Actually, I thought this was a GS thread, but now see its the 1\7 scale. They'd prolly be fine, but I'd still use something a bit more robust on the elevator. But that's just my opinion.

I've always used the 645's as well, but recently started using the Power HD 8309TG's. I love them for the price.

I know from the few tests that I've done, a 3B produced less thrust than a 2B. Does that mean 4 would make less? That's one area where I'm not so up to speed. Need to research it. I'd love to fly my...

I have 90's on mine and it tracks just fine, so long as you put a boot full of rudder on your take off roll. You'll be fine.

I'd also agree with the spring airs. My TFGE 60 has them with no issues. The ONLY thing I don't like about them is once you unplug the wing they stay down. Not the easiest for transporting with the...

Mike, tell me you don't have the 615's in that corsair. Unless you fly from pavement and grease every landing, they'll be bent in one day. Terrible retracts in my opinion. I ended up flying mine with...

Which model retracts? I have had a lot of Robarts over the years and just about all of them were good. The only ones that were awfull and not worth using even of they were free were the 615's. They...
