Actually the front wheel, (80/90x21) is a spoke wheel with a tube and the rear is an aluminum disc and tubeless. You'll never see me running an APC. No sir I haven't flown it yet, too windy Saturday. I may just buy another cowl and mount it sideways. A 12x6 is too small since it turns a 13x6 at 9,900.

I would like to have this Dunlop Elite 100/90-19, but that requires a $1,200.00 wheel. I'll just have another Saito thankyou.

That michelin tyre on your front wheel is a dual compound touring maybe sport compound on the tyres edges? i always found dunlops on road bikes to be very shuddery near their limits and the michys gave you a smoother and quicker warning.That's really good revs on a 13x6...bet you would'nt pull that with an apc

Pete, I've been in W.Va. at my daughters house all week, I haven't put the finishing touches on the LT 40 yet and the battery in the Spektrum DX 7 died. It lost it's memory so needs a trip to Horizon for a reprogram. The Saito .62 balances the LT 40 perfectly with the battery on the CG and a 12 oz Roto Flow tank. I am thinking about installing the C&H ignited 1.00 on a Joss Stick.

The little feller pictured will put Dyna Beads in your tubed tyre.

Dave can you do the dubbya dot veeaay in longhand for us foreigners? otherwise we won't know what state you are in

Have you used roto tanks before? i have a 14oz one yet to try it.I assume you mean the backup battery in your dx7 i used to fly one but have a jr 9503 now,better centre feel on the sticks.I need a new battery for that and they seem hard to come by.

Thanks, it's West Virginia, the DX 7 apparently has no back up battery, there is along discussion in the Radio Forum about that.
