RE: 50cc Reactor
Hi guys, I have a reactor and ever time I come to a Hover it requires a lot of constant elevator to keep the nose from dropping towards the Belly. My other 50cc are usually hand off in the elevator. I can bring it a foot of the ground but its always needs a lot of elevator. I was wondering if any of you experienced the same thing and How to correct it ? also have any of you increased the right thrust with washers ? I put a 2 1/2 bars of lead in the tail becuase its way nose heavy. I appreciate anyones help on the hover issue.

RE: Great Planes Reactor 120-160?
Hi everyone, I would just like to write to those who don’t know much about the reactor. This is only my OPINION so please don’t take offense to it I just bought one, and I’m almost done with building so hopefully I can maiden it this weekend. Regarding the building part, its one of the worst planes I ever worked on comparing to the others out there. eg. OMP, Aeroworks, Goldwing. If you don’t own one then you don’t know what your missing, if you don’t like the Building part like me the reason the reactor sucked is that there are a million things you have to do to get it ready comparing to the other brands out there e.g. 1. the spinner doesn't fit the prop 22X8 xoar or Hawk, so you have to buy a new one $$$ 2. the throttle servo is way at the back and in the worst place ever, so you have to spend a lot of time to fit and glue the stupid rod. 3. the landing gear is horrible and one of my blind nuts was actually it in the compartment below the landing gear, there is no way to get to it without making a big hole in the bottom of the plane, which I did. 4, the stab is really weak and there is not much space to glue it to the body, 5. the rods/ servo arms are so outdated and I cannot believe that Towerhobbies is still producing them. you cannot compare that to OMP, Pilot or Goldwing. It takes a lot of extra extra extra time to put together and solder 6. the kit is cheap but by the time you buy everything else its actually equal or more than the rest quality planes that I mentioned 7. you have to buy, longer engine standoffs, spinner cause it looks bad cutting the included one, long servo arms, maybe a new landing gear. 8, you have to glue all of the control surfaces which take up a lot of time and other manufacture have that done for you, also you have to assemble the fuel tank No biggie there. Just time wasted not flying anyways these are some of the annoying things I’m sure this plane will be an amazing flyer and I’m so anxious to get it up in the air, but I’m just referring to what you have to buy to get it up it in the air, and it cost as much as other planes by the time you’re done with it and have bought all of the necessary things I recommend all of you who are building one to buy the Jtec muffler that is made for it so you don’t have to drill the cowl, its super nice but that a $ 130 shipped. all in all this plane is a pain to build and I’m really disappointed in TH for making their kits the way they do, the Quality is good EXCEPT FOR THE STAB, but they have not tried to improve their kits since the 80's or close to that. so please don’t take offense to this is just my opinion, I love what TH sell but I think this is that last plane I’m buying from them, I just couldn’t resist the reactor cause I’m sure it will be one of the best flying out there. If you hate building like I do then you should not get this plane
