    Make a stencil and used Permanent Magic Marker. It produces quite accurate numbers that won't disrupt your paint scheme or will stand out depending on your choice of color.

    There is a problem with RF and smoke. There is smoke, and there is exhaust.

    Depends on the model and what version of RF it appeared in as to what you will see, and what you can do about it. ...

    Almost every model airplane motor/engine lists it's specs and one of them is recommended props. Obvious right?

    So if you don't have a model airplane motor, or one that's too cheap to provide...

    I made a hole in the cockpit floor. It was smaller than the bottom of the pilot bust. Held the bust with the hemostat so it could be pierced with a eyelet. The eyelet was then used to pull the...

    They'll do as good a job of enforcement as they do with emigration. And as they enforce the present gun laws. What will come of that?

    Thanks JM, I was beginning to believe I was the only one to ever buy the vario. Or at least the Spektrum one.

    That altitude report seems a bit thin as a vario function. I used to have one that...

    Spektrum telemetry

    Has anyone found write-ups on the telemetry functions?

    It'd be nice to know for example if the variometer software is mute or what is a sensible way to set it for use, etc.
