    Dave, first flight felt a little under-powered, but still plenty. I checked the ECU and found that the engine was only reaching 130K, instead of the rated 153K. Reset the parameters and as you know,...

    Ken, I knew that you could not resist one! I guess that you will be using the stock landing gear, as it looks very nice. With my work commitments at the moment, mine should be ready in around 3 weeks.

    I started out with a P60 and mine was very nose heavy. It needed 2lbs of lead in the booms to balance. I now have a K80F@19lbs thrust and it balances perfectly without the lead. Also, everything is...

    Looking forward to delivery next week and start the assembly. Ken, it will go ballistic with a 100 in it! Still, that is what the throttle:p is for.

    Hi Dave, nothing on Model Engines web site. I am very interested in buying one of these, and was wondering if you know of anybody else selling them over here, or whether anyone has one flying yet?

    RE: SubSonex personal jet!

    They're saying 300 nmls range with reserve, so I guess it's endurance would be about 180-200 minutes. Apparently it's flying at Oshkosh today, so would be very interesting to see it fly.
