Generally I try to stay away from technical articles about electric chargers and such because this is not my area of expertise. Mostly I try to keep the blog just fun, but you do have to charge your batteries and...

Jim and/or Joe - just looking for your thoughts on which plane to buy next. I had the unfortunate experience of a complete signal loss with my belove 70" Fantasy Blue Slick. I only had about 15 flights on it and was just starting to fall in love. I could repair it if parts were available but since this is a...

Our first stock order of Leopard motors has been placed, and we expect to have them within the next 3 weeks. Over the past couple months we have been doing extensive testing on these motors and have been very impressed with the results. We feel they will directly compete with the "big name" brands at much lower...

I am wondering about servos for my slick. I have previously been over on RCG's and checked out the pages and pages of build threads, so I know that a person has a few choices. Being a huge Hitec guy, my question is in regards to the Hitec options.

I feel like after reading many posts the consensus is that the...

I use nothing but A-123's now in my big planes. I'm getting ready to start a new plane soon so i thought it would be a good idea to cycle my new battery's . I got them from Tailgraggerrc.com about a year and a half ago. they were fully charged at that time. Today I started my cycle and found the under a 700ma load...

I want to share an experience I had today with Headsuprc. I have dealt with them (Jeff and his staff) several times in the past and have alway had great experiences with them in the form of fast shipping, good packaging, and accurate inventory on their site, but today's events really set them apart from other...

Hey Guys,

I now have the ability to record on my simulator, and I got the idea of possibly starting a precision flight tutorial series. There are tons of videos out there today showing the latest 3D tips and tricks, but not much in the way of smooth flight.
