I think you will have a riot with a Tiger 60 with a DLE 20 on it. makes me want to build another.
I will post some build pics in a minute for you.
Well what's the hold up, they are going for $139 at Tower, I don't think that is out of line for this size plane. I just examined the kit a little more closely, wood quality is good and lazer cut parts just fall out. Dont think much of the hardware kit, looks like 40 size stuff so will up grade most of it and won't need any of the gear parts. I have most of the wood I'll need for the changes I have in mind. I read this whole thread twice as well as another plus some sport plane builds to use for direction I'm going with the Tiger.
DLE20 should be here in a couple more days, got it from www.valleyviewrc.com
comes with mount, engine kill, switch and charge jack for $249 and free freight, nice little package I think. I can't do much without it as I need to see how much frontal changes I will do to accomodate it and larger fuel tank, also ignition and another battery.
I'm thinking 2 piece wing and joiner tube as done on larger sport and IMAC planes and expansion of vertical stab. for better knife edge control. Also like the idea of a removable upper cockpit and deck section to access servos and reciever and such. I'm going to have fun building this baby.
May not get started on the actual build till after Thanksgiving but will be gathering supplies in the mean time. Leroy PS, how do I get my number and signature to show, thanks
