    RE: GP Shoestring Power Recommendation

    Just check out the videos for the plane. Flights go for about 8 minutes from what they've told me, and there is TONS of power ;)

    RE: 3rd plane

    I think a 25 sized electric is a bit big as a third model. You might want to give a 3D foamy a go, hone your skills in a bit before you step into a larger model ;)

    RE: Servo mounting for 3D

    IMO, putting the servos about 2-3" behind the wing on most foamies yields a better moving foamy. More mass around the tail will allow it to whip around better in spins ;)

    RE: Is a Foamie a Good Second Plane?

    I'm going against a foamy as a 2nd plane. Firstly, because a foamy will go where you point it: you roll it over, it will stay there, not self correct itself. You accidentally pull up and it'll go in....
  7. RE: Yak 54 Indoor Foamy. What should i buy?

    I'm using a 25 amp controller because that is what I bought, and it was before Castle Creations came out with the ThunderBird line of ESC's, so the Phoenix 25 was the smalles I could find, that was...
  8. RE: Yak 54 Indoor Foamy. What should i buy?

    Well, how about pushing the envelope a bit farther, and getting a foamy made for indoors and outdoors?

    The DW Foamies Yak 54 38" is perfect for larger gyms, and is perfect for outdoor flying....
  9. RE: First RC-Ducted Fan jet! Please advise!

    My First EDF jet was a Phase 3 Fantom, with a 56mm X-Fan, brushless motor and brushless ESC. Flew pretty well, and got going pretty good. I did have plenty of flying experience behind me though, so...

    RE: looking to build new plane have ?

    Check out a DW Foamies Yak 54 38". Excellent flying plane, with pretty much no coupling, no wing rock, and hovers very easily. Setup light enough, it will fly indoors easily, inside a gym, but this...

    RE: Electro Dust

    Well, I'd try to go with 2:1 power to weight ratio. More power, higher speed, and insane vertical :D Looks clean too.

  13. RE: need advice-getting back in after 20 years

    Just remember that after 20 years, your fingers won't know what to do for a few minutes, so flying high will help.

    Should be able to do all the stuff you used to do in only a few flights, since...

    RE: Newbe at 3d electric flyiing

    Outrunners have the outer casing that rotates, therefore producing more torque, eliminating the need for a gearbox, which can be noisy and adds weight. Inrunners have higher rpms, and lower torque,...
  15. RE: Bought blade400- doesnt work out of the box

    Also, the charger comes with aligator clips because it was intended to either plug into a 12v power suppy, or your vehicles 12v battery. Don't worry about draining the battery, because you can get...
  16. RE: ANY GOOD ELECTRIC 3D BIPES OUT THERE

    DW Foamies Skua. Very good with 3D, and is bigger ten your average foamy bipe (expect maybee Lee's bipe). Also, it can handle winds real well, where your lighter models would be grounded. I's...

    RE: Throttle trim on jeti 77

    Too much rpm? Sounds like you're over amping the ESC, and therefore need to go down a size in prop, or need to go up in ESC size.

    RE: ARF Foamie?

    ^Wow, if I had the money, I'd get all of your foamies :D

    RE: Best new 3-D indoor foamy?

    Doubtful. It is bad with hovering and knife edge. It's just to mess around with.

    If you're wanting indoor flying, the Pocket Knife bipe, as well as the Facy Foam indoor planes are the best....

  22. RE: how to convert/mount brush to brushless???

    Maxx Prod sells all of their sub 250 watt outrunners with stick mounts. Might be owrth a try to get an HC2812-840 motor for it. Also, don't forget about the controller, and batteries ;)

    RE: Diving Into Electrics

    I would get the Castle Creations BEC, because you can't get any higher quality.

    Also, you should be good running a 3 cell 2100-3200 mah lipo.

    And as for receivers, any Hitec RCD receiver,...
  25. RE: I need a foamy replacement for my Mini Ultra Stick

    Yes, the brio requires the softest landings possible, or you will damage the front end. It does however fly very well, but in the hands of a beginner 3D pilot, it is not very forgiving.
