    For both I would suggest a CG of 30% MAC. Throws and expo are a personal taste thing but for starters you can try 30 degrees on aileron, 15 degrees on elevator and 30 degrees on rudder. Expo can be...

    I would run Savox 1258TG servos on everything. The 7955's are good but overkill. The 5645MG should be given to a warbird pilot.

    Two most important keys to epoxy resins, correct mix ratio, keep above 70 degrees. An epoxy that gets soft in the sun tells quite a lot. First it may not have been mixed at the correct ratio, it may...

    I can't say for sure on this particular install but on all Carf Yaks I have seen the kit includes a block off plate that installs into the cowl that only has openings for air to enter in front of the...

    Yes you were, I was off the grid last week due to work travel but was able to get MJDs kit in the mail prior to leaving. I'm looking forward to getting feedback from him. The Sacramento area modelers...

    This issue really has nothing to do with cowl pressures. What is happening is that you are adjusting the engine to what you see on the ground and not what you are seeing in the air. Adjust to what...

    IMO this is the best option but there is an easier way. Take the new canopy, wax it up with some mold release wax on the inside, shoot some fuel proof paint (not black) like Klass Koat and then lay a...

    I don't even want to know what Kimo has been doing to Joe with his thumbs. Kinda makes sense that Kimo may need a 115WS to be competitive in silver.....

    Looks like an old R/C America Giles 202. You won't find a direct replacement. If you can find a cowl for a Midwest 202 it may be something you can work with.

    Running with the choke butterfly closed is an indication that you have an air leak someplace. It may also be causing you to not be able to richen the mixture.

    while this does not affect everyone, some events require that you have a positive means of shutting down the engine should a radio failure occure. IMO this will eventually be something that all AMA...

    I would have to say that anything less then 100cc I would be inclined to use a single battery as well. I have done the 3 battery setups on 150cc airplanes and maintaining that many batteries is a...
