RE: Another Chinese Turbine? (HobbyKing)

A turbine engine can be very unforgiving of quality control problems in materials, assembly and operation. If you are lucky with a problem the engine just won't run but other problems can be a lot...

RE: Easy Star simulation

Good advice but my planes divide up into 2 categories. keepers and expendables. Unforunately some keepers meet their fate prematurely but the planes I refer to as beaters I use to practice things I...

RE: Easy Star simulation

The only problem with flying more responsive planes in the sim is that sometimes you want your plane to do something and you don't have time or altittude to pull it off with the real plane.

RE: Wow Repair Cost for Ember/Vapor

I went through this in RC cars. The Japanese manufactures would sell a car and if you needed a part you bought the whole part tree it came on. American companies tended to not make the same mistake....

Easy Star simulation

I have a friend with a daughter who wants to try Electric Rc. The Easy Star would work well in a local park. There is a Freeware simulator with this plane, has anybody tried it?

Would it work...

RE: NEGATIVE FEEDBACK: Northeast Sailplane Products

I've ordered a couple of times from NE Sailplane and got the item quickly, well packed and at a competitive price. That said I tried to find out if a plane was available in the advertised color. I...

RE: GWS p-40 warhawk

Do the 3s 2200 lipos fit without modification. I like the looks of the P40 and have 3 lipo's that size.
A flier at our field has some very serious horsepower in a GWS P51 but he glassed it and it...

RE: Sureflite Spitfire

There are two versions of this plane. The newer one has a slightly longer wing, probably a good thing for electric conversion. The motor mount can be a clamshell on the plywood for an inrunner or you...

RE: How does my ability on sim affect real world

After all these years and upgrades the lack of P factor on take off is a major drawback especially on tail draggers. I started with the Aerochopper sim and in terms of flight dynamics I find very...

RE: Microjet challenged

I'm doing a quasi German Camo job. Dark green with a yellow nose. I'm not going to spend too much time on it as this plane will get flown low and fast. That does not lead to long life but it sharpens...

RE: Microjet challenged

I've got a couple spare Aveox 27/13/3 motors, so one is going in the Microjet with a 4.75x4.75 prop.
3 cell 2100 lipos.

I did the surgery on the cowl and it came out fine. The old motor is...

RE: Microjet challenged

I'm not super handy with an xacto knife so I'll probably not try to pry it loose from the foam. I'm leaning toward cutting the cowl about a 1/4 inch from the base and just hinging it from the front.

RE: Microjet challenged

This is the ARF version and the cowl is already glued on. It feels very securely glued on, not tacked on.

Microjet challenged

Buying a Multiplex Microjet AFR seemed like a good idea. I guess Multiplex figures you will crash it fast becuse it's sold with a cheap speed 400 and a glued on cowl that keeps you from oiling the...

It looks like you guys have hooked me up! Thanks! The PDF plans look good for the launcher I'll check the others for a foot release.

RE: Multiplex Twister EDF

I was at the June electric fun fly in San Diego and was pleasantly surprised at the performance of a stock Twister. You do need to build speed and trade it for vertical. Speeds looked to be around...

Motocalc 8

I updated my Motocal8 today and find only 50 planes on their database. That kind of surprised me. I can punch in data to find answers but I had expected more support. The planes seem old.

Has anybody converted a Combat Models F15 or F16 to electric? I've got one of the F15's and I'm curious if it has been done.

RE: Duraplane Conversion

I knew this was a borderline stupid project. I had intended to swiss cheese the foam to lighten it and I do have lipos and a brushless motor. The effort would likely be better spent elsewhere. So I...

RE: Duraplane Conversion

I've got a Durabat and toyed with the idea of converting it to electric. It wasn't my smartest purchase but it does have a high weird plane factor. I've got an overly large soccer field at the end of...
