RE: funny craigslist ad

There was a guy that would come by our field with old, cheap, dirty, and useless RC stuff. He didn't know a thing about the stuff, but would haul it around to the local fields trying to sell it.

RE: Extreme Flight 47 Yak54e Motor Help!

The Turngy is a good motor for this plane.

Go with a light setup.

3s 2800mah battery (GenAce or Gforce from Value Hobby) and 14/7 APC prop.

RE: Final setup details on my new gas plane!

Get the 'tip' balance as close as possible. 'tip' balance has the the blade tips at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock position. If this is close, you will be fine.

Do you have a good balancer?

RE: Final setup details on my new gas plane!

18x8 should be fine. My buddy has a ccrc 40 and he has a 20x8 PT carbon fiber prop turning about 7500rpms. Your 18x8 should turn about 7000rpm or so, new. It will get stronger as it gets more...

RE: best way to train new pilots

I think it could be a couple of things.

1) The E trainers (apprentice, etc) have very good power to weight ratios. The extra power makes takeoffs a NON-Event.
2) The E trainers have a...

RE: best way to train new pilots

My favorite setup.
Glow - Alpha 60 with an OS or TT PRO engine.
Electric - Sig Kadet with a E-Flite 46 on 4 cells.

We train on both (Electric, Glow) as long as there is a compatible buddy...

These look nice. Especially the McCauley

25x10 or 24x12 would work on your engine.

That's the pulse line. I removed the black line, and replaced it with 1/8 ID Tygon.

It's a tight fit. The line must NOT touch the muffler or head.. it will melt. I used a...

RE: Extreme Flight 88

I have only used the Biela 23x8 2 bladed prop on a DLE55. Nice prop, IMO. It might be above 82db, however.

Here is a Biela 2 bladed prop on a DLE55, you might contact this guy and get the db...

RE: Extreme Flight 88

You could achieve 82db by going to a Biela 3 bladed CF 22x10.

Biela 2 bladed CF props are pretty quite.

RE: New .90 gas engine (15cc)

Looks like APC 15x4W is my favorite prop, to this point.

I put 6 more flights on the Mojo yesterday, and vertical performance is pretty good. The motor is transitioning better from 1/4 to 3/4...

RE: New .90 gas engine (15cc)

I was able to run mine a little more last night. I now have 5 8 oz tanks thru the engine.
