    I've used velcro with mine. The hook n loop arrangement dampens the vibration well enough. I've never had a received go bad from this mounting method nor has one come loose. One note though, I've...

    Coleman fuel does not contain Ethanol. The Ethanol in the fuel tends to dry out the diaphragm in the carburetor, requiring an occasional carb rebuilds. Put a good quality 20-25cc gas engine in the...

    Unfortunately, the club I belonged to back in Chicago did not have such an approach. I recommended instituting such a policy and my fellow board members decided that they were more worried about...

    As someone who's been a club instructor for many years, I can attest from first hand experience that holding license to fly full scale aircraft does not automatically make one proficient to fly a...

    Sad situation if a majority of the members are unwilling to stand up, take action and take back their club.

    I've found this to be a problem with multiple Evolution engines recently. My early EVO 46 engines ran great with no problems (5+ years old). I recently purchased (last 2-3 years) 52 and 61 engines....

    The input rating of that servo tester is 4.8-6V. So yes, 5V will power it. Also, brushless motors require speed controllers as they energize the motor coils in a sequence to create rotation.

    Does your club have by-laws or a constitution? If so, this should state the requirements for minutes and communication to the membership. If you do and the rules are not being followed, you have a...

    There's some stuff from Phoenix Models and Seagull Models that's close to what you're looking for. Between $250-$350. Some is 1.20 sized. Some is 60-90 sized. You're interested in a tough size...

    As a former Chicagoan, I can attest that you're correct. All of the big mid-western events utilize IMAA rules. Really, most all "big" events follow this practice. Not sure that it does justice to...

    Couldn't agree more. There seems to be a stigma out there that anything less than IMAA legal (80" WS monoplane or 1/4 scale) doesn't make for an interesting show. Furthering the problem is that...

    Be careful. I've been to numerous warbird and classic events and have seen individual building skills that were impressive and piloting skills that were questionable. Just because someone can build...

    I understand where you're coming from. FWIW, I'm not an officer or board member, so I was not part of the team that decided this. As a member, I did vote in favor of the by-law change. The idea as...

    Maybe my club's actions are premature, but I don't see how it's irresponsible. The way I see it, the registration concept is here to stay. It seems to be a matter of whether or not the FAA can be...

    I've used both Cool Power and Omega and have not found a reduction in slime with the Cool Power.

    I understand that not everyone sees our approach as the way forward.

    No, we inform them that they're not eligible to fly at our field as they're not in compliance with the club's by-laws.

    No worries Dave. Not at all offended. I recognize my club's approach is likely not the ideal solution and I see a point to the concern to the pirating issue to the number. We're not making FAA...

    Not sure how you arrived at us looking to violate the marking requirement? We're following the same principles that we would for AMA Safety Code adherence. We'll keep a roster that documents...

    For better or worse, my club chose to update the by-laws requiring both AMA and FAA registration in order to be eligible to fly. As part of enforcement, members will be required to provide their FAA...

    The problem isn't the $5, it's the fact that the government is putting a program in place that I suspect will have zero effect on curbing irresponsible use of remotely controlled aerial vehicles. ...

    Next to none of them will register because all of these products were manufacturers before this genius registration scheme went public. There's nothing in the box to prompt them to do so. Even...

    The airplane and helicopter crowd has been largely effective in policing itself. We didn't start showing up on The Today Show and the national news with regularity until drones entered the scene. ...
