    You can make things very easy on yourself by using a threaded control horn on the rudder. The DuBro kit is good quality and is what I used on my 50cc Extra. I used a 3 inch long servo arm for direct...

    I've had good luck with Gens Ace and Power Wing Lipo batteries. You can go either way on whether or not to use an external battery. If you buy a good quality ESC with a high enough capacity BEC,...

    If the cable rubs that effectively shortens the cable if it's any more than just a touch. It's the same effect as when you grab the cable with your fingers and pull. So a rubbing cable can foul up a...

    This whole thread has me confused. You got a little hole and you need a big hole. Run the drill bit that's the size you need into the little hole and call it done. It's a 5 second operation that...

    5th scale is around 80 inches, right? I'm running a heavy 80 inch Cub with a Saito .72, and it's powered perfectly. I can get off the ground in about 25 feet if I want to, and the engine will pull it...

    That's assuming your amp measurements were correct. I've never used a clamp type meter on RC gear, so I can't comment on how accurate they are for our purposes. What more likely though is that you...

    Well you were running more prop than the manufacturer recommends, so yes, it's entirely possible you fried your motor. Of course, it's also possible that you got a defective motor or speed...

    I've gotten to the end of a bottle that's taken a while to use up and had running troubles. But, of course, that's opened fuel. It doesn't usually work very well to store a 1/2 used gallon of fuel...

    The way I've been adding lead for the last few years is to hammer it flat and CA it on to the covering. It never gets noticed, it doesn't affect the aerodynamics of the plane, and it never falls off....

    You'll have no trouble running that plane on a 9 channel radio as long as it has the programming that you want. If you have dual elevator servos it'll take 6 channels for basic control, a 7th if you...

    Just run the drill through the hole. Unless the material is harder on one side than on the other, it will center itself.

    Ah, that fixed it. I was using Chrome, and everything looks normal again. I should have thought of that myself.

    The programming options usually found on the bigger radios is the draw for many of us I think. I see a lot of guys using 12 channel systems to fly mostly 4-5 channel planes because they like the...
  14. RCU is completely jacked up on my screen

    Images are missing, the front page formatting is all messed up, and drop down menus give me text only. When I get into the forum, the images are still missing but I can read the text.

    If you want the best Rx packs, get A123 packs from www.hangtimes.com. You'll need an inexpensive A123/ LiFe capable charger for them, but the amp capacity, weight, and durability can't be beat. A...

    I started the baffle thread quite a while ago when I first started flying pattern. I still run that engine exactly as configured in the thread, and it's a screamer. I've since learned how to tune it...

    Brushed electric motors do wear out, especially cheap ones. ESCs can cause a slow down if they are failing, and of course a failing battery or bad connector can cause a voltage drop under load which...

    JollyPopper- There is one more thing left behind after the methanol evaporates: water. And frankly, I don't buy that any of the fuel components evaporate quickly at all. After all, the crankcase of...

    Hairspray is easy, cheap, and works just fine. There really is no reason to make it more complicated than that. The first coat can raise the grain a little on balsa, so you may sometimes have to do a...

    It's still smart to use an after run oil. Even when you've run the engine until it won't start again, there is still fuel in it. It doesn't take much water to rust unprotected metal. The transmission...
