RE: Carl Goldberg Extra 330 ARF

Ken

Yes, installed one servo (110 in/oz digital) per aileron, as you are considering. The structural rigidity of the aileron works well using one digital servo per wing panel.

WHOA! Don't fly that aircraft!!! You need to change tour antenna installation!!!

RE: FASST, FHSS Ranges

I believe I know what RMH means by not taping the antenna to outside of carbon fiber... if the fuselage is made of carbon fiber, like many high performance gliders, the ends of the antennas - the...

RE: FASST, FHSS Ranges

RE: FASST, FHSS Ranges

RE: FASST, FHSS Ranges

RE: FASST, FHSS Ranges

Yes more like the second drawing, but also the wires could be spread out in a "Y" like the heli folks do. Actually it does not matter if the coaxial (insulated) part of the antennas are installed...

RE: FASST, FHSS Ranges

RE: DDD head for ST75/90 four bolt head.

RE: Carb upgrade for PAW .40?

I have the PAW 0.49 TBR RC. Slightly larger than the 0.40, but I want to try the MVVS carb. Is there a part number or reference number for the MVVS 20-40 RC carb that you used? Thanks.
