Now with Battery Hatch

Living with no battery hatch and having to unbolt the wing to get at the batteries turned into a real pain. So much so that I would leave this plane at home. Yet the plane flew so well and fast that...

The hardest thing to learn on a heli is to do two things at the same time. Such as correcting the cyclic and correcting the tail at the same time. Eliminating one of these controls will speed up your...

I'm hearing on other boards that the stock servo's on this ship are prone to striping. That loss of power and the bump might have been all it took to strip a gear.

Fragile stock wheels replacement

Make sure ACT isn't on

The fastest retirement ever

I just took all the electrics out of my DVII. A marginal day for flying it moved it from the flight line to the ceiling of my uncle’s garage. A slight gust had a lower wing tip catch the ground and...

Winter Update

Flying off a frozen pond with the HZ SC and floats was a success. Matter of fact it flew easier off the snow on the pond than it does off the water. The floats did a great job of acting like skis. I...

Batt size

I put a 2100 in the bay and it balances but the 2100 is a bit too big. Maybe the 1500/2000 has a bit more weight than my 1320. It figures that for the next week there are fronts coming through every...
