I just flew a new one at 250mm and it was a tad too far aft for my tastes. It took off nice and did nice wheelie landings, but was just a little sensitive around center. I ended up around the 220mm...

I've had great success with the 3S Lipo from Spektrum. Hundreds of flights with no issues. Highly recommend. Available directly from Horizon Hobby or your nearest Hobby shop/Dealer.

Dave,
I have seen instances where using two batts into separate regulators and then into the two power inputs on a Powersafe RX can cause problems. The Powersafe RX pulls power from the input with...

I've been using LiFe packs for quite a few years now (typically Spektrum LiFe packs, but also a few NoBS packs). I actually like the "flat" discharge curve as it delivers a consistent voltage to the...

I don't think you're going to be able to avoid that problem if you keep rudder in HH. I think having rudder stay in rate mode while elev and ail go to HH would be a better/safer alternative. Even...

Gary,
Which tailwheel are you using/recommending? Is it pneumatic, or just solid rubber?
