    I would look up Brodak, and maybe give them a call. They have full power systems, and I am sure could give you the correct recommendation. You may go to their website and see what they offer.

    That is most certainly the best, almost mandatory mod you can make to these planes. The roll rate on my Killer Kaos was terrible until I moved the aileron servo mid span.

    Especially considering one is essentially IFR, and the other VFR. They are as different as the full scale rules. But do not let the rule makers get bogged down with such trivialities. Just get out...

    Where did you see that 400 clubs are not renewing with the AMA? If the AMA is losing chartered clubs now, there is a serious problem for them.

    No doubt the hobby has changed. And it is tough to get things done when you work a lot of hours. My shop is tough to keep warm, so I have a hard time getting out there when the temps drop too far....

    I would add a second firewall back. I think the .56 would be perfect as well. With the aft "real" firewall, you can maintain that short nose look that the DR1 requires to look right. On my 1/4...

    Here is a Sig Akromaster I have been working on. I lengthened the tail, and changed the fin/canopy. Think of it as a "Fancherized" version. Like the typical mods done to the Twister. I...

    Almost all full scale designed aircraft have thinner wing tips by percentage than the root. It is more efficient that way. If you look at most warbirds, they have around a 15% root, and a 9% tip...

    From what I understand, the FAA has a lot of turn over as well. So the AMA will or would negotiate something with someone, then the next group would not stick to the agreement. We have a guy in our...
