  • My AL37 just arrived.
    OMG this thing is a monster!
    Considering that my den and dining / build room already look like the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, I'm in trouble when the misses gets home...
    It's ok honey, we're going shopping this weekend for a larger home but I have 30 days to get this bird operational before the warranty expires.

    On to the graphics,, I'm rolling with the retro Delta Widget livery.
    It will be a hybrid of the pictured Delta 737-800 "what if" livery very similar to what Delta ran on their 737-200's and the magnificent scheme on 727-200.

    • Desolation Angels have fun with it. They are great flying planes. I put 4 on mine last weekend.

                    • Hello,
                      i am planning to fully whrap my AL37 in fiberglass like i did to my Freewing F-16. What is your takeoff weight with all that paintings and addons?
                      Glassing my F-16 increased the total weight by 200g which was not an issue for the F-16 at all but i am not sure about this one as i have not received and therefore flown mine yet of course and don‘t have a feeling of how much extra weight it can handle? I would assume only glassing will add around 250 gramms to this one as well, i dont have to calculate the paint as the weight of paint is the same on epo and fiberglas of course.
                      main reason i wanna glass it is that i want it to be beautiful as long as possible and to remove all the foam structure that those foamies usually have. Or is the original base color so good that there is almost no foamstructure visible and the surface resistent against dirt, pressure etc?
                      I would really appreciate your thoughts and experience with this plane.

                      • Hello,

                        I just placed an order for an AL37. I'm excited to start on the custom livery. I'm currently shopping or a receiver and wanted to gather opinions/recommendations from the experts. What receiver did you decided to install and why?

                        I've primary used Spektrum receivers. I'm considering the Spektrum AR637T or AR8010T. I started looking into the Admiral RX600SP which I believe are slightly modified Lemon RX receivers.

                        Anyways, i'm looking forward to any recommendations or advice.

                        • I‘ve got the AR637T in many of my planes. It is awesome and the features are much better compared to the previous AR636. Full recommendation and i already bought one for my AL37.
                          i cannot say anything about Admiral etc as i only use the original receivers because of 2 losses with orange receivers due to transmitting issues

                              • Is it possible to program the ESCs to have reverse?
                                just so that when I land I can flip a switch and give throttle and the EDFs can reverse

                                  You need reversing ESCs. The stock ones on this plane are not that kind.

                                    I have a set of the reversing 80 amp brushless ESC's to put in mine They are made by Aero Star RVS and distributed by Hobby king. One thing to remember both Fans have to be completely stopped when you reverse them. you will need to set the brakes in the programming

                                      Perfect, yes, I intend to set an idle up for taxi and fly so it’s more scale, when landing a switch with a mixing to zero thr and reverse thr stick, so when I hit that it will stop the motor and the thr will act the reverse thrust, hitting the switch back up it resume normal operation
