RE: Pheonix Extra 330S 60-90 Size

PKa, I just had my first good trimming day last weekend for my replacement Phoenix Extra. It was raining on and off and calm. I was not snapping out of loops, but my new build sure was "wonky" at...

RE: Pheonix Extra 330S 60-90 Size

Hey Wrangler 1, just reading your post now, sorry about the delayed response. If you can find a metric nylon bolt to match the thread in the wing's blind nut, which is an M6 x 1.25mm pitch when I...

PS, Wrangler, if that's your first covering job- you are a natural. It is a tough skill to master, especially on light (flimsy) structures like the belly of this bad boy. You pull too hard here, it...

RE: Pheonix Extra 330S 60-90 Size

Ameyam, if the wing is bolted to the fuse sides as when it was new, and the wing still can shift, I would suggest that you take the wing off and see if the tube can move relative to the fuselage,...

THAT looks like a 4 stroke muffler extension that may actually just stay on, Wrangler!
One neat advantage of brass is that its thermal expansion is closer to aluminum than, for example steel.
