RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

As far as strut attachment at the field, I did the same as described in post #1339. Horizon didnt ever have them in stock at the time so, I ordered them through Grainger.

RE: H9 1/4 Scale Tiger Moth

It does seem to be an alright looking plane but, for that kind of money its going to have to get a whole lot more so. For almost half of the H9 version you could get the plane from troybuilt. They...

RE: Pilot RC 28% Decathlon 107

I have only looked it over once when the member first got it but, the build quality look very good. I believe he has a DA120 in it. With the flaps down on a flyby, it is amazing how slow it gets. ...

RE: Pilot RC 28% Decathlon 107

If it is anyhting like the bigger version that pilot makes, I suspect it will be pretty fun. A member of the club has the 40% and it just floats around the sky with ease. I have the RC guys 98"...

RE: NEW DLE30!

I just performed this(w/ 2 different batteries), and it looks like the module is toast. No voltage on the wires of the test extension or spark when the wires are shorted.

RE: NEW DLE30!

I dont believe it would be heating that would cause the iginition to loose all spark. It is inside the fuselage.

RE: NEW DLE30!

Ok, so I added the hardwood spacers and it reduced the needed weight to 8 ounces. Yesterday, I ran the engine for the first time. Once I got fuel to the carb it started and ran like a champ. I put...
