"Some of us may have run across a brushless motor that has questionable operation, perhaps after overheating it, or after crash damage. It may even have come from a swap shop. The question is "Do you want to connect it to an ESC" and risk possible damage to the ESC? ..."

Several simple test methods:

Connector test and numbers, in German techno-geek-speak, which is pretty much the same as English techno-geek-speak We all can read numbers, can't we?
http://www.elektromodellflug.de/
-> datenbank ( = database)
-> hochstromsteckersysteme ( = high current connector systems)

(use http://babelfish.altavista.com for automatic translation)

Default They're On The List!

Hello Guy,
Thanks for the kind words, I've added the link to the "Plans" list. I also added a note, since W/F does not allow links to site that require registration to view the content, I explained that the downloads are free but registration is required to do so. Since the SITE may be viewed without registration, it doesn't break any rules, but my clarification is necessary.

Default Clean Up

After finding a couple non-working links, I went through the entire "A to L" page and found 29 bad links. Things change quickly on the web! I deleted the non-working links and combined a couple others.
Next, the "M to Z" page.

Here are a couple of links to consider adding:

Building tips by Pat Tritle: http://www.rcscalebuilder.com/Default.asp

Reasonably priced plans printing service:[email protected] He charges only $10 for a 30 sq foot plan on 36" wide paper. Smaller plans, for example he quoted me $4.99 for a 36 x 48 plan print.

I don't think the guy has a web site.

Thanks, Mike,
I've added Pat Tritles' site. I don't know how to make a link to the plans site, but would like to add it to "Kits + Plans".

Default Welcome Aboard!

Hello FoamHeadMike, Welcome to Wattflyer!
I'm glad you found the links helpful. I've been working on this a long time and try to keep it upgraded. Sometimes links close and I don't find out about it right away.
Hope you enjoy your time here,
Ron

Heres a source for everything you need to build a full size air plane. They have aircraft grade plywood, will saw out spruce per your specs, have fiberglass at good prices, and West Systems Epoxy at very good prices. They even have balsa 2x4's Dont know why, but I want one.

And BEST OF ALL they will ship you a FREE PAPER CATALOG. Ive seen them, and they are 2" thick. Do you best Homer Simpson "MMMMMMM Caaataloooog"

I don't know if this is any use. I've just start airbrushing using Auto air paint's (www.autoaircolors.com) There water based paints and can be used on just about everything but need a clear urethane paint to seal them.
The great thing about the paint is you can use a heat gun, etc to dry them so you can do several passes quickly.
I bought them from www.airbrushmegastore.com thats an Australian company.
