I think that most servos that have failed for me have been elevator servos with rudder coming in second. Heavier throws in my case and more stress due the larger surface areas. Striped three on my...

servos

Managed, with a bit of nervous sweat, to pull the first servo out of the fuselage. It was like removing a tooth from a Hippo. I actually think it was stuck to some of the paint that was on before...

$20.00 wasn't the issue; I wanted a lower Kv motor that suited the Spitfire and would "BOLT RIGHT ON". Already had the power 15 motor so it was a no-brainer. Will fly on 3s or 4s. Flew it again...

The e-flite power 15 screwed right on to the existing motor mount, and the stock shaft adapter worked fine except I needed one thick washer so that I could mount a nice large white nose to make it...

I did not have to enlarge the opening for the 4-cell at all. Slips in TIGHT so it is a small chore to slide it back out. Works for me, and if I want, after testing, I can slide my usual 2600 ma 3...

Thanks; I know what you mean as I have been fighting the electronics issue with my "test" Stryker. It is difficult to match up the amps/watts by just changing props. At some point I just lose too...

I uploaded an attachment; we shall see what happens.

Picked one item 10X10 prop to see if it comes close to what I actually read on the test which was 30.46Amps/310 watts. Curiously, an 11X10...

I would be difficult for me to use the 12 inch prop due to clearance when the plane lifts it's tail on take off. Local hobby shop has no 3 bladed props in stock, but there is always "on-line". I...

I was trying the "Motor" drop-down list; now I see what the little 'ICON" does. THAT HELPS.

Thanks. Something for me to work on while the wife is watching X-Factor.
