Misc, chande that switch place, oil will get into it if you dont deflect the exaust. and as a pair of instructions would say "this is danderous and may cause a crash, this may also damage the model"

LOL

Default Delta

Miskin:
I agree, about moving that switch as it will collect
alot of oil that does not conduct well..

Read the pipe tuning guide at www.macspro.com
and tune your pipe.

CG should be just ahead of the bottom of the Z decals.

Thats my thoughts...
