RE: Vectorflight extra 300, which size

Given that both the 58" and 66" are intended to be flown with a 60 2cy to 100 4cy, I think a strong ball-bearing .61 would be more than adequate for the 58". Stay away from the cheapies and...

RE: crash causes? Vote!

Never had one fail because I've never used them (after my first trainer).

RE: Anyone else spruce up their Robart wheels?

Dude, you did an awesome job on that P38 nosewheel. Looks almost like the real thing :D

Seriously though... ya, I've always hated the casting flash on the Robarts... can't imagine why they...

RE: U-Can-Do .40 stab failure

It all depends on the plane.
Remember the 56" span Global/Modeltech P47? That was a .40 sized model, but the recommended 4-stroke was .70-.91.
Mine flew like a brick with the .91. It was fast...

RE: Dual Tank Mod

Not being familiar with the chassis, you're on your own there. Tank #2 (the furthest away from the carb) should be at or slightly below the level of tank #1 so it doesn't siphon through and out the...

RE: Hitec Flash 5 Elevon mixing trim ?

Mixing isn't turned off, it just a matter of where the EPA happens in the mix.

When setting an EPA, you are setting the EPA for the channel, not for the control stick. This is why you actually...

RE: Dual Tank Mod

No pictures, but it's pretty simple. We do it in airplanes and helicopters all the time.

I'll call tank #1 the tank closest to the engine, and tank #2 the second tank.

Each tank has two...

RE: hobbytown usa

They opened one near me that lasted less than a year. The airplane section was about the size of the cash register cubicle at a convenience store, and their stock was very poor. I tried to special...

RE: How do you match preexsisting holes for a new cowl?

Reach inside the tank area and put something through the blind nut (like a sharpened screw) to mark the inside of the new cowl?

RE: Off Comment Joke Saved a Plane

LOL! Like the F1 rule that the cars had to be at (or above) a specific ground clearance when leaving the pit area.
The verbage "when leaving the pit area" was to indicate that the spec was to be...

Someone with an incredibly overpowered plane that will self-destruct in level flight at full throttle?

RE: Prop for an OS 1.08 on the CG Extra300

Running a 16x6 here. I don't dare fly straight and level for more than a short run at full throttle, has excellent vertical.
I do run a Perry pump driven by case pressure.

Hmm... not aileron, but throttle/elevator mixing could be used to combat thrust angle problems :D

RE: mechanical retracts? Are they durable?

Mechanical or pneumatic makes no difference, the problem is the gear wires tend to flex more, even with the little coils. My buddy's P51 lasted exactly one landing on grass before he couldn't...

RE: VectorFlight Sukhoi ARF tips wanted

Took the plunge and ordered one. Been spending the last few evenings working on it.
Sweet model!

RE: First 3D ARF???

Wow. Okay, so far, 4 votes for the UCD-60 and 4 for the new Yak.

Has anyone actually had a chance to fly the Yak, or are you guys judging based on the video?
If a YS-110 is actually powering...

RE: Here it is,EDF Boeing 717-200

Same as with glow... adjust the motor's timing. It used to be easy on glow engines. Most bearing-equipped engines had a separate nose/shaft support casting. Removing that (which held the carb) and...

RE: First 3D ARF???

I wasn't aware of the Flip, but wouldn't the 110 be a bit much for it? It is reported to rock on a YS 63.

First 3D ARF???

Looking for a good first 3D model.
Must be an ARF, and prefer to power it with a YS 110.

The poll lists models that appear to be decent choices, but those of you with some experience would...

RE: Here it is,EDF Boeing 717-200

Ya... pusher works and is very scale. I've seen quite a few '80s using a pair of .049 cox motors pushing 3-bladers.
LOL! You could even cheat and say it's a model of the old MD88 "UHB"...

RE: Packing a box 101 (Warning Rant)
