    Yes, it is possible to do. You will want to make some sort of jig to hold the gear just a little past what you want. Then put in an oven at 150 degrees for an hour, then ramp up to 200 for an hour...

    This makes good sense, I'm betting that our cheapie radios use fairly low rated components or as industry calls them Class 1 and class 2. dbsonic, where do you fly? we may know one another.

    Pages 22 and 23 in the manual cover all that is needed. If the OP does not have a manual one can be downloaded from the Horizon site.

    If I were building an airplane with 4 gas engines I would run 4 Tech Aero IBEC units. Reason being is that they can all be driven off the same channel so if needed you can shut down all 4 engines at...

    I agree being that it is a smaller engine. The overheating may not be mixture related either. I doubt it is the same condition but every DA 150 I have owned would hold an RPM until just after touch...

    Bob, I'm with you. I would NEVER use 4.8V on a 2.4 system. I too have been using 2.4 exclusively since 2008. I have had 2 crashes because of radio failure. The first was a regulator failure. The...

    most modern radios have provisions for dual aileron servos that have no effective trims other then the aileron trim. Properly done there is no danger of bumping a switch or knob messing you up. Once...

    The Lanier kit built as is comes out pretty heavy and is a bit of a cheesy kit. That being said, replacing the fuse sides with hard balsa and the plastic turtle deck with stringers or a balsa sheeted...

    Steve, that looks about right to me. To be safe you can calculate out to see where 30% of MAC is. Another good thing to do would be to compare it to a G-202 of the same size. The Turbo Raven was just...

    Sure it's stepped up to high voltage but it does not have much power behind it. Think ESD, lots of voltage but not much power.

    Ok time to throw out my 25 cents worth. First off I think I have a unique advantage here. First off I have been flying R/C for 36 years. So I have used all types of systems from the old AM stuff to...

    Try to find a Lanier or Godfry kit. I built a Lanier with some lightening mods with a DA 50 and it came out at 15.5 lbs. Great flying airplane.

    Best advise here. When we are talking about this much money it makes sense to have the engine checked out before the sale. I have bought a couple 150cc twins this way. Seller and I split the cost.
