    RE: Motor starts, then quickly dies

    Dear all,

    well, the resolution was much less dramatic. I emailed Redcat to send me the "factory settings" for the needles (they do not write about them in the manual for whatever reason). Iset...

    RE: Motor starts, then quickly dies

    Thanks!

    I have run the car a total of maybe 4 hours so it would be weird if the glow plug would not be OK. And again, the motor does start, and I keep the glow plug igniter on ... why would the...

    RE: Carburetor yes, fuel line no

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Carburetor yes, fuel line no

    Here is the prelude to the story: Iwas happily racing my Volcano S30 and then thought that Ishould try leaning the low speed needle to save some gas. Somehow that led to the car stalling when I...

    RE: Lost binding to my Tornado S30?

    OK, so I looked at this video: <font size="2">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejxTETBTePU</font>(our radio is this older-looking one).

    Switched on Rx and Tx. The Rx has power. It is blinking right...

  9. RE: Tornado S30 Transmission/Differential Broken?

    There are two, right, one in the front and one in the back?
  10. RE: Tornado S30 Transmission/Differential Broken?

    Thanks!

    Actually the whole mystery was solved today. The rear grub screw, the one where they tell you in the manual to definitely loctite it (which we never did because it is so hard to reach),...
  11. RE: Tornado S30 Transmission/Differential Broken?

    But which one, where? How do I investigate? And how do I fix it?
  12. Tornado S30 Transmission/Differential Broken?

    RE: no radio power

    Not sure it is any solace, but I had the same issue with the battery tabs needing to be pulled out more. Redcat should put this in their manual (or better yet improve the radios).

  14. RE: Several issues with brand new Volcano S30

    Oh, thanks for the tip ... I did go through shallow water yesterday, I guess I got lucky! There is no way to retroactively seal the servos, right ... going through the water and mud was a lot of fun...
  15. RE: Several issues with brand new Volcano S30

    Yes, eventually we got the radio to work. It was a simple solution: I had used NiMH batteries. When I put them into another Redcat RC radio they worked, but not in mine. Redcat support suggested to...
  16. RE: Several issues with brand new Volcano S30

    Well, Ihave watched more Ali Shanmao videos than I ever would have cared for, but there is just nothing where he shows the securing of the drive shaft screws. I would think that they don't show this...
  17. RE: Several issues with brand new Volcano S30

    Thanks so much for your help!!

    Just some follow-up questions.

    RE: Strenght of an electric airplane motor

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    What I call wind is a typical ocean breeze, maybe 15-20 mph. I am not sure whether I would go flying then, but as I wrote, the Firebird Commander can handle just very...

    Strenght of an electric airplane motor

    I have a Hobbyzone Firebird Commander 2 plane. It is a nice beginner's plane and does well with no or very light wind, but is outmatched by even lower moderate winds. You may still be able to fly but...

    I looked around on the web for...

    I am a newbie to RC cars. I have a RTR Redcat Tornado.

    I guess all RCcars come with pistol grips. However, I also fly RCplanes (currently all RTF) and eventually want to buy my own transmitter and...
