    1. The APC gives you more performance across the board. This is due to the higher degree of science used in design and a stiffer blade due to materials.

    No camping for me as I now live 1/2 hour from the field. Virginia and I were just talking about how nice it was going to be not having to drive 3 hours after a race. New place has all kinds of room...

    Agreed, on barn door type ailerons re flexing them up does in fact work. Locally once a month a group of us get together to race GP Spitfires. These have a span of about 38" and can be either glow or...

    Gene, Hitec does things a little different. I'm not sure about your system but on my A9 when it binds on default settings it stays on the selected 2.4 frequencies. You must go in and set the TX to...

    Raptor has a great point. Like I said in my first post is that most guys can't see past RPM. We see threads all the time where someone is boasting about a high RPM or is not seeing the RPM he feels...

    It's a pretty widly known fact the the MA props measure less pitch then an APC equivalent. I won't speculate why beyond the fact that some people can't seem to see past RPM. If you are happy with MA...

    I just swept up all the primer dust I made sanding the 3 Macchi. I mixed it up with epoxy and had enough to sculpt a 4 th Macchi. LOL glad I only do this once a year.

    The Macchi airframe I kicked this thread off with has very close to the same drag profile as a Q500. It takes the power of a YS 115 to get close to 180 mph. IMO no amount of mods to any .40 2 stroke...

    Can't say that I can agree with this. Yes the Edge has a fair amount of taper but the leading edge is straight. This makes for a very stable wing planform. One of the reasons that most Red Bull race...

    Well, they aren't called S500 airplanes. I would almost like to see a grudge race between a Jett powered Q500 and one of our gold warbirds. I'm betting it would be pretty close.

    It sounds like the pop off pressure is too high. Under the diaphragm there is a spring loaded fork that controls fuel flow through the carb. If the fork is adjusted too low the pop off pressure is...

    Use 87 octane pump gas with a good quality oil at 32:1 ratio. The high octane gas has no advantage in our gas engines. The engine is stalling because either the low needle is set too lean or you have...
