Perfect choice on the engines Rav. I'm running P-140's now on mine and actually have them dialed down to about 25 1/2 lbs thrust (116,500 max rpm). Plenty of thrust for scale flying and easier to...

I'm using the regular Dual Action Valve for all 3 gear on my big Havoc with no problems. The HV version would certainly not be worth the extra $100 on that jet. On the other hand, some scale jets...

ZB,
How is this different from the setup described by Goose in the previous post? By "satellite" I assume you mean another receiver such as a Rex900?

Kinda funny that they refer to this as a "LiFe Servo". Just another way of saying it's rated for 6.6V (which they also say). It's not like the electrons coming out of an A123 battery are different or...

Who is this guy? I would like to see his fingers on the sticks when he's doing those super fast rolls on-the-deck rolls and in loops. Doesn't seem possible. I must be getting old.
