Electric retracts

I would recommend staying away from the electric retracts if possible. We went through 3 tail wheel actuators and had to send one of the mains in for getting stuck half way up. All this after only 18...

Hi Tim,

We've got about 20 flights on ours with the stock Evo 77 on glow. It develops more power as it breaks in, but from the models I've seen, it seems the big 3 cyl Saito's perform much...

Chroner,

Thank you for your input on the TW actuator. I'll definitely get inside the little bugger and make sure things are as they should be as I'll probably lose my mind if another has issues....

chorner,

I would imagine your engine mods are a huge gain. We're running 7.5% nitro, 10% oil, and the rest alcohol. Also, I'm curious.. what was Robart's proposed do it yourself fix for the...

I agree most of the frustration stems from the gear issues. There are some quality issues that can be remedied and overlooked, but should we have to for a plane at this price? There were three of...

Hi all. I'm new to the thread and haven't read through everything here yet, but figured I'd share my experiences with this plane at 18 flights in hopes that my comments may help someone here.

Hi Guys,

RE: Please ID this plane: (BRAND)

Every indication leads me to that. There were a few companies overseas that sold Pilot/EZ models more recently, but I've been unable to find anymore info on this one online.

Pilot/OK Models - EZ series

(Not to be confused with the Pilot company that builds aerobatic ARF's in China or Pilot-1 distributed by Hobby Lobby.)

RCSpectator, Thank you for dropping by and showing us pics of your friends Skymaster. It looks great with the gear up. Now we know of two that have flown. ;)

RE: **Seagull Nemesis** The need for speed build thread!!

We used Macs almost exclusively. I like that you aren't using a muffler and going with straight pipes. That exactly what we did and you will LOVE the sound. Macs makes pipes for the DLE 30 about...

We figured the red ones were meant to be pushrod exits for the two rudders and the elevator. We replaced them with better looking ones from our LHS. I really liked your idea of very tiny...

Free Bird,

I like that color scheme, real classy! That should be fairly easy to accomplish without removing a lot of covering. I think you'll be happy with the personal touches.

RE: Seagull Model Cessna 337 ARF

Don,

No, We didn't have issues with the rear cowl width, it fit pretty well that way. If you push it further up on the fuse will it help or is there still too much gap? You could always add a...

Good point about the axles. We went with Dubro as well. It's a shame that some of these companies don't spend a little more time choosing quality hardware for their planes instead of wasting money...
