RE: DA / DL observation

I am the kind of guy who calls a spade a spade, my words are from my experience with the DA and DL/DLE engines. I dont really care if I upset the DA fanboys but people have to realise that sometimes...

RE: DA / DL observation

The problem DA face over the DL and DLE is power, the DA are just not that powerful, I do not own a 60 and perhaps it is an ok power'd engine but no matter how you want to sugar coat it every 88/89...

RE: What seperates the diffrent typs of 3D Birds

Profiles are the ugly birds which look like a piece of 1/2inch timber cut to the profile of a plane and then with the wing bolted on. Mojo Pics

RE: What seperates the diffrent typs of 3D Birds

RE: Ignition Battery Voltage Question

NiMh is not a bad technology, but there are simpler technologies out there these days, I have lost more Nicd and Nimh cells than A123 or LIFE cells. Yes I have been using them for a shorter amount...

RE: EF Chin Yak engine/servo setup help

Thumbskull the Supertigre is known for its power when coupled to a descent pipe, the OS 55 will not respond as well to a pipe, the OS is also no powerhouse and requires a ridiculous plug to be...

RE: 3D airframe for Saito 82

RE: 3D airframe for Saito 82

Windy, your a reasonalble dude, I said it would not be a 3d machine but it will 3d, if you put a bigger motor in the showtime it will make a bad plane even worse.

RE: 3D airframe for Saito 82

Simple as this, you may not be able to 3d with that engine but a better pilot may, I do not get you Americans, do you want him to put a DA upfront there.

RE: 3D airframe for Saito 82

The showtime will 3d with an 82, it will not be a 3d powerhouse but it will do it, no real need to beef up the undercarriage, just land it correctly!!
