RE: Noob Li battery question

Don't do it. The lithium ion batteries will NOT handle the amp draw from RC use.

RE: gws zero cg

It all depends on which motor you have.

300c will not fly well with a 7.2 volt battery, if at all. I use a 9.6 volt 650 mah with a 9x7 prop. Flies great. ICS100 also.

350c will fly with...

RE: gws zero cg

Balance it on the spar or just behind it with battery installed. Mine is about 3 mm behind the spar and flies great. :D

What size battery are you using?

RE: Yard stick or Slow Stick?

I have seen video of a SS flying in a gym. The only thing worth noting is that the wingspan of the SS is large - I think it is about 44".

RE: Buying 1st airplane, want a warbird

Definitely go the slowstick route. Get yourself a good 4 channel radio setup that can be used in future planes.

If you decide to go with a warbird you will have one flight then Boom!

RE: gws zero question

if you just want to use 3 channels - use Ailerons, Elevator and Throttle. NOT R,E,T.

Up the battery Voltage. At least 8.4. I use 9.6 volts 650mah 2/3AA batts with a 9x7 slow fly prop. ...

RE: flat edge with flat performance !

I didn't think the 350c motors needed to be retimed. I only retime the old GWS 300 motors - and only about 3-4mm at most - line the red dot up with the crimp on the casing.

I use 3s 1200mah...

RE: 1st Electric for Experienced Gas Guy?

I would suggest you start out with NiMh batteries because you can buy good packs for about $15 - $20 and can use the charger you already own.

As stated above - Lithium Poly batteries cost more...

RE: GWS glue is shameful

Worked fine for all 3 of my planes.

If you don't like the GWS glue use epoxy or foam safe CA.

A10 dissapointment

Is it a GWS A-10?

If you want to stay with a 6 cell 7.2v pack then get a pack with a higher MAH rating.

You can try a 7 cell (8.4volts) or 8 cell (9.6volts) pack and you should see increased...

My first Plane (again)

Sig makes excellent kits with great instructions. You should have no problems. Copy the plans at Kinkos and use an acoustic tile on a flat surface to build on.

Engine Question !!!!!!!!!!

the LA's tend to have more play (Shaft moves in and out) than the FX engines.

They will rattle at idle speed. So on this engine it is perfectly normal.
