I still need a motor for my Osiris, i was thinking of using a motrofly 2820-950 on 4s on either a 12x7 or 11x8. Good choice?

Check out the 87 manual, it's up near the front.

Neat because if you pull up to a field and it's rough grass, 4 screws and 120 seconds and you can save your pants. Don't even have to tip the plane over.

I've been putting my wheel pants on WRONG this whole time! No wonder I'm on my 2nd set after a year flying the 87shp! Right now they are pinching (just like the 51" slick or 70" velox) them by putting the axel and wheel pant on together at the same time. I guess I'll get another new pair and widen the slot so I can quick swap them out with the 4 screws.

I do the "easy to remove" mod simply so I can take them off to put the planes in the car... I usually snag something, and removing them avoids the issue all together.

there's no individual colour favorite... nice colours can be made bad with bad colour combinations and compositions

External combustion....like a steam engine....instead of combustion in the cylinder, (internal combustion), it is external....I.E. in a boiler...

Or were you talking about something else, that I missed (which I probably did)...
