Today I tried the 19gm turnigy motor, and I don't know if I got the specs wrong, or I got a dud, but it overheated mightily on 3s and I doesn't smell very good any more. Still works. Thankfully, was cheap, but I'm sure I read it can handle 3s? Anyway, I've got a crack series coming, but it went good while it lasted :-))

JC you can see how little I use the rudder in this, it must be all the tail touches (or perhaps the crashes).

LOL - looks like you use the rudder plenty.

If you want to see just how much you really use the rudder - simply unplug the rudder servo and then fly it.

And yes, tail touches will take their toll on the rudder servo..

I can't imagine flying one of these without it.

I've got the suppo version of that motor and 3s is fine with a 7x3.5 prop. The crack series is much more better than it though. Did you go with the 24 or 26gm motor?

Knock on wood I've only replaced one rudder servo. That was on my Slick, the two Pitts and Yak are still going strong. I use rudder so much that I get into trouble on my micros trying to turn with it.

I may have to run on 7" then. Yes, I like the crack series. The 26gm is on the way.

These things are awful to fly without a rudder, feels like you've lost a limb.

+1

My thoughts exactly.

I have a hard time flying 3 channel planes until I remember that there is no rudder.

My rudder has very minimal movement in one direction. I've got some binding going on in the rudder hinge due to a bad repair. But this thing has such crazy rudder authority that it almost doesn't matter. If you can only get a little rudder throw you're golden!

That's true, but with full throw it's a beast. Got a few flights on mine before the weather took another crazy turn. The big grin when I fly it last at least a week.

Can anyone tell me what kind and length of screws I should get to mount my Hacker A10-13L. I either misplaced them or they were not in the package. =( I can stop by Lowes on the way home.

I guess I'm confused... These are listed as the mounting screws but no way in heck those are long enough to hold the motor on the motor mount and fit deep enough into the fuse.

So maybe I did get them but they're just not going to work. I need something that will bolt the motor up to and through the motor mount and deep enough into the fuse... But you all know this, you built one too.

If I'm not mistaken those screws are for the x mount to the back of the motor. For the x mount to the motor mount on the plane you could use servo screws. That's what I would use in a pinch. Good luck.

Servo screws are the perfect size.

You can use #2 round or oval head wood screws but they are a smidge too big and require enlarging the motor flange holes.

3/8" in length is good unless you are using fuel tube standoffs for thrust adjustment - then go with 1/2 or preferably 5/8".
