Mt Flyer LOL Thats friggon awesome LOLOL

Plow your moving south????

Eric man I just got a chance to go back and watch some vids, While I know every product has its day and some flaw or bad part to just about anything thats a tough one to watch for sure These are the reasons I'll stay with Futaba also and I have heard some of them failing also but I never had a single problem with one in 4 or 5 radios now the horror stories I'm hearing from Hi tech , Jr, Spectrum, is going to keep me far away for quite sometime I'm sure.. But good luck to you

We've done the omaha Steak thing and man they are gooooood But way to pricey for me, we even tried the box of 4 burgers it was DELICIOUS But we'll never pay that $25.00 for it again as it still tasted like a any other burger to me.

Moving to a house here locally for now, but my next home will be in Dixie!!


I can't see paying that much for steaks that aren't KOBE beef filets. Especially if it don't come cooked with all the trimmins'!! Just sayin'.

WTG Plow on selling your house

I have been looking for a house recently and it is not a fun experience, especially when my wife determines it is a good one because it is pretty and has nice paint

I am more or less looking for land close to work

as as you guys know looks are not important to me as you can see in my planes and mods

You are on the right track David. You just need a house with good bones. There is nothing you can't improve on from there. Paint is cheap.

Thanks for getting that link to graphtec up Wayne. I've been away from the computer all day and I can't (or don't know how) do do it from my BlackBerry.

LOL David thanks for the advice. I already sent it off. I have a few photos of the wreckage but chose not to document it too well. I don't want to remember what it looked like. I was sad.

Plowboy, you have to tell an 8FG that you want dual rates. Then you have to tell it what switch, then you have to tell it what position of that switch has the rate on or off. Then, you can set up a triple rate by repeating the selection of switch, then telling it when it's on/off.

Then, you have to set left and right independently. And set the switch condition for each channel independently.

On the plus side, you can change ailerons to channel 4 if you want to. You can make the aileron trim lever operate the rudder trim. You can make the timer come on during certain parts of the throttle range. You can have the timer run while you're inputting rudder if you want. It's literally endless what you can do. I absolutely love it. It just takes a few more minutes to program.

Saito 1.25 will swing an APC 16x4W about 9200 or so.

Hey Way, I am gonna put a Saito 1.25 on a Goldberg Ultimate Bipe 90 sized 8 lbs or so and looking to get the right prop. While this is not a 3D bipe, I'd like to hover it and do what 3D I can, as well as general aerobatic stuff.

I am thinking of a Xoar 17 x4 or 16 x6. Could you (or someone else) offer an opinion? Or another suggestion. Thanks!

I liked the 17 X 6W on my 1.80 so I'd have to say the 16 X 6 would probably offer the best performance of the two on that engine. Post some pics when you get a chance. I love Ultimates!

Recommended 3D prop for the 1.25 is 16x4w.

Does anyone here by chance have a stock DL 50 or DLE 55 muffler laying around? Had a small mishap with a deadstick landing and overshot the runway. Retracted my landing gear and bent the muffler pipe at about 90*.
