Slashdot polls vs Molybdenum


Was surprised to see a slashdot poll showing the IPod generation overwhelmingly favoring computer games and programming over copters.

At that age, I too thought computer games would replace the metal and plastic world of copters. Then in the last few years it appeared newer, cheaper flight technology was getting them back into copters.

One explanation is flying is still too expensive for people to do until their 30's and until then, they're sticking to what's free.

Been flying in the 29min range on the 4000mAh ever since molybdenuming the main spur gear, so decided to molybdenum the forward tail gears. 24 lousy minutes on the 3300mAh.

What seems to be happening is the tail gearbox was stiff after the Nov rebuild and ever since, it's been grinding its way smoother and smoother. You can never align the tail gearbox perfectly in a Corona.
