Yeah Kerwin.... I am afraid Park Flyers were some of the original Out Runner Leccys.



We like Gino... If you talk to him, ask him if he can send over a few flyers, maybe a door prize bag and we can amp up some advertising for him at the FLI event.
I have a para board but I won't use it. I am concerned about plugging batteries with different voltages in parallel to each other. The equalizing currents can be a problem. I prefer to use individual chargers.

Yes, I could probably put a couple of pounds of batteries in a Kadet or Telemaster and get a longer flight. I think two pounds of gasoline would get me a lot farther.

Yes... Different Voltage would be very bad.... Different Mah with in reason is no problem. You really dont need to pack it full of bats, normal correct set ups are very efficent. PSU is using a leccy Senior Kadet for the Radio repeated project and it has some heavy gear and they are getting very good flight times on normal lipo applications.

Now mind you they are not using the HK grade leccy equipment, Thunder power, Axi, Jetti, very good and efficent parts.

Dont take me wrong wayne, I am burning nitro and gas and it is quick and easy, but a proper set up leccy, no matter what it is, can be fair.... Besides that, give the government a few more years, they will EPA us right out of Gas and Glow and we wont have a choice but to get good at Leccy.

now guys I'll say this again parkflyers are not leccys. Just like Bill Clinton says I did not have sex with that woman.

Snowdog Why the mintor 33 ? it's not the horse of the DLE 30. The new horse is the DLE 35 and there's always the PTE.

I have a Leccy 70 Slick in the line up for the Motor Box, the only thing I need for it is EVERYTHING. Well... Hardware wise, I got the 71 motor box for it.

What did Bill know, you know he called it "Doin the Laundry" or something else. I thought the Mentors were getting good ratings? I am going to start the RCGF 55 tomorrow and see what the buyer regrets look like. I have heard people like them ok.... We will see.

You all ever hear of SUGRU? This stuff is fun.

Wayne, I am just trying to clean up the slop in my elevators. I have replacement servos if the new gears don't do the trick. I'm running the EQ 10 and it's pretty simple as I recall, thanks for the input.
