RE: Internet Brands-Owners of RCU-Everyone Send complaint - link here

Same here. My "had-enough-of this-nonresponsive BS" switch just flipped. You can't abuse people's goodwill like this and expect them to keep accepting it forever.

RE: Twisted tail on foam corvalis

Its not a fatal flaw - it will fly like that, but wouldn't track true through thing like loops and 8's and will probably have a slight bias favoring one turn direction.

RE: Determining AWG of silicon wires (using four, 4 cell 5800mAH LiPo)

A million lipos in parallel won't increase the current draw of an attached load. Any given motor, with any given prop, at any given RPM will only draw in watts what it takes to maintain the load.

RE: Help! Sanded a pinhole in my Kovall, gotta start over

Unless your finish is clear or translucent, a small silkspan patch will sand/feather out to the point where its virtually unnoticeable.

RE: How to cut wing ribs

If they have any thickness to them, I use a router table(s) - the "poor man's laser cutter".

Make one really good template out of 1/4" ply, then tack glue a stack maybe 1/2"-3/4" high (too high...

RE: Kadet Mark 2 Wing Ribs

The K-Mk2's general rib profile differs only in the width of spar notch and tiny LE/TE shortening to account for any LE/TE/spar doublers. The wing is flat bottom, constant chord and thickness out to...

TANSTAAFL. You paid for the electricity in increased fuel costs to constantly bring your auto battery back up.

RE: Prop tutorial?

You'll also want to look at the general configuration of the plane to get a sense of what end of the available pitch/diameter spectrum you'll be wanting to sample from.

RE: 30 second countdown clock,anyone got some plans?

RE: Norvel 049 engine

$20-$25 or so...maybe. You gotta find someone who wants it and is willing to take a risk on a used engine of indeterminate origin, level of abuse, etc. The Norvel's are common enough that they're...

RE: Where to live?

Ummm...the amount of money you're allowed to keep in your pocket directly affects quality of life.

I fled CA back in the mid-80's. Don't regret it at all.

RE: Texas R/C Planes Drastick .60 Size

The plane won't last long if you do this. They are VERY light, and VERY fragile.

RE: Taper Cuts on Light Ply

If its something like a fuse bottom on a box fuse, I usually rough cut'em glue everything up, then use a router table with a trim bit. The fuse box sides guiding the trim bit will make a flush cut.

RE: Minwax Hi Performance Wood Filler

I've been using Gorilla glue lately as a filler "base" for small dings. Put a dab on, rub it in a bit with a pop sickle stick, let it set for about 1.5hr or so, then trim/sand. The resultant...

RE: Combat/Stunt for Fox 35

Before slow combat was dropped as an official event a while back, there wasn't much difference in performance between a slow plane and a fast one. Both were very fast and high performance. The only...

RE: EVO .60NX muffler gaskets

The old air cooled VW flat 4 beetle engine used no gaskets, O-rings, or sealer of any kind between its crank case halves. They were machined flat, bolted to spec, and didn't leak oil.

I've got ABC's with 20+ hours on them that aren't that discolored. That engine obviously has more than one tank through it.

No. Water, methanol, and the glycol based synthetics are miscible. Without a chem lab you won't be able to separate them.

I routinely add splashes of old/unknown fuels into new stuff to get...

If you breaking 0012 ribs, consider using slightly heavier balsa or just doing a 1/64" ply lamination prior to cutting them. I've found gorilla glue to be outstanding for this sort of rib...
