Fliton makes a good arf. I'm sure the Inspire 90 is a joy to fly. I had my Inspire 60 for 3 seasons now. Powered with a Hacker A50 S16 and 6S 4000mah lipo, the plane weighs in at 6.5 lbs. Turning...

Bad Servos?

Last spring I built a 50 size YAK using Hitec HS-225MG servos. The plane flew erratic and had throttle control problems. I replaced the motor (1500W), ESC (80 amp), Bec(7 amp), and reciever...

EPP Pitts

This plane is too heavy for indoor 3D flight. You will have to maintain a higher speed just to keep it flying. You will spend most of your time flying in a pattern.

I would stick with the biplane. It has less wing loading, which will allow you to fly at a much slower rate. This will enable you to practice your 3D maneuvers with less worry about crashing. I've...

I had this same plane. It flew great and the electronics were good, but the depron was very brittle. The plane can not take any abuse. I would recommend buying the plane and making a template so you...

I have used the prop spinner packaging for air scoops. They are light and strong enough for most applications. You can also cut a plastic spinner in half for 2 scoops.

Eratix

I'm glad other pilots appreciate the quality of this plane. The A123 batteries are my first choice, but they are too big and heavy for this plane. While maintaining a flying weight below 4 lbs, you...

Eratix weight

Thanks for the info. I'm going to put a spring loaded latch on the canopy. Does your 4.2 lb. Eratix include the battery weight. I have noticed a wing flutter during a dive, but it stays together. ...

Eratix warning

I purchased an Eratix last month and used a Rimfire (740W 1000KV) motor. With a 4300mah 3S Zippy lipo, the plane weighs 3.9 lbs. The plane has plenty of 3D power when using a 14 X 7 APCE prop. ...

I used a Rimfire 35 series with a 1000 KV brushless motor. This is a 740W motor which can draw 50 amps continuous (69 amps peak). I'm using a 4S Lifo (equal to 3S Lipo) battery pack which weighs 12...

Does the charger blow the fuse when charging all your batteries or just one particular one? Compare the input current rating (listed in the specifications of the charger) to the fuse in your car.

Thanks for the review. I also use the A123 batteries and I believe they should be charged to 3.6V each. This will produce a voltage of 21.6 volts instead of only 18 volts.
