RE: Kyosho Phantom

I still have mine, though I didn't get it out at all last season. The few times I got to go out flying the weather wasn't right for it. Maybe this year!

RE: ASM Pitts Special - Calling all owners!!!!

Since I'm still putzing around inside the plane this is something to check! Thanks.

BTW, I started the FT-160 this weekend and it ran great...sounds even better! This is probably the smoothest...

RE: ASM Pitts Special - Calling all owners!!!!

Tom,
It wasn't that hard! I made a spacer by layering plywood (I can't remember the thickness..but I can measure if you'd like). I used the mounting plate as a template to cut out the parts. You'll...

RE: ASM Pitts Special - Calling all owners!!!!

I bought this with the intention of putting my OS FS-120 in it. I had the FT-160 sitting around waiting on me to get building a Top Flight Stinson, so when I saw how well it fit it seemed like a...

RE: ASM Pitts Special - Calling all owners!!!!

Here's some pics of the FT-160 install. With the RX battery, spinner and prop off it balances perfectly! Once I have the prop and spinner on (I'm waiting on a new Tru-turn spinner) all I will have to...

RE: The Tango 40 ARF from Hangar 9

Brady,
I'd have to go measure it, but I believe it's about an inch. I have it setup on a know on my Futaba 9C so I can vary it. I enjoy playing with the settings and I'm really comfortable landing...

RE: The Tango 40 ARF from Hangar 9

I've had mine a year now. I went with the OS-55AX and have loved every minute of it. The only change I have made was to all MG servos. After one flight I just happened to notice some slop in one...

RE: Kyosho Phantom 70 Nitro ARF

RE: Kyosho Phantom 70 Nitro ARF

2PUPS,
Ihave the Phantom. I love "different" planes and this one definately is that, and is a scale model of a real Reno air racer. I would not suggest this plane if you're just starting out. Ground...

RE: Kyosho Phantom

Well........I would, but I haven't seen it! At this point I can't even remember who shot it! I'll put out a query to our club members and see if anybody has it.

RE: ASM Pitts Special - Calling all owners!!!!

I've always wanted a Pitts, and I missed out on the GP model, so when Hobby people put these on sale I just had to snatch it up. I got it today, and I'm really impressed. The quality of the kit is...

RE: Kyosho Phantom

When I saw this plane, I wanted it, so this was one of those situations that I bought it first and then figured out how to outfit it. Having the plane on hand made it easier to plan what to put in...

RE: Kyosho Phantom

Plane Killer, my YS 63s is more than enough for this plane. it's not heavy and is designed for speed so the Saito 100 is overkill. If I hadn't gone with the YS I had also considered an OS 55AX two...

Ron,
I flew my GeeBee with a 120FS-III and it was plenty of power. As for Real flight, It doens't prepare you for the landings. This plane will take off and fly around without issued, but it...
