RE: Help please: driveshaft lube question

Can you show up close pictures of your drive set-up and drive shaft? Usually the grease flows down the tube towards the prop due to the "screw" action of the wound drive cable. If the driveshaft is...

RE: Bad day

My plane is my plane. If I hand the controls over to someone, its still my plane. If he crashes it, then its my loss.

RE: Ringed or ABC

I have heard that the Tower .75 has a little more power than the GMS .76. I really don't know about that, but I will say that my GMS .76 is such a sweetheart of an engine that I would never even...

RE: Seagull Decathlon

I've never seen the RC Guys SD, but a 1/4 scale Decathalon could certainly be on my list of must have's! Do you have a link for it? This plane is my first scale (well, semi-scale) plane and I really...

RE: Seagull Decathlon

I maidened mine yesterday evening- what a joy! I had a little bounce on the landing, but I will start playing with the balance a little as I get used to the plane. I have an ASP .80 4 stroke in it,...

RE: Hangar 9 Tango rudder

NorfolkSouthern is right. Exponetial on the rudder helps a great deal- however, my radio does not have ex. on the rudder so I had to get used to it the old school way. I did dial down the EPA on it...

RE: Servos for RDS8000

The RDS8000 is compatible with Futaba connectors, however there is a tab on the connector that needs to be removed- not a big deal at all, just a pair of side cutters or razor knife or even a finger...

RE: What do you do with your brand new 2 stroke engines?

All of my engines go on a test stand- especially if I have plans to put it in a cowled plane. It makes life a whole lot easier especially if it turns out to be a finicky engine until broken in. (I...

RE: OS 120 replacement

A Super Tigre 2300 would do exactly what your asking for, and it's easy on fuel and your wallet.

RE: what easy tame plane for fun?

I'll throw in my vote for the Super Sportster as well. Forget about the landing gear that comes with it and install a set on the fuse just forward of the wing saddle.

RE: Planes No One Should Have !!!

The CMP Yak 54 50. The yellow fiberglass one. It is a pretty plane to look at, but its a snap happy monster in the air. I don't think the engineers who designed this model did any testing at all.

RE: receiver choices

RE: Goldberg Tiger 120 Landing Gear

What happened to the Modeltech line of ARF's? Tower doesn't show any listings for them any more and Hobbypeople shows only a handful.

RE: Super Stick .60 advice please

I really think you should consider using a bigger engine on this plane. It will fly with the .60, but you can enjoy a little more power if you use the .75 size engine. Tower, OS, GMS .76- all great...
