I hope old age doesn't fail me. When I did mine I belive I just turned the mains around and ran them backwards. You need to get the axle even with the leading edge. I think I used a Sullivan tail...

RE: Senior Ailerons and Engine

OK I've got a SR with ailerons. I built the kit and when I had the wing about done decided to add barn door ailerons. You're right the ailerons are not very effective. The radical amount of...

RE: PICA P-40 Build.

Can't help with the build. But is that a red Studebaker pickup I see in pic 1? I absolutely love Studies. If it is so you are a lucky man. I'd love a Champ pickup. Good luck with the build.

RE: New Guy trying to build a F4F-4 WildCat

LMA where to begin. First off the above posters are all correct. The F-4 is a very poor idea to build as your first plane. They are notoriously hard to fly even for experienced scale builders and...

RE: RCM Ultra Sport 60 mods

I built mine from a kit. It has an early ASP 61 in the nose and it works just fine, plenty of grunt. I used Spring Air 104 (?) 3/16HD pneumatics in it. They work great, I've only flown it a few...

RCM plans still available?

Silly question, I've been away from RC for a while. Life and lack of a flying field has curtailed my flying. I believe I have located a new field to fly at so I'm going to get back to it.
