    RE: TF Spitfire build

    That's a well thought built by providing access to the flap. I left mine completely closed per Top Flite building manual. However, I used fiber glass links with titanium ends to save on the weight....

    RE: TF Spitfire build

    Wedge,

    You are so lucky with your fuse, many of us experience a warping at the center of the fuse. Yours look so flat. Anyways, looking good.

    RE: Great Planes Extra 330L Build

    Once you have it in the air, you will probably find out that there is too much white. :D

    What's the scheme under the wings?

    RE: GP Extra 300S 60 Build 2013

    In my experience, pull-pull for rudder is the way to go. In regards to elevator halves using two separate channels (one master and one slave), I have found that it works best with a radio with...

    RE: need help?

    Yes, a good solid flat table is needed. That's why I built my first two planes over the dining table on the nook/kitchen area. No extra expense for that. :D:D:D

    RE: Houston, I have a problem!!!!

    Gene,

    One factor no one has addressed at this point is buoyancy. Is there a way you could test each float buoyancy without being installed in the plane?

    I would check each float with...

    I have that option. However, I want to continue learning/practicing with laminating with FG. I know the cowl will cost me much more that buying from them. But I would miss the learning experience....

    David,

    I have both kits, flat stab and airfoil stab. Do you only need the plan section of the tail?
