Cool as Sh&^& Just downloaded to my iPhone. Saves keeping a paper logbook. I just got a second iPad to use with my Hitec telemetry system when out in the field. This logbook rounds out the toys. Thanks for the info.....

About the same has me. My field is 3 miles from the house and a real paved runway over 4000 ft.

Just tell her it's something that vibrates and she can sit on it anytime she wants.

Elevator sticky

Hey Guys,
Has anybody had problems with the elevator being "sticky?" Mine tends not to center that well. Cut a little foam away, or replace the hinges?
Any ideas.
Kevin

Had a lot of trouble with the Rudder sticking but not the elevator. It worked itself loose after sometime as well, also installed a better servo which seemed to help as well.

What the diameter of the hole shaft on your 2-3/4" DuBro spinner?
.
Please answer.!

And i've an other question about it:

When you fix it, or other same spinner, on your shaft motor, the only thing that is holding it, it's the bolt isn't it? (here in red)
this is not a bit light for the flight?

to see if I understand my English is very bad lol
I received this plane todaymotor base which screws next to the wooden base is not completely straight, this makes the engine is a little to the right
Has anyone had this same design flaw?
I put two washers on both bolts right to the engine is as straight as possible, would be nice?

The last question less important:the pilot no included?

joselu,
the motor pointing to the right is called 'right thrust" & i believe most r/c planes have that built in & also some 'down thrust'.
i didn't get a pilot figure with mine, i just printed out a picture of a pilot, printed out a mirror image of the pilot, glued both to a piece of foam board & trimmed the foam board to fit. and glued that in the cockpit.

I would put the motor back the way it came...otherwise it will be a B_tch to fly. You could glue the firewall on the foam as it will get loose after a few flights while your in there.
