RE: Red Wing Sbach profile

Yes, and be sure to add the tristock to back the motor mount up. The pieces are not big but apparently they make a significant difference. You'll like the build. Very nice. Pushrods are great! Why...

RE: OUTLAW from EXTREME FLIGHT

Has anyone powered an outlaw with a .25 sized motor? Does the balance work out better? Do aerobatics improve? What size props have you used and what kind of speeds do you see? I'm looking more to...

RE: Nitro to Electric Information

Big Art Adamisn did them a number of years ago but could not find takers. Course a fox is not a competative motor today, but the difference is stunning. Just be sure not to use an electric pusher...

RE: Precision Aerobatics Ultimate or Zero Gravity Pitts?

I have considerable experience with the Zero Gravity. It requires a lot of patience to get to fly decent. Lots of mixes required. Once I got them figured out the it has been a decent little plane. In...

RE: Turnigy C42-60 for 3D Flying

The 42-60 is a real torque monster. Its a really good motor. I find the over square outrunners ie longer than diameter have real good torque and work very well in 3D mode.

I have flown Turnigy...

RE: how to do no bubble monocote on sheeting?

I used balsarite once and it made a mess of the plane. It seemed very thick and the brush strokes it left were horrible. I tried to sand it and it just gunked the paper. Is it supposed to be thinned...

RE: how to do no bubble monocote on sheeting?

What is the proper way to use a woodpecker? How smooth do you sand prior to using it? How hard do you push or how far into the wood? Do you sand afterwards?
