RE: Why haven't JetJoe Turbines Improved??

Why haven't JJ improved? They don't need to. The price is low enough.

RE: What temperatures do you guys fly in?

Dry is dry. Much better as long as you drink a lot of water.

It's "only" 35 deg c (95f) here but with the humidity the heat index is around 58c (136f)!

RE: Best Place for Sheet Steel for making Pipes

Just get 304. Just as good for tailpipe application and costs much less. Do not buy 303 or 301.

RE: A123 users question

I use 2 packs of 1100mah with 2 switches.

Always charge the day before and never fly more than an hour total. Then again I have a small jet with very little servos.
