RE: Getting out wrinkles

yes, you can use a standard iron, but if it shrinks (which it will likely do), some of the colored glue may get onto your clothes iron, leaving your mom/wife very angry when she goes to iron...

RE: G20 Engine

absolutely do not put metal on the firewall. Especially if you are using 2.4 ghz. If the plane is flying straight at you, and your signal is trying to go through the firewall to the receiver, you...

That's because 16 hours isn't enough time on the wall wart. 16 hours is what you would leave it on for if it were a 4 cell, 700-1000 mah battery. anything larger, either in number of cells or mah...

RE: fuel burn rate/tank size for DA 50

Actually, the ounces on our tanks are volume ounces, not weight ounces, so 4 ounces in volume of gasoline will weigh different than 4 ounces in weight. It will actually weigh more like 3 ounces,...

RE: Flaperon help needed!

Sorry,
I meant to say flaperons induce tip stall. Don't know why I put spoilerons. You are right about the wash-out. To further this discussion just a bit (for the OP of course, I know most of...

RE: Flaperon help needed!

If you have a high pitch prop, that could likely be your problem.
also, you could mix in some spoilerons if you want (upward deflection). This acts to kill the lift. It won't really slow the...

RE: Top Flite At-6 texan arf opinions?

Oh, well then the TF Gold P51 would probably be a bit harrier than the sport Scale ARF's out there.
Also, I'm not sure what exactly the TF ARF Texan is. Is it their Gold kit that they have built? ...

RE: Top Flite At-6 texan arf opinions?

That depends. What P51 are you going to fly? Is it a scale, or sport scale (like the Hanger 9 series). If it is sport scale, it will fly much like any other typical low wing sport plane. If is...

RE: Dual elevator servos on Spektrum...help!

Yes, but with that radio I'm sure you can slave any two channels. I have the same radio at home. I do not, however, have the setup you are referring to, so I've not tried this, but can you not...

RE: How Many Channels

Actually, Spektrum does make radios with more than 7 channels, they just put JR on them, or JR makes radios with less than 8, they put Spektrum on them, any way you want to look at it.

RE: Spektrum DX7 Owners

If the RX battery went dead (or bad) during flight, then how would the rx go into any kind of safe mode? Safe mode only works if the RX still has power. Otherwise, no power/signal is sent to any...

RE: Tips on mounting Saito 125 inverted

You don't need onboard glow if you set it up right. Onboard glow is a crutch. The only reason to use onboard glow is to aid in starting the engine, not to keep it running. You will need some sort...

RE: Quick ?

R600 is discontinued. It was in the same line as the R700, they are basic 6 and 7 channel rx.
Either one of those rx will work, but the R600 is used (no doubt) so make sure you check it out...

RE: did I ruin it?

Your JR radio should turn itself off before ruining the battery. It has a low voltage cut-off at around 8.3 volts, so there is no way you ruined your battery just by leaving the radio on. I'm not...

RE: YS engine suggestion please

The sport will turn a 16X10, 17X8, or 18X6 all at about 9000 plus RPMs. Don't know what you're getting out of your OS, but those are the numbers too compare by. If it's speed you want, get the 140...

RE: OS 46AX advice

RE: Weird Saito 82a behavior.... 4-Stroke gurus, Help please.

14X8 is the prop for the saito 1.00, NOT the .82. A 13X7 is probably right, or 12X8 if you want more pitch. Lean the low end, that is the key to the saito's. they come sloppy rich on the low side,...
