    Big rigger

    Motors like engines can be pushed very hard for short bursts, but the longevity is not going to be there. I guess ProMod engines are much more durable than Topfuel engines making double the power, but looking at the size of this motor if you over prop or run it just a fraction too long the...

    Big rigger

    I am skeptical, but always love a "hold my beer" guy who is willing to strap a 800V battery into a boat and go for it. Found the specs on the system here. LoneStar Performance As Mark Bullard says when he sees me bring out an FE rigger: "Smells like money!"

    Eagle SG Restoration project

    David, it's a 67SG. Attached pick shows the prior break which occurred at a SAW event a decade ago. Andy was able to repair it and the new paint covered the repair. The new break occurred right at the bulkhead so the prior repair held strong, just found the next weak area. -Tyler

    Eagle SG Restoration project

    This Eagle SG ran valiantly at the Cincinnati TT event this past weekend and for a brief moment we held the 1/4 mile F-Hydro record at 16.0 before Bradley lowered it to 15.6s with his 80 Crapshooter. In an effort to improve the cornering we switched to a larger SGX turnfin and that was the one...

    Cincinnati Model Boat Club 2021 IMPBA Time Trials

    CMB 28.5 Evo Help

    Steven, Hopefully you are aware of this piece of information: The large CMB gas motors are quite sensitive to thrust on the crank. Not sure if all the CMB gas motors are small end guided, but the 35Rs was and I destroyed a number of cranks and P&S's using a collet. When I switched to a square...

    I hate radios! Neutral shift?

    On the 4PK and 4PX I use one of the dials near the steering for mixture. It has the tactical feedback of clicks, but I don't look down to see a marker to know where it's at. I use one of the buttons as an "idle-up" for starting. It could also be used for a kill to reduce the min throttle opening.

    I hate radios! Neutral shift?

    Wonder if the T7XC stick radio can have its gimbals rotated to switch from Mode 2 to Mode 1. Futaba T7XC Looking through the manual it does not look like you can switch: Futaba T7XC manual Why not just go with an aircraft radio? Looks like the 16IZ is the lowest spec radio still with...

    I hate radios! Neutral shift?

    Are we talking about your gold case Futaba's? Could it be the steering pot shifted inside the radio? On newer Futaba's there is a "servo view" where you can see if the steering/throttle/mixture/other channel is centered.
