I should receive my 85a Series B this week and 10a Castle BEC. Where do you guys splice in the two, at the battery connector or cut back some insulation back away from the connector and solder in there?

I thought it would be fun to start a poll where people could express the number of years they have been in the hobby. (By 'in the Hobby' I mean anything involving R/C aviation.) It would also be fun to hear one brief piece of general advice from each person for those starting in the hobby today. (This might even...

So yesterday my work gave me a nice bonus. 3K but after taxes it came out to just over 2200. And since this is basically found money I was thinking about getting another plane.

I recently got a 89 Slick and I am loving it. All of my electrics have been gathering dust since (3DHS 51 Slick, EF 48 Edge & 3DHS 47...

First, I think I can speak for the entirety of the staff here as we all have multiple children; Our hearts and prayers are going out to those affected.

Hi everyone, I am Jacob Pollak, I am 15 years old, and I am from south Florida. I was introduced to flying in 2009 when I was offered a deal on a stick, a week later I started on the buddy box and quickly progressed to sport flying within weeks.
