Hard to say. The (somewhat broken) ESM website still exists, so I suppose the company is still in business. It does seem that all of the vendors carrying their products in the US have either dropped...

I went with an HV power system for the receiver, as I do on most of my big planes. No brownout worries when the receiver never sees less than 6V!

I used a Corona DS538 on my steering. Overkill....

I saw that ad and talked to the guy. I'd have bought that plane if he hadn't thrown away the boxes! :)

I'm planning on building one of these also as electric. I've read this entire thread and...

$50! For 8 AA Eneloops!

I have been using a $17 Rhino 2600 mAH lipo in my 12X for years now without incident. I made a custom harness from a 5S lipo balance lead which plugs directly into the...

I have a small problem.

Say hello to my Comp-Arf 2.3m Extra. I assembled it, shipped it up to a fly-in I was attending and maidened the plane last season. I then left it in Georgia, in...

RE: F27 STRYKER Part 7 : The Basics To The Darkest of Dark

6100, 6100e... same receiver, different pin directions.

As for props - 6x5 or 6x5.5 should keep you under 40A and will give a pitch speed in excess of 100MPH.

RE: F27 STRYKER Part 7 : The Basics To The Darkest of Dark

On the question of receivers - AR6000 and 6100s are so-called park flyer receivers. Some of the guys that have used those receivers in Strykers with lots of CF have reported having problems, so...

RE: F27 STRYKER Part 7 : The Basics To The Darkest of Dark

One of my mates has this motor in a 36" delta wing. Batteries are the old TP 3 cell 2500 20C and 4000 15C (?) packs. Teeny-tiny 4" and 5" props, average current draw is 50+ A.

Rubbish.

RE: F27 STRYKER Part 7 : The Basics To The Darkest of Dark

If you've already got radio gear you'd really be better off building one up. $40 bucks for an F27C fuse, motor mount, hatch set & vertical fins... $10 more for some CF rod and balsa elevons... add a...

RE: F27 STRYKER Part 7 : The Basics To The Darkest of Dark

Flutter.

Best check over the airframe and your linkages - look for servo gear slop, loose or busted aileron hinges, etc. Also a good idea to check for cracked or loose CF spars, especially if...

RE: F27 STRYKER Part 7 : The Basics To The Darkest of Dark

Had a chance to check out my mate's built-up Stryker last weekend.

He's using a Grayson Hobbies SuperMegaJet outrunner and a Turnigy 50A ESC. Batteries are the inexpensive 3S 2100 20C lipos...

RE: JR Announces 2.4Ghz 12 channel & 9 channel radio. X9303 and 12X

Question for Horizon engineers. Can a 2.4G TX be linked to a 72mHz radio for buddy-boxing? (2.4G master, 72m slave)

That would be nice.

RE: Funtana 90!

Funny you should mention this. One of my mates has a F90 and has had the same thing happen to him.

TWICE.

The first time this happened we were all helping to clear a spot in the tall grass...

RE: Aviation Models 33% Yak Build Thread

I bought mine a few months back from Chief. ($779, shipped). They reboxed it - its far less expensive to ship these big ARFs minus the crate.
