RE: 3D flying

Stick with the foamies at first because it's not a matter of IF you are going to crash, it's a matter of WHEN you are going to crash. That's just the facts when it comes to learning to 3D. If at all...

RE: Engine noise

I respect your opinion greatly, however I must make a point about modern radio/ignition component separation. I've posted pictures on this forum of my 40 size GP Super Sportster with it's converted...

RE: My DLE 55 does not like to pull fuel to the carb after it sets for a while.

Reeds, plumbing problems, bearing seals leaking, in no particular order.

RE: What size tank on a DLE55?

Agreed Jim, some need the 20oz tank or cut back to 8 to 9 minute flights until the break-in is complete.

RE: Walbro experts needed

AV8TOR's advice is great and one thing to add, the little butterfly plates are cheap from Walbro. Like around 2 bucks each. I bought several when I modified my last one.

RE: DLE Stickers

In post #21, that's not an apple with a plane in the middle? Just aft of the DLE sticker it appears to be an Apple with a plane in the center with a splatter below it.

RE: DLE 55 performance/reliability ?

RE: Hitec X4 programing NiCd in Auto

RE: HELP funtana 125 dle30

I'll try to measure the CG on mine. It's got a DLE30 too and I did not move my firewall. Yes, if it is just a touch tail heavy it takes some effort to get it on the ground. For the wing area this...
