    RE: Cirrus SR22

    Working on a review of it right now, should be available in a few weeks.

    The short version is, the nose wheel push rod needed another brace up towards the front so there was one closer to the servo and an additional one closer to the tiller arm.

    The holes in the fuselage for the anti-rotation pins on the main wings had to be enlarged a bit, fit the rods in all 4 holes before you try to fit the wing.

    The stab saddle needed some sanding to get the stab straight.

    Nose gear strut fairing resulted in some fingers glued together, there's not a lot of gluing area but after I sanded off the finger prints it's been all good.

    Flys great! Lands slower than I expected given the thin wing. Looks awesome when it's finished.

    RE: Cirrus SR22

    Would a .15 rimfire motor and a Master Airscrew 10x7 G/F Nylon electric propeller work good with this plane? Thanks.
