Been looking for a while. Most planes in this size are geared towards the 200 cc and up. And most weighing 40 pounds and up. Like to see something between 36 and 38 lbs for a DA 150. Not looking to buy the plane right now but some time in the future just looking ahead for a project.

I have not seen an RC Gloster Javelin flying before so it was fantastic to see Joe's new turbine powered version of this jet at the North London Model Flying Club Scale Day event. You can see the effects of the wind turbulence on this jet through its low fast passes and on final approach. Joe is an experienced...

Hi All, The ZDZ 80 problems continue. :( Opened up and cleaned the carb, put in a donor diaphragm, and the engine will run off the primer charge from the choke but then die after a second or two. The engine has rotary valves which I understand a bit but is there anything that needs to be checked with them?...
