Default i'mWhere can i find???

hi guys,
i'm in the process of building my first IMAC plane. it's an Wild Hare Extra 300 28%. well i'm having a hard time finding some items i want to use. the biggest thing i want is an Helment Head Pilot. i know od the ones chip hyde sales but i know there has to be other companys out there on the web that sells them. if you could please let me know their web sites so i can order me one. also who is the best supplier of menz props??? also if anyone could help with this problem. i want to have a redundent battery/switch set-up but have one receiver. i can't figure out how to wire it up and or how many reg.s i need. i'm going to be running li-po batterys with 6volt regulators. how do i wire it up???
thanks so much for any help you can give!!!

as for prop...

Desert Aircraft for Menz
and

for others


Battery...
I would use LiIon and not LiPo...but that is me...
Battery to a switch to a regulator and then plug it in to any available port on your rx and then do it twice.....
Personally I don't feel it is necessary on a 50cc plane, but that is the way to do it...

One of the least expensive pilots (only takes a couple weeks for it to arrive).

They are supposed to be making 40% pilots very shortly also.

i really need a 28% pilot or a slize i could use in my 28%er. all the site you guys have listed so far have too large helment head pilots for my plane.
also i have a question about the battery advise. i didn;t know i could plug in two switchs with batterys on both i thought it would send double the voltage and fry the receiver??? could someone explain

thanks

when you use two switches and two batteries the batteries are connected in paraell and will not double the voltage.

Paraell batteries voltage the same Mha doubles

series batteries Mha the same voltage doubles

Mike,

Don't sweat putting a 30% pilot in a 28% plane. If you get too wrapped up in it, it is like saying that all males that are 38 yrs. old and are 72" tall have to weigh 185 lbs. People come in various shapes and sizes, not everyone fits the cockpit the same. Sean D. Tucker, Matt Chapman, Jim LeRoy, Mike Goulian are all different sizes and shapes. Basically, if the sholders fit between the canopy rails, and the head does not touch the top of the canopy, you will be good to go. Just don't put a Williams Bros. 2" pilot in there
