RE: Need Opinions On Engines..

YAK 140? Is that a 140 2 stroke or 4 stroke? You are limited in a 140 2 stroke choice. 4 stroke should be the YS-160 or Saito 180 size. Looks like you need to put the OS 140 2 stroke in it. Talk...

RE: Something Bigger - is there such a model?

The 3D freedom was kitted from a previous owner. Its original name was challenged by SIG for copyright infringement. So it was renamed the 3D Freedom. Great plane by the way!

RE: 6V on RX ANY PROBLEMS?

I've been using 6v packs for quite some time and in conjunction with Hitec servo's. Occasionally I'll see the jitters from a newly charged pack but after letting the plane sit a few with the...

RE: Do we need better defined categories?

While we do have an ARF forum and many military posts go there, I feel this forum should stay as is. Its Warbirds and Warplanes. If you feel the need, then post in the Scale forum. There are many...

RE: Huge Problems

The problem I have found is that you can NOT start at O and dial in 180 L and 180 R. The servos will be different every time. What you should do is set up a little jig to put your servo in. Attach...

RE: Need an aerobatic aircraft for 3w-75

I had a 3W75 in my H9 33% Extra. I used CF tube and gear, single servo's on the ailerons. Came out 22lbs even! Was a sweet flying plane. Highly recommended. The 33% ZEdge would fit the bill also...

RE: 30% cristain eagle issues;help

I agree with Silversurfer and V-snap. Fresh batteries (6v) tend to make things jumpy and I've definately had issues with Y-harnesses like you are experiencing!

RE: Sullivan Skywriter not working... anyone else?

Fresh 6v packs are known to make your servos jitter as if something is wrong. Usually let the plane sit a few minutes with everything on and it smooths out.

Oh, and I had to send both my...
