    Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. I'm hoping to stir up a little motivation for other slow builders like myself! If all goes well, the maiden flight will be in the next couple of days.

    Good advice. Stick with name brands you trust, learn to tune them slightly rich on the ground and don't worry about syncing twin engines. A happy engine = a happy airplane. FYI, I've had good results...

    I never met Adrian, but I can say he is a stand-up guy who knows how to design unusual aircraft that fly very well. Here are the "bones" of my 1/5 scale GB R2 just before I covered it.

    Progress report; I just finished framing up my Page Aviation 80" Super Cub. Now all I have to do is figure out what covering, color, and trim to put on it. As is, the weight is just under 4 lb.

    Congratulations on the maiden flight! Thanks especially for the information about the power performance. I had a glow powered Hog years ago and was wondering how it would fly with electric power.

    Jtec may have a muffler for you. Check out the "in cowl" and "wrap around" style mufflers. They can also make custom mufflers for just about anything.

    Dave, as best as I can remember, the spar doublers are a little long and need to be trimmed to fit up against the last rib, but notching the rib works too. No worries!

    Since you are building, you have several options. Think about whether you want to have a hatch or just use tape to pull the tank back into the fuse compartment to work on it. Good luck!
