RE: Funtana90 w/OS160...or Saito180....help?

Well I think the guy's with the O.S's are going to tell you the 1.60 and the guy's with the Saito's are going to tell you the 1.80. I have the 1.60 on mine and love it and I know this probably didn't...

RE: What does you Funtana 90 weigh?

RE: AMA dues increases and land acquisitions

And why Muncie Indiana? Is it because it's kind of in the middle of the united states? I just can't seem to get the family wound up for a trip to Muncie Indiana. Does anyone know if there is anything...

RE: Cap 232 .40 or 0.6 from kyosho for OS61fx

hosam has it right I flew mine with a Tiger Shark 75 and thought it was perfect. I flew it first with a Webra 50 and had to add a ton of weight to get it to balance and it was not as much fun so go...

RE: this ain't hallowe'en make-up

I hope you heal up and you probably will but I can't feel sorry for anyone that "tweaks and tunes" their plane from in front of the prop, I'm sorry but it's plain stupidity that causes this and not...

RE: Me and my S.E

Nice job Mr Matt you'll love the plane. I'm flying my 3rd S.E. (all kits) it's one of those planes that are nice to always have one around. They are not the best 3-d plane but will hover with a bit...

It seems like the pages are loading twice, I'll explain. When I go to a forum and then into a post and back out I have to hit the back button twice to get out of the post and back to the forum. No...

RE: New Ultra-RC Katana 50 ARF

RE: Sig Somethin Extra-worth the money?

I have had three S.E.'s and as far as engines I ran TT pro 46's Webra 50's and the one I fly now has a Tiger Shark 52 in it and all were/are great combo's. I'm not sure about the quality of the arf's...

RE: Funtana 90 and Super Tiger 90

Go through the funtana thread and then make up your mind if the 90 will work for you or not. It takes a while to go through the whole thread but is well worth the time if you are even considering the...

RE: Ever repair your own arf?

RE: Hangar 9 Twist 3D

Boy Jim I think a 14x4 would be a bit small for the 82. I had a 14x4 on a magnum 61 4 stroke and I know it doesn't have anywhere near the power the 82 has, I would go with the 15x4 but maybe someone...

RE: funtana 90 cg

I think between 6 to 7 inches is a perfect place to start with the cg and then you can move it back after a couple of flights, because that's all the longer it takes to get comfortable with the...

RE: Modeltec Excite 90/how does it 3D?
