Great Planes Ryan Electric

Haven’t built or flown this model but sure would appreciate any info from those who may have. I really like the Ryan – Spirit of St. Louis airplane due to its high-wing configuration and the...

Totally new, need help in deciding

SIG is a top manufacturer and you can be confident of getting good stuff from them.

I like the Futaba 4-channel FM. Any aircraft channel (frequency) UNLESS there is some serious RF interference...

fx vs. sf? that is the question

I agree w/ FHHuber and if everything (price, age of motor, etc) was equal the OS .61SF would be my choice. In reality everything is not equal though and for sport flying I’d go w/ the FX due to its...

Totally new, need help in deciding

Been in RC for about 7 years however I've only built one electric. It was a Sig Mirage 550, a nice building kit but as practically all my experience was with gassies, I felt it was underpowered,...

Check your "Six" ?

What is mean by the phrase “check your six” (aeronautically speaking, not arithmetically speaking).

I think it must refer to the area directly <u>behind</u> the pilot or does it mean the area...

I'm not sure what plane-radio-motor combo that you may be using but in general you don't need the extra battery power for the receiver if you already have a motor battery BUT I’D NEVER (well almost...

What is the best way to launch a glider?

i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
Rather than a strict Glider aircraft how about a "Powered- sailplane"?

I built at least 4 Goldberg "Gentle Lady" gliders and attempted to launch them using...

hinging

Ditto on Daveo's comments!

I had a 40 Duraplane in which I successfully replaced the aileron hinges (twice, on one wing) by simply shaving off the old remaining hinges and cutting new hinge...

Tail Draggers and Rough Fields

Actually, a tail dragger configuration is recomended over a tricycle one for models operating from "rough" fields. This is primarily because the steerable landing gear in the nose must be longer to...

What Trainer

I totally and absolutely agree w/ Ross, ballgunner, and FHH that Sig's LT-40 in either the kit version or the ARF is an excellent choice that you'll not regret making.

I fly a LT-40 ARF powered...

Wright Flyer

There doesn't seem to be much interest (or demand for) an RC model of the famous Wright Flyer. I'd guess that most modellers shy from this famous machine because it'd not be easy to construct, would...

covering tight

Try using a heat gun (I bought mine from Tower Hobbies) to tighten the covering on your Avastar. A Hair dryer just doesn't produce enough heat. The heat gun, which looks like a hair dryer, works...

Awesome pics!!!

Yikes!

A 4-channel trainer remains a challenge to build properly for me. The builders of this jet must be some kind of craftsmen/engineers!

The model is indeed a marvelous beast. I'd sure...

RC Airport's Hellfire Game

After days of trying, I finally broke 10,000 on RC Airport's Hellfire game- Ace level (scored 17,500)!

I'd rather been at the field flying but the wind was a bit strong for this pilot.

club instructors - flight school

I was not very clear in my orginal post RE: "R/C Flight Schools". Our local club, the St. Joe Barnstormers, has been invaluable to me in learning how to build & fly model aircraft. I've received...

Congrats on making "Member".

Every since I found this board, I've wondered about the title "Junior Member".

What other grades are there?
What is their significance?
How does...

Dura-Plane with Flaps?

Has any one heard of or tried using "flaperons" with a Dura-plane?

These designs are strong birds, resistent to hanger rash, should do OK in windy conditions (I think) however they fly - or at...
