"Its a Home Lite 26cc engine. I got it as a hedge trimmer. It was on special only paid R555 including delivery ($50USD).   It's top heavy, being so high up on the glider. I'll just have to see how that affects…"

"That is a very impressive glider... what type is it ? I have been looking at normal petrol engines as they are easily replaced and don't require special fuel. I plan to fly in remote countries, and obtaining nitro fuel is going to be a…"

"Hi Anton. Thanks for the video. My 26cc petrol engine is awesome. Originally I had a 220cm push fan on it but it was over heating and was causing vibration. I put a 50cm wooden prop on and was testing it today. It doesn't cut out so I…"

"13.5x7 folder, have to check on the brushless motor, it is a loaner and i never checked the specs because it had adequate power and duration. Ardu says i am pulling <7 amps in high cruise at 27-30 mph so the duration with a 5800 pack makes sense…"

"Hey Michael. My 5mm to 10mm coupler arrived today. Seems to hold the two shafts together. I ran some more tests on the 2.74cc Nitro and unfortunately its still not performing how I would have wished. It seems to only function at…"

"@ Michael: What engine and propeller are you using to get 1 hour flight at your X8 ?? Could you please share link ? I use a 11000mah 4s and is getting 1 hour as well, so your setup is much better! Tommy"

"I am flying an X8 with 5800mah, 3 cell lipo and easily getting 1 hour flights will full autopilot and FPV gear. The complete weight, as flown, is 5 pounds, 6 ounces. This airframe would easily carry another 5800 pack, maybe 2 more. What i like is…"
