RE: Tiger start???

Please, it is not worth it. I have the same engine, and I could never keep the tigerdrive from slipping. I would clean everything off, and oil it. It would work one or two starts, then it would...

RE: what does a gearbox do

The gearbox allows the use of a larger prop, usually for slow flyers. You are right, it does slow the prop down, but you can get more thrust out of it. So for direct drive, you would use small...

RE: Lithium battery disposal - first one

I belive you don't cut the batteries, but simply discharge them to the lowest safest voltage(2.75-2.8 volts per cell) then put them in the salt water. The salt water will take the voltage down to 0...

RE: Lipolymer

Mix up some salt water(TBSP. per 1 cup) and put the lipo in it. It will take out the charge in the battery slowly, and after a week or so, you can throw it away. What you should do first though, is...

RE: MT2 jolting
