It is not very cool to spam a vendor thread with your company promotional video/advertisement.

i think they are referring to the fact that you posted a video about your website on another vendors website. kinda like posted a hobbyking video on hobby-lobbies website. everyone knows you can buy a plane from multiple vendors. not attacking you, just clarifying what they are upset about

You can reduce trailing edge drag but then gain profile drag from the modified airfoil section if the sanding is too abrupt. Thin airfoils have less drag, smooth surfaces have less drag. The ducting, control rods in the airstream, it all adds up. The Alfa F86 I had would go much faster on the same watts as the EPO F86 they now sell same as the Mig 15. On 4S the they go about 100 mph @ 600 watts the alfa kits were over 115 mph on the same watts. If you were to put them next to each other you would see the differences in how they are built.
Joining this thread very late, but just received my Stinger 64 and waiting for Don's RC to send appropriate motor package. Just read this bit about trailing edges. Should anyone wish to thin the trailing edges (particularly for foam) they might consider the following technique. Cut a thin slot in the trailing edge, insert a thin piece of carbon fiber using appropriate glue, sand the trailing edge down to the carbon fiber. Purpose of carbon fiber is to significantly strengthen the material.

Thrust tube install


I tried installing the tube but could not get it in without damage to the plane or tube. How did you guys install it?

You have to push the side of the tube inwards to make the tube into a "U"shape. So instead of looking like a circle it will look like a "U". Then slide it in then the "U" will pop back to round shape.
