    Thanks,
    Vasa doesn't send the fans with the mounting tabs installed, I'm guessing so that each builder can mount them as they wish, but sends them loose. I'll have to attach them myself, but I'm...

    RE: T-REX 100-What is It

    They're called either contacts, or pins. I'm not sure if the Trex 100 connector is proprietary to Align, which would make them hard to find, but from the pictures I've seen, they look like micro,...

    RE: Futaba T8U Transmitter

    Are you trying to set up the flaps to drop with a switch instead of using the knob? If so, it can be done, but it's a rather complicated "offset" pmix. It's described in Don Edberg's book on the 8U,...
