    Spent some time this morning re-reading the FAA interpretation of 336. Personally I find little to disagree with and not being a Chicken Little kind of person see nothing real to fear.

    Two areas...

    Mike, I agree being proactive by asking the governing body to reconsider proposed regulations is a far better approach. If they agree to changes benefiting our model aviation hobby/industry other...

    Now that's funny! Not likely at his time so not to worry.

    I'm not understanding, within this thread, where the FAA is backpedaling, however the current administration certainly leads the way in government agencies not following the law!
  5. Only one airport within 5 miles, another within...

    Only one airport within 5 miles, another within 10 miles, last one is 22 miles. There are some private strips and ag utility strips outside the 5 mile radius to 20 miles. Certainly a change of FBO at...

    Yes it is nice for us but it isn't accidental we have this kind of a relationship with the local airport and ATC. That is not to say it can change towards the negative by the new ruling(s). However I...

    I may be a simple mind but I don't see a boogey man in the FAA's Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft. It is pretty clear to me the difference between model aircraft for pleasure or...

    This particular ARF was brought to market some time ago when higher capacity lipos were scarce or horribly expensive, hence the parallel connections to get more run time. A single pack will do the...

    Pointing out differences in posts as being those with personal experience and those who "heard about" or "I would never" is bullying? Tsk...tsk...such sensitivity.

    Not amused by your situation, just having a chuckle at your description.

    Suggest you telephone again and ask for a manager or supervisor then explain you issue. If they still insist on the $32.00,...

    Many online vendors offer "free standard shipping" but not oversized so one has to be aware when shopping online. It really isn't a scam, just shipping company surcharges.

    That said the order...

    Really, where is the flood of pissed off customers?

    Electrics certainly do eliminate some of the field support. I used Castle Esc's the first couple of years for brushless. Liked the ease of programming.

    They probably recommend the SSL 60 which is what I used. It does not have a BEC so if you use it a separate airborne battery is required, If you have a Castle in that range it will work fine too.

    Gee, I didn’t realize writing opposing views to a negative post about a product or vendor was trolling or a personal crusade. I guess there is no room for expressing both types of experiences here.

    Should be fine for what you want to do. I used a Rimfire 80 in a ten pound TF P-51 ARF, flew like a scalded dog, near unlimited vertical.

    In my 30+ years using Monokote have encountered some colors that did not shrink well or almost not at all. Those generally have been metallic. Have not used any neon colors.
