hello
In futaba for Mode 2 airplane version defined by a momentary or spring loaded switch the one located on top/left/ back side of the transmitter, as a confirmation you can watch you tube video Futaba 16 sza "timer set up" by Chip from team futaba where he select "SF" naming it as spring loaded switch but in the Manual it is described on page 16 as a momentary switch but is the same.
[Be careful, please do not ignore my advise ]
The one that I get from Tower for christmas have the momentary switch on the right.
I call Futaba services I they give me two choices:
1- Send it to change to left
2- Return it for exchange.
Note:
Please, review the latest software version as my came with version 3.0 and Futaba already release 3.2 in Dic 13

Motor-Box construction:
1. 1st step is to identify all the parts needed and to draw out the lines on the firewall for the down thrust and the right thrust.

I will do 3 degrees of right thrust and one degree of down thrust.

Using the plans, I was able to identify the lines.

For Mustang and Spitfire pilots I make scale resin exhaust stacks. Merlin "Fishtail" are 1/5 and 1/4 scale. Merlin Round stubs are 1/4.6 and 1/5 scale.
The bigger Merlin round sets are available with fibreglass shourds. The shourds work with TF giant Mustangs, Ziroli┤s, Carf and many similar Mustangs.

Hey guys,
Check out this review and flight test I did for Hobbyking's new Bixler 2 Release of 2017!
Overall, this bird flies very scale, is responsive and aerobatics capable. It can be flight ready in about 30 minutes, and is a fantastic daily flyer.

Hi,

I recently got a EF Slick 3DHS 79 inches.

As I would like to install my new DLE 55RA, I noticed that when I was test fitting the engine, there is almost about 0.4 to 0.5 inches gap between the cowl and the spinner backplate. As the engine has a rear mounted muffler I will not be able to cut into the firewall or use a smaller set of standoffs. If anyone has mounted a similar engine on this model, I would really appreciate if they could please share some advice and pictures.

Thanks
Chris

Here's the 2017 edition ... It's been a great year, managed to get my bottom into some truly special aeroplanes and generally had a great time.

Although there's no R/C stuff in the vid I had some great times flying and watching at various events. The highlight had to be Jase "The Ace" Dussia at Weston Park, But our Nationals at Barkston were great, as were evenings at my local club field and more lately indoor F3P flying at Newark

Anyway, here's wishing everyone on here a very Happy Christmas. I do hope you like the 'vid .

HSD 105MM F-16
Now this F-16 I fell in love when it first came out. I bought it the day it came out. I have had it for sometime now but have not flown it yet since the field I fly is not long enough I have discovered. However I am building it up first to my detail expectations. I have a mini F16 i fly in the meantime (UMX). 8)

Dag (Damon Atwood) 3D printed R-2800 Radials

I bought this plane from a friend out in Columbus Ohio in 2016 summertime. I was never sure as to whose plans they were. I wanted to determine that so I could better understand its construction and layout. Meanwhile I bought most everything I needed to restore the plane and improve upon it. This was to be my long term project plane. I spent those two years studying and researching what to do with this plane. I finally had come up with my plan for January 2019. I began work that new years day with orbital sanding the imperfections out of the surfaces. I removed all the attached panels, cowls, firewalls engines, fuel tanks..the works. I could then see what I was working with. Being well built and remarkably intuitive design, I began to look for key markes of the design to determine the plan maker. Noted that the wings disconnected at the posterior flap location. The canopy was set with 4 mini screws. the battery compartment located just behind the cockpit, all key elements to determining the Don Palmer plans!! I began to develop a research packet on the plane, panel lines, fuel tank location, bolt patterns, etc. I have a great love for this plane as it represents all the skills I have developed in this hobby over the last 6 years. I expect at least a year or two before she flies, but it can always be sooner. stay tuned!

FLYZONE CORSAIR 1200MM-MODIFIED
I was at an LHS in the mid summer of 2014 I believe. I saw the Corsair. I didn't have the money for it at the time, but I knew I liked it. so I did research on it through youtube and Tower Hobbies when it came out. I got the money in the summertime and ordered it from Tower Hobbies.When I flew it, I noticed it was a little hard to fly in the wind, but knowing about full scale corsairs, I began to make changes.. It flies to this day as smooth and level like no other plane I have in my collection.
