I'm no longer active in the hobby. It's an expensive kit to build, just for giggles. I don't even own a single servo or radio anymore. With the recent AMA and FAA changes, it's doubtful I willl...

+1

We should have made the drone flyers "non grata" in our hobby when the first ones started flying outlaw and with FPV equipment. We were apathetic to our own demise.

Question We should have policed ourselves better?

Given the way the AMA has appeared to have caved on the "drone" designation and now the FAA seems to be requiring registration......... has it crossed anybody's mind that maybe we should have policed...

RE: SeamusG - R.I.P.

He was a SUPERB kit builder. Even when he had only been in the hobby less than 2yrs, the kits he built made most other guys' kits look like paper mache' airplanes built by a kindergarten kid. As...

RE: Questions Regarding Older Zenoah Engine

How about that? Ralph did that conversion years ago and he is STILL offering to replace the ignition if it doesn't work today years later and at least 2 owners later.

Way to go Ralph!!

RE: Instructions for tearing down a gas engine

2-stroke gas engines aren't that complicated. If you can tear down a glow engine, you can also do a gasser. If you CAN'T tear down a glow engine - then send your gas engine to a professional.

RE: Do any of you guys use vibration dampening mounts 50cc?

they're called wings. ;)

I was taught to NEVER start a gas powered plane without the wings attached. They act as a vibration dampener. The guy who told this to me was a...

RE: Zenoah GT-80 2 blade prop selection

I don't think you can buy an Ultra prop anymore. Maybe, but I ain't been able to find one for a couple years.

Honestly, I would run a GT-80 on a 23-10 prop for break in. Thats a 2-blade that...

RE: Got a 30cc engine?

I don't know. To me, it's an Extra300. Single seat. Mid lowish wing. I 'try' to 3D. I'm not very good. But this little plane is the most capable airframe under 80cc that I've personally ever...

RE: Got a 30cc engine?

I'm flying the 3DHS 72" 330SC (blue/red/whute version) with a DLE30. Xoar 20-6 prop.

It's small compared to what I'm used to flying, but it's very capable when it comes to 3D flight.
