Default Here is my current .10 size Shrike

This is my current .10 size Shrike. It has an OS .32SX engine on it with a MACS tuned pipe. It's pretty fast. I beefed up the wings, plus they are fully sheeted. The rear where the fins are is solid balsa instead of the open frame work. The fins are angled in instead of out. I also moved the engine back about a 1/4" so it wouldn't be too nose heavy. I have a 600mah pack in the back and it did not nead any lead. I probably have over 60 flights on it now with no problems. The wing loading is a little high. I have never clocked it, so I don't know how fast it is.


Thanks,
Craig
