wood infront and behind the wire, about a half inch wide, the full length along the wire. I put a landing gear strap towards the top and bottom, makes it easy to remove.

RE: OMP YAK 47

When I put mine together, I put a sullivan tail gear on it, thinking it needed it. When the steering wire broke I put the original wire it was suppose to have on, and I think it works better.

RE: OS Max 60 FP Not Running

My 60 fp is a sweet engine. Gave me trouble only once when I replaced the carb and didn't have the airbleed screw set right. Other club members have noted how impressed with its performance -power...

RE: OMP YAK 47

Follow the directions, and it will turn out good. The only concern I had was the teatherite landing gear, they are abit spongy when landing and prop strikes if the landing isn't somewhat smooth.

RE: Flying on a frozen lake.

Flying in the center of the lake is great, even in 20+ mph winds, since the wind is less turbulent. Down lines are quick and up lines take forever though. Doesn't matter which way the wind is,...

RE: Female Figures for Cockpit

RE: Are all great planes kits this BAD?

My T-craft kit was good (just need to cover it). I've built about 6-7 GP kits, and all were good. I'd like to see what a bad one looks like, make me feel really fortunate...

I didn't like how loose the metal clevises felt when threaded on the rod, felt like a lot of play -way too much for me. I used the dubro clevis also, makes things feel smoother.
