And if you still can't find it, it might eventually turn up in the shop vac.

I use Dap/Bostik Blu-tak for that. Roll up a li'l booger and stick it to the end of your driver. Great for working on micro-helis and such.

So it's like gum....I don't chew gum....


If you ever sand too much down on any kind of sheeting and get the "starved horse" effect, Don't keep sanding! Just sand the spots over the ribs with a small piece of sand paper or finger sized sanding block.

Another thing. Finger sized sanding blocks are very useful for detail sanding, I'm talking like 1/2"*1/2"*5", and you can build your own detail contour sanders.

Hello everyone,
I am beginner in this field and I would like to start by building from scratch the "Calypso ship" - the Cousteau research boat, but I do not want to buy a kit, because I really want to build it from beginning to end, I wonder if someone can help me getting the blueprintsof it.
Can I count on your help?
Send to: scubapt@gmail.com

A big hug to all,

Speaking of searching, I have a tip.

You can get more results when you need to search with multiple words or a phrase if you open Google and then click Advanced Search. Enter "rcgroups.com" (without the quotes) in the Domain field at the bottom and then enter your search criteria. All of the results will show up in the Google search results, and they will all be from only RCGroups.
It's good for any websites that have a crummy search tool too.

Just in case everybody doesn't already know that.

You inspired me to create an Open Search plugin for rcgroups.
Just go here and click on the phrase "RC Groups" in the search results:
