|Thread: The May issue Nijuis free plan teaser|
|can I finnish it in 92 sqdn colours ?|
Back in October 07 I bought 4 off 9g servos from RCMDirect.
I used 1 immediately and put the other 3 in my spares box untill Wed 12/March when I found that one was locked solid.
I rang the dealer and with no quibble they offered a free replacement, this arrived today 15 march and I was not asked to return the defective unit.

Bought a small bluebell motor for a shockie, ran well, flew well.
Unfortunately pilot error caused heavy arrival resulting in shaft snapping at base of threaded portion.
No spares available!!!

|Thread: Whats the best flying wing?|
The Wildwing from BRC as sugested above.
With a speed 400 and 8 cell NMh an American forum refers to this set up as a 'mild wing' but is still great fun especialy at the price.
Needs a good hefty launch, more so in calm conditions. Mine has been modified for bungie launch
|Thread: FOD and the electric motor|
Electric motors, of all types have, as an esential component, very powerfull magnets.
These magnets can easily pick up any stray bits of ferrus metal laying around on your work bench, in your car or at the field. If said bits stay in your motor when you try to start up can result in a burnt out motor or speed controller. Do'nt ask how I know this!!
