Sorry I had one too many digits in my phone number. It is 253-875-6890.
We are out of the 40's, 20's and many DLE engines but any that we are out of give us a call and pre-order and you will still receive our 10% discount Christmas special.
Thank you

Did you unhook the spring on the carb? This is one benefit of leaving it hooked up as will help bring to a consistent idle every time.
I am actually pretty sure the linkage is most of the problem. I am using ball links on both ends with the aluminum servo arm that came with my 7955's. But I will either need a longer arm on the throttle or a shorter arm on the servo. I am only using about 2/3rd of the resolution in the servo. I also think I have some flex in the arm due to the angle coming off the servo. I mounted it under the motor box. If I move the arm into the fuse and drill a hole in the firewall, I should have better leverage on the throttle arm. There is also not a lot of room between the right exhaust and the carb. Basically I need to take things apart and come up with something better.

Took out my BigFoot and 40cc twin today for the first time in about a month, but she started smooth and easy like it was yesterday! Here's a quick snippit of her purring away at about 1450rpm:

Has anyone tried a 3-Blade on the VVRC 40? Are these people flying IMAC or 3D. I have not tried a 3 Blade because I have heard they are not so good for 3D.

I owned a full size Piper Arrow for 12 years. We switched to a 3 Blade after 8-years and I thought it was louder but I have heard for RC it will reduce the noise.

Awesome deal for those that live in California and have to pay sales tax in that state anyway. Not so awesome for out of state mail orders that don't expect to pay the tax.

Look up about 6 posts and find a post by Tom at Valley View. Then give him a call. They are one the way and they usually do not stay in stock long.

The website adds the tax automatically, but when you check out it'll take the tax off before you pay.

You are right, only Washington State residents will pay sales tax. All other states pay no sales tax.

Haven't done it yet, but my plan is the Xoar 19x8x3 for a nice scale look for a 1/4 scale DHC-2 Beaver. Cheers

I'll try a 3 blade on my Ultimate Bipe...any recs for blade size? I'm running a fat Biela 20x10 and it has power to spare. If I could run a 19" 3 blade, that would be great.
