The Pros Tell All!
It’s always good to learn something new, so we recently posted a great how-to article that included several tips and tricks for building and flying RC airplanes. We asked some of the more experienced big names in the hobby to share some tips. You guys noticed, and here’s what you said.
CR: There are some good tips, but I would need a whole article to learn Nick Ziroli’s wing-fairing tip.
BM: Mike Greenshields makes some good points. Most of the pilots I know never range-check their planes, and I’ve seen it cost them. I always, always, always range-check.
JT: I really enjoy reading about engines. Dave Gierke is the best source for two-stroke and four-stroke engine information.
CM: David Scott is spot-on! Coordinating rudder with aileron eliminates adverse yaw, and you don’t need a computer radio. Learn to use the rudder!
SE: Thanks to Aaron Ham for showing a great way to start gasoline engines. I always have had a hard time of it. Not anymore.
AB: An excellent article all around. I always learn something on the MAN Facebook page. Thanks!
