    I have used the thin roof flashing from the local hardware store. It cuts with scissors and the sharp edges are easy to dull with sandpaper. Great stuff, and I used CA to stick it to the wood...

    As I have posted on the NGH38 FS thread, I thought the NGH38 was a bit under powered. But it did fly my 20lb DVII, so it should be a perfect match for the DRI, Camel and N28. The motor ran very...

    I had one of the NGH 38s. I thought it was a bit underpowered for a gas 38, but it ran without problems. So for the Camel it should be a good match. Following your build. Until I start my own.

    Does the manual still call for the CG to be found with the wheels DOWN? If so, that is wrong. CG should be found with the landing gear up. But perhaps you knew that already. Good luck.
