RE: JR 9303

I have currently or have used dozens of the ScanSelect rxs. Never had a single glitch yet. I could certainly see one bad receiver but I wonder if you may have an intermittent problem with tx...

RE: Looking for interest in winch product

Sounds interesting. I would think that this would take a little getting used to for guys that have winched for a long time. If the cost was not too expensive I would be interested in one just to...

Gorgeous!

I have a NIB Hybrid Detect and IIRC they are from the same family. What power system are you using?

RE: how much flight time of a discus launch

Maybe something like a Skeeter or Climaxx? I have a friend that them and has excellent flights with them. Both are kits or can be built from plans. There are a lot of cheap kits and plans out there.

RE: how much flight time of a discus launch

RE: how much flight time of a discus launch

Longest DLG flight so far is about 28 minutes. I only started DLGs about 3 weeks ago though I have flown RC sailplanes since the late 70's. Model was a Photon II.

RE: Towing gliders to altitude, risky?

Rock,

Yeah, I figured your were joking.:)

RE: Towing gliders to altitude, risky?

Actually, it's not that risky and in some ways much easier on the sailplane than winching. To qualify what I am saying about it not being risky:

It does require a certain amount of experience...

Yep Tim,

I am beginning to suspect a bigger issue here. Both of my 10xs are having problems and they were just returned from being serviced (onboard Lith battery replaced). NOT by JR but a...

RE: can someone recognize this aircraft

I and a friend built a Long-Eze, starting in 1981 and finished around 1989. The nose down parking served several purposes. Mainly, as mentioned is the tendency to fall back without pilot weight. ...

I am sure you are right about where to stand on the slope but in the above referenced situation the "Authorities" would not let anyone near the site anyway.[:@]
