RE: Four Star questions

On the 4*40 I don't think so. I used a plastic Futaba tray and cut some scrap hardwood rails for it to mount to.

RE: Field Box Tool Suggestions

I agree with PilotFighter and chopper man fix it at home. I take as little as possible. If I could get away with it I'd just take a starter, glow and fuel but there is always something that needs...

RE: Four Star 40 extremely nose heavy

I had the same problem and solved it by mounting the battery with an extention in the first fusalage bay behind the wing. Then I had to add a little nose weight to fine tune it. Mine has an OS 52 4...

RE: ParkZone Citabria Crash Please Help!

Hard to say what you need and how to fix it without some photos but I think Habaneroe is on the right track.

RE: To build or not to build...8 year old sharing plane.

Tackle an ARF or two to get some build (assembly) experience then move on to building a 4*

It's a good kit with good instructions but some experience is helpful. It'll take a month or so to...

RE: Park Zone Spitfire

LOL it just doesn't feel right using packing tape to fix an airplane. I got the tail back on and got two flights in yesterday. Flys fine. I may have to buy the Corsair that's coming out next month.

RE: Need a field

All clubs will require AMA.

I think the skill thing varies from club to club. With SMRCF there isn't a "formal" check flight. You can kinda gage a new persons skills by the way they handle...

RE: Sig Four-Star 40 mods?

I would put "replace pushrods" in the essential list. Temperature changes will change the trim to the point that you need to adjust the clevises sometimes.

RE: Covering a new 4*

My 4* is yellow and black which is a good contrast, very visible. Red and white would be a good choice too. If you go with yellow and red I would make it a darker red. If you make the entire bottom...
