Today I went to an indoor fly in that I always go to on Sundays. A few months back, I was doing 3D with the V2 without problems, tail was holding great. However, recently, the tail wouldn't hold, at all. I mean 720 degree blow outs on pitch pumps. I reduced collective travel but it didn't help.
So, today I wanted to fly it.... it flies great, almost better than the Nano (when it flies right) so I wanted to fly it again. The tail was doing the same thing, so I decided to go all-out redneck on it:
All I had were 2 other burned out mCP X tails, and a brand new Nano CPX tail assembly. So, I cut the mCP X system off the boom, leaving just the carbon tube. I put it into the frame... I then took the Nano CPX tail boom, plugged it in, the proceeded to TAPE it to the one on the frame. Made sure it was solid and square... it works. And voila! A working absolutely ugly tail boom!
The tail held okay (still blew out) so I decided to do something else. A buddy of mine showed me his tail... 4 bladed tail rotor... kind of. Just two stockers next to each other. You have to cut off the back of one of them in order to get both on.
I put the one I cut on the inside, that way the one that had more gripping the motor shaft held it on better. ...Continue Reading

As you know I got a.O.S. .25 Nitro Engine yesterday. I checked the glow plug and it works. I just need fuel tubing for it to work. And fuel of course. It is an older model, not the O.S. .25 LA or AX. I don't know what model it is. I want to it throw onto a Mojo .25 or Primo .15 kit. On the .25 I have a feeling It may not have the power that it should because this is an old version of the O.S. .25 which may not be as powerful. If I get the Primo .15 it will have power flying spare, not to mention it will be a lot cheaper to build. We'll see.
