Default RE: Golden Skies Crossfire

Craig,

Glad to read that you are building the Crossfire. You will not be disappointed. I have a OS 91 four stroke for power and fly at half throttle most of the time. I am a died in the wool sport flyer and she will do all of the aerobatic manuvers that I can handle. She is fully capable of 3D with additional power required.


Think that she came in around 7 pounds. As far as the balance point, Lee at Golden Skies suggested that for general sport flying that I set the balance point at 3 and 13/16th measuring back from the former at the front of the wing saddle. I had to add some weight, stuck it to the engine mount, to get her to balance at the suggested setting.

I am going to try and insert the picture that Lee sent me for clarification.
