RE: Aeromaster & 1.20 Surpass?

I have a giant Aeromaster with a Fox 3.2 gas engine and it flys great. I revamped the servo setup in it and it balanced out with a little weight in the noise. You shouldn't have a problem with it....

RE: MOKI 2.10 props????

If it will run on 0% nitro, why spend extra cash for 5% nitro? It is like buying 92 octane for a car that calls for 87 octane. You are just spending money that you don't have to spend.

RE: MOKI 2.10 props????
