Thoughts from the workbench of Radical RC. The online retailer of electronics and kits for radio control aircraft. Dave Thacker shares his thoughts and knowledge of electronics, batteries, kit design and overall enjoyment of the hobby.
Check out Kern Hanson’s Slow Stick Bipe creation. I can see parts from various models and he altered the wing mount system to hold the motor a bit higher than the stock setup would have been. The whole point with Slow Stick mods is to do it your way. Great Job Kern!
Dave here’s a few pictures of a Slow Stick Bi-Plane I built using a couple of your SS hop up parts. It’s very stable and fly’s nice and slow 🙂
Our shop is directly across from the Airfroce Museum. Almost driectly across from the flag pole. When you exit Woodman Dr (also called Wright Brothers Parkway) onto Springfield Street, the Air Force Museum grounds are on your right. On your left on a parallel road (Huberville Ave) there is a small neigborhood. There are several commercial buildings on this road. Radical RC is one of these buildings. It is a single story 3 unit 3600 square foot block building. There is usually a large white trailer parked in front of or beside the building. There is no sign visible from the street. Just find 5339 Huberville and your there.
What you’ll find: One of the country’s most unique suppliers. You won’t see much of anything from the big two (Horizon or Hobbico). You’ll find all the supplies you need to really build a model airplane and of course all the model electronics we are world famous for. This is a “Flying Machines” shop.
