    RE: Bob Brown For AMA President

    Not offended, just a brief moment of confusion. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Do you ever come up to Bridgewater Mass for their annual pylon racing? Im normally a spotter and a lap...

    RE: Bob Brown For AMA President

    If this forum is all about pylon racing I am completely fine with that. But when you type AMA Election in google it takes you here. So if its all about racing I would keep it that way not to confuse...

    RE: Bob Brown For AMA President

    Surprised this forum isn't more active. Does anyone have more information on the candidates other than whats on the Campaign Statement. I sent a email to all three candidates and received a fast...
  4. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    This aircraft flys great with the stock setup for the exeption of the motor. "You know the art tech." My aircraft flys like a dream with a hyperion Y-22 LONG MOTOR 5000 KV. I am running the 30 amp...

    Did you use velcro to hold the battery in?
  6. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Is there a noticeable difference of speed with the landing gear off on the F-16. I just installed the Hyperion engine and it is fast but still not the speed that I am looking for. My next step it try...
  7. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Just got my new motor in today. It is the same as Sam. The Hyperion Y22L-5000. It drops right into the ducted assembly and looks great. I will be test flying it on wednesday. Let you now how it works...
  8. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    I have my dates off, I bought it around the time it came out and reported it after the 4th flight. A few days later.
  9. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    I havn't. Last I heard HH said it will be shipped mid December. I would think I would be one of the first to recieve it since I reported mine blown in August. But I have stopped waiting and purchased...
  10. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Sam,
    Also, how did you get the motor out of the duct unit?

  11. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Sam,
    Will that motor work with a e-flite 30 ?
    -Travis
  12. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Rick,
    I agree, the comments made are basically saying that the consumer knows nothing about eletric models and that we don't know what we are doing. It is really sad that Sam has already...
  13. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    David,
    I set the speed controller up and had Hobby Town USA check it over. It was setup exactly to the specs of the book. Did you only test one motor or were your testing several. I am sure...
  14. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    With the DX7 for Ail you are using wing type setup but for the ele you are using mixing. Since you are using mixing you have to trim each servo separatly. You are most likley using ele and gear...
  15. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Okay, I have been out of the loop for alittle bit. What is going on with the motors. I am still waiting for mine from Horizon. Are they discontinuing that motor and sending out a new one or giving us...
  16. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    If you havn't flown a EDF before, I would recommend the phase 3 first!
  17. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    The Landing gear works great. When my motor died I had a hard landing and it took the hit!!
  18. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    It is not a CG problem. Every ducted fan plane I own has to have have a slight amount of up elevater. If you have them stright with the horizontal stab you need to trim it up alittle.
  19. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    I didn't have any controll issues with mine but you are right that you have to keep full throttle on all the time just to maintain flight. The book said not to keep it full trottle but you can't gain...
  20. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    That sounds more like your lipos need to be balanced. If not your speed controller is not set to 2 pole
  21. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    I think the SAPAC F-16 looks more scale in the air compared to the E-flite. The front intake looks identical to the real one. I also like the verical stab.
  22. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Sound like there is a lot of others with the same problem as us. They said my motor should be here today. I hope they didn't lie!
  23. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Yes you need to change your speed controller to a 2 pole.
  24. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Welcome to the club!! Your lucky, mine happen in flight. I was lucky to bring it back to the runway. My field is surrounded by hills and fences for cows. Mine died at about 30 feet and it barely...
  25. RE: ***** New E Flite F16 400 DF (Thunderbird Scheme) *****

    Still waiting for my new motor from Horizon Hobby. I pulled the broke motor out and I have to say, take your time with. It is a pain. The book said that the company only glued it in sections. Mine...
