Glow Plug Q&A: idle bars, temp ratings & more!

Glow Plug Q&A: idle bars, temp ratings & more!

HOW DOES AN IDLE BAR HELP WITH THE IDLE? The idle bar is there to keep the glow plug from getting extinguished when the engine is throttled up. When the engine is idling, it has a tendency to pool up some fuel in the crankcase so when the engine is throttled up, that puddle is […]

Flight checks for 3D flight

Exclusive sneak Peek: Futaba T18MZ

Whether young of old, most of us have something exotic that we yearn after, even though we know perfectly well that it isn’t a necessity or even attainable. For some, it may be a Porsche GT, while for other it’s a blood red Ducati Desmosedici that gets the pulse racing. For us RC guys, you […]
Using the Pitch Gauge

Using the Pitch Gauge
