Yep definitely I've had the same happen to me both my bolts worked there way out, was a pain to land I had to make sure I was on a perfect approach then hit the kill switch and dead stick it in. I've struggled with keeping the bolts tight so far the best is nord washers and high temp red loctite.

The other day while flying a muffler bolt worked itself free and a portion of the exhaust port was not covered by the muffler. During that flight the idle engine speed increased dramaticly making it difficult to land. Do you think the muffler had anything to do with that or might I have another problem?


Yes, that could be the reason. I would just try to run it again with the muffler and see how it goes. We’ve had very good luck with all of the DLE engines so I doubt there is a problem. Hope this helps[/I]

Seriously doubt it as Red Bull made it plain that they didn't want any Red Bull vinyl made, and that was the reason for the Fantasy Blue scheme...

Red Bull can stop companies from selling the Red Bull scheme, and even Ben said the Fantasy Blue scheme was made just for the Red Bull scheme....

Man I'd be happy if a King 50 ended with the plane in one piece!

if either of my 30cc ships bit the dust any time soon it would be an epic battle between a 74 edge and 70 velox. e pic battle.

meanwhile, the malamute has secured her own spot.
