FAQ

What covering do you recommend for your models?

We recommend you use as light a covering as possible, as weight does make a difference in these light park flyers. We like to use Ultracote Lite and the new Park-Lite covering which has proven very easy to apply and comes in many nice colors. 

How do I get your airplanes to work in my RealFlight Simulator program so I can test-fly them?

First click on the link for the file downloads (available for the Slow Stick X, MicroSSX, MSSX Biplane) available from our website. Download the file to your computer, remembering which folder you are saving it to. Go to the “Simulator” menu and select “Import”.
Choose G#X as your file type and select the file you downloaded from my website. You should now see the model in you custom aircraft. 

My outrunner motor mount broke when I had a mishap. Should this have happened?

Our outrunner motor mounts are specially designed to be very rigid in order to prevent any unnecessary vibrations caused by the rotating motor. We have fiberglass embedded in the ABS plastic to provide this rigidity. In breaking, the motor mount better protects your motor's shaft. It is much cheaper to replace a motor mount than it is a motor! Plus, we don't know of any manufacturer who would guarantee their products will survive a crash!
 

The covering on my model looks a little faded or stretched out. Any suggestions?

You can revitalize your plane's covering my lightly going over it with a blow dryer set at low setting or a hobby blower. It is very common for plastic covering, especially during extreme temperatures or temperature variations, to stretch a bit. 

DO I HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE NEW KIT if i crash and damage my plane's wing?

You're in luck! Because we manufacture our kits locally, for a fraction of the cost of the whole kit, you can purchase exactly the parts you need to repair your plane. If you have a little more damage, we also sell complete wing or tail repair kits.
 

What do you recommend in order to keep the screws in my X-Gear set or motor mount from loosening up?

 If necessary, we recommend you use a product such as Loc-tite to keep the screws more secure.
