I think a significant part of the 45 upline before is for altitude control. Otherwise, you would be diving during a bottom of the box maneuver, so putting it on a 45 upline helps keep the bottom no...

You will need to use a point mix. Then choose the point where the throttle stick is at its lowest point and add your mix at that point. If you run dual elevator servos, you need to make sure the +...

There has never been and still is not a 400' limit for model aircraft. It came from the original AC-9157 in 1981 and was updated this year. It is still only an advisory circular. It has been a...

I would tone the rates down a little for Sportsman. 10 degrees on ailerons elevator. Then you will need high rate rudder for stall turns.

I've had a chance over the last couple of weeks to finally install and play with the ignition in my Galactik. So far very happy. I spent most of the year running straight glow with the 20.5X10, but...

Make sure that you support the plug wire to the intake. If you don't, it can put extra stress on the plug. Once I started tying off the ignition wire, many of those problems went away.

No. Talking to Richard earlier this year. You will basically go down one prop size. Advantage is great reduced fuel cost. For max performance you will still want the stock 1.85 or the CDI...

It could also be you are nose heavy. You should be able to do a reasonable rate 1/2 roll on an up line with no rudder. Especially with the size of today's pattern planes. Even on a 4pt roll, you...

Scott is a good friend of mine, but I will disagree with him here. There is no reason to use rudder on one roll, especially with today's airplanes. You don't even need it on 3 rolls. The idea of...

Agree with the guys above. Years ago we did maneuvers like this with planes that were not up to what we have today. Even 20 years ago, planes were noticeably faster, but we still managed to do this...

Yes, they are the same. It was initially a collaboration between them. Comp ARF was all composite and you could get foam wings and stabs through zn line.

I would go with the Vanquish. Great flying plane. The Sequence is nice, but is a little smaller and setup more for 8S. Vanquish is hard to beat.
