I'm selling 4 Hitec hs-225mg servos. They are used but in great condition! All work great!

They will come with all mounting hardware and servo arm screws. There will only be one set of servo arms though.

$80 shipped for all 4.

How do you go about setting throttle curves on gas and electrics. I guess no curves on the electrics (perhaps negative on an electric).

Just by feel to try to match gas and electrics?

I was flying my e-72 and gas 87 back to back yesterday and really noticed the quicker throttle on the gas....

Hey guys!, Were here with the 3rd installment of the series covering Snap Rolls. I don't have a lot to state on this subject, but I went ahead and covered the basics of snaps and how to perform them. In later episodes I will get more in depth with them while doing actual aerobatics that use them. Hope this has...

Here is the build photos I did of my 150cc Raven. This plane is almost two years old now and still flying great.

Plane has a DA-150 on Greve pipes.

I’ve started the assembly of my new 30% OMP Extra 300 mid-wing ARF. I’m on vacation thru Jan 6th and should have ample opportunity to work on the Extra along with some maintenance on my 100cc Yak SP-55M and 71” electric Slick. It would be nice to have this project completed and ready to maiden should there be...

These are older photos, but thought to share it here. Embry-Riddle R/C Club purchased this airplane to be used for competitions and air demos for the school. It competed in a contest this past February down in Miami and the ERAU students did very well with it considering none of them competed in IMAC before!...

On point rolls when im in KE im getting coupling and also im having to hold alil aeliron to get wings to...

So, I just installed a couple of Hitec HS-5245MG's in my 3DHS 59" Slick and have been thinking about hooking them up to a Hitec servo programmer to center the arm vs. using my subtrim feature in the radio. I have always used subtrim and am now wondering if there are any benefits to either option?

I have went...
