RE: Phoenix Models Fun Star 40-3D

I think mine was right in the middle of the recommended range.....for initial flights, I wouldn't go back any further than that........my would snap a bit with full up elevator...which I didn't...

RE: Phoenix Models Fun Star 40-3D

If I remember correctly, I used the recommended throws for initial flights, then cranked up the throws for 3D. Expo is more to personal taste....I think I ran about 35% on the ailerons, 30% on the...

RE: towers trainer..

Wrinkled ARFs are not uncommon......the plane takes a lot of changes in humidity and temperature during it's life in the box between the manufacturer, distributors, shipping companies, and retailer.

RE: towers trainer..

Just to clarify, a slightly nose down condition on the CG machine for a trainer is fine.......although yours definitely looks slightly nose heavy.

In addition to what Joe said, I like to use a pushrod or music wire and insert it into my fuel tubes, then bend them....that way, the pushrod or music wire will keep the tube from crimping when you...

RE: towers trainer..

It is possible that the CG is spot on.....trainers are often blanced perfectly with no weight....but Tom is correct, for an accurate CG reading, get the Great Planes CG Machine....it's a great...

I used the stock setup.....can't remember if I crossed the pushrods in the fuse on this plane, but I know I have on others with the same type of setup. I would highly recommend using...

RE: help me decided my next plane

I agree about the 4-stroke........a .70 might just barely fly it.......definitely need a .90, and yes, a .70 will fit in the 4*40 if you decide to go with that.
