Nice. I can highly recommend the JP-4 pipe on it(though the stock HD pipe is probably excellent on it too, as it is on most engines..), and especially the Odonnell medium purple plugs. I used to...

AFAIK, NO..., the backplate will not fit. You need the backplate from the pullstart version of the LRP 30 (called the Spec 2 I think..)

When you have the backplate installed, you can then use the...

I had a Big Red in my LST2 and it was great. I now have an LRP ZR.30X, and it's definitely better. Best MT engine ever. OK, it has more power than the .28's, but the main reason is the insulated...

Is a Blade 200 too crazy for a beginner? (I'd learn outside...)

(supposing I decided to go up to a 180 or even 200 size...)

Thanks. The 170D is the expensive FPV one though, right? Isn't the X4 the same thing, sans FPV? I was looking at the "new" one with LED's and a 2mp camera.

I had the Blade and flew it briefly. ...

Delta Ray with Taranis?

Has anybody bound a Taranis with Orange module to a Delta Ray? The three modes are not that important to me, but I want to keep the panic button(for fun..). Hopefully without having to resort to 984...

I think maybe I will go with a micro for starters - the Blade Nano I guess. To learn to fly first over the winter, indoors some.. Then maybe something bigger in the spring..

Is the micro Hubsan...

I'm in the same boat as the OP. Looking for a decent, mid-size (not 350 size, not micro..), which can fly indoors, as well as out.. Size-wise the Blade 200 looks about right. Just wondering if...

Yes - the Dynamite Mach 28, Losi 454, and LRP Spec 3 are all very similar. Identical blocks, carbs, etc.. The Mach just has a different sleeve - 2 less ports.. - and cooling head.. The LRP Spec 3...

I just bought a car with a 1.5L diesel, which gets nearly 40mpg(5.5L/100km) - AND has lots of space for RC stuff... Not the coolest, but the super low diesel cost is awesome compared to our other...

Well, how is it?

I was frankly very happy with the Dynamite Big Red .28 and Losi 454 in my two LST2's, but then I went and put in an LRP ZR.30X with the pullstart backplate and Spinstart cover,...

My understanding is that lipos can be dangerous, even in responsible hands. Not saying that as part of the electric vs. nitro thing, but in general for all of RC. Planes, helis, whatever.

I assume it's closed backplate, so forget an MT. The Tamiyas are so cheap because they're dumping stock.. Buy a second kit for parts.. (That's what I did..). You won't find better value for money.

Ten minutes IS an awfully long time to concentrate..

If you've got acute ADD maybe.

And if you can't manage that, no wonder you can't manage nitro. All that hard work and all....
