I received this GoPro clone from Hobby King.
It one ups the GoPro while costing about a third or a fourth of the price and even has better contrast, color rendition and scene lighting handling.
Sorry to hear about your loss.
It always hurts to loose a plane.
Maybe a new plane for the now available extra space you have, awaits you?
One possibility is to go to onlinemetals.com and order an aluminum tube cut to size.
You'll need to know the diameter of what you need.
Check out their aluminum guides that will help you decide...
I added about 8oz ( a whole container ) of "Liquid metal" from Deluxe Materials, which is basically tiny lead shot, to the extreme front of the cowl.
The lead shot mixed with epoxy greatly...
The 88" Gilmore is a 50cc plane. A 120cc engine is too much for it.
Why does everyone ONLY re-inforce landing gear by shoring up the attachment plates/area?
The problem is the TORSIONAL force ( e.g. front to back ) and the lever moment around the attachment area....
Here a Stik, there a Stik!
I didn't know your monikker here.
BTW: Your PItts problem kept hounding me for the next day.
It is DEFINITELY very tail heavy. You do not have to do anything with the engine...
There IS quite a variety on what is available with the predefined engines.
You can easily create any engine based upon performance data for a particular engine/motor.
It is quite simple to do....
If you happen to be around a question.
What did you do to affix the provided metal strut hold downs to the wing and the carbanes to the fuse?
It looks like there is a hole in each of the metal...
That MAY be a "new thing" but DLE has historically told everyone to ONLY use LiPo packs with a regulator.
There is also a sweet spot for ignition voltages. As you increase the voltage the duration...
You'll blow the ignition with unregulated LiPo's as the voltage is too high.
Use LiFe packs instead, which require no regulation @ 6.6v
Also you'll want hefty electronics packs. I use 4200mAh...
A "gaggle" of Giant Big Stiks... click for larger image.
Here is a MUCH easier solution.
I have used dozens of these, and I have used them with the EXI servos ( aka Hextronics, TowerPro, etc... ) with no problems nor drift.

It is also illegal in other states. Colorado and a few others now have laws on the books, while many other states are also drafting legislation.
That also violates AMA rules and therefore new FAA...
Are you trying to find out what you are getting in Realflight?
If so FPS is in the navguide.
Edit the displayed widget list via the menu to include the FPS readout.
Then go back to the sim...
70oz servos for all surfaces and 80oz or so for the rudder is MORE than sufficient on this plane.
I've flown mine with inexpensive digital 133oz servos since the plane came out last year ( or was...
Jester has quite extensive experience.
He may not have your particular plane, but he is experienced with using MUCH BETTER hardware than what you are employing.
His point is valid and is...
Who makes the receivers?
If you can find a transmitter with the same frequency the receivers use and the SAME "SHIFT" pattern, you may be able to use them.
That said, the hobby has moved onto...
Glow silicon lines seem to hold up fine.
The problem is with glow fuel corroding the metal fittings, brass, etc. over time. Enough builds up to obstruct or clog lines.
That said, it does take a...
I haven't done it on the smaller Stiks such as yours.
However on the larger Stiks, I find that setting the inner "flaps" as secondary ailerons works best.
Then if you use an 8 channel TX and...
You should seriously consider increasing the capacity of the flight pack.
At worst put in two 6V 2500 NiMH packs and connect them in parallel to give you an effective 5000mA 6v pack.
What engine mounts are you going to use? The ones that came with the plane?
Yes you can do as you said to hold the weights on. Remember though that lead is pretty soft, so you may want to provide...
