Mine are flapping in the breeze in the fuse. I pay no heed to the 90 degree rule.

Yes or no?

Actually more memory = No. More hard drive space = yes. But most pc's these days have gigantic hard drives, and a few hundred megabytes extra is nothing. Memory is what the computer will use when the program is actually running, when you are actually playing the simulator it might use a bit more memory than the older version did, but when you close the simulator down and turn it off the memory it was using is released. So I wouldn't worry even a little bit about more memory being used. More hard drive yes - double click on "my computer" and then right click on your C drive and hit properties. See how much free space you have left. If you have at least 10 gigabytes free you have more than enough space.

Using more hard drive space will have zero bearing on internet surfing speed by the way. You might have ever so slightly slower internet for other things in your house if you are using the simulator and flying online with others, but it's pretty minimal.

Upgrade and quit worrying about it.

I use clear tape or a Rc car antenna sheath. Dab of hot glue will do it also. Don't glue or tape the exposed ends of the antenna

No secret. Use Manual Focus. And a camera with a good OIS.

I clocked my 47" Osiris at 103mph on the stock setup + 10x10 prop and 4s 2500 30C packs. Prop change and bigger heavier stronger packs and it will boggie.

I clocked my 62" Osiris on my stock setup without a prop change and normal packs at 103mph as well. That thing would be scary to see how it does with a speed setup. I heard a few guys running a neu on it.

Just ordered a balancer adapter (good god, there's about 80 million configurations for those) from RCDude for my Extra batteries, also ordered a couple props, a Xoar 14 x 7 (for the Edge) and a 17 x 8 (for the Extra), and a couple APCs in the same sizes. Finally I'll get some stick time on the Extra!!
