OUCH on the yellow one. Thanks for the pics. Looks like a great set up. Mine is going to be DA-60 powered. All I need is time to work on it.

I almost never change rates but set my radio as follows. I use just a little expo on low rates but quite a bit of expo on high rates. Most of my flying is done using about 1/3 of the stick movement....

Progress is slow as shop time is at a premium right now. I did mange to get the rudder on, servo in and pull/pull ran. Landing gear is next. Then it's time to mount the DA-60.

Thanks for the reply Vetagator. I did buy the red one from Mile High RC. Bought 2 LiFe packs to go with it from Redwing RC to go with it. Shop time is limited or it would be in already :-)

That's probably for the best. Been several years since I "built" one of my planes. But even then I would go through a stack of balsa and throw half of it away for being to heavy or warpage or wrong...

Might be worth your time to go by Hobby Lobby and measure some of their stock.

More progress. Stab is glued in. Elev halves are epoxied on with control horns in. Fin and tail wheel are on. Control horns epoxied in rudder. Everything went pretty smooth here. I did vary from the...

I think you will be happy with the performance of the 1.20 in the SB. It's a good combo IMHO. Prop clearance may be the only issue. Keep in mind however the savings in fuel cost is substantial with...

Have not personally used one. A flying buddy has two of them. He has had no issues. I don't know if it's a plus or minus for you but they sound just like a glow of the same size. Maybe it's the...

The best in my opinion are the Dessert Aircraft. I only own one however. I am a budget flyer. I can't afford to invest in a DA for every plane I own. I have fantastic luck with the DLE line. I have 6...

Like others I think the only plus to a 4 cycle gas is the sound. If scale is your main concern then by all means go down that road. If it were me I would look into the Evolution for the Skybolt. The...

I flew one with a saito 1.25 and I thought it was underpowered for 3D. As said above it would make good sport plane with a .90 but you are not going to have reserve power for on the deck flying.

Sounds like you are well on your way. I've never tried the 17x6. I may need to. Flying the profile in close and low with the 16x6 can get old. The sound is a high pitched buzz.

If you are going to disagree with the advice given that's your right. But you really shouldn't give attitude back and that's how your last post came across. A 17oz tank full of gas is almost a pound....

Thanks Andy. I'm still contemplating. I use a 10C Futaba and a 8ch RX. It's not the latest and greatest up to date radio. But it's hard to justify an upgrade on it. It has given me zero problems and...
