may just need to make your own holes for them. I found that the ones they cut out some times have a bind. If you make your own you can make sure if moves freely.

Default Hmm.. Lanier F-4?

You know, I don't remember- I thought there were some very small/light indents to make the cut- (I will keep thinkin' about it)

Make sure the CG is correct- I had to put my RX-Batt. AND some weight in the tail cones to balance her out with my YS-45...

If you do a search on Lanier F-4 (assuming this is the prop-jet you have...) There is alot of good info-

What engine you gonna run? Thought about B&D air retracts?

Anyhoo- Keep us posted,
james

Default Sweet-

Rossi-45...Good choice! Kinda heavy tho> so stuff that flight pack, back on the shelf by the elev. pushrod exits!

Everything else is pretty straight forward- Real nice ARF... I ended up glassing the base of the horiz. and vert. stabs at the fuse for strength...( not a have-to)

You have the mini-pipe or a full-on tuned pipe on the Rossi?

Let us know if you have any questions...

I put 3 more flights on mine just today! Lands slower every time...

Later,
james
