RE: Easy Glider Pro Battery Mounting

Re the bty thickness. I guess I was lucky - I got a Zippy 1500 20C only 17mm thick, awhile back. Tried to get another, but seems they don't carry them now. (Hobby King)
One thing - I use a small...

RE: ASW 28

Amazing I found your input - I've been building a Fly Fly ASW28, and scratching about for ideas - specifically, electricking it.
Got no winch, and bungees are tedious.

IF by chance you have...

RE: Electric glider lipo question

I would say - sell them. That size of battery, I've seen in 6ft cubs or biggrt, with quite large motors, not motorized gliders,

I think many folk would use a 2000mAHr 3 cell in your size ship....

RE: Gliding near Adelaide??

If you want sloping, get to Hallett Cove cliff, about 15k S of Adelaide. Smooth as silk.

RE: Easy Glider Pro Battery Mounting

I know your problem, having just finished a EGPro.
Here's what I've done.

a) Use 3c batteries about 17mm thick before putting on the Velcro. I did try one like yours - 25mm - and had a *** job...

RE: Cularis Wing Connection

Addendum !! Don't know how that typo happened.

Sad, but Iin the Graupner 6-pin connectors for the wing connections, per T12Z, and they work a treat. Also sank a pair of hardwood plugs atop the fuse, and screwed on a SoaringUSA Power Pod - the...

RE: Cularis Wing Connection

I can only tell you that the servo conns, wing to fuse, are causing me much grief. Other than this, the Cularis is a great build.
Note well the warning on the use of CA. Nothing else - and ONLY...

RE: What battery are you using on Multiplex Easy Glider

I used to have one of these - took the battery out, put lead plus a 4xAA in the nose & now it's a great glider - including sloper.
Previously when it was motorized I had 8xAA's (side by side) in...

RE: Spectra ARF- Wing over

Washout / in is a twist in the wing. It helps prevent TipStall, and I'm only guessing, but I think this is what occurs when, in a turn, the inside wing goes slower than the outside wing. So, the...

RE: Spectra RTF

There have been quite a few notes about the construction of the Spectra Electric ARF’s wing, and how it tends to break under not-too-fierce manoeuvering. Well, recently I got hold of such a bustup,...

RE: Still looking for a suitable glider.

Great advice!
Now, what do you have in mind for the next step after a Vista - or a Spectra? I sure don't want to get into comps. But a decent increase in penetration without being a bear to handle?...
