Mariok,

I loved the footage in your video, but I'm curious about the music on it. Sounds like theme music from a late-80's sitcom. What inspired that?

Chris,

You nailed it with the non-stick wood! Strangest thing! Even the glass easily peels up in the tail area, so now I suspect maybe the wood filler I used is preventing adhesion. This is in...

Ok

Well, I'm not sure then how your post is helpful to me. I was really looking for ideas on a fix here from people experienced with this ARF.

Hi

I'm sure they'll say they have no control over how I assembled it. That seems reasonable to me, too. The structure back there is pretty flimsy, though. ..

Hello....

OK, so I'm at my wit's end with what to do about this new problem.

My stab-to-fuse joint let go after the first or second flight. I noticed cracks in the paint right at the root of...

Hi,

1" is just fine. Better cooling for the fuse, too.

Hi,

Normally, I agree with everything you write, but I definitely think people care--especially other pilots! Actually, I'd even say I know they do, based on their reactions when they find out. ...

Hehe,

Coincidentally, I just looked at their site, and their F-22 Vectored Thrust offering page shows pics of a Yellow Aircraft F-22 VT package. Lovely.

It's kinda funny, but even to this day, every time I have a person approach me at the field and say, "Wow. That's really beautiful!" in reference to the ARF I'm flying, I have the same...

Perhaps.

I talk to a lot of people who see it that way. I kinda think it was the other way around. When I got my first part-time job in a hobby shop, people tended to sometimes shy away when we...

Jonbass,

None of what I said is meant to make you (or any other newbie) feel discouraged. I spent a good portion of my life cultivating new hobbyists and teaching newbies to build and fly. In...

Bummer...

But how many of you true modelers can deny the lamentation you felt when you saw Top Gun open up to ARF's? Or on all of the fawning and genuflecting guys on this site do for guys that...

Hi,

On this ARF, with the belly-pan already attached and such, what would a wing incidence adjustment look like?

HI

Have any of you had issues with stab incidence? My bird required a ton of up-trim, even when it was tail-heavy.

Chris,

Yeah, good obs! Normally, I'm all over my rudder. I never touched rudders on models until I learned to fly full-scale. Now my left thumb is as active as the right. On that maiden, I...

Yeah,

On the next flight, I'll go out and do a FOD-walk. I went in to fix the tail-wheel mount. Pretty shocking how flimsy everything is back there. I was able to pop the cracked rails loose by...

Hi,

So I finally did the maiden on Sunday. The flight was OK. I've been flying that Phoenix Spit for so long that I got used to warbirds flying like trainers, so the first few minutes were a...

Chris,

I have it on the right slider, and not slaved to anything. Frankly, I thought they'd be decorative. I was pretty surprised at how much of a difference they made on the temps.

Hi

I'm only using the Spektrum one that goes around the engine fins and connects to the temp port on the telemetry receiver.

Those cowl flaps, btw, were a pain to build BUT with my temp sensor on, the degrees drop fast when you open them.
