    Is there a chart or writeup somewhere that goes through these trim tests, what to look for, and the best sequence of steps? I've seen a few write-ups but they do not seem consistent, especially in...

    The control electronics I mentioned are related to the roll, pitch and yaw sensors that make current quad-copters so stable. Without those, the craft is essentially uncontrollable.

    Short flight! Did his batteries run out, or his courage?

    A number of these were built years ago using gasoline engines. Control electronics were not adequate then and engines can't respond fast...

    This looks identical to one I have. I'm ready to throw it out as the blades lose their sharpness quickly and, even worse, no matter how tight you make the clamp, the blades still move around when you...

    Thanks. I do buy some woodworking tools from them but their saws are for wood, not metal.

    He may have been referring to their junior hack saw. I have one and it works well, but the kerf is too wide and the teeth are not fine enough for cutting thin sheet metal. thanks for the tip, though.

    Good Quality Razor Saw

    Who makes a good quality razor saw that cuts on the pull stroke and can cut brass, aluminum and mild steel (e.g. small bolts)? I have an old Zona saw that I've used for 30 years and have finally worn...

    I use a 15x6 APC on the 100 in my WM Chippie. All the speed and thrust I could ever want. (maybe should have said "need")

    I just twist a piece of paper towel into a cone and put it in the carb. I used to use plastic caps but kept losing the few I had that fit. Paper towels are always available.

    Love the built-up fuselage. Was that original on the Kaos? Definitely a way to keep the weight down and the balance forward.

    Another possibility is that the transmitter antenna was pointing directly at the plane. This seems to be more of a problem when the plane is close to the ground. Been there, done that, suffered the...

    It did not crash into the spectators, but rather hit the runway. Spectators were hit by debris. A buddy of mine was there and was sprayed with fuel, but not injured.

    I prefer the sliders as I can keep my fingers on the sticks on the approach. Saved my plane more than a few times.

    That looks like a good one! Nice and compact and a better wiring setup than the one I use (that is no longer available). Would be nice if the LED were remote.

    I'll use the two that are matched for ailerons and the others for rudder and elevator. The 3114 only come with two "X" arms and only one will work in this application. I'll live with it.
