    I like it! But, I think the cost is going to be just a bit north of my hobby budget.

    Robin,

    I have not flown near as long as Horrace, but my experience is the same. If I may offer anecdotally, I witnessed a large scale aerobat with a gas twin crash land hard enough into a paved...

    Guys,

    No, I am not on here in the mid-night hours. The RCU clock is on 1:00 am when I am at lunch and enjoying these pages.

    Sorry, I was away for a few minutes. I had to go pop some corn. My reasoning may be case for some controversy.

    No argument from me! Think about sitting in and flying the 1:1 version for the first time. That would be scary.

    I have been here longer yet and it has happened to me. I can't even blame my Rx/Tx. It was all me. First flight of a new air frame. Sometime you just get distracted. We all do stupid things...

    Jim,

    I like your engine choice too, and the weight should not be an issue considering how tail-heavy the airframe tends to be. I suspect you are going to run into prop diameter limit pretty...

    Rapid depreciation. It was not worth $999.00 after hitting the ground below the building. Even less if it landed in the street ... in traffic.

    You didn't say which design/kit. I expect it matters. I built a Dynaflight SD and it was tail heavy. Had to add significant nose weight even though I was running a Quadra 42 with mag ignition. ...

    Memory serves - the wings are built with zero dihedral. The built-in washout results in the leading edges appearing to droop. I agree that adding a small amount of dihedral would give a better...
