RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

Maidened today. 2 flights. It flies very well, but it needs up thrust on the engine. Eyeballing it I was at 0 or .5 deg up. I think it needs 1.5-2 degrees up thrust. CG with the Slimline pitts,...

Glad the Supreme is working out for you. I think the glitchy ones are the Electrons but I had a Supreme that did too. I think our field is prone to interferance. Tks for the report, I wont be so...

RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

Sounds like your kit had no hardware, I was lucky and all the stuff in my kit was usable. Just had to add engine and radio gear.

If you have any glitches with that receiver land right away! ...

RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

Whoa, aren't R/C boats just as big money pits as full scale boats? I know my 1/10 scale race car would have bankrupt me (I could not keep up with the rich parent sponsored 14 year-olds), so I went...

RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

Wow, did ya ever fly it? Seems I remember you were selling it. Not wanting to add any dead weight, my balance is with the stock DL mufler. The wrap around pitts should add 6+ oz to the nose then...

RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

Darryl-e, exactly where is your CG? Looks like mine will be about 1" behind the wing tube dry, maybe a bit closer to the tube if I put a cheap cast spinner on. Just wondering if it is in the...

RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

132 oz should be fine. I've used HT 545mg in ailerons on 14 lb 80" wing aerobats w/o a problem. Those were like 76 oz. Was doing full 3D. If you're worried just use a little shorter arm on the...

RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

10 inch is too much pitch for 3d for a plane this size. 23x8 is my favorite for 50cc aerobats. Too bad I cant find a 24x6.

It's also too bad the plane have all these different versions. I...

RE: nitro models 50cc yak??? the good/bad/ugly???

I have the "good" version of this plane, the same as Dreamin Hemi. Did anyone else have a problem with the rudder linkage interfering with the elevators on 3d rates in the stock pull-pull location? ...

RE: Nitro Models 50cc Yak 54 Red & Yellow Differences

Yeah, its a no-brainer. Too bad RC Blimp is no more, would have loved to use a titanium tailwheel bracket. Might take the one I have off my SD Extra 260 if this Yak flies like a Yak should....

RE: Nitro Models 50cc Yak 54 Red & Yellow Differences

I have the yellow one and it is identical to the red one, just a different sceme. Servos in the stab, clear canopy, good ball-link hardware, steel double horns, etc. I was disappointed the red one...

RE: SD Aviation Models

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!

My first reaction is this can't be good for us consumers. Isn't TT a little slow with parts support? I hope they prove me wrong.

RE: Is there a quite DA-85

Any canister will be more quiet than a basic in cowl muffler. I used a KS header and made my own canister out of aerosol cans. My canister weighs 7.5 oz. Very quite, er quiet.:)

RE: EXTREME TOC/SD MODELS 260

You can't go wrong with any SD models plane. I have this one and once properly trimmed its a joy to fly. The Yak is a bit straighter on knife-edge, like all Yaks.

RE: Extra 260 (SD-models) trim question

This plane definitely needs up thrust on the engine. I've got a standard thickness 1/4-20 washer plus a thin one under the lower standoffs. Looks like about 1.5 degrees of up thrust. What you...

RE: Which size 80cc single or 100cc twin

If money is no object the 100 is smooth. But, the engine costs more, the mufflers/canister sys is literally twice as much. I think the addition cost ($600) is only buying a little less vibration...

RE: saito 1.80 vs magnum 1.80

If you need a 4 stroke, the Saito is a performer and if you lube the bearing with afterrun, it will last forever. If you still want performance and want to save some money, an OS 160 would be the...

RE: DL50 ignition pack

I use a 900 mah 4 cell AAA pack. Uses 50 mah per 12 min flight. Weighs like 1.5 ozs.

RE: DL-50 engine

Man!, I should have kept my Global .60 Raven. It had 32oz/sq'. 9 lbs with 650 sq' wing. On a serious note, not much fun. Unless I was 1/2 throttle or above, it was losing altitude. Yeah, snaps...

RE: DL-50 engine

That edge looks to be good @ 12 lbs. Too bad the ailerons aren't longer. I still think its a bit small for a DL, but no doubt it will still fly. We had a .40 size Lancair with a YS 120 in it at the...

RE: DL-50 engine

That Pitts looks nice, How does it fly? Another friend has a GP Pitts with a DA50 and it will do basic aerobatics, not a floater.

RE: DL-50 engine

If that Edge is designed like the other modern laser cut super light 2mm ply built planes (ala Extreme Flight) it might be sub 12 lbs with a light glow OS 160. Might even be fun. Start teetering...

RE: DL-50 engine

Yeah, I don't think It would fly well with a Saito. But, I bet a Big Gulp that that plane will be nowhere near 11.5 lbs with a SPE 40. You should buy a lottery ticket if you can get it under 15.
