RE: charging my futaba batt. packs with tekin charger

It will charge about any NiCD battery. I don't know what software it has, but you need H31 to safely charge NiMH cells. I would just charge at a low rate in PO mode. (CS if the battery is dead)

RE: need advice on Hobbico SuperStar EP

This plane flies fine. A tad underpowered but a nice enjoyable flyer.

RE: Superstar EP and dx7

As an owner of the Superstar EP I will give my 2 cents. Sure it is a little underpowered but that makes for nice relaxed flying once airborne. Climb out is plenty strong enough as long as you don't...

RE: Flying near real aiport?

It is a non-towered airport, I do know that much. Also it isn't a meet or anything it is just two of us, flying electric.

Flying near real aiport?

Does anyone know if there would be anything that interfere with real planes taking off and landing? Surely they don't have any equipment that runs on the 72mhz freq? We fly just across the road from...

RE: Alpha 40 Trainer

Although it is slightly underpowered and has a few little quirks, I have had great luck with the Superstar EP if you had any interest in going electric. It's a great flyer, pretty stable for a 49"...

Super Tigre Silent Mufflers

Hi,

I'm looking at .40 size engines and muflers, and like the idea of the Silent Muffler from Super Tigre, like the one included with their own GS40. My questions is, never having heard one run,...

RE: SkyFly to Superstar EP?

Found a church about 5 min away that also has a huge field beside it. So, we use the basketball court for take offs, and the church grounds for landing. Works out great.

RE: Phoenix Sonic .25 high-wing ARF??

I have no problem flying my Superstar EP, which is a 48.75 span, so it's around the same size as the Sonic. I would probably be good to go then right?

RE: SkyFly to Superstar EP?

Well, I have successfully learned to fly the Superstar EP. Nice little plane! Knife edges and loops are not a problem, and the handling seems pretty crisp for a trainer. I ended up ditching the Sky...

RE: Phoenix Sonic .25 high-wing ARF??

So a .60 size wouldn't be too much power for a first nitro plane? What I fly now it a 48.75 span Superstar EP as you can see in my signature.

RE: Phoenix Sonic .25 high-wing ARF??

The Sonic or the Tower Trainer? I think you mean the Sonic but I did mention the Tower in one of my posts and wasn't sure which you meant.

RE: Phoenix Sonic .25 high-wing ARF??

Thanks guys. I thought being a .25 it would be less powerful and thus easier to fly than a .40 trainer but I guess I was wrong. I have also been considering a Tower Trainer .40 ARF.

Hello,

Has anyone on here had any experience with this plane? Was it stable? I am looking at a first nitro plane.

.25 vs .40 glow trainers

Is there a big difference in power/air speed between the .25 glow trainers and the typical .40? My guess is the .25 would be easier to fly or no? Thanks.

RE: Setting up new radio

Thanks again. Considering that I learned using rudder for turning would it be a good idea to set up the Superstar EP for rudder only turns to begin with or do the ailerons feel much different?...

RE: Setting up new radio

Thanks for all the info. I see what you are saying about learning to fly with no expo. However, if it reduces my chances of crashing I think it would be worth it personally. I am going from my first...
