This is my custom carbon Renegade #7 I bagged with 3/16 tip dihedral and tubed ailerons making this the only Renegade I've seen with actual poly dihedral (very mild) but poly just the same. It also used to be V-tail, but I converted it back feeling it looked and flew best with the stock tails, but it was part of a test bed of experiments when I was 2nd. Owner of CR. Just had to check !

My 1st carbon Renegade,2nd race at Davenport ISR .After someone stepped on my Raider...I had to race this as my backup.hahaha finished 8th. Ok for 60" in open class! Notice the lead taped on top of the wing to get to max allowable ballast. Not exactly legal but they were flexible on the rules so I didn't cry on the 7 hour drive home.

Hi folks, I am new to the RC world and I don't know anything about controlling aircraft, cars, or boats. I'm interested because I belong to a group of railroad modelers, but not the usual kind that you can pick up in your hands. We build and operate 1:8 trains. That is they are about 1/8th the size of prototype equipment. Ours are big enough to actually ride on, but slightly smaller than the park railroad size. The distance between our rails is 7.5". Standard gauge in the US is 4 feet, 8.5 inches.

To give you a better idea of our engines, I operate a relatively small engine that weighs about 200 pounds with batteries installed. It is about 2 feet long and about 15 inches wide. I don't actually sit atop my engine, but ride in a chair on a flat car pulled behind the engine. Our trains can be as few as 2-3 cars and I've seen some trains that contain 15 or more passenger cars that can each carry several passengers. These guys have very large (compared to my little switcher) gasoline or steam engines.

My interest in the RC Group is to learn more about hand held controllers. Many of us control our engines (speed, direction, sounds, lights, &tc.) with hand helds. Some of us are looking at the Dumbo x6 transmit and receiver. So, I'm looking for some help just past the part where I've figured out how to install the receiver on my engine and have basically set up the transmitter.

Do you think I'm in the right place?

Lesson learned!

Trying to get the fuel line on the carb's barbed fitting is not something to try to do after it is installed into the boat.
Not enough room and it takes a lot of effort to slide it on. See orange fuel line in pic.

So had to pull the carb, brace the little fitting on the work bench, put some 2stoke oil on, and push hard.
Reinstall the carb and torque it down.
Ugg.

Anyway, lines all routed and clamped in place. Nice and tidy.

Figured out the throttle issue.
Had to move the servo end out one hole on the arm, and the throttle end in one hole.
Throws from fully closed (idle) to WFO!

Weather is supposed to be nice this week 70*, I can finally wet sand and clear coat!

Hope to get her wet by next month!

After the 13 mile fiasco, some documentation of tire compression with a typical payload. It clearly is a matter of traction vs stiffness. The flat treads need a lot more material to be as hard as the curved treads, but are necessary for any traction.

A tire with a slightly curved tread didn't get any stiffer. Changing the number & straightness of the spokes didn't make a significant difference. Putting the extra spoke material into more tread thickness might make it stiffer. Printing spoked tires with .4mm layers takes only 2.5 hours.

There is a new honeycomb design with a flat tread & integrated motor mount, but it takes 10 hours & the lion kingdom is low on filament again.
