Thread: Servos - need help choosing....

These Hitecs are a lot cheaper. These Supertecs are good if you want smaller servos.

Sounds like you have got a dodgy kit. Try and send it back and get it replaced. Failing that I would elongate the holes where the dowels fit into the fuselage so that the wing sits properly in the fuselage cut out.

Both Key fob and Gum cams are very similar, I would just take what you can get at a good price. I think some offers supply the memory and some do not. Just make sure you look carefully at what you are getting for your money.
 
Good Luck

I have tried water based Ronseal with very poor results. It was on film covering but it went soft and sticky after a few flights.

Just remove/cut the red wire from ESC to RX throttle channel and plug battery into any port on the RX.

I must admit I just chuck mine in the bin. Is that bad
Thread: AA batteries

I have to agree with the two posts above. You can buy good quality 4 cell AA pack in both flat and square arrangements. Making them yourself has no benefits that I can see.

If your prop is coming loose when you are flicking it then it is way too loose. You can apply quite a lot of torque. If your spanner is short say 4-6 inches then you can give it a rally good yank. I find that the prop cuts into my hand to tell me to stop yanking on the spanner.
Thread: Prolapsed disc
16/10/2010 09:43:57
I had that and I feel for you. I had an operation to remove the disk 20 years ago (I was about your age) and its been very good ever since then. I still get some pain now and again but nothing like it used to be. The Doc should have prescribed some STRONG pain killers. I had Dystalgesic which was good but I am not sure if they still use them. I suggest that if you are suffering go back to the Doc and get some more/better drugs

Thread: Electrifying Super 60
14/10/2010 17:41:41
I think you could get away with a lot less than 550W in a Super 60. Its a very floaty model and I 300-350W should do the trick. Having said tghat I have never done it myself. My Super 60 flys on an old 20FS.

Thread: The Big Ship - first build help

The problem with Electric power is that there are so many variables. So the way to simplify is to make some fixed (not really fixed but just a stake in the ground) decisions to start with. As Tim says start with a decision on what sort of prop size you want and work from there. Another option is to start with the battery and work towards the prop.
 
If while you are doing your calculation it is just not working out, say the current is just too high, then try and start from a different fixed point.

Eflite  stuff comes from Horizon Hobbies I think so it would be worth contacting them regarding this problem. Usually the provide outstanding service in such situations.
