RE: Bragging about the .55 AX

my first plane was a SIG LT-40 kit, and my second plane was a Hanger 9 F-22 ARF.

I did not take a single thing out of the LT-40 to get the F-22 in the air.

RE: DX7 heli for airplane use

To enable the ratcheting, you add a little metal bar which should have been in the box with the radio.

I personally don't like the ratcheting after trying both.

RE: Can I use car fuel in my plane?

If all you have is car fuel, and you can't get proper fuel, you can get some castor oil down at the pharmacy and add it to the car fuel. You will just be mixing your own fuel then.

RE: QUESTION - Flying near an AMA field?

Is one cylinder enough to fly the plane, or will it just give enough power to gracefully crash instead of a full crash?
