    Talk about a necrothread. I was looking for something else and ran across this.

    But I am happy to report that mine is still alive and well; I flew it a couple of weeks ago. Now that I'm getting...

    No doubt it will fly fine; but to me, once you go past four cells the cost outweighs the advantages. Besides, I have a half-dozen cases of glow fuel to burn up. My e-ships will be waiting for me once...

    Well, another attempt at rejuvenation. Since we last spoke, I was sanding the kit and awaiting the arrival of the ARF. The ARF arrived, other projects and issues developed, and I put modeling aside-...

    It can work. Not saying it WILL, on your specific model, but I have an old 91 Surpass on a Hangar 9 Katana that is a perfect combo. The two tail-mounted elevator servos made this one quite...

    Yes, but the current e-technology allows any hydrocephalic moron to "get in the air" with just the application of sufficient cash. You never saw these kinds of idiots back in the day, because the...

    What you have is yet another example of the generic ARF .40 glow trainer of the 90s and later. Some were excellent; some were junk. The Global was toward the lower end of that spectrum, I'm afraid.

    I'm thinking the same thing. I've got several projects (two ARFs, one kit) to do first, but it might be a good idea to acquire this kit now before it gets discontinued.

    It doesn't take much vision...

    I've had a Coverite 21st Century for quite a few years now. Just used it to tighten the covering on a Sig Somethin' Xtra ARF.

    Many thanks for that, Dean. It looks to be the simplest solution to the problem.

    No. The 52" is specifically built for vibration-free electric power. An IC engine would destroy the airframe in short order.

    Looks like a Saito 1.00 is the optimum choice if I have to buy a new engine. My kit will be here first of next week; I'll verify that the Laser 1.50 is a no-go; if so, then I'll get a Saito enroute....
