    If you want one of the best fuel proof finishes, try KlassKote. It is a two part epoxy paint that goes on well with brush or gun, very durable, the only problem is that it is not cheap. Covers...

    What you say is technically impossible. There is only one CG location on any object, regardless of it's position. The CG does not move when you balance inverted versus upright, it always stays in...

    If you do not have to do any channel reversing it should work right away. However, after you set up the throw amounts and any dual rate or expo then I'd rebind just to make sure the fail safe is...

    That is a tough decision. I have been in the business where soldering is quite important; all types from micro PC to large electronic assemblies and I do not believe there is any one best station. ...

    Think of the number of mah as fuel. If a gas tank holds 6 gallons and another hold 1200 gallons, it won't change how the motor runs. the mah's is just a measure of how much energy is stored in the...

    I still use some 6 meter equipment, Futaba and Hitec and both still work as well as any of the newer stuff. I also use 2.4GHz (in fact most of my current planes are on 2.4) but why not use the 6...

    At that voltage, it is probably a 12 cell NiCad or NiMh. If so, any Nixx charger that can handle 12 cells should do the job. Just monitor the voltage and temperature when you try out a different...

    Yes, the low self discharge NiMh's such as the Eneloops are IMHO much better than using LiPo in your transmitter as they hold a charge as well as LiPo's do yet you can charge them in place and with...

    Regardless of brand, get a 2 wheel bandsaw, not a 3 wheeler, unless you like to buy lots of blades and spend lots of time on wheel alignment. Get as big a one as you can afford, I'd recommend a 10...

    I have been using Eneloops in mine and that works out very well. I'd say that any LSD (low self discharge) NiMh should be good to use as now several manufacturers make a decent LSD cell.

    Yes, you need to use the Tactic receivers. I have both the Spectrum and the Tactic and IMHO the Tactic is a far easier transmitter to program and use and ever bit as reliable.

    I think it depends on the design of the reversing circuit. If all it does is amplify the signal (the output of most of the 2.4Ghz systems is only about 2.7volts), there should be no problem. Now ,...
