RE: My first set of wheels.

K B, you got me thinking. I'm looking again at Mamba Max and outrunner. I'm quite familiar with airplane style outrunners. My primary concern is that the Goat will tear up the driveline on the AX10....

RE: My first set of wheels.

I'm looking for good value for my money, not the actual dollar amount.

RE: Re-shaping a foam wing.

Thanks for the responses so far, and I apologise for my absense, but my ISP cut me off for the last 12 days.

RE: Re-shaping a foam wing.

Daveosoar, I guess you're right. But I want long flight times in excess of an hour or so, and I just don't think the stock wing airfoil will do it. The kit came with no instructions, no pictures or...

RE: MalayAsian Hangar

Re:- Buran.
