    I bought a 6" 1/16 drill bit from Lowes or Home Depot (I forget which one). My LHS also has them at a little higher price.

    I was losing hatch bolts on mine, as well. My "fix" was to put small "O" rings on, sort of a soft washer, that kept them from vibrating out. The nylon screw is a good fix, but I like using a bolt...

    That's about the thickness of the wing tube on my Seagull YAK 54 powered by a 20cc gasser. No wing failures on my planes (2 of them). Maybe something more than the wing tube thickness involved?

    I have seen this plane flying very well with the DLE 20. I used a Zenoah G20 on mine, and it produces about the same power as my DLE 20 turning a 17X6 Xoar. I found the kit hardware to be of good...

    The lawn mower gas caps have a concave shape on top which makes it near impossible to get a good seal around the pump fitting. A cap for a weed trimmer is much better, as it is slightly convex and...

    I use 17X6 or 17X8N. Regular 17X8 works, but the plane is more difficult to slow down. 16X8 is fast with not as much "pull".

    Night Scream

    Back to basics: 12-15cm is not 1/2 inch. You are reading cm (centimeter) as mm (millimeter). 12-15 mm is about 1/2 inch. cm is about 10 times more.

    20cc = 1.22 ci. My .91 Magnum 2 stroke turns a 15X6 prop at around 8600 rpm. My 20cc DLE turns a 17X6 at around 8500 rpm, as does my Zenoah G20. These are static rpm, don't know what the unloaded...

    I wouldn't fly without the struts. The roll rate is gentle with that big wing, but snap rolls are surprisingly quick. The struts on mine look good and function well.
