RE: What happened to

I heard from a fellow local flyer that he opened up in Newcastle. Maybe that's where Jim opened his? If I figure out anymore I'll post it.

RE: What happened to my retract servo?

I was wrong about the servo brand. It's this one. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=JSP20080 It doesn't show specs for 6V, do you think there might be a problem using a 6V...

RE: What happened to my retract servo?

Yeah I stripped a gear. It still works but has a bit of slip wher the teeth are stripped in a small section. I think I messed it up because I had the retainers at the outermost ends of the arm and...

RE: Silly Engine! Bolts should be tight!

Are 4 strokes more likely to grenade like that than 2 strokes? It seems like I've seen more fragged 4 strokes than 2 strokes.

RE: OS 55 AX dead sticks

It's not the prop, I had the exact same setup. The engine ran fine but not enough thrust for the plane. With the 12x4 she has unlimited vertical now.

RE: OS 55 AX dead sticks

That's too little prop for a large airplane such as the dc. That may work on a small fast plane but I wouldn't recommend it. I do think the 13x6 is too big as well though. The 12x4 or 13x4 would...

RE: OS 55 AX dead sticks

If its the plug you broke it in with then it may need a new one. You'll be surprised the difference a plug will make. Pull it and look at it. Hook the glow igniter up and see if the whole thing is...

Tx flap switch question

Is it possible to put my flaps on a switch rather than the turn dial on my 7C? I would like to use the 3 position switch, but can't seem to figure out a way or find one in the manual. Thanks!

RE: Too pretty to maiden?

I think I was holding the tach too close, if I hold it at the recommended range the rpms drop. I tuned it from there to about 9200 and when I hold the plane straight up it continues to run just...

RE: Too pretty to maiden?

I may take you up on it Ken, we'll see how things go.

A couple questions though: She (OS70 FS 1) is turning 10K easily with the 12x6 3 blade and seems rich. Do I need more prop?

Too pretty to maiden?
