RC Engines Break-in and Tuning

RC Engines Break-in and Tuning

To get the most out of any RC airplane, you have to break in your engine, and pick the correct propeller for the plane’s intended use. For my fun fly Florio Flyer 60, I installed an O.S. 75AX for a little extra umphhh!  To fine tune my propeller selection I used an accurate digital tachometer to […]

Russian Front-Line Fighter

It’s hard to beat the throaty growl of a Moki 250cc engine in a classic warbird! This great-looking Lavochkin LA-7 is piloted by Mick Burrell and was videotaped by our friends Dean and Pete Coxon at the Rougham Model Aircraft Show in the United Kingdom. We think the model looks to be 1/3.5 scale, and […]
