Seems simple enough but the very popular anodized aluminum toggle style single and dual switches are reportedly problem prone. The old reliable slide style switches are potentially limited to lower voltage systems. Pin style safety switches and .......did someone say remote??? ......switches can be pricey. So...

Hello all. I have been on this board since 2017 and been flying since I was 16. I'm 52 now and don't care to do the math. If I do the math, I will make myself feel old! I started like most others did back then, with a Control Line plane and a Cox engine (Damn little finger biters). Moved into the Nitro Stuff then...

Super little hand launched warbird. Very easy to assemble out of the box. No decals to apply. Takes 15 minutes! Just charge your lipo, plug it in and fly. 2 schemes available. Convenient hand grip for holding and easy hand launches. Flight wise this model has lots of power, good for fast and slow passes, aerobatics...

Have decided to order the Wendell Hostetler 29% Bucker Jungmeister plans and have been looking for a build thread on the various forums but it appears that there aren't any documented builds. Thought I would put it out there to see if anyone is aware of a thread on GSN or another forum that I haven't seen to this...

Well Fella's, As I mentioned in another thread, I will soon be in possession of a Bill Hempel 35% Yak 55 airframe in the blue and white scheme. I was supposed to go pick it up on Sunday, but I was held up too long in Florence SC on Saturday and I was whipped by the time I got home. The engine I'm going to use is...
