As some of us see it, a new organization isn't really what's needed. What is needed is an officer core that tells the members the truth and spends the available funds efficiently. What the...

I would contact Jerry Dunlap here in the forum on the engine. He's designed, built and raced outboard hulls for decades and, if anyone knows about that engine, he would. As far as the hull, Prather...

Astro, I labeled it as such because there were a few posts that got a little "snippy" and I was only trying to calm things back down before it really got "hot". I am actually enjoying this thread...

Okay guys, let's keep the thread on track. It's not degraded into an attack thread and I'm sure most would want to keep it that way. A few posts have gotten a bit "heated" and we don't need that...

You started the thread just fine. You gave an opinion and invited others to give theirs, nothing wrong with that. It's when a thread gets personal that things go bad. As long as this thread keeps...

I'm thinking it's too small of servo as well. I just looked it up and the 2080 is a 41.7in/oz servo when using 6volts. Looking at the picture Got RPM posted, I can see why the servo failed in a...

Not to be argumentative, Aymodeler, but it sounds like you're describing someone that has driven the same 1957 Chevy since he first got a license and, even with the modern cars being more efficient...

You just kind of identified the problem. Generally speaking, most don't understand radios and how RF works. 27, 50, 72 and 75MHz are just numbers to identify the band. They don't understand that...

It's not that the radio won't work, it's the frequency being used. I know, back in 1984, I was listening to a Houston Astros game in the Indian Ocean on an HF radio in one of my squadron's aircraft....
