RE: Mini Funtana Nitro

I did a MF with a AP15 it was realy fun to fly. Wouldn't hover but would really scoot. I think it worked best with a 8x6 that I cut down to 7.5x6.

RE: Need help soldering music wire

Well so far those are great ideas. Is it possible to have too much heat? I have been trying to sweat the joint with a torch as a plumber does with copper pipe?

RE: Phoenix Models Sukhoi SU-31 CG and engine Q's

The manual states 110mm back from LE at fuselage. Mine flew best a little nose heavy. The OS 46 FX pulled it around well a 60 would be fun.
