RE: The times, they are a changin! Say it ain't so Joe?

I'll add my $.03 (adjusted for inflation and exchange rates). There are many reasons why I dont fly anywhere near as often as i used to. My situation is unique to me, but Im sure many have similar...

RE: Traveling with a sailboat.

You can also try a hard sided golf club carrying case. Cut out foam to fit the hull, mast, rudder and keel. Seawind guys have been using those for a couple years with great success.

RE: small drum wheel for Hitec sailwind HS-785HB

The seawind is designed for an arm servo, specifically the futaba 3801. It is just slightly larger than a standard sized case. A hitec 765 is a direct bolt in instead of the 3801, and has 140...

RE: Need a sailplane identified.

That looks like it should have been fabric covered, and painted a light blueish color.... and that the tail wood would be very very brittle and break at the slightest look..

RE: Spinner for Funtana w/.82

Try a Higley threaded prop washer and a higley or dubro prop nut. Both of them will cost you less than 15.00 total. Not exactly scale in appearance, but will protect you in the event of a backfire,...

RE: Funtana90 video (Kyle)

WA Pilot. I've had great success with an APC 17/6 prop on an older saito 150. I'm at about 700 ft ASL. Mine was in the .60 sized UCD, right about the same weight range (under 9 lbs) It had gobs...

RE: Blender Question...

An inverted flat spin can be entered very softly, from a stall. A blender is a very very VERY violent entry (hence the name). It appears that the plane hits an invisible wall parallel to the...

RE: Blender Question...

Throttle and entry speed also make a difference, as well as direction of the spin. My favorite entry is to point the nose down, 20-25%throttle or less, full right aileron. After couple of rolls to...

RE: Great Planes U Can Do 120 ARF!!!!

I thought the red/white/blue first UCD was 1.20 sized(mine had a saito 150 on it :) Let's hope they move the horizontal stab down to lessen the coupling. If they do that, they could do a plug in...

RE: Hyde mount for a Saito

Brian,

I use only the well nuts and not the fuel tubing. The well nuts are thick enough to be able to bite into the firewall, but soft enough to allow the engine to float some. The key part is...

RE: Hyde mount for a Saito

One or two words of caution on these. I would routinely check the well-nut bolts to make sure they are snug. If you decide to use threadlock on them, make sure it is the removable type (not the red...

RE: Hyde mount for a Saito

Look at www.piedmontmodels.com Lee shows a "cheap" homemade softmount that uses the Dave Brown 4 120FS mount, and neoprene well nuts. I made a similar mount for my Dr J. PHD for a saito 150, and it...

RE: UCD

You can use the CA hinges from Radio South, the 1/4 scale ones. Or you can use pinned hingepoints. Either way, make sure you can seal your hingelines, both sides preferably.
