RE: FPV SURVEY

Did not get one yet but am glad to hear that apparently the AMA is considering doing something about FPV. I personally don't think it should be done as a "modelling activity". It's just too big of an...

RE: Parkzone Extra 300: Performance too high for my skill level

Keep it and get it set up "correctly". I have been flying a long time and this is by far the most fun electric foamy that I have flown. It is an excellent pattern/IMAC type of flyer. Not a good 3d'er...

RE: 3w 106 Question

Not sure if this might be part of the problem but thought I'd mention. Some 3W's had the "engine gurgling" syndrome when flying and rolling. It was found that the original reed block had a few areas...

RE: DA/3W/ZDZ RCexl ignition conversion kits

Looks good!! A nice and simple holder. A nice snug fit around the wire and sensor even without glue. If and when I have to "mount" an RCexcel ign onto an engine....I'll def be looking for these.

RE: New (to me) internet myth

INTERESTING....I "cooked" the cylinders on an old 3W 140 two years ago and did not notice any "pinkening" of the cylinders. I have noticed this on DA's though. My 3W was in a Trueworthy Pitts M12....

RE: Faulty Ignition – NOT!

How are the magnets "glued" into the hub? How do you remove an existing one and "attach" a new one? I have an old 3W 140 that I overheated and "cooked" the cylinders on. The prop hub on this engine...
