RE: Reprogramming a Futaba display & 2.4ghz antenna?

I don't like having the antenna hanging off the back of the Tx; I think it looks cheap and like a quick fix to the antenna issue. I do agree that it is easier to see the display while on its back...

RE: gas reduction gear system

You could try something like this. This is about a 3:1 ratio and I origionally ran it on a Ryobi 31cc. I didn't have it balanced well so I made a starter out of the belt and pulleys. I think I...

RE: Can Funtana 90 take a SPE 26CC Gas motor
