    I was afraid the nose was going to be too small for most IC engines. Thanks for the update, keep us posted on your progress. Post pictures too!

    Thanks. I am hoping these will be much better than the stock setup. Just waiting for some good flying weather to give them a try.

    Ju87 Stuka update.

    Ok, so I've been flying the Stuka for 1 year now. I still love it, it's one of my favorite planes. Of my warbirds, it is my favorite. I've had some issues with the landing gear. Not so much with...

    I've never used Ambroid glue myself but I've rebuilt a couple of airframes that were built with it. In both cases the glue was very brittle and the joints broke apart easily. Not sure if that was due...

    I've always used the titebond or 30 min epoxy for laminating depending on what I was making. I picked up a gallon of the titebond 2 and it lasted for 4 or 5 years, I used it for everything from...

    I've been using Premium Titebond II glue for years. Our local Lowe's and Home Depot both carry it. Some of the larger stores even carry it in 1 gallon jugs. It works great but I've not noticed any...

    +1 what jrf said. I've always tapered mine except on my first one, it's not difficult to do and it does fly much smoother.

    My canopy is also painted black from the inside. Not to reduce glare but because I was too lazy to put a pilot in it, didn't want the weight anyway.

    Oh, and mine was a taildragger with mechanical retracts that I built in motels while I was working out on the road. Got some funny looks from maids and was thrown out of 1 motel.

    Tony,
    Not having the wing in front of me, I can't say for sure what modifications will be necessary. I am sure there will be some. You will need to take some measurements once you get your plane,...

    I agree with flycatch 100%, go with the e-flite 60-120 retracts and you'll have a lot less aggravation. I went with the stock mechanical retracts and they have worked fine but if I had it to do over...

    The short answer is...Yes. It will fly it fine. Those who use larger engines are looking for something more "peppy".

    I was thinking after reading the manual that the spinner was a poor design. I'm still on the fence about this plane. It looked as if it was a very low quality airframe, not well suited to IC engines....

    Then by all means, do a build thread! If it will handle a DLE 30 then a 1.20 four stroke will be no problem.

    I believe the Saito team pilots use 30% because they get a little more power and a lower idle speed. I've ran mine on 10% and 15% and once on 30% heli fuel and I could definitely tell the difference.
