Default Nelson Q40 too much for LR-1 Speed Cat?

What do you guys think? I have seen videos of it with a Jett BSE 30, but don't know how different the weight is and the footprint. Any input? Thanks. -Chris

Shouldnt be a problem, probably be better off with a Q40 airframe. Easier to land and not so prone to breaking stuff.

Isn't this the same ship that air-wild sold for 129.99?

This looks exactly like the Wildhare LR1. Beware the wing is very weak.

For $300 if you're going to put a Nelson Q40 in, spend the extra $200 and buy a proper Q40 Airframe, you'll go faster and it will be designed properly for those speeds.

Heres mine with a BSE35 JETT

Don't forget to cut for the rudder, you will need right rudder for take off or this thing will ground loop on you 95% of the time.

That's a neat looking plane! Looks like the exhaust pipe is tucked inside the cowl?

They don't stock them any more, and the price used to be around $170,
BVM is supposed to be a supplier but when you call them up they don't know what you are talking about !!!!
The ashley II is another good looking air frame that is made by the same company, If any one is interested we could put an order in ???
