How high can a Firebird XL go?

I'd say I could get the Firbird out of sight too (of course the cheesy radio that came with it might be a limiting factor).

Thanks for the info

Timers for my charger

Thanks redscho,

Is there an easy way to check this condition?

Good to Go!

Thanks for the help. My Firebird batteries are good as ever after I got a charger that could slow charge them. The Pico Stick batteries are also good to go but I found part of the problem was the...

Price Correction

Well, I may owe the folks at Lanier an appology. The Mariner is on Tower's site for $259.99. That's a lot more like it.

Lanier Mariner list price $450

Ok is it just me or is that just a little bit high for a 40 size ARF. You can get an ACE Seamaster for $200. Is the Mariner $250 better than the Seamaster (which by the way can be converted to fly...

Problem with radio hit's

I would check a couple of things. First I would use a nylon clevis on the engine throttle. Any metal on metal vibration could be the cause of your problem. Second try your range check again with the...

GP Supersportster 40 ARF

I put an OS 46FX in mine, and it does well over 80 mph. When you throttle back it's a real kitten. If your set on a 4 stroke the 52 would fly it fine. I know Saito makes great engines but they take...

I agree it would be fun. I'm just thinking there has to be a cheaper way. Maybe not. I guess a laser range finder would be out of the ball park expensive although very accurate. On second thought the...

Cool

That is a neat system and would certainly do what I want. I wonder if it can be done a little cheaper than $125?
