Just got home from a trip to the local mart. Bought a roll of Gorilla Crystal Clear tape. Looks like it can be used for a lot of other things even if I don't like it for hinge gaps.

I've used packing tape and scotch tape when I ran out of Blenderm.
Works fine, does the job, can't see it and costs nothing.... which is great cuz I'm on a serious budget.

Oh... you're retired and on a fixed income also??

But on a good note, my laser cutting service and stand-off business is picking up a bit. Funny thing, not much model airplane stuff for the laser, but am cutting laser cut boat kits and model train cars..

My 1st RC model was a fast electric boat. Was a plans built called a Scamp. And I like model train stuff. So you go Steve.😁

Thanks Chris.. check out this page and this page.

I also like train stuff, and if I had the room, I would build an HOn3 (narrow gauge HO that runs on 'N' gauge track) logging layout..

Best wishes on the assembly/build and flying of your new 69” Turbo Raven EXP!

Did it arrive yet? Will you go 6S or 8S on your new and improved Raven?

Please keep us posted!

Anybody here use Instagram very much with respect to your modeling? I'm new to IG and trying to figure out how to make use of it. Anyway, I'm taking baby steps because I don't want to make mistake. My questions right now center around hashtags and how to use them.

Recently, for example, I learned tagging a photo for truck use is a stupid thing to do when I want model airplane guys to see the content. Lesson learned. Anyway, I believe this photo of our upcoming 85oz-in submicro would be of interest to folks, but as I've shared, I've very little clue regarding tags which I should use. Your thoughts will be very warmly received and welcomed.

How much heavier is this compared to my 60 laser? I might get into this bird this winter if it still flys well in the 60 power package

Something around 1-1.5 pounds heavier.

If you have the components and want to fly the plane, you might as well go ahead give it a shot. If you are building/buying everything new, the extra performance of the Dualsky setup is worth the extra cash.

Spot on regarding the price of the 69" Turbo Raven EXP!


From Post #286 dated December 20, 2018 "Stimulating conversation"

"Well, what do you think fellows? With no new posts in almost two weeks on this thread, here's something to stimulate discussion.

The 74" Slick EXP, the 74" Laser EXP, and the 75" Edge are $459.95, $459.99, and $459.95 respectively for the airframe.

Does $399.95 for the 69" Turbo Raven EXP seem about right?"

MKS and Savox servos are offered at https://extremeflightrc.com/69-Turbo...P-_p_5746.html

Now how about offering ProModeler DS175BLHV servos too?

The Consensus


Fellow demand the best pilots (and you are all demand the best otherwise you would not be flying Extreme Flight planes!),

ProModeler servos are available for 52" and larger wingspan planes.

What's the consensus on Extreme Flight RC offering ProModeler servos to its customers?

Problem is promodeler servos are a 1 man shop with no middle man. If extreme flight wants to carry his servos they will make no money on them or have to raise the price

ProModeler does not advertise or sell through dealers, he is greedy and wants all the money he would lose to them for himself!!! (Just kidding John.. )

But he has told me that he is able to do enough business that he really doesn't need to advertise, and same thing applies that he really doesn't need to sell through dealers for the same reason.
