RE: Do you use FrSky Modules and Receivers?
I have around 6 of the FrSky 2.4GHz, FASST 7 ch receivers. They are in a mix of sail planes and powere planes. I am using them with a set of Futaba 10CAG, 10CAP, 9CAP and a couple of 8U's with FASST modules. When I first purchased a FrSky around a year ago, I did some extensive range testing against a standard Futaba receiver as well as installing it in one of my old trainers and boring many holes in the sky. I had no problems what so ever. So I purchased a few more and so forth and so on. I fly with these FrSky receivers all the time and so far they have been just fine.

RE: Richmond RC Enya Engine pricing
Folks, I ordered an Enya 50CX from these folks, gave my credit card etc. The next day I get a call from a lady there and she tells me they don't actually have any engines, also there is no ETA for back ordering. This website is in Canada and I am worried that it is site designed to lure you in and then wack your credit card. Anyone actually bought an engine from these folks? Rgds,

RE: Garage ceiling plane storage (looking for plans)
Hi! Always interesting. My solution is hooks in the ceiling, small pully blocks purchased at Home depot, 1/8 th nylon line and cleats. I make harnesses for the planes and haul them up to the ceiling, the nylon line is passed through the pullys and tied off to cleats mounted on the wall. The big heavy planes, 25lbs and greater, have block and tackles so the lifting force is reduced. I have around 20 planes hanging in my garage in this fashion.
