When I thought about placing an order, based on info/vids I saw here, I ordered one. Had an issue with PP so I called and spoke to Jamie. He was Sooo helpful and we had a great chat. Got the plane put together and did the maiden last Sunday. Got the wife to 'launch' it in case it was way out of trim, it wasn't....

I'm going to be putting together the Twist and needed some advice on Props and electronics. I currently have a DX6i. I ordered an OS 65AX at the recommendation of the guy at the hobby shop. He said that it will have enough power to pull me out of trouble with an instructor but not so much that it'll get me into...

Joe I am putting together a 71 slick with a OS GT-33 engine. Did you have to put the rudder servo in the tail to get the CG right? Any other set-up tips to get the correct CG with the OS engine?

Also on this set-up what size fuel tank did you use?

Joe, how do you go about setting up a model in RealFlight? What are your favorites? Do you have hints or suggestions to help with setup? (for example, don't make it fly TOO easy, fly bigger models, etc etc)

Thanks in advance!

I have an O.S. FS-70 Surpass four stroke engine I bought back in 2003. I would like to move this into a nice 3D capable plane. I have been having trouble finding a suitable airframe to put this in. So many out there seem to be setup for electric.

Can you modify an electric to take gas? I've been building since...

hey Joe i was wondering if you use a heli style of throttle or a plane style,also do you use Futaba's heavier springs or the stock ones on your sticks.
i have heard that guys flying IMAC tend to use the stiffer spring,so they can return to center quicker
i heard that the heli guys like the sticks soft and smooth...
