I too am new to flying this year, and have had my Nexstar up for about 25 flights. I ripped the AFS and radio, and installed the 6EXA before I ever started the engine. (Got $125 for the stock Tx....

NexStar replacement prop

The NexStar comes with an 11x5 prop. I found the plane to be a little mushy in any kind of wind over 10 mph. I managed to ding my prop pretty good the other day, and went to replace it with a Master...

RE: Any Hobbico NexSTAR CRASHES or MISHAPS???

Be careful with the AFS! It looks at light differences, and depending on the angle of the sun, can get very confused. There are specific instructions for this in the manual.

I am not going to...

RE: Any Hobbico NexSTAR CRASHES or MISHAPS???

I was out last Saturday, and just as I was completing a left turn with a crosswind from the left, it snapped right over on me. Luckily I had altitude, and was still on the buddy box. Only have had a...

RE: Any Hobbico NexSTAR CRASHES or MISHAPS???

I have been flying mine for a few weeks, and after timing it on the ground at full throttle, I get 12 minutes to a tank. I have noticed an engine sputter though on 1/2 tank. We noticed air bubbles...

My Lil' Rascal took a dirt dive

RE: Any Hobbico NexSTAR CRASHES or MISHAPS???

RE: Any Hobbico NexSTAR CRASHES or MISHAPS???

Well good for you, personally, I dont believe in the AFS for myself either. That is where they may deny your claim. Good luck, and keep us posted!

RE: Sig Li'l Rascal wing modification

Great! Thanks. We got a douse of snow today, but as soon as it clears up, and Tower delivers my 7x6 props, back in the ait I go. I think I'll stick with the tape for a few test flights, just to make...

RE: Any Hobbico NexSTAR CRASHES or MISHAPS???

There is about a 2 second delay when switching from Trainer to Trainee or vice-versa. I noticed this when matching up the trim settings between my 6XEA and my 4YF buddy box. Add that to the reaction...

RE: GP Extra 300S .40 kit engine dilemma

Can't say from experience, but from what I have read, the .40 is a bit underpowered. The smallest I have heard being put in is the OS .46 FX. There are some folks that went with the .46 LA, but...
