Kody, Thanks for pointing me toward the Futaba S3114 servo as a much better Crack Yak servo for the totally lame TH CS40D that went bad after only 10 flippin flights. The S3114 is awesome, twice the torque & close to the same weight. I will be carving the TH servos out pronto, crushing them & burning them, oh but I am not bitter.lol

Flop, Thanks for offering up a replacement servo last night & tossing me a GWS prop to try. Had fun flying indoors for the first time eventually with just ailerons & elevator after I lost my rudder servo. Can you say “dead man flyin”…bouncing off the walls, posts, ceiling rafters, basketball hoops, bleachers, ground & almost off you & Steve. Hey but I still brought home a fully intact Crack Yak, though little sob's aren't they!

Thanks Vitter, Supatim, Flop, Kody & Steve for putting up with the indoor rooky last night. Had a complete blast.

Those 3114s are awesome. My dad just replaced the servos in one of his warbirds with those and I found an older one lying around. The centering is spot on now and I didn't realize how crisp they are. I would bypass the TH servos for those. I had one of the TH servos just quit out of nowhere then start working again after I had already cut it out. Another stripped a gear when the motor cogged out and landed on the tail which is another issue I'm not going to bother with.

I love my crackyak but I'm having issues with a bad motor(which killed a servo). I sent the motor back and talked with Brad and he said he coudn't get it to cog, it only happens after about a minute once the ESC and motor both start getting hot. He sent it back and is still having issues. I alleviated the ESC as the issue as the motor overheats any of the 3 12amp ESC I tried it on. Now the last thing to check is the bullet connectors for a bad connection. I'm going to solder them direct tonight and see if that fixes anything. If not it's going back again.

At times it was absolutely crazy out there with Alligator Tim, Crocodile Vitter, Barracuda Kody & Piranha Flop gettin after it with a 3D free for all.
Props were buzzin, Foam was flying, Spectators were running for cover! At one point Vitter even came after me, I just saw a blur of foam & was thinking about diving under a table!

Those new DWS look awesome, I know Mike has been working hard on EPP planes as an answer to the popularity of the Crack planes. More foamies = more fun.
If they fly as well as the Cracks then it's a matter of cost and styling choice. Choice is good
Sounds like I missed a good time of indoor flying

EG Slick 50cc

Anyone interested in a well loved (used) 50cc EG Slick?

I picked this up from Cryhavoc38 earlier this year and flew the bejesus out of it over the summer! I did have a dead stick (in a hover no less) that ended in the landing gear being ripped out. Everything went back together without much trouble and the planes performance didn't suffer. I rebuilt the landing gear mounting plate and patched up the cowling and repainted, although the paint match didn't turn out perfectly.

It has Spot-On RC servo arms and bling washers for all flight surfaces that'll go along with the airframe.

Anyways, cryhavoc38 gave me a really good deal and I'd like to pass the savings on! Considering its Christmas season, I think $100 to a local guy would be fare. You'd have to pick it up though. I've got it shelved in my shop in Ferndale (about an hour north of Seattle).

PM or email (Justin@truemachine)
