I guess I didnt think about it but I never print them. I am not a tree hugger but waste should always be a concern. The issue I have with printer manuals..... NO Search Feature other then my old tired eyes.

Their manuals are long and have a lot of pictures so printing them would add to the cost.

If any ones has an interest <posting info here first> a club member is selling a plane. His attached pictures.... Weren't attached to the email, I will work on that. 8)

This plane is a 15 year old Carl Goldberg models Staudacher 300 with a good running Saito 91s, Vortex spinner, one new servo and the rest of the servos in working order. This plane is receiver ready and flys really well. I got a second place in sportsmen at an AMA precision aerobatic contest two years ago flying this plane. I am selling to make room for new projects. Send an email with questions and to set up a time to see the plane if you are interested.
$150

I just replaced the rudder servo in my new slick because it was dancing around like crazy. Well, I put the new servo in and I'll be dammed if it didn't do the exact same thing. Wondering what the deal is. It is a digital HV servo and all the other servos seem totally solid. Pretty weird. I do have some sub-trim so I'm wondering if I was letting it mechanically go to it's true center if the jitter might up and leave...

That's it Nate, there is no resistance on the rudder like on other surfaces. They will usually settle down hen the battery levels off a bit from peak.

Is that good or bad lol ^^^

DOG I seldom print any of them seeing they're on line its nice to go to them for a quick reference about something

Brathanke sometimes the jitter is caused by too much throw like hooking to the last hole on a long arm on the servo going to the closest hole on the surface I had this prob on my T40 just backing off on the hole on the surface arm and then adding more throw on the box gave me the same deflection but took care of the jitter. It was very weird I relplaced 3 servos before I figured it out lol

Having fun at the FLI...Kerwin fired up his green machine and took it for a spin...I couldn't get a video because I was his spotter...that machine is a *mean* green machine...his DLE-30 is a monster! He made my fly a few minutes while he rested his thumbs...FUN plane! His re-maiden was a bug success!

Tonight he's gonna help me with my Su-26 so I can hopefully fly it tonight or tomorrow.

Here's a before maiden and after maiden photo of K50:

SnowDog........you're holding out on us......where are the action videos? No acts of sabotage and resultant walk of shame? No mention of barely plugged in servo plugs? I noticed a jug of something next to Kerwin, but it's too dark to be shine! This isn't a geriatrics convention is it?

I hate them jittery servos......they're like a crack head.......ya always gots to keep an eye on 'em! (If not your sights.)

Plow......sounds like Xmas over at your place too!

My wife sat in the car this evening and watched me fly 5 batteries through that Aeroworks 260... and only a few mosquitoes dared brave the cold. She said a sheriffs car slowed on the highway and she thought we were going to get a ticket cause I just drove the Town Car onto the soccer field, but apparently they were just watching.... This town doesn't even have a soccer team anyway......it's just for show! They just mowed the lawn today.......I was parked on the side lines...and even though the Lincoln isn't in its prime........from a distance it looked like it belonged on that mowed green.

K50's Mean Green looks better then ever! I am kicking myself for not going. The replacement Nurse bailed after they were already at the Camp and the PTO had to hire a nurse to come out. The trip was sucess full and my youngest daughter <11> did the Flying Squirl and her first Kayak. While those dont seem big, my girls are very timid of things, so this.... IT BIG.


If I win the bid on the poster and I am not there, I dont get the frame with it <pout>.
