Picked up a 13x8 and a 14x4w didn't have a 14x6 but was assured this would be almost identical

Just got home and the engine is here and I'm not disapointed

Glad the engine appears good :-)

The 14x4w is a 3D type of airscrew - really no idea if it will suit a Wots Wot or not, but it certainly won't be fast!

Would you be interested in swapping it for a 16x16 APC I somehow seem to have going spare...?

Roy, I've just got this nagging feeling that I didn't re-crimp one of the closed-loop ferrules. You might want to check!

Also, did you do a post-mortem on that throttle servo?

Yes I have checked them and they are crimped.

Haven't looked at the servo yet was just gonna bin it but I will strip it down and take a good look.

Managed to get a 14x6 prop in the end so that 14x4w is going spare if you want it?

Ordered 10 of those sg5010 but only 5 in stock bet I get one doggy one will just be my luck I always seem to get 1 doggy servo every time I buy servos apart from my Hitec ones they are sweet!

Hmm - no tracking at that shipping price. Nobody will nick 'em though cos they're rubbish servos ;)

I have never found Inwood Models pricey. for the UK they are reasonably cheap. You can't compare Hobby-king servos to JR or Futaba./+ Hitec and thus a far higher price. It's a bit like those that stick the cheapest nastiest servo on the throttle and then cannot get a consistent return to idle.or low idle due to the low resolution and wide center band.
Must stop feeding the monkeys and give them less Bananas. Although, Their are plenty of monkeys out their that need feeding.

Actually I merely suggested where you could get them from!

Anyway, they will be fine (for what they are) I was only kidding, which is why I ;)'d
