3w-150 Has not ben run in a couple years

Hello,

I'm sure this has been brought up before, but I have been unable to find the answer. I have a 3w-150 that has been sitting for a couple years, and now I am trying to get it going. The issue...

RE: Troy Built Models (doin' me wrong)

So is TBM supposed to guarantee delivery? Yes, yes and Yes! If I pay a mail order company to ship a product to me, then they are responsible for getting it to me. If they cannot get it to me, then I...

RE: H-9 Extra 260

Does anyone know the weight savings that is possible going to carbon fiber gear and wing tube?

I am considering changing from NiMH batteries to Lithium and will save some weight here. So I am...

RE: 28x10 Mejlik vs Vess 28???

I don't remember.

50cc prop I purchased. I remember going to the manufacturers web site and getting a headache over the A,B, C thing. Not saying the ABCs are bad, I just can't relate to it. My...

RE: 28x10 Mejlik vs Vess 28???

For me I found the Vess prop to be a bit of a gimmick. Wasn't a bad prop, just isn't anything special. I have been happy with my Mejzlik 28x10 on the 3W106. I fly mostly 3D.

I know this will not...

RE: H-9 Extra 260

Hello,

I have the 106 in mine. Nothing special to mount it, and I am using the standard aluminum 3W header on mine with the 55cc cans. The cans are a lot smaller than the holes in the fuse. So I...

RE: H-9 Extra 260

I don't have my canopy vented and have had no issues with it warping. Mine is from the first shipment and I have no noticeable glue on on the wings. I have flown this plane a bunch and was on the...

RE: 35% H9 Extra 260 Maiden - I stand Corrected

Congrats on the plane Anthony!

I guess they are not all the same.

I have a bunch of flights on mine, and it is doing fine. Only issues are the axles are too small, and the stab tube did get...

RE: Hanger vs. Aeroworks - 35% extra 260

Price advantage goes to the H9. You can get a great deal through your local hobby shop and pay no shipping.

Just a thought...

RE: H-9 Extra 260

Mine has done the same thing, but I have't removed the screw yet. I am guessing it is from the visor. Either way, I think mine is destined to loose his head!

RE: H-9 Extra 260

Thanks for sharing. Very clean install.

Yours is 3lbs lighter than mine! I have the 3W106 and cans, also have NiMH packs. I agree, the DA85 looks to be the best choice. Loose 2-3 lbs, save some...

RE: H-9 Extra 260

I can't imagine how this plane flys at 24lbs. Mine feels super light at 27lbs.

How does the DA85 pull it? I imagine it was easy to balance with that engine, as my flight batteries are behind the...

I plan to keep beating on mine, and fly IMAC with it. Holding up fine so far.

RE: H-9 Extra 260

Good question, I would like to know as well.

I have about 40 flights on mine now. No glue on the wings, no wrinkled sheeting. I did have to tighten up the stab tube, but that was an easy and...

RE: Wild Hare 29% Sukhoi Build

I have had similar damage to mine as well. Had a bad recovery from a poorly done 3D snap at very low altitude, made a hard landing and broke the plywood gear plate. I pulled the fiberglass canister...

I have about thirty flights on mine now. The CG and mixes are just right and the plane is performing real well. I have not yet changed the throws or expo from the ones in the manual, seams to be near...

RE: 35% Extra 260 trimming question

With the open structure of the aileron, heating the covering will sometimes warp an aileron. Sight down the aileron from the root and tip to see if you can detect anything.

If you find...

RE: H-9 Extra 260

Here is where I'm at after moving the CG back a little more. I did have to compensate just like you said above for pitch. My CG is now hands off on an inverted 45 degree up line. I do have to push...

RE: H-9 Extra 260

I thought his name was Roscoe?

No wonder he hasn't been listening to me!

Mine has no glue at all, quality overall is very good.

RE: H-9 Extra 260

When I mounted my 3W-106, I just measured from the lines on the firewall and drilled at where the lines crossed.

In other words, get the deminsions from the AI site. Divide by two, and measure...
