i would NOT use epoxy, CA, or Hysol on those scuffs.
those scuffs are very superficial paint level only.
use Bondo, sand it smooth and repaint - DONE!
good luck.

Thanks. I was simply going to use bondo on scuffs where needed. The epoxies/CA/Hysol recommendations are in reference to the hole in the wingtip...at least that's how I took it.

I did have a 12 Assist last season...l.decided to go back to the cortex pro fro next season....frankly I turn that thing on a couple times only. I’m one of those flier that like complete control and I always find Gyro invasive....(setup I know)but I did run the Cortex pro before and I did like it during the really high cross wind days...

I’m mounting the assist on my 3D and foamies planes... to take more time to play with the setup.....I did like the smaller space the assist takes, compare to an additional box.

Thanks Danny, my DS-24 shipped yesterday, should be here next Thursday, Im going to be retrofitting my existing T1 mini as well as my T1 mini on order with the new radio gear. Have not decided whether to go Cortex Pro or Powerbox yet, I have equipment for both so I just need to decide. -Tom

Would somebody that very recently received their Mini do me a favor? Please post a picture of the main landing gear with the wheel and tire. If something's changed, I'd like to update the manual.

Thank you!

Xicoy brake controller
I hav had a problem with the latest jp brake controller, flat spots on tires as the controller will not soften the brake pressure very well.
i removed the jp brake controller and replaced it with the tiny xicoy brake controller. 48 dollars at DreamWorks. It really works much better. Noticeably so..It has 5 different brake settings. I just installed it so i have not flown with it yet.
my jp controller weighed 2 oz and was over the nose wheel.
my cg went from 190 to 200mm when i replced it with the xicoy.
