RE: OS 91 for the 47 Edge 540 V3 ARF

I'm running a saito 82 with a 14x4 wooden prop. I would like to try a non-wood prop. I cant find one that has a hole 7mm or smaller. Is there one?
If one exists please tell me where I can buy it....

RE: OS 91 for the 47 Edge 540 V3 ARF

Thanks Mike, your advice came in time, as I haven't mounted the engine yet. I realize the components can be moved

RE: Hangar 9 Tribute 36 --PnP ??

Negative, balance it with an empty tank. Keep in mind that this is the initial balance. If hovering is your thing you will probably find that a little weight on the tail works wonders. So does a...

Hello again Yaniel,
The 36 engine has been tried and proven. The 11x4 prop is the correct one. The engine must be tuned properly. I use 20-20 fuel for max power. This, of course, will require...

RE: sig 4* 40

Hi again guys, thanks for the response. Everything checks out ok. So the problem is probably due to the nut behind the control box. I am not overcontrolling. Just the opposite. The plane doesn't...

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

Hi Takevin, Since I'm on my 3rd fuselage I like your idea of inserting a 1/4" square dowell into it. But since both ends of the fuse have cemented plugs in them I don't know how this can be done. If...

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

Hello slo-v flyer, I called the boys at parkzone and they agree that the problem is the receiver. They said,
