Default The Hots one more time



With a short nose it gets crowded
I know that this has been done a million times but I had the plans and decided to revisit the past again. Electrifying a glow profile is tedious and one so short coupled is more work than it is worth to do the conversion.It is challenging to get this short nosed model to balance and even more so as I used original servo sizes that were standard at the time. I'd build the newer Hots from MAN plans if I was ever going to revisit the hots again

The wing has a partial battery tray built into the leading edge


Nyrods were used as wire push rods were too heavy


preliminary tests say that it will outperform the 40 size from the 80s that I had
