I do APC up to about 14x7 and wood above that. The reason is that the plastic (composite) props tend to get a bit too wobbly above that size. I have a 16x8 APC on my 58" Edge and you can clearly hear...

I agree with Mark. The first thing I would check is whether the prop shaft is straight. Does the plane vibrate more than usual when you spin up?

Nevermind that it's 100 bucks too expensive and out of stock, but I think you should look at the 60" Extreme Flight Extra. :) It's pretty sweet, especially if you like to draw crisp lines in the sky....

I used to SUCK at landings, but I had to get better when I started to fly the 30-50cc stuff. What I learned was that my approach was too steep. I would either panic and flare too quickly and pancake...

I know how to do it on a Spektrum DX8, but that's probably not going to help you. Essentially, all you have to do is to take the input from a three position switch and feed it into the ailerons. You...

From what I can see, the Tranchant needs standard size servos, so the HS82s will be too small. In any case, I've found that the 82s are a bit too weak in the design to withstand 3D. I already have...
