    Lamar, your set-up looks real good. The Syssa has run very good for me so far. I still need to put some time on it to get it run in. I still have less than 1/2 gallon through it!

    Build well!

    I always smile when I see happy holidays, or hear someone say it instead of Merry Christmas.

    Holiday is derived from the term Holy Day.

    So, God bless our troops, Merry Christmas and Happy...

    Lamar,

    I have a Syssa 30cc engine up front with ignition and battery in the compartment behind the firewall. I moved my receiver battery back from the wing about 8 inches to balance the plane...

    Lamar,

    You will be fine putting the tank in the forward position per plans. kmeyers is right that typically in gassers the fuel tank is on Center of Gravity. I moved my servo mount back and put...

    Hey Lamar, concerning the lower hatch, the panel right in front of the landing gear is a perfect place to put one in. Here's what I did...

    Hey Justin,

    If she's not squared and trued, it takes adjustment to make her fly straight and level...:) No such thing as overkill on a warbird. If you notice a problem on the ground, it won't...

    I put all servos in the standard location too, and also used the pushrods that came with the kit, the configuration seems to work fine. One thing I did upgrade are the control horns and I also...

    Hi Lamar, from the looks of your pics, you have a real nice build going there! I reduced the wing span on mine to 78" and she's still not real snappy in rolls, and still floats like a trainer! It's...

    Hey guys! Nothing "new", still working on the D to B conversion, but I think I've found a pilot for my T/F P-51D ARF 60 bashed into P-51B. He's a little big but I think he's going to make a nice...

    Jesse,
    PeterF is right, All of the wing weight is in the center section of the wing. The wing union should be strong enough if you build according to plans. One tip for you as you build your...

    I have been working on fitting E-flite electrics into a wing that I am rebuilding. The stock retract struts have a 5 degree bend in them I guess to give the gear more forward angle. I cut a piece of...

    Is it just me or does everyone else have more than one build going on at one time. It seems like once I get to the covering part, I have to break out...

    Autotecart, you have probably figured it out by now that you will have to run your wiring from the electric retracts around the wheel well and through the wing ribs. You just have to decide how to go...

    Well, thought it was about time I chimed in. I was encouraged by my uncle to buy a “wooden airplane kit that could really fly” when I was about 10 years old (Guillow’s I think). I have to admit, even...

    You bet 52larry! When I bought it I was thinking it was a 71" span per the Horizon Hobbies specs, but was pleasantly surprised to find it is 80". I had to be sure so I measured two 37" wing halves...
