RE: Do sizes of gloplugs make any difference?

Excuse me? You're the one who is completely wrong my friend. The A3 is not a long plug. It's the same size as the #8.
According to OS, strait from the link you posted The A3 is "A long-lasting hot...

RE: Is a flight sim really necessary?

I bought the original Real Flight a few years ago, and it sucked bad. Very unrealistic, though it was more primitive than what's out there today. I tried the G3 demo as well, and IMO, it hasn't...

RE: Do sizes of gloplugs make any difference?

Long plugs are really only used for four stroke engines. Maybe some two strokes for giant scale use them, I'm not too sure. For most two strokes, you'll always be using a short plug.

RE: Does CA eat plastic?

CA eats some plastics, but not the stuff used for servo casings. That's just residue from the fumes it produces while curing. They actually use this process in forensics for fingerprinting some...

RE: 4 STROKE VS. 2 STROKE!!

Very true.
After five years of flying with two strokes, I finally bought my first four stroke. They're more expensive but I managed to pick one up for cheap.
So far, I'm liking it.

RE: IS THERE ANY PLANES THAT WILL FLY LONGER THEN 20 MINUTES?

No. Actually, for trainer engines, nitro content makes very little performance difference.

Skilled glider pilots can regularly keep their powered gliders up for over an hour.

RE: HOW LONG WILL A NEXSTAR FLY FOR ON AVERAGE?

The Nexstar will probably fly for 15min on a tank. However, I would not let it get over 10min for safety reasons. A dead stick is not something you want to happen if you can avoid it. Just buy an egg...

RE: 4 STROKE VS. 2 STROKE!!

Depends on what you'll be using the engine for.

Four strokes are more fuel efficient. They have half the horse power of two strokes of the same displacement but have much more torque. Therefore,...

RE: hey, i have one question about trainers.

For beginners, I highly recommend buying a RTF (ready to fly) trainer. It comes with engine and servos already installed as well as a transmitter, charger, prop, and all necessary hardware.

RE: Fueling station

ALWAYS get an instructor to teach you. If not, you might as well put your plane, wallet, and credit cards in a pit and light them on fire.

RE: how offten do you find your fingers in spinning prop?

I did it only once with my GWS Slow Stick. It hurt a lot but it didn't do any damage. Fortunately I had shut off the motor before I did it but the blades were still turning. I've seen it happen with...

RE: WHAT COMPANY MAKE THE BEST AIRCRAFT?

Hagar 9, it greatly depends on the model. The Sopwith Camel had some problems and their E-Flite Ascent flew like a brick. Not all of their stuff is bad though. The PTS series are excellent models for...

RE: fast plane

I second that. Those Q500s are built for speed. Actually, that might be a fun plane for the OS Wankel.
I bought a similar one already built, but it has a bizarre ring style engine mounting system....

RE: What radio to consider getting?

JR makes Spektrum. As proof, the JR 7202 PCM is identical in layout, functionality (less DSM specific features), and appearance to the Spektrum DX7. Both are distributed by Horizon Hobby.

RE: What radio to consider getting?

Radios such as the Hitec Optic 6 (72mhz) and the Spektrum DX7 (2.4ghz) have a heli layout already and are designed to be used with both. From there, all you have to do is remove the ratchet...

RE: What radio to consider getting?

2.4ghz is definitely the way to go if you don't have a lot of planes yet. That's the direction in which the hobby is going. It's far superior to 72mhz IMHO. The receivers is where they get you...

STModelRC LiPos?

I bought a 3s1p lipo pack at on sale at an airshow last year. I don't know much about it other than it's an 11.1v pack rated at 1100mAh, and it's made by a company called STModel. Are these packs any...

This is not really new. Futaba announced that months ago. Hopefully, the increased competition will force prices down. I really don't feel like paying $100 for a new AR7000.
