    RE: EME 55 DLE's new Cousin?

    It would seem to me that it would be to the advantage of the dealer to make this
    right as quickly as possible. I had been giving some thought to taking a chance

    Kudos to Agape Racing and Hobby

    I thought I would give a shout out to Jim at Agape Racing and Hobby. Last year I bought an XYZ 26 from him.

    RE: Good Biplane Kit to Build

    Check Balsa USA. They have a .90 size bi-plane kit. Look at the Phaeton .90 kit.

    Good luck,
