RE: muffler screws coming loose

I use aerosal electronics cleaner to clean the screw threads and also the threads in the engine head. You have to be sure to use the kind that doesn't leave behind a residue given some act as both a...

Which Short-Course Truck for $250?

I'm going to share the cost with my 13-year old son for a new short-course truck for him. The budget is $250 for a RTR set-up. He doesn't have money for retrofitting, so whatever is purchased will...

RE: Older 30% AW Edge C of G?

What I typically do for first flights is measure the wing tip, from the leading edge to the aileron's trailing edge, and set my CG at 28% - 30% of that measurement. I use the same percentages...

I typically start with a CG of 30% of the wing tip and end up at 32% - 33%. Going with 10 3/8", I would have started at 3 1/8". Pretty sure I ended up at 3 3/8", which would be 32.5%. Can slow the...

RE: Muffler keeps falling off

Prior to mounting a muffler, I clean the threads on both the head and bolts really well with aerosal electronics cleaner, the type that isn't designed to leave an oliy residue. A little bit of...

RE: Aeroworks 96

Hi Erwin,

I still have the same amount of aileron trim as when I first flew it. I'm not able to get out to the field much at all and so never spent much time trying to figure out where the...

RE: Bad business practice. Not impressed

I'm not affiliated with AW in any way, nor is this intended to be legal advice.

RE: Jumping back in

I'm a believer in keeping it simple. Your choice of course, but you may want to consider just running a single rx, using redundancy on other things such as rx batteries and switches. On my 33% I...

RE: vess vs Xoar

Don't know if it holds true in all sizes, but, in experimenting with 26" props, I found the Vess A and B to be louder than the Xoar laminated; especially the A. Didn't try the Vess C or the Xoar...

RE: DA-85 Starts Backwards Only

To clarify, I wasn't trying to make a point of whether flipping the engine counter clockwise is "backwards" or "forwards". Flipping your engine counter clockwise, and it running counter clockwise,...

RE: DA-85 Starts Backwards Only

Whether saying flipping it counter clockwise is backwards or forwards, counter clockwise is the correct direction for starting and running. The good news is that since it starts right up flipping it...

RE: Extra 300 balancing issue and power

I start out at 30% of the wing tip measurement (including aileron) and go from there. I do this on aerobats and war birds alike and have never had a balance problem for the initial flights. On...

RE: DLE-55 When to switch props?

Regarding RPM numbers on the ground, remember that different props unload differently in the air. I run a Xoar 26x10 laminated prop on an 80cc, and it really unloads in flight. Have also tried an...

RE: Wild Hare Edge wings get stuck on tube

Another easy way to open up the wing socket is to use sandpaper, foam, a dowel, and a drill. With the sandpaper on top of the foam, tape the sandpaper to the dowel. Cut the sandpaper and foam long...

RE: Wing tube too tight - need suggestions please

Another way is to use a wood dowel, sandpaper, foam, and a drill. Cut the sandpaper to be about 6" wide, and the foam too. With the sandpaper on the outside of the foam, tape an end of the...

The manual says 3" is the recommended CG. 3" is just under 29% as measured at the tip. I ended up at 3 1/4" or 3 3/8"; don't remember which one for sure, but I believe it's at 3 3/8". I fly...
