    RE: Magic

    Cool! A Magic 20 thread that is current!

    RE: Horizon Hobby Scam

    Boy Howdy! That's the first legitimate reason I've seen for a company to raise prices by 47% at the drop of a hat. What is it the insured say about the uninsured visiting the emergency room?

    RE: Horizon Hobby Scam

    Scam or not, that's a 47% increase in price. If I tried to raise my professional fees by 47% at the drop of a hat I'd be out of business quick. At $189 I thought it was a good buy for a plane I'd...
  13. RE: Long EZ .46 missing wing servo mounts?

    2) Get all the elevator throw you can get on the canard. Set the neutral position with the...
  14. RE: Long EZ .46 missing wing servo mounts?

    CrashPro,

    I don't think it would be too difficult to add retracts to this model, and the glow powered conversion is in the planning stages at this point.

    The 40 size versions do not use rudders, only a servo for nose gear steering. I would imagine the tubes are like others say for the antenna wire. Left or right side take your pick. But if you...
