RE: Looking for and 80

You could probably go with a Top Flite Cessna 182 ARF (http://www.top-flite.com/airplanes/topa0906.html) or T-34 Mentor Kit (http://www.top-flite.com/airplanes/topa0160.html) (my personal choice) if...

RE: Perhaps the dumbest question of the month

I'll echo what many have said in that you don't "need" rudder at this stage. However, if you plan on staying in the hobby and advancing, its a good idea to "grow up" using rudder and start getting...

RE: Watcha Buildin'?

Thanks Don! Yup, you got it...the P-47 I'm building is the 64" wing span. I figured because its small, the weight factor will likely be a big deal...especially because I'm going to glass and paint it...

RE: Watcha Buildin'?

Here is AZ, I try and build all year as my time permits.  Currently I'm working on a TF Gold P-47 that I've had on the table since April.  Just finishing up the vert stab and moving on to the...

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

I'm in a similar boat right now as far as usage...I am just not that experienced in my flying to fully realize the capabilities/advantages of all the mixing and programming. I'm sure I will get there...

RE: help first time build

For engine choice, taking into consideration value and performance, I would recommend either an ST75 or OS65AX.  Both would give you plenty of power for the 4* but not "overkill."  You won't be...

RE: help first time build

Of course if you go digital and so on it's "better," but for a plane like in all reality it is unnecessary.  You'll be fine with standard servos.  At this level, almost any manufacturer will have...

RE: DX6i switch replacement

I'm wondering (and I apologize if this is an amateur question) has anyone tried, or is it even possible, to convert that flap switch to a three position switch, instead of a two position?

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

Honestly, at this point in time, I feel its definitely a toss up between the A9 and DX8.  Both have features I really like (I've read through both manuals) and both seem insanely easy to set up and...

RE: What mixture do you use to clean your plane ?

I use Simple Green diluted with alcohol instead of water.  We used Simple Green when I was in the Navy for everything, and one day I gave it a shot after a flying day.  Works great and I've been...

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

Agreed...I definitely need to try and get my hands on an SD-10. One of the guys at the field has an A9 and I've held the DX8 at my LHS, but not the SD-10.

The DX8 is the most familiar feel, and...

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

Thanks for the input on Airtronics. Its definitely on my list and I haven't discounted it. I did see the Rx prices and that was another big factor which put the SD-10 on my list. I would assume that...

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

Yes, I do think I'll be going with air for the retracts. Because its a 60, Ihave considered going with the the E-flite electric retracts, but I don't know enough about them and I'd probably still...

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

Yes, I was definitely going to use separate servos for the tail gear.  I am building the 60 size and mainly using it to learn how to make modifications for scale detail.  I think the retractable tail...

RE: Upgrading Transmitter...looking for feedback

That's exactly why I figured I'd need more than 7-channels for my P-47.  I plan on having the main landing gear doors scale so I'll probably need at least two separate channels to open the inboards...

Hi everyone. So as much as I've tried to extend this, I have decided that before the end of the year, I will need to upgrade my transmitter. My three considerations are:

RE: is there a plane similar to Sig four star 60

Ditto on the H9 Pulse series and the Great Planes Escapade.... .

RE: DLE20 Engine
