Wayne's Indoor World - April 2000 Wayne's Indoor World - April 2000
By Wayne Hadkins
This month, I’ve information on some new SlowFly / ParkFly products from several manufacturers and a response from the manufacturer to last month’s ‘how to’ on replacing a servo lead on one of those Taiwanese 6g servos. There are also details on my latest SlowFlyer and the interesting sequence of events that led to its construction, news from fellow aviators, and a few other surprises.

The Thunder Tiger/Ace Simple 400 The Thunder Tiger/Ace Simple 400
By Slope Nut
I decided I would like to try speed 400 pylon racing, but was nervous about destroying a true composite racer the first time out. I decided, therefore, to cut my teeth on the Ace Simple Series Speed 400 on my road to true pylon racing. So, here we go!

The Python The Python
By mrittinger
The racing Mustangs provided the inspiration for the Python. They are the tops in the world of air racing, and I thought that they would make an excellent speed 400 sized ship. As it turned out I was correct, as this little ship will give 110%! It flies great, handles smoothly, and can do just about all maneuvers you want it to. I encourage all of you to set aside 3 or 4 nights, and come to the field with this little bird. I promise you it won’t let you down!
