Default Any good and trustworthy ARF builders in the Orange/LA County area?

Any expert (and trustworthy!) builders within 20 miles of Fullerton, CA that want to put together a Magnum ARF for around $100-$120?

(i.e. take the servos, pushrods, engine, etc from a crashed Magnum and install them in a New-In-Box Magnum ARF [while also setting up the rest of the plane])

Builder should have good ratings on RCU! [8D]

Keep the new one for spare parts. I'll just use 200 mph tape to patch the other one back into shape.

The Magnum goes together very quickly. Did your old one crash because of elevator failure? I did not like the stock setup. Modified mine with 1 servo for each elevator, ran it outside of fuse to allow for straight run with 4-40 rods. Strong, no slop and working great.

No, when I was approaching to land, I accidently hit the aileron high rate switch instead of the elevator high rate switch (hadn't flown in awhile and I guess I was a bit rusty). All of a sudden I had way to much aileron right before touchdown and cartwheeled on the wing.

I would like a pic of your elevator set-up.
I'm building mine right now and hate that flakey tube affair and really don't have a good way of bending and sliding the rods thru the tubes and coming out in a good line.
