    I'm sure Hobby Services would send out prepaid boxes for repair items so the customer didn't have to spend any money, but can you imagine how many items they'd pay 2 way shipping for that had nothing...

    That's not conclusive though. If your main gear is crooked, you can adjust your tail wheel to compensate and make the plane roll straight. That was the issue I had on my Cub; it would roll straight...

    I really doubt it's the thrustline. I have 3 degrees IIRC of right thrust in my H9 Cub and it will still go hard left on takeoff if I let it. I think he'd need 5 degrees, maybe more to cause that...

    Usually being too heavy with the throttle results in a ground loop to the left though. If a Cub turns right at all on takeoff it either has massive amounts of right thrust or the landing gear is...

    If you are needing left rudder, I'll give you 10 to 1 odds your landing gear isn't straight. You need to get your main wheels straight first, then get the tail wheel tracking right. I think the value...

    There really aren't exact equivalents. With 2 stroke to 4 stroke, the rule of thumb is to go with 50% more displacement. So a .46 2 stroke would become a .65-.70 4 stroke. But that's only a rough...

    Cubs are a pleasure to fly, and I think everybody should have one. But they aren't for beginners. It sounds like you were on your own the first time. You'll crash a lot of planes that way. It's much...

    What do you have now, gphill? Your quad may really be too small or too poor quality to fly well, but then again it may be a setup problem or a technique problem. I have the 5 inch Blade quad and I...

    You might want to add up the cost of converting your engine versus buying a new one. You'll need a prop adapter, new muffler, and probably some way to mount the engine. Your all in cost probably...

    Reading it again, I can see how that's confusing. What I meant in that last sentence was the middle of each wing side instead of the middle of the whole wing which is near the fuselage.

    I'd skip the trainer and go for a Mini Ultra Stick. It will fly fine with your 3 cell 2200 batteries. It's maneuverable but also forgiving with its thick airfoil and light wing loading. It's balsa...

    Yes, you should be fine doing it that way. FWIW,when in doubt about a CG position, it's smart to Google a CG calculator and figure it up yourself. That way you'll be able to set it from whatever...
