Just add the triangle stock. If you want to dress it up, taper each end to a point, apply some covering or paint and glue to the fin/stabilizer joint as you said at the get-go. Remove the covering...

Pete,

Thanks for the feedback. I dug through my shop and actually found the manual for the Digipace, a bit yellowed around the edges, but in fine shape. It is pretty clear about the use of the 300...

ACE Digipace II, Question

I have had the ACE Digipace II charger forever. As I prepare for the flying season by cycling my batteries, I have been seeing a consistency of 50-70 minutes for every one of my packs, including one...

I've got a bunch of those 6-inch bar clamps from Sears. Had them for years and they'll crush anything you're likely to ever use in modeling. And they are about the most used clamp in my arsenal. Go...

Sounds right. As a glow driver, it's always Xmtr ON, Plane ON, Plane OFF, Xmtr OFF. Since my electric has no ON/OFF switch, I never gave it any thought, but it does make sense. However, as I said, up...

MustangMan,

What size battery will I need for that final flight. After my latest electric procurement, my wife has "hinted" it may be coming sooner than I expected.

40-size warbirds, power options?

My interest is moving toward 40-size warbirds. Will 4S batteries (the capacity of my current charger) and either a Power 46, Rimfire 46 or Hacker A40-10S V12 work? Thanks for your inputs.
