    The manual specifically mentions a gas motor and shows pics of one being installed. My friend Fred who also bought the plane thinks the firewall is strong enough.....he's been building for 30+ years. It definitely wouldn't hurry to add additional strength to it though.
    As you know, manual specs do not really amount to too much IMO. (CG issues anyone?) Experience tells me otherwise, and if you remember, I commented on mounting to that box when I initially saw the thing. Any mods will be very easy though, and it should not take much.

    I almost wonder if maybe you guys should start a new thread specific to this plane, now that it is the primary focus? Might help others to find it that are interested.
    I'm not doubting your suggestion to add strength to the motor box. I had fully intended on doing it anyway.....but what i do will be done in a way that will aid in securely mounting the cowl and ability to add ballast.

    ORIGINAL: alanc

    I see 2 tongues in the wing root, and slots for these short tongues in the fuselage wing section,Β* but is there a tube fastening them all together?Β*Β*Β* what gives the wingΒ* & fuselage join rigidity
    There is a decent size aluminum tube.

    RE: HobbyKing 50cc Warbirds

    I may start a thread when I have all the parts for this build, it's real tempting to glass the wings and do a re-paint, but I'm going to resist. I'm looking at the canopy now running through some ideas for a decent cockpit that I will build. Also may do the exhausts in resin also.

    My engine box is different from yours kahloq, check it out. You need access through the top for the servo's but mine has solid wood on the sides.

    Looks like Kahloq accidentally bought the electric version!

    Fred's motor box looks like mine. Quite possible the manufacturer made improvements as they produced them

    RE: HobbyKing 50cc Warbirds

    UPDATE on the T28 form Hobby King.   I gave up.   Had a friend in China on business who offered to pick up a T28 while there and get it to me.  I could not arrange to have one picked up.  He tried from there are well.   So that project idea was scrapped.
