I've just maidened my MkII after MkI hit a tree. Winter flying seems to bog the L-39 down at our grass field, so I came up with this idea after a previous session of failed take offs.

Neil, there is no better airframe in my opinion. I've had two, one turbine and my current EDF. I run DS-51 with 1515-1.5Y on 10S with Castle HV-85 and Dimension Hv BEC. I have the same paint scheme but the colors are a little bogus. Forrest Green??? I might repaint mine before this season. The EDF is as good or better than my turbine version was. This is no BS. I had the Wren Green 7lb. engine in mine before i sold the whole setup to a guy from Singapore. Doug

Has anyone cut gear openings into the Savex wing. I can get one cheap but it was ordered with no retract option. A must have..

I've been asked to try and show how the fan is held in place using the formers supplied. I've included what I can and a few more. Hope this helps.

The swiss (red) version was my first one which I decided against doing the servos that way on the second.

Hi Steve
Mine has an exit of 80mm when measured across. Its slightly oval so more like 75mm vertically.
