RE: OK

Well, I finally got the guts to get Rachael out and maiden flight her this weekend. What a great 5 minutes, probably the best 5 minutes I have had in the 3 years that I have been back in the hobby. ...

RE: I'd rather be lucky........

RE: Chris Chianelli

I watch DIY RCH when I have nothing better to do. I also try to catch Inside R/C and record it on my dvr. It seems that the Inside R/C is mostly geared to Calif. RC cars. They are having a Combat...

RE: 4 Star 40 Mods

RE: WOOOOOO-HOOOOO!!! NEWBIE FIRST FLIGHT!!!!

I've heard of the shirt tail momento, I think it's a great tradition. At a ranch here in West Texas it even extends to a hunter that takes his first deer or elk. I wish my shirt tail was hanging on...

RE: what about the nut?

The nut is probably bottoming out before you get enough pressure on the prop to hold it. I picture that you have a smaller screw that holds the spinner onto the nut/adapter. If you are lucky a...

RE: OS 1.60 run-in procedure

Thanks for the advice, RJ. I know the simulator can only go so far in training, and skill needs to be honed to be able to respond automatically to some of the situations I know will pop up while...

RE: Great Planes Giles 202 25%

I just ran across a listing on E-Bay for this kit NIB and buy-it-now for about $170. If I had the spare cash I would get it just for parts. You can't hardly get a wing or fuselage for that price. ...

RE: Oops...

Been there, done that. A 40 sized Sport Air. Now all the electronics and engine are in a coroplast plane. It might still re-kit if I do it again, but the rebuild would only take a few hours, LOL. ...

RE: OS 1.60 run-in procedure

Well, I did a little reinforcing at the wing saddles, I didn't have any 1/4 stock so just used some basswood I had. I think I will be ready to get her in the air once I've worked out my thumbs on a...

RE: OS 1.60 run-in procedure

Scott,

You are good! You learned alot when she stalled and didn't get put-off but went right to the bench and got her up and flying again. I applaude that! Good repair job too. I would...

RE: OS 1.60 run-in procedure

That would probably help tracking also, it is a very good idea. You could also add a small gromet of fuel tube on the axel to give a little resistance to the hub, but be sure you have the same...

RE: Great Planes Giles 202 25%

Try using back pressure from the exhaust to push fuel to the carb. I find that 3 turns while holding my finger(s) over the exhaust(Bisson Pitts) of my Moki gets the fuel to the carb.. I use...

RE: Great Planes Giles 202 25%

That's one of the mods I intend to do. It doesn't seem to be very strong over the wing area since it is a mid wing with about 1/2 the fusalage made up of wing and belly pan which give no strength to...
