I have a bunch of 1400mm airfield planes...fun to fly, mostly no fuss when purchased as an RTF. Good diversion from building. However, have to say "ditto" on the brittle props...cool to look at but...

How do I select "My forums" ?

I used to have three forums that were setup in my forums, (Scale, warbirds, and gas engines). It was great to be able to navigate quickly to those forums and bypass the whole forum list. Has that...

RE: Comp ARF Spitfire

My only comment is that Sailor Malan looks...

RE: What happened to the finish on mt AT-6 ?

I don't know why people are fixating on the "adhesives." All of the materials used in our planes shrink and swell in different proportions, direction, and at different rates throughout the lifetime...

RE: What happened to the finish on mt AT-6 ?

I don't know what kind of foam (open cell or closed cell) your wings are made of, nor the type of sheeting (balsa or light ply) in the areas that are problems. However, all of these materials shrink...

RE: The Galloping Ghost

Still looking for prop size/pitch and rpm figures on the galloping ghost setup. Is Enserk just the guy who made the video? is there someone else I should be asking?

RE: Shaft Coupler - Good/Bad Idea ?

RE: Shaft Coupler - Good/Bad Idea ?

JeffH and DaddySam have the right idea...solid rod or welded horns...double the servos if need be...the elevator is the easiest control horn to hide. As long as you have clearance for the horn to...

RE: ANOTHER COMP ARF SPITFIRE

Awesome spitfire. I especially like your tail wheel setup since it operates like the full scale. Wondering why you didn't use an adjustable oil damped shock from the RC car guys instead of the rubber...

RE: My pet peeve in scale

I've heard scale was an old man's hobby...when did they let the old women in? ;)
