***OFFICIAL Question/Answer thread***

Hi everyone,

I am starting this thread for those(myself included) who have questions relating to foamies!

Questions can range from "how do you do a Snake?" too "Which plane should I get, a MX-2 or a Yak-55?"!

My hope for this thread is that we can gather many experienced pilots and builders to help out the less experienced!

I will start with the first question: Are the screw holes on the A10-9L the same distance from the center as on the A20-34S?

Free



ALL QUESTIONS:

Page 1:
a. Are the screw holes on the A10-9L the same distance from the center as on the A20-34S?
b. How do people like the DX7s?
c. Why don't people setup their Mamo VPP foamies as "airplanes" and run the pitch on the flap or AUX 2 channel?
d. Would it hurt my motor/speed control to try it?
e. Is there a good Mamo VPP set-up guide somewhere?

Page 2:
a. Why would you setup a plane as a heli?
b. Does "wing area" include elevator surface area?

Not even close Axi is 31mm hole centres across the two main mounting holes in the 3 mounting lugs the Hacker is only 21mm diameter and has hole centres at 15mm if I remember correctly

That should be interesting

After reading maaaany posts I got to a conclusion that:
If you have one - you love it
If you don't - then you hate it

We want a non linear throttle to pitch mix that on most radios is only offered on Heli modes

Your at risk of over revving the MAMO system with huge vibration issues (enough to tear the nose off the model) or overloading the motor and esc without correct throttle and pitch management

Q: Is there a good Mamo VPP set-up guide somewhere? I think my unit could use a bit of performance tweaking
