Motor problem by scout13 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
how have you got the batteries connected each pack is 7*2v have you wired them so it is putting to much power to the motor also looks as though you have covered up all the air vents to the motor also try a fuse in the system it saves blowing up speed controllers hope this helps

Plans for Balsa wood by scout13 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
hang on to your balsa wood and have a look at eezebilt.th/plans the wood can be used with grain vertical for curves or it can be joined if you have longer model plans I have a 45inch plank on frame model and the planks are all 10mm balsa and all are joined somewhere along their length or can be used for bulkheads also have a look at Glynn Guest plans most are aimed at beginners hope this helps Yours Scout
