    We expect the new Central Box 400 to be released this fall. If you have time in your build schedule the CB-400 would work very well. If not the Power Box will work too but will not be as...

    You can put as many servos in a group as you want. The only caution is that since all servos in a group start at the same time the resulting current spike can get high. This is not a problem as long...

    The Cortex gyro will pick up the elevon mix from the TX during its normal programming. It is very simple, there are no extra steps needed.

  14. RE: Introducing the NEW Aeroworks Pitts Python ARF QB!!!

    Wow, that's a bit heavy. I thought these were coming in at around 17-17.5 with a DA-50. How much does your smoke system weigh?

    The setup in the video has been clocked in the 125 mph range. It is capable of much faster speeds but these setups tend to over heat things. With the current setup you can run wide open for long...

    I have approx 20 cycles on them and they are holding up great. Our setup pulls around 80 amps max and the packs are around 125 deg after a flight.

    RE: New Pitts Python Pics

    I'm planning on e-powering mine and I'm starting to gather up all of the components. Do you think a pair of 8711"s w/slave struts will be ok for the ailerons or should I use 4 servo's?

    RE: Sundowner and Beginers don't mix.....

    We have a few dozen flights on our Sundowner and it is a really fun airplane. While not a beginner plane it's not a hard plane to fly at all once set up and trimmed.
