I had the old Ultra Sport .40 ARF many years ago, long before is was discontinued. It was probably the best flying airplane I've ever had. Glad to see that it's been revitalized!

Back in the day, Futaba, JR and Airtronics were pretty much the only choices out there. Poor reliability and support can can kill a mighty 400 pound gorilla.

Good points. It would not be an iron-clad case, but the FAA might just get pissed enough to try to make an example of him.

Since he is making $30,000 plus per month flying drones, the FAA may decide that he is a commercial sUAV operator. Perhaps the FAA should look into his actions, and his sAUV pilot qualifications (or...

It is hard to say. A tuned pipe will give you extra RPMs, which will probably equate to extra speed. How much speed you will get is dependent on a number of variables, such as aircraft weight, the...
