Amram,
Very nice job on the Inspire. It looks great. Is Israel sending a team to compete in the World Championships next month? Is Ori going as a junior member of the team?

The Stock gear has been working fine for me.

I use the PT Models undercarriage because I fly on a rough field. It is raked more forward than the stock ones.

Well, I finally finished assembling the Inspire I have had for a while. I sort of lost interest in pattern this season but I got it back and finished this model. Mine currently has a V3 Contra with a neu motor. I haven't weighed it but it feels very light. I have about 25 flights on it to date and it has taken very little to get it flying well. Just one incidence adjustment to get rid of aileron trim and a smidge of upthrust as it was pulling slightly to the wheels in uplines.

All the changes made to this over an Episode have been positive. The model feels very solid, really "pointing" well. I wasn't a big fan of the color scheme but it works very well in the air.

I know I'm late to this party but I am very pleased. Wish I got it done several months ago!

OK, why is the pic upside down?
