RE: Century 50NX?

I was planning on using the 50nx for the mechanics on a Hughes 500D fuselage. I keep reading that century heli's have very low maintenance over other brands. I don't like the wire drive on the tail...

Century 50NX?

I was wondering if anyone out there has one? I tend to go against the grain and not jump on "band wagons", so with that said... I'm pretty impressed with the design and style. I'm just fishing for...

RE: Merlyn by skybench?

I'm pretty sure I can build one for less than $250, just a little time spent cutting out a template for the plasma cutter. The starter motor will likely be the most expensive part, but worth making...

RE: Merlyn by skybench?

Where I fly and my style is thermal hunting, I have a MEN gobbler kit if I want a racy ship. But aside from that I think the suggestion of ballast mods is a great idea. Up here in the northeast we...

RE: Need advice on first sailplane.

It's a great plane to learn on, I would choose a .049~.10 tops for the pod. If you can find a AP .09 then get it, I think hobby people sell it still. That will pull it with authority, but if you want...

RE: Getting back into the hobby - advice solicited

I second the airtronics, it's super lite and has so much more going for it in the programing department and lower voltage brown-out conditions that it's my #1 choice right now. I started out on...

RE: Need advice on first sailplane.

Yup, a powerpod will rob performance, but for learning to fly the glider it's a great way to get in the air safely. A histart if done incorrectly will result in a dead sailplane in short order. The...

RE: Merlyn by skybench?

Hmm, I might have to do a little research, but if thats the only issues, I might just go ahead and order the "balsa overcast" merlyn and start a build thread on it. I think the selig 3014 wing option...

RE: Bird of time

I hope you ment the BOT is what inspires people to build the sailplane, not me.. I don't think I'm that great at building. Here is the wing mod I also did to make the wing bolt on with just 2 rear...

RE: Bird of time

I added spoilers to mine, 3 bays long and 1&1/4" trailing edge stock, operated by 2 micro servos at the root of the wing via a pair of kevlar cables inside the small .030 sulivans cable tube. I have...

RE: Bird of time

I guess it really depends on how you want it to look, if you want to keep the nose clean and use a spinner, use a motor that fits within and changing the front profile to suit. If you don't care if...

RE: First thermal?

My first thermal was a small encounter, I remember flying the tracks back and forth across the field, at one point I saw the wiggle of the wings. I never found it again on that flight, the next...

RE: glider kits

Perhaps you should think of your fields first and then pick a glider that can suit the area. If using a up-start or hi-start, any 2 meter ship made from traditional construction will do, (no...

RE: Wing Sanding

A small 5.5 is for most shaping, the 11" is the most used sanding bar I own, and the 22" is only used for sanding ribs even and leading edges. I even have the contour sander, but rarely use it,...

RE: New Great Planes Waco?

Get the larger motor, it's going to need the power for the drag and the weight to help balance it.
