RE: Next kit suggestion

Wow! I don't think I saw a single post about a Sig Somethin Extra. It is perfect for a .46, but can do a .60 four stroke. Looks real good, can do aerobatics, laser cut kit. Check it out!

RE: JetiDuplex vs. FASST vs. Hott : any suggestion ?

Have you looked at the Hitec Aurora 9? Its feature set may be inline with what you are looking for. It has built in battery voltage telemetry. Other forms of telemetry can be added.

RE: Sig Kadet LT-40 Radio/Engine Question

I like to go with:

* A .46 engine
* 5 Servos - 1 in each wing for Aileron Servos

The .40 is enough power, but the .46 might get you out of trouble in a tough spot.

RE: OS .46 FX Piston Removal

I doubt that you are doing something wrong. Mine came off one time years ago. This time I simply gave up before hurting anything.
