Newly admitted SAM 8 Model Airplane Club member, Bill Jung, and I, David Higgins, spent a memorable day last week trimming out his newly acquired AMA Beta.
We’ll go through all the events of that day and will report back via a web page on this site outlining what we found and will also give you information about the modifications we made to Bill’s plane that nearly sent it O.O.S. even though it was a rather cold day in Washington State.
With some help from Jeff Nisley, we together researched items that a “Newbie” to this hobby can send for at the same time you order your Beta. These items and some instructions we provide will enable you to make similar upgrades to your model so you can begin to enjoy the awesome performance we enjoyed.
On this new web page we will give some advice on a better propeller and propeller shaft situation that in our experience, makes all the difference in added performance. (Did I mention it almost went O.O.S.?)
Currently the Beta is out of stock at the AMA website, however we know of a place that currently has some and at a more favorable price.
So by all means, don’t delay. Visit our new web page, and as always fair winds and thermals.
Webmaster’s Note: The link to this page can also be found on our site’s main navigation bar at the top under the name IMPROVE THE AMA BETA.
