RE: I have a Zenoah g-23, but can't find the manual...anyone have a link?

You da man!

This is very helpful, but I think this is for the newer G-231 motor. Mine has the 4 bolt mount, not the 3 bolt mount. I'd love to have a manual for the older one.

Thanks again!

RE: Caliber 30 Tail Probs

I'm guessing the belt to the tail is loose. This happened to me, and under higher stress (full left/ right) it would slip. With time it caused a crash. I adjust it now by loosening the bolts...
