RE: Westland Lysander Plans

MJ,
Have you finished the Lysander? I'm consider the same plan/laser cut parts for an electric version and would like to know how the build and flying went.
Thanks,

RE: Are you interested in trying pattern?

Thanks Dylan & Chuck, I've been poking around that site and have figured out the 2 point roll and the double Immelman without rolls (though it doesn't seem like an Immelman). I'm still not clear on...

RE: Are you interested in trying pattern?

I intend to use the Sportsman pattern sequence to sharpen my flying skills and instill some disipline in my flying. Maybe if I can gain some semblance of competency I'll try entering a contest.

RE: Harbor Freight trailer frame

I've been considering a trailer to haul planes when I go to flying events. The HF 4x8 trailer is intriguing. My question is how well does a light weight trailer haul & how light is too light? I'm...

RE: 1st flight of the sukhoi su31 today

Glad to hear the plane flew so well. I'm considering doing an electric conversion on this model. Do you know how it weighs without your equipment in it?
Thanks,

RE: Phoenix Models Extra 300S 46 ARF W/ PICTURES

Does anyhone have the weight of the airframe with servos only? I'm planning on "electrocuting" it with a Hacker B50 geared at 6:1 using 14 GP3300's to swing a 14x10 prop.
Thanks,

RE: Building and Metal-Morphing a Gamma

This process is amazing. Can I assume that you're somehow "squirting" a liquidized coat of metal onto the surfaces, which then dries hard? How thick is the coating? How resistant is it to...

RE: AXI-fied Extra 300S E-Conversion!

Stephen,
What size prop are you using with your Jeti 30/3? I'm running a couple on 10x7 on 8 cells. I didn't think you could push the Jeti 30/3 with 12 cells.
