    Looking good! I have a DLE30 in a 3DHS Edge. I really like the DLE. I have a Xoar 18x8 on it and the throttle response is fantastic. I think it will turn a 19x8 but I don't need any extra speed on...

    Wow! No I did not know it was that heavy. I was looking at the specs listed above. It showed 13.5 pounds. If the 18 pounds is closer to reality than the 35 RA would be my pic. I have 84" span Extra...

    Ed I think the 1.20 would fly it fine. It is not going to have unlimited vertical but Mustangs are pretty sleek and you should get good speed out of it. I had a kit built P-51 back in the day from GP...

    Those are both 90-1.20s. Either that or my friend was much shorter than I remember.

    Start with the Apprentice

    I have to brag about this electric trainer form Horizon. I have flown and trimmed one for someone but he did the assembly. Yesterday I worked with 18 - 6th and 7th graders who are in a program called...

    2041888I would not talk bad about another man's work or talk down to anybody. But these kinds of stripes can be tricky and I am really picky. The plane on the left is mine. The one on the right...

    The Mustang at Reno was lost too flutter when the trim tab let loose. Thing go bad quick at 500MPH.

    Building the nose for an inverted mount should be easy on that plane. You could get different balsa for the hood sides and top and just make them longer. Or use the chin block up there and carve it...

    I would do the DLE 20RE which is the rear exhaust. Since the plane is not built you could build the opening on the bottom of the fuse instead of the top and have a nice package. The 90/120 comes with...

    You are a craftsman sir. That exhaust work is top notch. There are some videos of P-51s with the Keleo exhaust on you tube. They are much like yours and have a unique sound.

    Nice Bird!! just remember to fly it like a warbird and you will be fine. You might tinker with flap setting with gear down about halfway through the first flight. Just get 100' up and go gear down...

    I don't have the patience for those scale projects lol . Looks good though. Glad you got it worked out. Pass on the house :-)

    funnotcrazy. Sometimes it just takes a second set of eyes. Be carefull not to pinch the O ring where the intake tube goes into the head. After you pull those two screws you can swivel the carb and...

    Don't know what the Du-bro adapter looks like and the U turn works at times. You can also use an extra servo arm. Mount the servo arm to the front of the mount or side of the fuse using the hole that...

    Only seen a few planes that would ever do it. You need at least 2.5:1 power to weight ratio. Your bipe may have plenty of power but not that kind of power. Most of the planes that will do a climbing...

    John gave you the best advice. But let me add. I have seen this happen on 6 channel radios when the rudder got plugged into channel 5 by mistake. 5 is the gear channel for retracts and it will do...

    I have not had any muffler issues, but the stock 30 muffler is pretty light. It can't weigh more than a few ounces. I can see why someone might have an issue, but I have not. I have a Pitts for mine...

    Inverted is fine as stated above. I have both of these. The 35 is a little stronger of course, but mine feels smoother. The two are not on the same airframe so it's hard to tell for sure but there is...

    Just took another person to make the light bulb go off for me. I was forgetting it would mount inverted and the mount would be above it. DUH.

    Thanks for taking the time, David

    DLE 20Rear exhaust clear mount

    Can't tell in the pictures, are the two exhaust tips on the new rear exhaust DLE20 narrower than the beam mounts? I am going to convert a glow plane to gas that uses a stock glass beam mount and want...

    This is done all the time on a profile plane. Mostly because the RX is in the fuse and the battery is in the wing. We plug the male end of the Y into the RX. One female end goes to an AILE servo,...

    It looks like a scratch built. I say that because the two booms the engines mount too look exactly like the front fuse section but turned back words. Just a guess.

    acdii, I hope you can find something to fit your needs. In the future on your electric planes. Always use a timer. Start out on the conservative side and sneak up on the limit 30 seconds at a time....
