    I was wondering if you have your retracts yet? Who were you planning to get them from? The nose gear has to rotate correct? Hopefully this will not be a difficult item to source.

    Why is it that you guys completely miss the point? Just as I choose not to associate with certain types of people because I do not want to be brought down by them, I feel the same way about FPV. ...

    Yes, thicker axel wing is required to get the travel needed. I put bungy gear on both my first tripe, and my DVII. I prefer them without a bungee gear. I have replaced the axel though, with 1/4" ...

    Too bad some Johnny come lately type of model is going to drag what we all have been enjoying for years down with it, because there is no clear separation of the types.

    Abu,

    Check this one out. One of our club members has one of these, and it runs great. He has it on a big trainer type model. It would be perfect for a WW1 model. Especially in 1/4 scale. ...

    I feel that the practical designs are perfect for BUSA. They are sort of a blank canvas, scale wise. You can build them stock, or go as far as you want to, with modifications. This makes them very...

    Interesting your die cutting was so so, considering those have to be new dies, as the camel is a new kit. It must have been the wood selected that did not cut well. I have always been impressed...

    Hey Don,

    I am going to guess the catch bottle rule would be for any fuel, not just gasoline. I have heard of this before. Especially when flying at sod farms.

    So to the brotherhood, what will be your next Busa build? Mine will most likely be the 1/6th German offering. Whatever that may be.

    How much will it weigh, and what is the wing area? Those are the keys to figuring out engine size. I am going to guess that the 35 is small. I have a 55 DLE r in my 1/4 Fokker DVII and it is...

    I would not recommend using a NiMh battery for this. You have much better options, and the internal resistance of NiMh batteries is very poor. I would go with a 2300-2600 A123, and then an IBEC. ...
