    DW Foamies 48" Yak 55

    Sorry, not sure where this should go... I failed to do a build thread, we were too excited to get the planes together to stop and take pics :-) Anyway, I have read a lot of reviews, and rarely do I see a negative one. After awhile, I start to question all the good reviews.. I started...

    Spektrum AR6250 Recall

    Ok, hope this doesn't get the Ford vs Chevy arguments going.. Just saw something about JR/Spektrum recalling the AR6250 receivers as they may loose signal when used in close proximity to carbon fiber or other reflective materials... So, first off, congrats to HH, JR and Spektrum for...

    Secraft Side Servo Mount - Where to get'em?

    Anyone have an extra Side Servo mount they could sell me? Or are there any shops in So Cal that carry these? Open to alternatives as well, I just don't feel like whittling on balsa to make a mount right now.. Thanks! --Dave--

    How To Covering Question

    Any suggestions on the best way to add some contrast to my wing? I am thinking I need to lay the bottom stripes first, and then the bottom side leading edge. I will wrap the lower material up over the center of the LE bevel, and then trim by running some scissors down it. Next step is to lay...

    What is up with UAVs?

    'K, seems like a whole bunch of you guys are in the UAV business in one aspect or another.. So, what's the deal? I am asking because my industry (semiconductors) is down right now, and with the shift to Asia, it might not come back up in the US. It might be a good time for me to...

    50cc redundant A123 questions

    Hey Guys- I wanted to use dual A123 on my next 50cc bird. I had settled on a JR1222 dual battery receiver. The Rx includes a soft switch.. I thought I was all set.. I started thinking about it a little more, and I don't know if the Rx is smart enough to tell me if I had a battery problem on...

    QQ 85" Yak, no longer for sale . . .

    I was a little hesitant to grab a Circus Hat with the "It's just toys" motto, as I am more on the conservative side of flying, and it just seems kinda poser-ish to sport the swag but not fly hard.. I have been trying to step it up, and I guess blew it.. I am very happy to report this...
