RE: TRYING TO SLOW THE PLANE DOWN

The firebird phantom is naturally a pretty sleek and faster trainer from what I've seen...you may want to just pick up the spare parts to make something like a Parkzne SLo-V or even a GWS Slow Stick...

Man, the Multiplex Easy star may have rudder+elevator but if you turn up the rates, you'll get aleron like performance...I can't stop raving about that plane since 5 of my buddies all trained and...

RE: Inexpensive 4ch park flyer

Go with a Parkzone warbird and use some of that new found building experience to turn it into a 4 channel ;)

I "believe" that the Focke Wulf and P-51 both use the same motor as the Super Cub...

RE: Ideas for 380 motor

I've got a brushed 380 on my Parkzone Slo-V...with a 1180 prop and a lil nimh or ncad (whatever) it works just fine.

I'm actually going to attempt to use another one of these motors, 380 or...

Hobiecatlob...ping Parkzone directly for that, or look at the spare parts listing, they might list the size of it.

RE: Slo-v ESC/RX How to fix?

ESC is used to govern the power to the motor basically.

The RX (recevier) is the lil circuit board where all the servos and motor(s) plug into to receive transmissions from the TX (radio,...

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

Heya SLo-V Flyer,

did you strengthen your main wing to compensate for the increase speed from your setup? I notice mine likes to flap around if it goes too fast....

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

I'm not trying to spar by my comment but i'll just casually put it out there that you can get an RTF Easy Star for around the same price or less than a SLo-V.

Parts for a PZ plane will be...

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

heh, personally, after seeing 5 of my buddies now "begin" with a Multiplex EasyStar I'd say the slo-v was too pricey for a beginner's plane even though parts for it were much easier to obtain.

RE: SMALL,CRASH PROOF, SLOW FLYER WANTED

These are way better than Airhogs imho (see URL). I believe they're also marketed under Venom Planes at LHS - i know I've seen them over at HobbyTown USA under that label here in CA.

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

Heya, check the manual for the exact CoG - I'm sorry, I'm not at home at the moment to find this for ya....

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

Maybe a surface is warped? could be a bad balance? what's your CoG?

Also, did you give the main wing a few clicks "back" on the lil part where it clips onto the fuselage? I personally fly...

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

I "think" the slow stick would handle the power better than an unmodified SLo-V. Tthe Slo-V's wings do some serious floppage whenever I push it into a steep dive, I'd hate to see it with a BL going...

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

Yep get away from housing developments. My servos still twitch a lil bit but not badly whenever i fly at the local park.

RE: ParkZone NEW FW-190 Butcher Bird

Wow that sucks. I've had a plastic pinion on mine and it only just now started to fail after about two major nose in wrecks and 6 months of Lipo-charged use.

RE: P-51 D RTF

Yeah that P-51 is a low winger for one, which makes it pretty touchy when it comes to manuevering - I would highly recommend that if you want an RTF, that you pick a trainer with a high wing setup...

RE: 2 Guys looking for our first Park Flyer

I highly suggest going with a ready to fly setup a beginner and then moving into something you'd build on your own, like a Slo Stick.

I started out about a year ago with a PZ SLo-V, it came with...
