Hobbico Twinstar:
I bought this off the club president for 300.00 back in 2015. He had only flown it twice, back then it had 2 blade 8 x 6 props and stock spinners. I found it really squirrely in the air. Knowing enough about propulsion, I changed out the props for 3 blades 9 x 5. this did two things for me. It smoothed out the flight characteristics a bunch. the props were larger so the motor acceleration curve smoothed out and produced less torque roll. the only real change in overall characteristic was I had to let the plane gather another 20 feet in ground speed to accomodate the thrust difference. Here is a list of all that is in the plane.
ENGINE_______________________
OS .25 nitro engines (x2)
OS no.7 glow plugs (x2)-medium range heat
Master Airscrew 9 X 5 3 blade (x2)
Dubro 3 blade no marks spinner (x2)

SERVOS______________________
*more to come

MODIFICATIONS______________
*more to come
- ignition glow driver module (possibly)
