From the photos, it appears that the back plate took the brunt of it and should probably be replaced. I think F3A Unlimited stocks replacement back plates. It appears that the case only has one small...

It's becoming a common misconception that HV servos eliminate the need for a voltage regulator. In reality, that's true in terms of the voltage capability of HV servos, but matching servos to power...

Joe,
Your answer is in your statement of symptoms and its really quite simple. Everything you have right now results in a pull to the canopy when you're trimmed for straight and level which just...

Your symptom statement is a bit confusing. You say you need a lot of elevator to fly level. Are you holding elevator or trimming it in? Up or down? You can't test vertical up, vertical down, and...

The CARF instructions I got with my Integrals were based on Jason Shulman's notes on the prototype. Jason ended up moving his CG forward as well. Unfortunately, CARF never updated their instructions....

RE: Jetti Pro Spin 99

I finally found some documentation on the Timing Monitor. It allows you to turn the beeping sound in the motor on or off that happens during programing and when the controller initializes. Obviously,...

RE: Jetti Pro Spin 99

I'm using the Hacker-Jetti Master 90 Comp with a Pletty Advance and am routinely using 4000 mah in the AMA Masters pattern which seems high to me. Did you have the timing monitor turned on in yours?...

RE: 2015 AMA Sequences

For a pilot to try, and or learn, any category of maneuver, they're going to have to practice them before they commit to the class. Integrated rollers certainly fall into that category. I've...

RE: 2015 AMA Sequences

It seems to me that's backwards thinking.

"Masters is the biggest class - let's "fix it" ".

If anything, it's the class that's working best and should be left alone. If you want...

RE: Composite-ARF Integral, kinda build thread

The delam happens on the sides just above the landing gear. I added some carbon cloth in that area just above the gear plate and also mounted support crutches above the landing gear plate. In...

RE: Composite-ARF Integral, kinda build thread

Correction. Add 1/2 degree right thrust, not 1 degree. Everything else I gave you is correct. The half degree is to correct a slight pull to the left at the top of tall verticals.

RE: New Griffin by Xtreme Composite

I have heard of composite wings from various manufacturers failing with them almost seeming to explode in flight. One theory I've heard is that any pinholes in the LE allows the wing to blow up like...

RE: Composite-ARF Integral, kinda build thread

If you leave the stab as is and call that zero, set the wings at 1/2 + to the stab, and the motor at 1/2- to the stab and add 1 degree right thrust, you'll be happy.

RE: Epic Journey

I think .060 is just too thin. I'd bump it up to .084 carbon (some places call it .090). With as much as you're hogging out, the weight gain should be minimal. I'm not aware of anything lighter than...

RE: Power Unlimited longevity

If I fly a set of packs and don't plan to fly again for a few days, I just leave them in that state (20% or more still in packs). If it's going to be a long term storage, I charge them up to storage...

RE: Power Unlimited longevity

I top mine off at a 1-amp rate and have put in anywhere from 90 - 200mah. I wouldn't top off at your normal 1C rate.

RE: Faster way to charge 2X10S packs?

Keeping things cool in the hot summer sun. I got a lot of laughs with it at first, but it really works. The umbrella is a small, 30 year old photographic umbrella I dug out of the closet.

RE: Power Unlimited longevity

That comes under the category of setup. What you're pulling out of the batteries is directly related to how many amps you pull at WOT and your actual throttle useage in flight. There's actually a lot...

RE: Power Unlimited longevity

Never discharge the batteries more than 80% of their capacity.

Make sure you have adequate cooling in your setup with at least twice the amount of air exit area than air inlet opening in your...

Joe, I agree with Archie's comments.

Not commenting on any particular brand of batteries, my experience after nine years of flying electric leads me to expect 100 cycles on a set of packs...
