    Even if the ignition runs the engine, I would be suspect of the frayed coax, as it might leak unwanted RF to your receiver. The plane could do unwanted things while the engine is running fine. Best...

    Bad ALPA,. bad, bad, bad. They are probably just hysterically overreacting over the remote possibility of a Lipo powered toy being ingested by an engine. So what is the big deal? It's a really big...

    I agree with the "few drops" of isopropyl, it has worked for me. "Few drops" means just enough to get the epoxy to brushing consistency. I don't know where the 50/50 dilution idea comes from, but...

    Sean, sounds like nose heavy to me. Try applying some power as you give up elevator, so as to provide air movement over the tail. If you are tail heavy, the plane will want to nose up at slow speed....

    Mine spins well, but I had a learning curve with it.
    1. Get slow with wings level
    2. gradually give full up (aerobatic up not 3D up)
    3. As the nose comes up, give full rudder, add some power...

    I fly mine with a DLE 20, 17X6 as well. Big difference is that I added over 10oz to balance. Your moving the rudder servo up forward is a very smart idea. I would do the same, but I am pretty happy...

    You might want to reconsider the tail wheel mounting. It should have the tail wheel "pivot" mounted about at the rudder leading edge. Your mounting will put unnecessary strain on the tail gear. Just...

    The G 20 should be an excellent match for your plane. Suggest a 17X6 prop or 16X8 if you want a little more speed.

    a 20cc gas engine will consume about .68 oz/minute at full throttle. I use 10 oz tanks for my 20cc powered planes. I think for an aerobatic plane 8 oz would be fine (generally shorter flight...
