I need another CellPro. FMA said mine is not repairable and I am hoping to find a used one. I know, no one sells a CellPro, but I may get lucky. Thanks, Frank

I am selling my JR 11X that has DSMX. I have had this transmitter about 2 years and I am moving to Futaba, which is the reason why I am selling it. The TX has a screen protector and I left the factory protector on until I got it so the screen is in perfect condition. I am using a Hyperion 3 cell LiFe pack to power...

Joe what fuel line do you use, and how often do you replace it?
Do you use a weighted pickup in the tank or a filtered one?
What gas are you using, or another way to ask are you concerned about gas with alcohol?

I was in my "office" doing some thinking a while ago. I wondered if anyone "rotates" servos, since it seems like the tail servos take quite a bit more beating than the ailerons do. This would make the gear teeth wear faster, and overall strain on them. I did it when I put them...

Joe, I was flying with my dear friend AeroHeadTW yesterday and he's usually flying his 48" Edge on 3s. Yesterday he tried some of my 4s 2200mAh in it and it obviously made a big difference for the high energy stuff. What he also noticed, which is a bit more interesting, is that he felt the harrier was more...
