I have now learned why it is called that. Do not get into a contest with your friends to do them the lowest or you may win.

But your plane may lose.

he... yesterday started tobuild my edge... all goes together very nice... just.... are tail wheels still included with a kit? tailveel wire i have, but no wheel.. and now just to decide, to make my slick allaround65mg and savox 0257 for edge... orother way around? or like i usually do to save, digis on tail, analogs on wings?...


and khmm... a tip for you guys... if you use epoxy for elevator joiner, do yourself a favour and glue control horn at the same time... or you might have to cut 2 openings on tail...

Yes it is provided. It is not in the hardware bag? I vaguely remember it was a challenge to find mine as well but I don't remember why (which is not very helpful I know)... Maybe it was in fact in a separate bag which took sometime to find. If all else fail the Durbo 3/4" Tailwheel (dub-75TW) worked well for me.

for your 48" to 51" size electric planes what size servo extensions you like to use (light, med, or heavy duty)? I have been buying/using heavy duty or med ones thinking the weight is negligible and that I rather the extension be more robust, but is that an overkill? I am curious what you have been using.... Thanks!

Like you I always get thet medium or heavy duty just to be safe. And I completely agree that the extra weight is immaterial.

I use medium weight ones if for no other reason than I like having stronger wires at the connection points. Equipment on 3d planes get abused so it should be more robust. JMO.

More dependent on the servos being used really. If I am using 65MG's then I'll use lightweight ones (32 AWG), 85MG's then I'll used medium weight ones (26AWG), and for big servos I'll use heavy duty ones (22AWG.) Also something comes into play is the length of the extention, if I need to use an extention of over 12" most of the time I'll step up a size, just for the reduction in the wires resistance.

ok, makes sense. Do you toss them after a bad crash (even assuming they pass all your "tests" )? I don't. Is that stupid for something that would costs less than $10 for a extensions for the whole plane? For a new Plane I always buy new, but after a crash I don't generally replace them. I am curious what is your SOP... Thanks x 2.

I can't see why you would trash extensions unless there is clear stress - servo thrown from plane, bad twists or suspected stress. But just to toss them from a crash, Du know? Do you salvage servos? I'd think same reasoning as above, if it works and didn't get hammered why not use it? Just sayin.

I don't replace stuff unless it is clearly broken.
