Revolectrix Cellpro 10S Charger

I started flying electrics using NiCad batteries and have been through many battery types and chemistries. Along the way, I have owned and used a variety of battery chargers. All were disappointing...

RE: DX8 default framerate

IMO this is the wrong default. I found it before flying anything.

This thread reminds me of:
Give a simple, one word answer, Yes or No:

DX8 Bind Problem

FYI

Moving a bunch of electric planes from an X9303 to a DX8. Wrote down the 9303 setting and set them in the DX8. The only differences were the V-Tail Subtrim direction identifiers.

RE: WARNING-X9303 CHAFED AILERON GIMBAL WIRING

Checked my X9303. No damage yet but I see that it is possible. The rudder pot wires were routed differently than the aileron, keeping the wires closer to the gimbal.

I routed and formed the...

RE: Xmtr antennas at right angle on Spektrum & JR 2.4Ghz

Pointing the antenna at the aircraft reduces range. If you do not believe this, try this for your next range test. Point the antenna at the aircraft and move away until it fails. Now orient the...

RE: The RC Power Duck antenna

It should work well and have far more range than you need. I used one on a Futaba 8 and 9.

Some advice: If you get one, remove the antenna when you are not flying. Then your transmitter is the...

RE: YS-110 - brand new - first run on FAI Fuel : report

I have never used 10% castor in a YS engine but I have used more than 10% in 2 strokes. You will probably get varnish build up but that takes time. If you don’t run the engine for extended periods,...

RE: YS-110 - brand new - first run on FAI Fuel : report

Hang on here. A little castor is not necessarily bad in a YS engine. We have been racing YS engines here for many years. We push them to their limits and beyond. We run 110s up to 12,500 RPM, a...

RE: Warbird Decision with H9

I agree that the P-51 will handle better on the ground. However, I think the Spit handles better in the air. I agree that the Corsair retracts are fiddly at best.

This is like “More Taste,...

RE: Onboard milliamp hour meter?

I don’t think you are going to find any milliamp hour meters. Because this measurement includes time, the meter would have to have a clock. Not hard to do but I have never heard of it being done. ...

RE: YS 120AC vs 120NC

I am curious about your reasons for wanting a 1.20.

The new 1.10-S is a half pound lighter than a 1.20 with equivalent power.

RE: Receiver Battery Pack Is "Toast"

I have had some batteries that looked like that when a peak detector charger did not detect the peak and kept on charging.

The were all NiMh batteries. I have never seen this happen with NiCd.

RE: Sundowner 50 and YS 110 need help

You want the Dave Brown 90FS mount. It is a perfect fit for the YS 1.10. I have no idea if it will fit in this aircraft but it has a better chance than any other mount I know of.

I have been...

RE: Need a YS 120 Drive Washer and Prop washer

I just checked my parts and I have one for a 120SC (P/N YS2265), not the SF. It looks like there are 4 or more different drive washers for 120s.

If you bought the engine used, there is the...

RE: Need a YS 120 Drive Washer and Prop washer

All YS engines from the .63 to the 1.70 have 8 mm crankshafts with a 1mm thread. A prop washer and nuts can be purchased at a hardware store. However, they will not be lock nuts.

The thrust...

RE: RE-DRILL WING MOUNT DOWEL HOLES?

In my experience, this is a common problem. Usually, a little work with a rattail file will get a proper fit.

I always replace the wood dowels with brass tubing. Wood on wood with vibration can...

Beauty Contest

Yesterday, at the field, a Futaba guy told me that he would not shell out 600 clams for a 10C because it looked like cheap radio. I had never thought about this aspect of product selection.

RE: ARFs versus kits

Absolute statements regarding ARFs, kits and building from plans are silly. There are good and bad ARFs, good and bad kits and good and bad plans.

RE: Servo Checking Setup

If you get the MatchMaker, it is designed for the universal servo plug. Servos with the Futaba J plug will not plug into it.

RE: Servo Checking Setup

Yes, you can just plug a battery into a receiver and one or more servos. Then use your transmitter to move the servos. However, there is a much better way.

RE: Which 4-Stroke for the Hanger 9 Spit MKII

A good place is Central Hobbies. They also sell a full line of parts.

When you can get them, new sell for about 360 USD. The past few years, manufacturing has not kept up with demand and during...

RE: Which 4-Stroke for the Hanger 9 Spit MKII

Then a YS 1.10 would be it. Plenty of power. For great sound you can run a straight pipe because it does not require muffler pressure. Also, you can put the tank on the CG for consistent balance...

RE: YS 1.10S is Awesome

I know people who run their YS engines on PowerMaster 15% and are happy. The performance is adequate for them and the fuel costs about 25% less than the PowerMaster YS 20/20.

For sport flying,...
