Sold mine but bought it back again some few weeks after. It have been stowed away for years but it does fly so nice. For those reading about it or saw my videos I did pull out every single wood back of CG. With SC 160 twin I am at 8,8 kg with full tank. Makes it a really slow and stable model. Love it!

I've been seriously thinking of selling mine. I don't like flying at high throttle settings and this thing seemed like it needed high power settings and wanted to drop it nose when in a turn if you slowed it down. Not my style of flying. It has a 160 twin and I brought the exhausts out the scale location. I wonder if that affected the apparent need for power. Wadda you guys think?
Since at the time we flew off grass I removed the lower doors and the tail wheel doors. Have the new doors in a box somewhere out in the shop.

Looking for a set of wings...top and bottom.
Bought a scratch and dent one that was missing all the wings wings when they first came out.
Finally getting around to it.

Paul,
I have something at home, can't remember if they are the top or bottom wings. I will look when I get home tonight and let you know.

Paul,
Sorry I took a bit to get back to you, went flying all weekend! I have both top and bottom wings and the interplane struts also if you are interested in them. They are in pretty much great shape. I can send you pictures if you want.

No need for pics. I’m definitely interested. Any idea what you’d have to have for them?
Ill be at the Sepulveda basin for their swap meet on the 19th. I could pick them up from you if it all works out.
My number is 559-656-9954. Shoot me text or call and we can go from there.
Appreciate the opportunity
Paul
