RE: Orbit 7-14D Proportional - any info?

The early orbit 7-14D had really awful sticks. I have one and I can't imagine how we modellers could fly with those sticks! You really need strong fingers and thumbs to move them well.

RE: Need help Identifying this 37 size helicopter engine

Looks like a engine by a taiwanese company, Super Flying Model. They used to sell engines under their brand name for a while. I don't think they manufactured them. That engine looks familiar.

RE: Thunder Tiger 130 Four Stroke

I have a different opinion as to the power of the TT130. Let me digress a bit. My saito 115 out turns my OS110a with a 14x8 JXF by about 200~300rpm.The 115 is overshadowed by the saito125 turning a...
