Where is the thread that started "You might be a RCPowers junkie if you....." how about we add "Read old threads like they are new" I just finnished reading all the comments and I could relate to everyone of your issues. Been there done that! My first scratch build I laid out the Ailerons on the 2 seperate wing pcs. and then cut the ailerons out just like Dave and I thought huh I got it. I am a building genious. I finnished all the cut out, assembly and then installed all the hardware. I set up my tx and tested everything no problem. During the maiden flight I quickly discovered the plane would turn rather quickly, When I put the flaps on everything went bad. I found out after (lets just call it a rapid inverted dessent resulting in a rapid deacelleration) that I had laid out the ailerons like I was using a seeing eye dog. one was way out near the tip and almost 1/2 in larger then the one that was layed out next to the body of the plane. When the flaps went on I had a very unstable airplane.



I started this one a few months back... I think this is what you are looking for:

Well kids all of these tips are great. Just one more though. When retrieving your plane turn off you TX. Just in case you bend over and accidentally hit the throttle and the plane kicks up and splits your baby finger in half. Then you might have to wait say... an hour in EMERG all the while holding your finger together.

Believe me you don't want this to happen to you.


You should not turn off the TX before you unplug the plane. :shortfuse: Even with 2.4. (I have done this on several planes and they sometimes rotate the prop).

The best idea is to get used to holding your thumb over the top of the throttle holding the stick down, that way you know it is in the off position, then asap, unplug the plane.

or lay the Tx down and away from you when you go to get the plane...

If you have 72mhz and you have to run after your plane DO NOT close your antenna and set your Tx down.

Ask me how I know this

Thumb on the throttle is the only way you can be sure to go home with all ya fingers still stuck to your hand.

When you get to your plane then "lay the Tx down and away from you when you go to get the plane"

Ya I went through a lot of studying before I got into the air and a lot of time on the simulator. Wish I had this info before last sunday. I know it's sort of a common sense thing but... accidents happen kids.

My baby finger cut in half length wise right through the nail.

But it's healing fine.

Honestly I re read this every other day. All good info for the feild.

Cheers guys
