You guys change them to steel ones
I keep the nylon wing bolts. My twists had steel landing gear bolts.

Yea Ron, I think that is the issue. I plan to talk to Coby about a different airfoil for the EP Mother ship.

That said, it flies very well and stable as long as you don't try to go to warp speed. The extra speed allows me to to have a very good climb rate. It also needs help to hit that speed. If you pull back on throttle, even in a dive, you regain control pretty quickly. On mine, I know when I hit the point by the dive that starts.

This has got to be the longest I've waited for a HK order to get here. Ordered around the 23rd of Oct and it still has not got here.

David you can also reduce blowback by making sure your servos have as much leverage as possible. To do this you need to maximize the end points in your tx so the servos are moving as far as the tx will push them. Then move the pus rod into the closest hole to the center that gives you the desired throw. You should try this before getting stronger servos.
This was set up first before all tests were done
Only exception was servo hole was not first but second hole
For eleven it is like number five hole out on arm
So leverage is max more or less

This os electric motor on Wayne's video what is story with that motor
I hear it is good one but heavy on watts

Does os now make electric motors as well as fuel engines

Are os 30 motors same manufacturer as os engines

Are both made in Japan

Blowback is what you get when you pee into the wind.

Blowback is when you sneeze halfway through snorting a line. (So I've been told.)
Lol

Blowback is when you lift bed covers before you fart and then drop covers to smell fart

Lol

OS - same as the IC engines - is selling electric motors now. Mine is NOT an OS. The OS motors have Harley Davidson prices on them.

My motor is a Turnigy G46, 670Kv. I measured 850W in flight on a 4S pack. My motor was $52.70. An OS .40 is $112.

I dont have to wait for them any longer.

I ordered the Milled feather Light Osiris, there is over 20 feet of fine carbon in the kit. I didnt know that Fancy foam had the blenderm and other things sooo fair priced. Got a S3114 there also.

I also ordered the Diamond D47 Servos from the MFG, 19.99 for 4.7gram high torque. I have the new Hcker A10-15S already. I am very excited to fly something like this. Like I said, flying Arron's sort of woke me up to why nothing I have flys like the ones used at ETOC. Not that I have those skills, just the slow and float on rail behavior.

I ordered some NGK BRM6A plugs for the US Engine, the bird dog continues.

As I find Japan makes nice stuff

Just finished up the repairs on the 70 slick. She has a bit more epoxy and some fiberglass cloth added in a few places. The rocks reaked havoc on the bottom of the fuse in a few places so some balsa needed patching up. I also took out the smoke pump. I think we are going to end up putting it in my friend Brigg's 50cc plane. We are hoping it will end up working out a lot better there.

I went with steel bolts this time for better or worse. I also went with larger wheels but I hate them fyi. The LHS didn't have any decent ones and these ones feel pretty flimsy and the foam tires squish down way too easy. I went with a 19x8 xoar this time... it was in stock. I'll miss the protek 20x8 that was a match made in heaven but the 19x8 was also pretty nice when I was using it before. Looking for some flights soon... possibly Monday.

The D47 is the Competion Servo that is being used for ETOC by many of the pilots, I am not to worried about those. However, they dont use the bigger dymond for the Aileron and use a Futaba so it sounds like there may be problems with their other servos.

So that 4.7 gram servo blows all the other 5 gram servos away then.
I learn somthing new everyday.
Once again the wind is picking up and after working all last week I never got the twist up an flying.
O well none of my other buddies have planes that can fly in the wind.

Its hard to spend 19 dollars on a 4.7 gram servo... but Arron reminds me that all the top people competing in ETOC and indoor comps are using them. It is difficult to argue with the voices in his head at that point. Having flown the plane it makes sense too.

I doubt I will be competing or even attending one of those ETOC thingys. I guess that is why I keep using those HXT900 and HXT500 servos.

Way to go on the steel bolts Nate.
