    I agree...if you have $250 to spend go with the Eflites and Robart struts. If you only have $50 to spend go with the HKs.

    The Hobby King struts will take a 3" wheel which will work great on pavement and OK on grass.

    The stock retracts will "barely" work. Eventually, the plastic internals will wear/fail. You don't need to spend big bucks for Robarts though. These cheapo's from Hobby King will work just fine:...

    I wish all my landings were that good. Today I bounced the landing and knocked the left gear out....again.

    The mind set of the stereotypical "FAA man" is that they are the unquestioned authority, not to be disputed...no matter how flakey or mis-informed they may really be. It's not hard for me to believe...

    Latex won't stick to plastic. But, if you use a good plastic primer the latex will stick to that. I recently painted a plastic "tupperware-like" bowl using Fusion as the primer coat and latex on...

    I haven't tried it on Monokote, but Krylon Fusion sticks to other plastics very well.

    Not true. Part 91 does not apply to ultralight operations. Only Part 103 governs UL. One reason that Part 91 doesn't apply is that ULs by definition are not airplanes....they are vehicles.

    At the 24 second point the nose wheel was about 6" left of the center line. At that point I'm sure he knew the plane was yawing left...but this isn't something he hasn't dealt with before. There...

    That's the point...who determines what is "reasonably safe"? Obviously, the WOD guys thought that they were reasonably safe...but apparently lots of others think different. Are we (who ever that...

    I find it interesting that Jesus Christ has come back and now flys RC. That's the only explanation I could come up with to explain all the comments from guys who are "perfect".
