RE: "How Fast" Airspeed Instrument

No - not to cut the tubes, but I would guess that as long as you keep them in clean air, the length of the tubes can be adjusted. I would email Winged Shadow Systems on this question.

RE: New moter is bad? HELP!!!

Sounds like something is binding in the motor - possible a mounting screw is impacting the rotor? Does the drum freely rotate by hand?

RE: Show us your scratch built foamys

Here's one I started to build as a small plane, than thought I'd like it bigger so I added another body to it - it's kind of a "work in process". Not quite sure what to call it - biplane? Bibody?...

RE: Official Hobby Zone "Super Cub" Thread

RE: Official Hobby Zone "Super Cub" Thread
