    RE: Tank newbie looking for help/recomendations

    Thanks Panther G. I have looked through the forums but still wasn't sure about some things. Still not sure if the Panther at Raidentech is the Panther G or not. They have the $70 models that I...

    RE: Tank newbie looking for help/recomendations

    Sorry to interrupt, but any feedback on the possible tank choices listed a few posts up?

    Anyway, my son and I have narrowed it down to the Pershing Snow Leopard, M41A3Bulldog and German Panther...

    RE: Tank newbie looking for help/recomendations

    I have plenty of extra NIMH batteries...old GP3300's that will work just fine, so the upgraded battery is not a concern as long as the tank has S&S and hopefully the metal motor. (I don't understand...

    RE: Tank newbie looking for help/recomendations

    Hi everybody.
    I am not new to RC (have nitro and electric trucks, build my own NIMH and A123 batteries) but I am new to tanks.
    I am looking for a tank for my 6 year old son. From what I can see,...

  7. RE: What is the fastest Traxxas Stampede motor as upgrade?

    I am looking to go brushless myself, and I was surprised how much prices have come down on a fairly decent system. Several good reviews of the EZRUN systems by Hobbywing, and they are cheap. You...

    RE: Soldering TRX connectors

    I'd be careful about using that kind of flux. I was warned not to use any of the plumbing type flux on electrical connections because it contains acids that are bad for electrical connections. ...

    Agreed. I like the curves as much as the next guy, but there are plenty of other web pages for that. This does not mean that I am against using one of the lovely females instead of that kid. ...

    you made perfect sense before, but the manual confirms what I thought you were saying. I'm not sure if it is off. I'll have to check that. Does it make that much difference? I'm still thinking it...

    To all those who replied to my trim issue it is not a matter of the length of the rod. It is the issue that after trimming the plane relatively straight in the air and then landing, the rudder is...

    I think the drinking thing was misinterpreted. The drinking problem I have is that I have no time for it (drinking), which is the same problem I have with RC (no time). I do manage to go fly or run...

    Thanks. Didn't get out today, but maybe tomorrow I will sneak a flight in. I'm always so hopeful that any given day could be one that I might have time to fly, then inevitably life gets in the way....

    RE: Official Hobbyzone Firebird Phantom Thread!

    the eBay ones went for more than I was willing to bid. They still went for cheap, but I wan't convinced they were what I needed. I figured if I got them for my low bid, then what the heck.

    Just to clarify, the rudder did go into spastic uncontrolled movement to the right. I checked the trim before flying and it was dead on straight. I had the antenna fully out and the plane was only...

    Thanks Downunder. That's exactly what I was thinking. If it is interference at the other site, then problem is solved by going to a new site. Also, if the fuse is not usable now then another...

    I just checked the HZ parts list. I have been calling it the wrong thing. It was the firewall that busted, the thing that the motor and gearbox attach to. You can buy them for a whopping $1.79. ...

    Well, I just got done with the repairs. Packing tape and hot glue seems to have repaired the fuse and the wing. I took epoxy to the mount and we will let that set up for a day or two. I think it...

    Also, make sure that your time is set perfectly as well, on your transmitter, as well on your plane. I made a big mistake by not checking that on my T-28 Trojan, and nearly nose dived like 10 times. ...

    RE: 2 or 3 channel plane for very young flyer?

    OK. Sounds like some good advice. I just wanted a plane that would react better than the Aero Ace jet. Maybe an Aero Ace Biplane or sportflyer or the mini xpv is the way to go. I think the bip...

    Does anybody know if the original Firebird and Firebird II are the same plane as the Phantom? I know the Firebird comes in several flavors now, but which is closest to these older versions?

    I was actually looking at the older Firebird and Firebird II. A guy is selling some right now on eBay and thought I might be able to get them for cheap and have a decent beginner plane.

    RE: 2 or 3 channel plane for very young flyer?

    How about a Slo-v or Slow-stick? These look like decent hobby grade stuff. Slow enough and stable enough so maybe a younger flier could handle them.
