I think that HK has taken a lot of business away from the higher priced stores, but it has also made the hobby affordable enough that more people are doing it, so that probably eventually leads to...

RE: Parkzone T-28 Trojan Appreciation Thread

This forum has gone pretty quiet the past year or two... it was really busy in here a few years ago, but I think people skipped off to other ones (some I think to wattflyer, which is a subforum from...

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

So it takes even less than 20 seconds to rebind, and you don't even need a binding plug? Sounds like quite a hardship to have to do that every once in a while after powering up the heli but before...

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

Ah, now I get it. You were "facetiously" bringing up a major concern that you REALLY DO NOT HAVE.

The only concern that you REALLY have is that you have to rebind the heli occasionally after...

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

You say that the unbinding happens when you cycle the power off and on.

Then you say that you worry that it will come unbound during flight (and, presumably, cause a crash).

I guess I...

So, the unbinding happens when you shut off the heli and turn it back on (from where you said... "Operate heli ok turning off and on as batteries are used up ok so far." and "The only thing that I...

RE: Thumbs Up for Hobbyking Support

My .02 cents... I've ordered from HobbyKing about 7 or 8 times (maybe more... I don't recall exactly but it's been several times per year over the past 4 or 5 years) and have been satisfied with most...

RE: Fiberglass and Parkzone Spitfire MkIIB

I have never played with fiberglass, but my guess is that it would be too heavy.

I think you could cover the whole thing with packing tape to keep it together and it would be lighter and...

RE: Official Hobby Zone

Nice - very good for a first flight!

When flying in wind, you should stand at the downwind end of the field and keep the airplane upwind of you all the time - in strong winds if the plane gets...

One additional point that you might check before doing the adjustment described in the post below... you want to make sure that the servo arms are centered on the two servos that are in the body of...

RE: Official Hobby Zone

I'm not sure what you mean by "o.g. supercub", but if you're talking about one of the original supercubs with the NiMh batteries and the 5 wire servos and brushed motor, my guess is that the LVC...

RE: What would you do if... ?

I agree. There's not enough information in "for personal reasons" to make a decision whether it's "reasonable" or not to exclude the guy. There is definitely some information that is being held...

RE: First Airplane...

I second the Hobbyzone Supercub DSM. Get the DSM model because it comes with a DX4E transmitter and the RX has aileron output so you can add ailerons without buying all new electronics. (If you get...

RE: Forget the DOGS. It's Bash AMA time.

Seeing as this post is about dogs, I thought I'd weigh in.

If multiple mailings really are being sent to everyone, then you have a legitimate gripe.

But if it's only an occasional slip-up...

RE: Backyard (Acre size) plane suggestion

The Hobbyzone Supercub DSM is pretty good... it comes with a 4 channel 2.4 GHz TX, and the electronics in the plane are set up to control aileron servos. So you can fly it as is comes as a three...

RE: HOBBYKING - NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!

Just to add my .02 cents... Hobbyking has been great for me. Overall I've saved a lot of money by shopping there. I've been a little disappointed by the quality of a few things I've bought there,...

RE: Official Hobby Zone

"I flew many 27 MHz airplanes and helis. Never had a problem even at 1000 feet."

I believe that, but then I also believe people who say "I have never worn a seat belt when driving and I've...

RE: Official Hobby Zone

The supercub that comes with a 2.4 gig transmitter (Supercub DSM, I think it is) has the option of adding ailerons. I think that it has a combined ESC/RX, but it does have aileron output. And by...

RE: 3ch going to 4ch

Getting a small plane or something bigger depends upon where you fly. A big plane will be more stable, but you should also have a bigger flying area. If you are limited (i.e. only have a small area...

RE: small park flyer

I like the look of the E-flite UMX Carbon Cub SS - I think UMX is related to "ultra micro", but it has a 24 inch wingspan so it's not that small. It also has their "AS3X" gyro stabilization system,...

Rubber band power conversion using servo motor

I have a couple of medium sized servos (17G turnigy S3101S's... like a $4 servo) that stopped working, so I disassembled them and I think the motors are still good (I think the problem was a stripped...

RE: Hobby King turbine!

I gotta agree with this post... The trouble with an HK turbine, even if it ends up being well designed and built and reliable, is that it will lower the barrier for people to start trying to fly...
