RE: What would good numbers be for Magnum 91 4s

I have run everything from a 13X8 to a 15X6 on my Magnum .91. I have only used 4S plugs on it and 15% nitro with at least 18% lubricant. I never like to see it turn anything near 10,000 on the...

RE: How many Futaba 10C?

You will have to do at least one Y with the setup you just mentioned, unless you want to run two seperate receivers. Channels 9 and 10 are not proportional, or even adjustable on the endpoints like...

RE: Futaba 608FS reciever locout/failure due to heat

So as a precaution, I will mount my new 6014 where it is shaded by heat reflective material and make little ducts to ensure good air-flow around it, so it is air cooled like the engine (LOL);).

RE: First Gas Engine

IMHO, all that has already been said is good, free advice. I own at least one of all the mentioned engines, and to date, have not had a problem with any of them, (just lucky, I guess)

RE: Quick U-CAN-DO 46 Servo question

RE: 26cc gas prop size

Most gas engines take awhile before they break in and start making real power. Don't loose heart, just burn a bunch of gas with the correct oils in it, and you will be rewarded.

RE: Quick U-CAN-DO 46 Servo question

The Ailerons surface area is huge on this plane, so I chose the 3010's for them and the Rudder, because the rudder, in knife edge has allot of blow-back loading from the prop wash. Since the...

RE: 26cc gas prop size

I think 8200 is a little fast for a gas engine, I have run both an Evolution Wood 18X6 and APC 18 X 6W on My XY 26, and both seem to turn between 6800 to 7200. I am flying it on a GB Wild Stick and...

RE: XY(Z) 26cc A-Spec Gas engine
