Thumbs up The VictorValley High Desert Flying Aces

Well its officially unofficial.Or is it unofficially official....

Welcome all to the unclub for the victorvalley area (victorville,applevalley hesperia,lancaster) Im probably missing a few areas so chime in with them

We are a small group who fly electrics'.We are located on the southwest corner of bearvalley & central behind the ultra star theaters (a big red & white building)& just passed apple valley highschool (you will see newton t bass stadium off to the south of bearvalley)

We only have two rules
1-electrics only please
2-have fun (MANDATORY!!)

Of course any & all wattflyers are welcomed to post here & hopefully come out & fly with us!!
I hope to hear from all my fellow wattheads soon

Hi RT you will have to take the bearings out and measure them, the ID is 4mm, you need to measure the OD and width, and call King Bearing, or look up the bearings on line after you get the measurements, hope that helps, Chellie


maybe here, Use a Digital Caliper, I hate trying to read a metric none digital Caliper

Im pretty sure it was bad prep work that did it
This happened over the course of a couple weekends
I use a junior fm radio.My yak on top had a berg micro rx in it.I think the servo wire just came unplugged.at least it was the only one unplugged when I looked at it after the crash.I'll tape it down next time

The aileron trainer plane on bottom had been crashed once before
When I screwed the clevis back to the pushrod it felt pretty loose.I was hotdoggin' it pretty good in flight.I think it just stripped out of the pushrod.I should have ca'd it in place
Live & learn eh

Thats not bad, just get some 3/32 or 1/8" balsa sheet, and make a new Boxed Fuselage, cut off the elevator and rudder and glue them to the new Fuse, should Only take you about 1/2 Hr to Do LOL Take care, Chellie
