RE: Avistar

You shouldn't really need dual rates with the Avistar, though some expo to soften the sticks around the middle might be a good idea. That will help prevent overcontrolling while still having full...

RE: Desecration of national insignia:

Thanks for the history lesson. I wasn't aware that the prototype had carried that color scheme. Today's not wasted; I learned something. ;)

RE: Desecration of national insignia:

Honestly, I had to go back and look for a second time to notice the upside down insignia. I was laughing too hard at the "Outstanding scale looks" to notice it the first time. Exactly which model had...

RE: Can flying high speeds break apart your model?

If speed is the ultimate goal, in the .40 class you probably won't do much better than the Viper

RE: Plane won't fly.

I recommend you get your friend to help out. Have him fly it first, since it sounds like he has some experience. Then see if he has the ability to "buddybox" you to teach you to fly it. Other than...

RE: Add Telemetry or Not?

You're right, 378. And it also depends on the plane. I'd be more likely to add telemetry to my Cub than to my Little Toni. The amount of sky they cover in the second or two I looked away is what...

RE: Add Telemetry or Not?

Here's a vote in the other direction. I think of telemetry a a "Gee Whiz" function. I don't like taking my eyes off my plane long enough to look down at the timer. Plus, I would want info while the...

RE: avistar mods

RE: Transmitter Help!

The DX5 is not a computer radio, meaning that it does not allow storage of seperate models. The DX6i, on the otherhand, has a 10 model memory and would better serve your purpose. You should be able...

RE: HowTo Trim a Biplane

The 5th flight didn't have such a good ending to it. I was doing fly bys straight-n-level at 10 - 15 feet. Not trying to do a touch-n-go just checking out my visual reference points for getting the...

RE: .65LA preset for airbleed

Bax,
Thanks again for the info. I reassembled the carb, got the engine running and after setting the HSN, it took only 1/2 turn to get the mixture set. That engine screams on the top end and the...

RE: regarding a Baffle

To expand on this, the exit area should be at least twice the size of the inlet.

RE: my first build...

Build the Guillows Cub as a free flight; just follow the instructions, Then get a kit designed for RC and go for it. I would recommend you build a trainer so you can use it to learn to fly, though it...

RE: Money AMA spent on failed growth programs?

And just what do you consider to be a failure? In our youth program, a solo flight by just one of our participants is a measure of success. We may go through ten kids that don't stick it out to get...

RE: Slow down on weekends...

Did you happen to notice that the slowdowns just happen to coincide with the times most people can fly? I know the American work ethic would never permit soooooo many people using worktime to read...

RE: Decals

I've actually made custom decals on plain printer paper, glued them on with an Elmer's Glue stick and then sprayed Clear LustreKote over them. They lasted longer than the plane did(which, in a couple...

RE: EZ Connector for Throttle

Sorry for the loss, Bigshark, but that sounds more like the fault of the battery, not the EZ connector. You were still flying with the throttle stuck. It wasn't until the batttery ran out that you...

RE: What tools/parts do I need?

If you can afford it, I would recommend building the PT-40 over the PT-20. Larger planes are easier to learn on because they are: 1. easier to see, and 2. less affected by wind. The same radio gear...

RE: Anyone live in Upstate NY who could convert my Big Stik 60?

Marty might be a little far away for him, Pete. He lives in Owego ( without the "s") in the southerntier. Without looking at a map, I'd ballpark him at about 80-100 miles from Fulton. ;)
