So with winter closing in I am putting my motors into storage. I have always flown 2 strokes and take good care of them and gotten to the point that I could take one apart clean, oil and put one back together blindfolded. Though when it come to 4 strokes I don't know much at all. I got a few this year and used them frequently enough that I never had to "store" them per se. When I have them in planes I don't really want to take them out and pull them apart. Whats the best way to store and care for these 4 stroke nitro motors?

I got this transmitter from a friend as part of payment for organizing a huge estate sale for him and I don't know much about it. So far I have the 2.4ghz receivers binding and working fine but I don't know how to use the 72mhz option or if I can fly heli's with this transmitter. If anyone out there is familiar with this transmitter I could use any of the info I can get

I just finished building a new plane and think it may be too heavy . its 3.5 Lb.. I'm using an O.S .25 nitro motor (my favorite motor. I have 2) and not sure if there will be enough power to take off. it's a coroplast build for spad fights with the club and as such for the traditional spad fighter it has NO landing gear which makes it a hand launch plane. I don't want to throw it and watch months of work crumble into a pile.
Anyone have an idea how much weight is too much weight for a .25 motor?

New update is that it is flying and quite acrobatic! thnx for looking
