The Pros Tell All!

Model Airplane News - - AIRWAVES -

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!
