The Milton mod is using a nylon tie strap running through silicone fuel tubing. When installing, you pull the strap quite tight.

This is the only way I could get rid of excessive vibration warnings in my vbar logs when I was using the black or blue sensors on my Vibe50. The silverline sensor works fine without it, but I'll still put a Milton mod strap on (perhaps not quite as tight) for peace of mind that the 3m tape doesn't let go some day.

Heck, I will throw in two cents.
I like a three way!

Get your mind out of the sex. I am talking gas, glow, and electric.
All have good and bad points. But I love them all and they each get a turn.
If you are still thinking sex, go see your girlfriend/wife. No girlfriend/wife? Quit spending so much time and money on helis and get out there!

Blades; what goes around, comes around!

Nitro for everyday
Kerosine for the scale
Electric for inside

Thats the way it should be....

Electric for inside
It might be a bit difficult to fly my Goblin 700 and my Logo 700 indoors!!!!

Why does every thread that discusses nitro always turn into an E vs. N debate? I have both and like each for different reasons. If nitro fuel were the same price as gasoline, I would probably fly nitro equal time with electric. With nitro fuel so costly, I fly electric mostly for economy.

Maybe someday a supercharged gasoline engine can be fitted to an RC heli at a reasonable cost. Then gasoline will replace both nitro and electric IMO.

It already seems as though nitro repair parts are getting scarce... Last time I needed a Rev limit sensor, I went online and found it easy as snap...now I had to visit half a dozen sites to find one in stock, and come to find out the AR7100R is now obsolete??? Geez....what are we coming to? Finding OWB's for Align 600N's is getting difficult and visit a site and see what nitro kits they have now...Its getting pretty rough...Hardly anyone carries anything Align anymore, except the 2 (600N and 700N) newest DFC kits.

I do not drink or smoke either so the price for nitro is not that bad for me . I enjoy the nitro and will always fly the fuel. I like to refuel and off I go.

Because the E guys just cannot stay out of it.
They hate nitro and list all the reasons why...in a thread that has nothing to do with anything they are saying.

They just have to justify the huge expense of their electric toys.lol...

Nitros are toys too...Don't get your panties in a bunch.

I literally never use the word literally right.

I read an articule on a new battery for cel phones of 600,000 mAh that you will charge every 5 months.

Technology is advancing fast, they will be available for our hobby around the corner later.

Nevertheless, i fly nitro every Saturday because I love it; my only electric heli is a 450 and in the Summer , with no wind, i take it to the field.

I have been in this hobby for over 38 years, I will not give up the smell of burned glow ever; my guess is electrics are a new generation deal.- we jump from nitro to electric and back to explore, but personal preference is key to this question.
That is why ford versus chevy will always end up on this type of treads !!!

It was replaced by the AR7110R

http://www.horizonhobby.com/product...iter-SPMAR7110R

but if you ask me voltage regulators are obsolete. Use servos rated at straight voltage from a LiFe or LiPo pack, no regulator to buy or fail. IMO

Except now the speed of the servo now varies with the battery and it's state of charge adding variables to the control loop. Perhaps the next rage will be to have regulators in all the servos. Lol
