    Everything's bigger in Texas :cool:

    I love my .44mag and 30-06 but it gets costly to shoot those all the time. For fun I usually shoot my Ruger .22LR.

    The air temp is important too. I see you're in Michigan, if it's cold outside the paint will not spray, stick or dry quite right. I try to paint in temps at least above 50-60F at the lowest.

    Big tires can be a double edged sword. The bigger (technically its heavier that matters) the tires then the more responsive the truck becomes in flight. It's the weight of the changing RPM that...

    The biggest thing is sticking the landing.

    An old saying goes "It's not the fall that kills you, it's the sudden stop at the end" and this rings so true with RC stunts or jumps. As one of the...

    The only way it's going to overcharge the NiMh packs is if the delta peak threshold has been adjusted up too high. I did this once by accident and put over 3000mah into a 1500mah pack, that did...
