You might want to isolate the fuel line from the muffler. Tygon has a low melting temp and it appears to be very close.

I'd recommend the Top Flite version. Aluminum reinforced landing gear mounts, good support from the retailer, and great flying characteristics. NOT a plane for a rookie, however.

Likely, nobody will extend them credit since they filed for protection from creditors. They're like us now; pay in advance then we'll ship.

Does anyone have a picture of a pilot name on the side of an aircraft like the Waco? I think I might put a friends name on mine and I want it to look authentic.

I appreciate your approach. I set throws to my preference on low rates and keep them there all the time. The only exception is pitch, which I max out the up elevator throw for taxi. All adjustments...

We follow the same school of thought. I've been preaching this for years. Kits, ARF's, plans almost always have a "best guess" approach to balance. When you do the math, there are no more surprises....

The design as well as the shipping crate reminds me of EcomRc products. My 40% Howard Ike is very similar in construction and the shipping crate was built like a tank.

Tommy Gun,

Do you know the chord of the wing at the root? I'd like to calculate what percentage back from the leading edge. My normal, go-to balance point is 28 to 32 percent of the chord.

I like Hydro Junkie's ideas, but how do you get rid of anybody on the EC? They seem to be "dug in like a tick."
