Hi Duane:

Do a search on this forum under LR1. All the details are already there. Pay special attention to the CG. There was an error on the factory supplied information.

Thanks guys, I tried the search, but some threads were just way too long to search through. I needed to know last night, I took it to work with me to fly after, and was trying to set it up last night. I guess I didn't measure any throws, just eyed them. Ailerons were pretty close, turned great, elevator was a little much. On one turn I used a lot of elevator, and it tried to snap on that turn. Flys pretty nice with the .25, lands easier than my Vipers...slows down quicker. I got worried on the last flight, motor quit, prop was just spinning, spit the glow plug out. I guess when I buy swap meet engines I should make sure things are tight! I don't like the color scheme, white/blue. This would not have been my choice colors, but I swapped planes with someone else, who bought it from another member, new plane, 3rd owner? Next, my Q40 plane!

I got the Q40 at Aiport Pawn, traded the Mach Racer delta for it. No real engine choice yet, recovering the wing, painting the fuse (the plane was well used and a little rough/cracks) Maybe I'll use the Webra .40 or my ST .45 or open to suggestions/donations!

Duane,

I would suggest a Rossi 45,50- Jett 50, webra speed 55, Jett 60LX

I could donate everything but the last two. You crash you buy!
