I've got one that has a K & B .20 on it. You take off with the wheels or hand launch, either way. Getting it down is the biggest problem. It wants to float forever. I used standard servos in mine and...

But the second one builds a lot quicker than the first one! I framed up one for a friend. Had the fuse done in 4 evenings. But, I don't think I would build anouther one either if I lost mine. I love...

RE: Sig Komander

I had one in the 80's that I put retracts on. It's a different looking bird with no wheels, SIG even put it in their ad in the Dec. 82 issue of Model Aviation. It was also noticebly faster!

RE: Giant Telemaster Build

A transformer should be available to step down to 110/120, but I don't know how pricey it would be. May not be worth it unless you do a lot of building and shaping. That didn't occur to me that you...

RE: 130 Flaps

I suppose the fiberglass does offer some structural stability to it, but I guess you could put the urethane directly to the wood if you wanted to. Personally, I would use the light weight cloth and...
