RE: Where to buy Nitro Formula F1????

I think the F1 cars are a bit too fragile. I imagine those that would race these would be a more mature audience since they wouldn't be the fastest nor the best handling. They would be for those that...

RE: What are they worth

if any of those engines are open rocker four strokes, then you might be able to get a pretty penny for them. i've bid many time on NIB open rockers on ebay but each time they sold for more than $200....

RE: Can you identify this plane

that's not a new version IMO. torque rods in aerobatic ships are all but gone so this must have been a plane that was designed quite a while ago. but the externally mounted servos say that it has...

RE: Soldering Iron Burn

you should invest in a stand. that way you'll never reach for the wrong part of the iron! i have my history of cuts, bruises and burns from this hobby but luckily not with the soldering iron (yet)!
