Default Avro Arrow Pusher

well, this winter i am taking on the penultimate project and building my first plane......(not literally first plane)......i will be building an Avro Arrow and am looking for a few suggestions.....i have the plans for a 40 sized monster, and have the decal sheets to make it RL205, i am wondering whether or not to involve retracts in the project, or whether to put fixed gear in.

for a motor we have an extra OS 46 FX on the bench from a little flying accident, but still works fine. whether or not it will provide enough power to push it i guess we will find out or not, but i would like some input from you guys here.....

I'm currently building the Bob Parkinson DF version of the Arrow.. I was going to put the retracts in, but I just don't want to spend the time fiddling with them right now. Since this is my first DF project, I'd like to keep it as simple as possible before jumping into anything more.

I'm learning alot from the build, and hope to have it flying at least once before the season is done.

Anyways, here's a link to the progress I've made thus far. (hopefully I can post this link here, if not, then I apologize)

good looking plane.....its nice to see that someone else sees the potential in using the avro arrow as a scale model for competition!!

so far it looks really nice......i think that it should fly just as nice as it looks when finished...

Go with the retracts. I have had no problem with mine and they do inprove performance quite a bit. Also, the look in the air with the gear up makes it all worthwile. MAD out.
