You guessed it, the video was from the 2nd flight. I put the nozzle on on flight 8. It definitely picked up some top speed with the nozzle. I was not having too much trouble fitting into the turbine pattern. I will try to get some radar speed runs next time I make it out to the field.

I powered on the aircraft with the gear switch in the down position. Therefore the lights were on and the gear was retracted. Doh! I checked it on the bench today and it works as it should.

Stinger 90 main gear issue

Pilots,
Is there a drop-in trailing link strut available for the main gear on the stinger 90? I fly on a grass field that isn't the smoothest and I can see it being an issue on less than perfect landings. By the way I just flew recently after getting the flaps programmed and this thing lands unbelievably slooow!!! Lots of complements from other more experienced pilots.😄

Other grass flyers have reported success with the stock gear. The stock wheels are good sized and the oleos have some good suspension travel. I applied some synthetic lube to my oleos and worked them a bit and they really have some smooth action now.

for trailing links, your best bet would be the F-5/Scorpion/Mirage links as they are fairly straight when in the extended position. the T-45 links will require hogging out much foam, and will move the wheels back...making takeoff runs longer.

Thank you Air-Jon!

Do you know what size the pins are on the stock retracts? The part I'm asking about has the flat surface that the grub screw fastens on.

Motion is really good about giving us the details of all the parts. Spend some time looking at the spare parts from the different jets to see what may work for you.

Wow! Silly me. I didn't bother to look cause I didn't think the specs would be listed. Thanks again.

Wellllll.....to be brutally honest, about 90% of the time they aren't. Except for the time you really really REALLY NEED the info -- then it goes up to about 99.9%.

Glacier = BuddRC.com

They sell a 6000 30c and a 5800 45c. I choose the 6000 30c as I am more interested in flight time than Max power. No shortage in power output for our 100A draw setups. That said, the Glacier 30c outperforms many 40-60c packs per the testing MCSGUY did. The 6000s are also 6mm narrower which allows them to fit in some of my smaller jets like the FW F-5 with room to spare.
