the manual says 50 mm but 50 mm from where??? the picture in manual is so confusing



Mike

It's measured from the front of the wing piece, along the bottom of the plane, at the seam formed by the wing piece meeting the fuse. The plane flies great when balanced 50mm back from that seam.

Its the 64mm size from Nitro Planes. Not the new 50mm. Still have yet to see that one.

If anyone has an F-18 that has no plans to use the landing gear, I'm in need of the nose wheel strut. yeah, I could probably make one but I want the same hardness of wire and probably it would be a bit straighter.

Yeah, I have sets of landing gear from both an F-18 and an F-35 laying around.

3S Lipo comparison: GenAce 1000mah 25C vs Rhino 1050mah 30C


I've been reading about the new GenAce lipos. $10 shipped is dirt cheap compared to my normal fav, Rhinos. Attached is an EagleTree plot of both freshly charged and ran for ~10 seconds in my stock motor/fan T-33.

Only unfair comparison is GenAce has 1 cycle while Rhino has 50.

I just wish the main wires coming out of GenAce is along the length as opposed to 90* to it. This makes it tough to fit the lipo in some of the smaller planes.

Going back a bit anyone know from actual flights how noisy the Himax 4S system is compared to Don's 3S set up?

I have the F-86, stock: grey T-33, stock: BA T-33, Don's set up: Mig 15, Don's set up. They all fly very well using 3 x 1300 for the stock and 3 x 1600 for Don's set up. All get up and go from an easy underhand toss, very stable, no tuck or climb with throttle changes on mine. The Don version of T-33 is faster and has better climb but not a quantum leap up -- quality and longevity is of course there. (Yes the T-33 flies very well thankyou with a single tank or a tank at 45 dgrees to line of flight!!)

HOWEVER the noise of the Don set-up is just too much and so I cannot fly them at our field. I fly 70 and 90 size fans with no comments from locals but launch one of these 50 size Don jobbies and all hell breaks loose! Will have to convert back to stock I guess.

Get the Himax and have no issues anymore! It screams on 4s but not really loud.
