    Looks great. Takes me back to the days of building plastic models, and the extensive weathering I used to apply. I used chalks, tempera paints, anything that provided the perfect shade and texture I...

    Hey Chris,
    The calculations look like a thrust tube that tapers from 120mm at the fan duct down to 100mm at the exit. I think that a lot of testing would be needed to determine the ideal thrust tube...

    That inlet should work on my fans. I measured the outside of the duct and they are 122 mm in diameter. Are the inlets necked down to a smaller diameter at the forward edge? Also, what do you suggest...

    VASA fans and a kit

    Chris,
    I have a pair of these VASA 120mm fans and I might as well have you put me on the list for your latest version A-10. I would like to get one of my fans in your hands so that you can make some...

    Thanks,
    Vasa doesn't send the fans with the mounting tabs installed, I'm guessing so that each builder can mount them as they wish, but sends them loose. I'll have to attach them myself, but I'm...

    That's great, Chris. If it would help with the inlets, I can send you one of the ducts so you can work off of the actual item. Otherwise, they measure exactly 112mm outside diameter at the leading...

    That's getting into the realm of super, super-detailed! Nice job, Chris.

    Chris,
    Awesome work on the gear! What is the diameter of the main and nose gear struts? Do you have a particular set of retracts in mind? I'm leaning towards electric myself. I've been using Lado...

    RE: T-REX 100-What is It

    They're called either contacts, or pins. I'm not sure if the Trex 100 connector is proprietary to Align, which would make them hard to find, but from the pictures I've seen, they look like micro,...

    RE: Futaba T8U Transmitter

    You're right, Les.
    I don't even have my 8U anymore and I still kept the book. It's a very good source of Futaba xmtr info.

    RE: 120 SR intermittent yaw

    Thanks Doug.
    I never thought about the motor itself. The tail rotor does keep spinning when it goes haywire, but the tail will go hunting on its own or sometimes will pirouette completely. I'll...

    RE: Futaba T8U Transmitter

    Are you trying to set up the flaps to drop with a switch instead of using the knob? If so, it can be done, but it's a rather complicated "offset" pmix. It's described in Don Edberg's book on the 8U,...

    Hi all,
    I have a Blade 120SR that's about 2 years old. It has flown fine all of this time with a few contacts with a wall or floor. Recently, the tail will yaw uncommanded as though the gyro has...
