    I challenge this statement. Do you have that in writing from an official spec from Futaba?

    He didn't say what receiver he uses but did say it was a T7C transmitter and that bulletin seems to be associated with a 6014 receiver which I don't believe he is using.

    I don't believe that will work. He needs to get fuel through the carb and let it get to the engine from there.
    This is caused by one of two things. Either your fuel and vent lines are backwards, or...

    Yep thats the Giant one. In my opinion Stingers fly just like an Ugly Stick. Maybe slightly more aerobatic but not much. The extremely large constant chord wing with the very thick airfoil allows for...

    Which Stinger kit do you have? If it is the Giant that 35 may not be big enough. A Stinger is esentially a fancy Ugly Stick anyways in my opinion and a Stinger is already pretty floaty.
