Very old thread, but just in case someone reads it, I never experienced a tail structure failure or lost the aircraft. Mine was sold to a buyer in CA a number of years back. Remove one from the tail...

I checked the seal in more detail. It doesn't look like an o-ring, or even removable. Not sure if its serviceable. I sent an e-mail to Airworld, lets see if I get any response. Hopefully, I won't...

If its the hole I think you are looking at, very prominent in the photo, that is the air pressure inlet for pushing the piston up and retracting the gear. But it could be used for both, assembly and...

Air retracts - rebuild, o-rings, leaks, and sourcing parts

I have a leak in one of my Airworld L-39 1:5 landing gear (left wing). The leak only occurs when the gear is up, and is leaking from the seal around the actuating arm/shaft. See photo below

I agree. I've been in and out of the hobby over the last 30 years, glow to giant scale, helicopters to turbines. There is always something that draws me back in over and over, and its not just the...

Being a helicopter, the wind doesn't effect it as much. Being a large helicopter, helps even more. I'm not sure I would have flow a plane in that wind, unless it was one that I wouldn't be devastated...

Boston Blizzard Fly-In, only two pilots showed up and flew (video)

We hosted the first ever Boston Blizzard Fly-In on Sunday during blizzard Neptune. Only two (crazy) pilots showed up to fly despite the horrible conditions. 25-30mph winds with gusts to 55mh, -20F...

RE: Storage charge mode pointless or what?

Storage mode is basically to set the battery to 50% of its charged capacity. If you are only running your batteries down to 50%, you are effectively flying them down to storage mode, so no need for...

RE: Ipad Apps. Universal remote control?????

That would be nice, but the iPad doesn't have the hardware required in order to do that. Perhaps Apple should think about this, and start including the emitters in order to do so.

RE: Funkey MD500 flybar hits fuselage

Its not an issue as stated. When I'm bored, I'll fly the T-Rex/MD500 combo inverted, do stationary flips/rolls, etc, with it, and never had an issue with the flybar hitting. I need to be careful that...

RE: South Florida movie job

I've done similar work for tv commercials, and it can be a lot of fun but stressful as well. I'm not in Miami or I would jump on this, but for those that are in the area its definitely worth talking...

RE: ignition redundancy

I would worry about that solution being less reliable than a simple dual battery and switches. Batteries rarely just fail in flight. Over the last 10-12 years, using probably hundreds of batteries in...

RE: ignition redundancy

If you spend most of your time hovering, there could be some minimal merit to the idea. I personally don't know of a single pilot that does, but then again someone had to be the first to run...
