    RE: Zagi HP problem at full speed

    Very interesting - I fly an Assassin and a few Swift II's.
    One Swift I repaired after a significant crasah had a huge problem with diving under power and that was caused by the motor angle - the...

    RE: Hinge preference

    I'm not a huge fan of CA hinges except for small planes. I like the hinges that resemble a door hinge, and I usually use Gorilla to glue them in (VERY sparingly.) After that I like to seal the hinge...

    RE: Nitromodels PREDATOR RQ-1B

    You might want to up the power a bit as you suggest - at 40 ounces, 200W is not huge.

    However, the motor you showed a link to specs a 10x5 prop - Predator ground clearance really only allows for...
  4. RE: Need opinions on motor selection for large electric.

    Your Rimfire motor is designed for higher voltages than 8S A123 (i.e. 26.4V) - the motor spec says 33-44V. In order to get 2000W (i.e. 200w/pound in a 10-ound plane), you would need 2000/26 = say...

    RE: Parkflyers.com GEE BEE RTF 3D

    Hi - Does anyone know where parts (a fuse) or a complete plane might be available? I love this little GeeBee.

    RE: Servo Question

    Can you test it with a servo driver/tester? If you have, and the same tester worked fine with other servos, and you checked/rechecked the connections without success, you must have a bad servo. If...

    RE: Newbee Propeller question?

    I don't completely agree with Chocks on this one. For the same reason that changing the number of blades affects the power dissipation of a 9x6 prop, the stiffness and overall blade shape will...

    RE: Glueing wings together

    I LOVE Gorilla for foam - it fills gaps, and seems to enter the cellular structure of the foam very well. You can do surgery later if needed with a scalpel/hobby knife.

    ONE THING - Gorilla now...

    RE: frenzy 100 electric

    I think the AUW is about 8.5 pounds - if you run 6S you will need to set up for relatively high amps, i.e. if you want about 1600+ watts, your current draw will be 1600/(6*4) = 67 amps - or more if...

    RE: frenzy 100 electric

    I am away from the US now so I can't check, but I'm pretty sure I'm running a TGS 19x10, which is the size intended for 8S, although I'm running 9S.

    I'm thinking of trying it with two 4S...

    RE: frenzy 100 electric

    Hi Andy - Yes I did finish the project and I like it very much. I ended up using the official triangular motor mount that I got from another modeller, an Eflite Power 110, a Turnigy 100A 12S ESC,...

    RE: Durable 3D Foamie for Soccer Field

  14. RE: Any suggestions on where to buy a 3D foamy and what to try next

    DWFoamies make a few nice light Depron 3D planes. I have the Xtra Combat (38") and have just finished it. When I called them up with questions they were extremely helpful. You might want to take a...

    RE: Mini Swift look a like

    Looks nice, and very much like a small Swift. Hard to see their claim of 70 mph using what looks like a 1500kv FC2812 and a 6x4 prop. Maybe they are using the 2800kv version?

    Our club has been...

    RE: Flying time for T-28 Trojan

    3.8Volts/cell is fine - you could go lower. If your charger tells you how many mah it takes to recharge the battery, conventional wisdom has it that using no more than 85% - 90% max of the available...
  18. RE: Ultrashort range w/************ Wright Flyer?

    If you've checked every connection etc., then there is something wrong with the TX or RX. If it's new you should be able to get service or return it.

    RE: Super Cub LP wont balance

    My guess is that a lot of the awesome modifications have added weight behind the cg. I would particularly look to see where the 2100mah lipo is, and if it crosses the correct cg point, consider...

    RE: Servo

    Dan - these other issues are possible, but your setup really shouldn't exhibit this kind of behavior - and bear in mind its potentially fatal to the plane. Unless you are sure that you find and...

    RE: aileron flutters

    If there is only one servo for the ailerons, changing the servo should fix the problem. If there is a servo for each wing, and they are both fluttering, it's probably some problem with the receiver....
