I run an optical kill switch on all my gassers. I think it is a very safe way of running a gas engine. I had a throttle servo fail on my grandsons 30cc Extra and was able to line up with the runway...

Steve,
You can probably load the plane into 3.5 but it may fly a bit different. Not sure but you can try.

I like the way the plane handles in RF, Robert has a winner on his hands.

Jim,
My WACO is 1/3 scale has a 120" span and a 3W-157 for power. With a 10ft span the WACO is a massive plane. Quite impressive in the air I might add.

Robert,
The RF version 7.5 runs...

The tips are actually green.
The lighting was not the greatest when I took the pic. With these props costing over $60 a pop you don't want to have to buy too many for sure.

Do you have the ability to print your own decals? I can scan one and send it to you and you can size it to 1/3 scale and print on decal paper.

Yes I do, I have 7.5

A guy on the Knife Edge forums created a CS for my 33% WACO. He also modified the AV file for me so it fly's like my WACO. Really does help.
