RE: Calculating Wind Speeds With RPM

Good enough for me! I'm actually using an 11x7 prop instead of the recommended 11x8 prop. I wasn't sure if the different prop pitch really changed anything in the equation or not. All I want is to...

RE: Set Ups for 3D Buddies

I epoxied my wing & horizontal stab in to avoid what you're talking about. The loose mounting is rather cheezy if you ask me and acutally one of the mounts broke off when I tested it for soundness. ...

RE: RCUniverse.com Flatout

Think about it guys.....these are cheap ***** "foam" planes. They are supposed to be quick & easy to build. Why design a plane that is complicated and frustrating to assemble? Personally, the way GP...

RE: Bi-planes

Ditto! If you can't proficiently use rudder input in conjunction with aileron and elevator - you're not going to fly 3D! It takes constant input on ALL the sticks to make it happen sucessfully.

RE: Anyone Flying Esky V3 Lama?

As far as parts replacements - that will depend on you. If you keep it from tipping over and running in to things, the parts will not be an issue. Here is a web site that sells replacement parts...

RE: Anyone Flying Esky V3 Lama?

J-Cube,

The Lama (which is a fixed pitch, coaxial type heli) does not fly nor does it react as quickly (or violently) like a collective pitch heli. It is very stable in a hover and in flight...

RE: Anyone Flying Esky V3 Lama?

J-Cube,

The Lama is very easy to fly once you get the hang of it. If you have not flown helis before, there will be a little learning curve involved but it's not impossible to be sucessful with...

Keith,

Great minds think alike! I've been doing the very same thing - integrating a built up wing with foam. I use the Blue Cor foam ('cause that's what I keep on hand) on the fuse and the aft...

RE: Apex Lipoly batteries superior?

WRK -

I have one of the Apex 1300mAh 3-cell batts and really like it. It weighs just a tad bit more than the TP1320's but performs every bit as good if not better. For the price difference you...

I've been "peak charging" my TP1320's like this on a Hobbico field charger for over a year now and the batteries are still performing like new. That's not to say that over a longer period that it...

RE: Set Ups for 3D Buddies

Thanks again for your input. Sounds as if you're pretty well set with your Buddy. The weight of yours is about where it should be (I would think) just wished mine was in the same range. Oh...

RE: Anyone Flying Esky V3 Lama?

moonsnake -

If you have a little cheapo 2-cell 700 mAh - like E-Tec - it's thin enough to slide through the front of the heli without having to take off the battery tray. Although I get better...
