Any polarized sunglasses are good. Use along with a baseball cap to keep the sun out of your eyes.

Also, Skarface, using the water analigy - Voltage is like water pressure, the more the better. Amps (amp/hours) are like the flow - more flows through a givin pipe with more pressure, or more can flow through a larger pipe at the same pressure (Volts). Watts are like capacity - glass full, not much, bucket full - more, pool full - much more. Volts times amps = watts. More amps needs a bigger wire/pipe.

Hope this helps.

A watt meter goes in-line to measure how much current (amps) is flowing.

Hey guys. I'm finally going to get my 72" SC up in the air. I am looking to pick up a good 8S motor and am looking at the Hacker A50-14L. Does anyone have one laying around or a similar motrofly setup to sell? Let me know otherwise I'll cough up the $$$ for a new one.

Thanks,

Steve

So, I gotta brag on this guy Horton a bit. I crashed my 65 vyper a cple of months ago. Totally forgot I broke the wing tube as well. Worked on the battery tray and LG plate for hrs and hrs to fly at seff. Got it ready to put the wings on and the big DUH moment came. No wing tube. So I asked Noll if he had any tubes that they werent using that might fix the vyper, as I knew they been out of stock for a while. This guy pulled a tube out of one of his 71 slicks and told me to cut it to match my plane. You dont get better customer service and I'm gonna just say some good buddies helped me out at the field. Thanks Noll and Ben. Its gooder to have my ole vyper going again

Aron you guys need to get the local Buckeye flyers together and set up a tour of the restoration facility there. I ran a Model Lab for Battelle when I lived there and I think you need 8 people and they will set you up with a private behind the scenes tour, it's awesome. They have a huge warehouse like the end scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark with pieces of planes, every planes waiting to be put back to a complete plane.
