Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. Verry interesting. You may be shocked as to how well it will fly. A cut down hobbico avistar (40" wing) is quite fast, outruns most everything around in our area, turns on a dime and gives you change. You may have something great here, maby a lawn dart. Gotta go out and find out and let us know. Someone always must be a leader, why not you? Yes, it will be hot landing, hang in there m and good luck. Rever bro 119

remenke. What mods on the avistar are the guys doing to get the speed. I've cut the wing down to 40" and was wondering how to get more speed.---------Revver Bro #164
