Whiplash CG


Seems kinda strange that it's still nose heavy. Did you mount the motor as far back in the horseshoe as possible? Also, how did you check the CG.? You need to use some type of straight edge...

Engine Cowlings


The reason for no cowlings on the Whiplash is simplicity...Everyone wants to go balistic, but without the headaches. We could spend more time cowling the engines, fairing the servos,...

The down left scenario is due to lack of lift when launching the Whiplash at low AOA...The pull to the left is simply the torque of the motor. Some motors develop a lot of torque but are too heavily...

Cyclon 40

What's the HP rating on that motor? Maybe that would give us a clue as to the use of any high pitch props...Any info available on the motor? It sound's like the motor turns up like a Nelson QM40...

Turbine Speeds


Yes it is true that the turbines are capable of tremendous speeds. So much so that the AMA has recognized this fact and limited their speeds to 200 mph using a speed limiter. have...

Magnum wing loading

Just curious,

What's the wing loading on that tiny airframe with that .50 and pipe combo? I think that the greatest thing that most seem to miss is that it takes a lot more to going fast than a...

Nelson Q500 props

The reason you're not getting the motor to unload in the air, is that you have it maxed on the ground. Run a larger diameter prop and see how much faster you go. You need more pull to get the max...

Whiplash Launching


With the Jett 50 screaming and an 9-8 APC prop, the Whiplash should jump right out of your hands. At the very least, a super gentle toss into the wind is all it takes. Be ready for a slight...

Proof is in the puddin'

Let's take a look at the big picture here. RPM on the ground means absolutely nothing. When was the last time anyone clocked a plane on the ground? All the talk about CL is wonderful in theory, but...

Hey Gene,

When you gonna put up that Whiplash? I noticed that you said your DD with an 8-10 sport prop would only go 139mph out of a dive. We have a guy here in Lafayette with an os 46 turning the...

HI Craig,

We have one guy here in Lafayette with a os.46 with over a hundred flights on his Whiplash. He's using an APC 9-7 prop turning over 16K on 15% nitro. The 146MPH reading on our website is...

Not too heavy


I've corrected my post to clear up any misunderstanding that may have occured about the Whiplash. We cut down a 8.8-9.25 prop to around 7.75" diameter and found that the RPM's were great,...

Jett Prop for Whiplash

Hi Gene,

For the first couple of flights on the Whiplash, give a standard 9-8 APC a go...Rick & I have tried the Whiplash with that combo and it is ballistic. We never figured that the 9" diamater...

Missile launch

Hello Jack,

Can't say I saw it down here in LA, but I remember the first missile defense test while we were still in CA. They are very spectacular when you see them on a clear night. Hope they...

Whiplash Painting


When we say no thinners, it just means don't wipe the airframe down with any lacquer based thinners. We use PPG DCC or DBC paints on our Whiplash's with excellent results. Finish up the paint...

Whiplash fuel tanks


I recently did some checking on tank sizes and you can get 2 Sullivan 2oz. oval tanks in the radio bay as saddles. Connect 'em like a DF set up with either the bubbless tank or the stock...
