Well, I guess one should first read and then buy. I for one did it the other way around [&:]and when reading this thread went running for my kit to have a look.[:-]
I am glad to say that I am satisfied with my kit.[8D] Painting looks good, covering needs a touch here and there, but generally good. I don't think I will use the hardware that came with the kit, after all, I did not buy hardware, I bought an air frame.
I believe a guy in Cape Town has built one and used a DLE 30 having to add only 2oz of lead in the nose. A 20cc should be enough for this plane but if you are going to add ballast, why not add power at the same time. It can't hurt.
If I can figure out how this browser works I will add some pics to make your mouth water. Now don't all of you go running to buy one. It is nice to have the only Dauntless at the club.
