    RE: AirShowRC VERTIGO Rebel

    Greg,

    I think you should just ship the plane to AZ and let Bob Ruff and Mike Pope handle the maiden. Between the two of them it will work out good. Ya know there is lots of talent out here in...

    RE: EDF Predator UCAV from Nitro Planes

    How did the maiden go?

    Has anyone got one of these planes in the air yet?

    The Himax 96 plug and play setup should be a really good match for this plane, 6S, 1300 watts.

    I have constructed and flown three of these birds, they are not good flyers and will tip stall very easy. This is reinforced by various posts in this long thread.

    Laxlife72,

    Congrads on the maiden, it looked good.

    I heard you suggest to your son that he not land the P-51 downwind, he listened just like my son. Typical son, tell him one thing, they do...

    RE: Hangar 9 P-51D Mustang 150 Review/Conversion

    Norm is right on. I'll bet the motor thrust is off, the motor might be angled to the right too far.

    When we make our own motor mounts they have to be perfect, or it knocks the motor alignment...
