Sorry Leslie

Hey Sorry Leslie,

For some reason I thought you posted the three steps to get a trick and it was boris, go figure, guess my eye sight is going by building too many planes and up late night....LOL!

The Super Piper is one of my best planes, it's light and very responsive and with the EPS-300C-CS, it's very fast as well. No it doesn't have ailerons but, the thing flys inverted for a few seconds when I kick the rudder and elevator hard after a snap roll. It's a fun plane!

The Beaver comes in second because of it's realistic slow flying characteristics and it's able to do loops but, it's so big and wide FUSE that it's not as fun as the Piper.

The ZERO gets my knees shaking and lots of excitment but, I had lots of bad flying experience with this model which I finally overcame after so many repairs and researching why...

Okay, have a nice evening/moring!

Light systems

Hi Guys,
Sorry to bring up old posts,
I,m new to R/C models and learning something new every time I visit this forum
I am trying to research a supplier of a navigation lighting system for my E-flight DHC-2 Beaver,
I was reading this thread on first few pages and found reference to "Curtek light systems" ,
Unfortunately the link goes to a page that says the company is no longer trading ,
Have any of you guys found another supplier of lighting systems or know of any links I should try,
I just want navigation lights and switchable landing lights like the ones on the beaver in this thread and Curteks web page,
Dont need anything too complex just yet
I,m based in UK but I,m happy to pay postage and wait for overseas parcels if you have a local supplier to you,
regards Noel

Hello Nomad welcome to RC Groups. Ive used these lights from Robotbirds - there based in the UK and i have shopped with them many times, very good service -

They plug into a spare channel on your receiver and can be turned on or off via your transmitter.

Good luck and post some pics of your build, we love pics here

Flying at the High School Band / Flag Practice Surface!


It was just a spectacular morning in Central Florida (Orlando, Florida)!

Took out my GWS Beaver with the Mega 16/15/8-Turn and swinging the APC 10 X 6 Prop Slow Flyer and using both the Admiral (MotionRC) 2-Cell, 800mAH, Lithium Polymer and the Thunder Power 2-Cell, 1320mAH, Lithium Polymer packs.

Fooling around and close to the ground I was able to command the Beaver on a touch & go in a circular pattern and the result a one Wheel Touch & Go!

Thanks to Gerry (simano) for the fantastic capture picture!
