My friend has both engines, the Rossi isn't a patch on the West, in fact his rosi has been a pain in the ass, he brought it because of its reputation. he wont be buying another, becides, Magnums and wests together are a good deal.

You can, but its sacrlidge, the 2-5lbs rated Robart retracts will fit, but are far to weak to cope with a dead stick, or more than feather touch landing. Hand launch is easy with little more than a push needed.

Smooth, fast, stuper stable, needs lots of elevator for flaring on landing. you will have to relearn how to land, when the engine cuts pull up and wing over and point it at the landing site as quick as poss, point it where you wanna go and dont try to slow it down, flare the landing. ( vids of this are on my site www.philsrcworld.fsnet.co.uk )

148's are being used, tho i recomend 3001's at least

If it was it wouldn't have it... it's meant to fly fast, not glide around on half throttle. thats why the glide sucks.

only other thing, check the CF look time isnt gonna come off, tape the edges down
