Old USA trucks are far better and cheaper repairs

I swear older is better

I bet even glue joints and production quality is far greater 5 years ago or so with twist 40

Manufacturers design and make stuff to last way longer

Sell rc planes cheap but make money on parts

You can buy new f150 for 1
$16000 but repairs are 1000$
Each time

Horizon hobby at least has great customer relations
Ford are
With really poor engineering for the future and its customers
Is it time for the car thing again??

110,000 on my F150. Only repair has been the fuel pump. The fuel pump replacement was expensive but half the cost was LABOR!

I should have been a mechanic.

Do I remove the JST connector and replace with JR/Futaba servo connector? If I want to charge in the plane is there a charge switch available that does JST to battery and extends also the balance plug to outside the airframe? Any help is appreciated!

Also, I have been throwing together a new charging station with 3 x Turnigy Accucel 6 and 1 x Powerlab 8 running 24volts on 2 x Dell Server Power Supplies. If anyone is interested I can share the details on it and some picks. Would also be interested in your experiences with field charging since we don't have AC at the field, I have been powering the PS off my running truck through an inverter. Won't be enough to run the PL8 but all of the AC6's should be able to run. Are you guys using Deep Cycle, Inverter generator?
Sorry Josh I'm no help here 申し訳ありませんがそれ日本語は私にです。

Nice Video lesson I have to aks though in the hover part in the very begining are the Ailerons purposely set to have that much right on them to hold a hover so when torque rolling it can almost be neutral, the sound wasn't working so maybe it was mentioned I'll be checking it out again so I can hear it also.

On the wing from the center of the bolt hole back was all broken off.
I took a 4" 3/32 balsa and ca's it on the bottom side of the wing, leaving about a inch and a 1/2 or so. I glued the grains 90 degrees to each other.
I then glued a 1/2 by 1/4 balsa stick the the sheeting and back side of the wing.shaping the block to fit 1st. After glueing I finished up with a wood rasp. I then wrapped the whole thing with fiberglass cloth.
The landing gear is on but it a bit bent up and beat up.
The work continues.
I miss your camera too Kerwin I'd love to see the progress.

Well cold and snowy here also but we have it just fine compared to some of us around us. Hooked up some nice recessed lighting last night for my Mom she had a house fire in 96 and when they remodled the house the guy never put in the recess lighting she wanted, so 16 years later I finally got it done for her.... thats just so wrong,,, but she is very happy now and it came out great. so all is well, back to the rebuild tonight.

Ya definitely check it out with sound. Also watch the tx sticks to see what is happening. The right aileron in a hover is always needed to counteract the torque generated by the engine and prop. It is just a transmitter input though... no "setting"

I saw my neighbor outside and I rushed to the door to thank him for helping out my wife this morning, but as I was about to holler to him I stopped turned around and went back inside........not because it was super cold out, but because I thought anyone overhearing my comment might not understand. The comment being: "Hey John, thanks for jumping my wife this morning!" I could have rephrased the comment to: "Hey John, thanks for jump-starting my wife's car this morning!", but I doubt I could have said it without cracking a smile....and being how cold it is outside.......I would literally be "cracking" a smile!

Thanks again fellas for your thoughts and prayers......they were heard and that's why I'm still giddy yet today.........breathing easy!

Well the twist is mostly complete. I've need to put a servo lead clip,re thread the aileron servo lead wire, do a bit of covering, adjust the ailerons and install the canopy, and seal the elev.
Yes they are a few things left to do and it's taken me awhile to get her together, but I havn't been gonna at it like I'm killin snakes
