RE: Question about tank height

Hey guys. Since I started this, I just figured I'd follow up with the outcome.

After messing around with it off and on for the last week, I finally realized that on this particular plane, the...

RE: Hypothetical building question

Thanks for the tip.

It's inside the center wing section, so as long as the alcohol doesn't eat through the Ultracote, it should be fine.

RE: Just bought another plane.

Yep. The LHS I go to puts two prices on everything. The suggested retail, and what it actually costs. Everything I bring home that's over $20 is "on sale". [8D]

RE: Hypothetical building question

Oh, I've got wood. [X(]

I picked up a bag o' balsa at the LHS last time there. I'll try the heat first. I want to make sure I don't damage the wing ribs in the process of fixing my FUBAR.

RE: Just bought another plane.

I've been in it for 2 months, and I'm currently building my 3rd plane. All are flyable.

You are not alone. ;)

RE: Hypothetical building question

Thanks. As you you probably guessed, I have done this. I wasn't sure if I would be able to cut through the epoxy with a knife, and the opening is too small to get a saw into. Dremel sounds like...

Hypothetical building question

Okay. Lets just say, for the sake of argument, you epoxied the crap out of a couple pieces of balsa and attached them to the inside of the wing (retract servo mount). After installing said servo...

RE: It's snowing, it's snowing.

We got about 8" last night, but it's all powder. Too light for skis.

Any pointers for a relatively new pilot considering flying off the snow? I assume you don't want to land too hard. :D

RE: Effect cold weather has on equipment

mesaflyer,

LCD screens don't like cold, whether it's an RC radio, or a laptop computer. The "L" in LCD stands for liquid. They can freeze, and they can be damaged if you fire them up while...

RE: ?!?Dont fly alone...

One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is shock. If something bad should happen, there's no way of knowing how bad the injury might be. If it's severe...

RE: ?!?Dont fly alone...

The "don't fly alone" that you are eluding to is in reference to safety. (e.g. you lose a finger due to a prop mishap)

It has nothing to do with your ability to fly without supervision. ;)

I'd probably use another nut as a jam nut before I'd start adding washers, but that's just me.

I also have an XP7202, and that's one of the first issues I ran into. The radio will always default to SPCM, so I had to change it to PPM for all of my receivers. Just something to remember for the...

RE: Question about tank height

Thanks, folks. As long as I'm still in the assembly phase, I think I'm going to relocate the tank. It won't be that hard to do, and I figure it's a good exercise in fabrication. If I'm going to...

RE: Question about tank height

So you're saying I shouldn't run into any issues if I mount the tank/engine at the predetermined locations?

I'm okay with relocating the tank if it will prevent problems down the road.

Okay. I've searched the forum, and read more than 10 pages of threads, so I think I know what's going on. I'm just looking for confirmation.

I love the smell of glow fuel in the morning.......

Just got done breaking in a new engine in the garage. Now, every time I walk out there, it smells like exhaust. I love it!

Does anyone else like that smell, or am I crazy?

RE: A warbird is generally a good <fill in the blank> plane

A warbird is generally a good <fill in the blank> plane

Hi all.

I'm still learning on my Alpha 40 trainer, and have already purchased an H9 Pulse XT as my second plane.

I have also been drooling over the H9 Hellcat. I'm considering picking...

Based on the plane you're looking at, I would also encourage you to set your radio for low rates while training on it. That plane is designed to be aerobatic, so it will probably be very sensitive...
