    I too am a big fan of Fox glow plugs. I like the Fox RC Long with idle bar for most of my two-strokes; they don't need the idle bar, but the plug is medium-hot like an O.S. #8 plug, and the idle bar...

    NiMH batteries are generally very stable and safe. That having been said, NiMH batteries can smoke/burn, although not usually with the same fireworks of a LiPo battery. One of my flying buddies had...

    With your extended control surfaces and your larger-than-recommended engine selection, you might want to go with higher-torque servos for the control surfaces. Hitec HS-485 or Futaba S3010 are two...
