The short instructions using the Hansen crimper that has worked perfectly for me for years:
1. Use the Deluxe crimper, not the economy one.

But you should probably grab all the spare receivers you want ASAP.
The moment Hitec decides that sales of receivers are dropping, you can bet that they will go away as well.
While you're at it, I...

I've been using the Hansen Hobbies Deluxe Crimper for years (which looks identical to the SN28-B, and might in fact be the same thing but rebranded).
I probably screwed up a first few, but I quickly...

As far as I'm concerned, the ONLY great option to update the EVO 12 is with the XPS conversion 2.4Mhz module.
It's inexpensive to start with, the XPS receivers and accessories are reasonable as...

Get the better crimper along with the wire and connectors and you'll never look back.

If kept in a dry environment (just in a garage is fine... doesn't have to be air conditioned), Balsa should be like ammunition. Good until needed.

I've got a stash that's almost 35 years old and...

I would reconsider putting a G26 into any biplane unless it's on the smallish side.
Biplanes in general require more power to fly well than their same size counterpart mono-wings.

How about a 1/4...

Appowner nailed it.
You can't fix anything unless you start with establishing the correct CG balance first.

I'll generally agree with that.

I think there are quite a few builders out here. There are many kits I wished I would have stockpiled in the past to build them "later", but they're mostly gone now. The ones I did stockpile are all...

Rusty, I think a lot of people use no ailerons or just ailerons, so your request for flaps and aileron DIMS may not have applied to a lot of TM owners.

For my part, my old-school TM Senior I built...

To throw in an old-school reference here, take a look at a Zenoah G-23, an engine that has been around a very long time with the dependability record to go with it.

Another plane just begging for a VT-240 along with some additional dummy cylinders. In 1/4 Scale, of course.

RE: UAV/Drone

I'd like to know that myself.

So, have you thought to ask your neighbor where he bought it and come back and let US know?

RE: fpv camera in cockpit. Does this give me enough view?

I hate to belabor the obvious, but I am myself a glo/gas engine fanboy having done very little with electrics.

But the thought immediately occurs to me that if a person wants to go FPV, then...

RE: What watt meter?

I'm using and like the Wattsup. It handles any current load I've needed up to now, and if I ever need to measure higher load products, I'll just add a shunt.
There are quite a few options for watt...

RE: Sig Astro Hog @ 150% ?

Recheck your computations; increasing the Hog from 84" by 150% would be 126" wingspan, not 210".

I think the Astro Hog at a 126" wingspan (basically 10 feet) would be a great flying airplane,...

RE: Nosen citabria engine

I've built several airplanes from A&A. Two of the Citabria and one of the big Champ. Each of them flew very strong with Q42's, and that engine cowled in very nicely needing only the bottom of the...

RE: Spurce vs Basswood

I have access to a lot of Basswood so I can cull it looking for "arrow straight grain" pieces.
I often enough find 10 ft. pieces where the grain goes end to end without dropping off the side.

RE: Pushrods or Cables?

I've used both methods on my giants, and I have no preference.
Either, when done right, work well.

For smaller airplanes, pushrods are so much simpler and trouble free, not to mention that...

RE: Mounting the Zenoah G-38

The G-38 doesn't care how it's mounted. It'll suck fuel, start, and run in any position.

It's almost always mounted with the cylinder pointing down in scale applications, but that's mainly so...
