I've been flying my QR-1 a lot this year and really like it. I have a total of 16 batteries
Your problem with it not returning to center may be a servo saver problem or a bad servo. I've been using 2 of these for about 8 months and have not had any glitching or centering problems at all.
The spring from the metal saver is quite a bit stiffer and works great with the stock plastic servo saver.
The stock horn works with the Corona servo but you need to use the screw that came with the servo or something equivalent. On a side note my Corona servo is still holding up just fine after a lot of...
The Corona 238 is a great servo, I've been pounding on one for about 7 months now and it's holding up just fine. All of the gears are all metal, the Hitec 5085 still has one plastic gear.
I've had 2 of these for a few months now and they are still working great and I abuse them constantly. I waterproofed one that I'm using in my winter rat MERV and it has not gotten sloppy at all as...
Awesome work, and they said you couldn't do it which probably motivated you even more.
Take a small folded piece of paper (very small) and put it in the hole in the bulkhead leaving a little sticking out, it will give the screw something to bite into and should last until your new one...
The stock servo will sometimes fail rather quickly and you can get a metal gear, ball bearing high torque servo (Corona DS238MG) for 1/5 of the price you'd pay for something comparable to it.
Edit your thread, you can't say the name of the company that you listed. I wonder why the filter didn't kick in though.
That's too funny, I just bought a new tackle box to replace one of these that I've had for a few years. I know what I'm going to with now, thanks.
You can take the case apart and fill it with dielectric grease, once it's back together put a nice blob of it where the servos plug in then plug them in accordingly. I used to do this all the time...
I only use Deans connectors, they are very easy to unsolder when needed and are a lot less bulk than the Traxxas connectors. I've never had an issue getting the apart but I do hold onto a little of...
The stock 1/16 summit axles look just like the bigger ones but without the boots, the plastic is more brittle on the 1/16 summit axles when compared to the 1/16 MERV axles. I had traxxas CVDs for a...
I've done it across a 70-80 foot pool of water that was only about 14" deep using Summit tires.
Going lower on the spur and/or higher on the pinion. Just be sure to watch your temperatures.
Yes you can, the 1/16 Summit rocker are LT. It does make the truck hard to handle at speeds though.
I got a warning for quoting your edited language. Something like that should be in the rules, which it isn't, so others are aware of it.
Here ya go...
Sorry for the double post, not sure how that happened.
Why did I receive warning for language when it wasn't me who posted it? The language was filtered in the post I replied to not my response.
Thanks, that's what I thought.
Where are you using the Shoo Goo on the bulkheads? An air compressor works great for getting the excess WD-40 off of the truck when you're done.
1/8 scale has bigger bearings and gears but also a lot more power, like you said, the only why to find out is to try them. Hopefully they work out.
I've had the spiral bevel gears in a few different 1/8 buggies and never had issues with the pinion bearings.
