RE: RC Report Online!! For Real!!

I will miss the old R/C Report as well and look forward to the new format. I'm sure it's already been thought of but some of the advertising could be enhanced and it would benefit everyone. Many...

RE: Servo wire Crimping tool and connetors

I have both styles of crimper. I agree that the sort that has multiple hinge points so the jaws stay parallel is vastly superior. Mine look very much like the ones pictured in the link above. As...

RE: Copperhead Aviation Stiffy question

I got the hacker combo for equipment. The ballance is per the instructions. I imagine the trim issues all centered around the breeze. As I said, this is my first electric and first aiplane in this...

RE: Copperhead Aviation Stiffy question

I did fly it, but haven't attempted to shrink the skin. My flight was successful. I had thought the wind was down to a minimum but it was still sufficient to toss it around pretty good. This is my...

RE: brison 2.6

I know of a couple of guys locally that have had Brison 2.6's. I don't think they were really popular or marketed aggresively since they are basically a 3.2 that wasn't bored out. Simply equal or...

RE: snapped landing gear on the OMP Yak 54

Not yet Steve but it gets closer everyday. I did get the Mojo 60 that was in process when I got the kit done though. BTW that piece of wood was missing, you've got quite a good memory!

RE: Good 3D prop Saito 72 ?????

I sure liked mine with a 14x4W. I'll admit that I never tried anything else though, can't imagine it could be much better.

RE: OMP 80" Edge Building Tips

I discovered an easy way to keep those root ribs dead nuts straight when building my 65" Yak. I found a piece of aluminum angle in my shop that was longer than the rib. I simply clamped it in a...

RE: ST125MG problem...

FWIW I picked up four of these for a new project last week. They all went back to the LHS the next day for another servo choice. I found the movement erratic and acted like the pots were dirty. They...

RE: OMP foam core fuse repair

Thanks for the ideas guys. I guess I never considered using a router to just barely remove the skin. I have access to just such tools, sounds like the way to go. I think I will still get a backup...

OMP foam core fuse repair

I have the OMP 65" Yak and love it. I got a little carried away and damaged the fuse. Not too bad but wrinkled the sheeting on one side just behind the wing. I'm still flying it but if it survives...
