If you're an eBay user, you might try this guy... the item didn't sell at $5.95, perhaps he'll negotiate? If you're concerned about eBay rules and regs, simply ask him to re-list it at a lower price,...

As planned, maiden flight was made with CG at 100mm aft of root LE. During a13+ minute flight on 4 brief (20-30 second)motor runs we got in 3 decent dive tests; these tests indicate the plane isstill...

RE: 157

Agree on most points, but I found it very difficult to explain the vast <u>differences in ranges</u>, i.e. 55 to 80mm actual vs 114 to 122mm calculated. Just didn't make sense. After sleeping on it,...

RE: 157

Found! Seems a fellow in Australia did this same mod, mounted the stab at1.5 degrees incidence. This apparently worked fine, since he only needed a few clicks of elevatortrim on the maiden flight.
