    After talking to Mike at DWFoamies about this issue. He says anytime the motor stutters like that it is a loose bullet connector or bad wire in the motor.
    Learned something today. He is a...

    Thank you for your reply. Guess I need to look for a replacement on both. This was part of a combo and while it had plenty of power I may look at a different brand. This is not something I want to go...
  3. ESC turned it's self into a roman candle

    I've only owned to electrics so I don't know if this is a typical thing or if it's something I did that I need to change. I have a DWFoamies Juka. The battery packs went bad last winter so I set it...

    Since you are going Gas. think about going to a LiFe battery. You can run one battery to power the RX and ignition and get 4+ long flights depending on the pack size. There is no need for a regulator...

    My advice would be to start saving. Once you put a gas motor on that thing you will swear off glow. The YS is a fine piece of machinery but it's a messy high maintenance pig in comparison. When I...

    The 1.60 makes more power but it is also heavier. Some of the extra power you get will be wasted on lugging the motor around. Gas would be the direction I would go. A 20cc would fly it but if you...

    If it is a SPAD3D you can download the plans on their site. The last page has the CG and throw settings on it.

    Take empty for sure and remember to do it inverted since it is a low wing.

    Using 36:1 is probably more oil than a 60cc needs but unless it's starts fouling out the plug it's just going to make a little more mess on the bottom of the plane. My gassers range from 20cc to 60cc...

    EEEWWWWWW! A car guy. Do you have small round bruises where plane guys have been poking you with a 10" pole? BAHAHA

    Seriously, it's all good and good info :-)

    7/8 channels is plenty for a 50cc. What you are going to find on the higher end radio is ease of programing , number of mixes , number of models ,etc,etc. I use a Futaba 10C myself. I wish it had a...

    My flying has changed so much since I had a bunch of Tigre's. Back then we would turn and burn with a sport plane or warbird for 8 minutes and then land. Midrange did not mean a lot. Now I am hardly...

    You are not going to hurt my feelings. It has been a while since I ran a Tigre so you may be 100% correct about it pointing to the rear bolt hole and not the front. It does point to one of them...

    If I could ad to the good advise above. The fuel nipple should be pointed at the front motor mount bolt hole for the slit to be aimed correctly. Secondly, you did not mention prop. 11x7 or 12x6 is...

    For starters my P-51 time was on a GP kit built and I have not flown your model. If I was guessing the kit built probably had a higher wing loading. I tried a few mixes on it and was never happy with...

    One servo might be slightly easier and save you $30. But I would still do the 2 servo setup. It's stronger, and you won't have that extra servo in the fuse when you put it all together. Plus, I am...

    I think you will be surprised how well it will fly at that weight. Back in the day I flew many a Goldberg with a Enya 1.20 and smoke that pushed 12 lbs. It was still a joy to fly as long as...

    My question would be why? I don't see a benefit from it. If you want to run it a little rich for a few tanks the spark plug fouling would be the biggest down side. On the other hand you could have a...
