Re: Futaba 14 SG

Futaba 14 SG

I have recently bought a new 14 SG transmitter and while I was able to program most things quite easily and I have flown with it, after programing Ailerons / Rudder mix, and also Engine cut switch, I now seem unable to program in a flap to elevator mix. 1) Has anyone else had this type of problem ? ...

Re: Chrome paint

Not really what it says on the tin, More a sort of metalic gray. Very disappointing, I'll keep looking.

Re: Engine options for PFM Giant Zlin

Back in the old days me and a mate bought one each at Sywell both flew really well on a OS 60 but could never get them to knife edge despite seeing Pat Frenches do all sorts of aerobatics during his slot at the shows. At one of the shows we managed to have a chat with him about this and discovered h...

Re: Wing Washout, any hard fact anywhere??

Hi Alan If I'm cutting a foam wing I always align the tip rib template to give me 2.5 degrees of washout, over the years this has resulted in a very stable flight pattern with little tendency to tip stall, this must mean the whole wing is twisted, So I guess it dosent matter. Regards..........
