Make sure you install brakes on your mains. Thats a short runway for this plane.

I have gotten parts directly from ESM in China, just send them a e-mail, you can get that off the internet. Or you can try VQ Warbirds in USA they are the USA distributor for ESM and they say they keep some parts.

I have Sierra retracts in mine that I am trying to sell. They have been converted to electric with "Down and Locked". If you are interested in what I did to install them, I have many photos. If you are interested, send me an email at bcplanes@msn.com and I will email you photos.

Since no one seems interested in buying my whole airplane, I am thinking of selling the engine, retracts, and radio components separately and hanging the airplane in a local small airport terminal. I have to get rid of my large airplanes as I am physically unable to lift them any more and we are moving to a condo. If you are interested in the Sierra retracts, let me know.

Thank you,
The inside is not ready yet, I had to remove al the bulkheads I made to install the turbine because the CG is to far to the front.
The turbine is now more backwards just behind the acceshatch on his back, I just need to cut the thrust tube a bit shorter now.
When I look to the manual, I see the CG should be about 100mm in front of the main gear.
Can anyone confirm this?

Johan

As i remember it is 8,5 inch at the root of the wing. And it is correct one. I had a little tail heavy and i had a really ****ty oscillation durig approach but manage to land safe. And it was only 1 inch back from this pubilcated number.
