    Not sure I agree with idea of retracting flaps on landing.
    Fully deployed flaps will cause drag, reducing airspeed, not adding lift. If you're getting lift with flaps, your deflection is not far...

    Hi Sparky,
    Regular epoxy is not good enough to hold that cowl with the high vibration surrounding. I doubt that silicone will be better by much.
    The best glue I used with no failure yet is Hysol...

    Topflite GS 60cc Zero

    Anyone got his hands on this new bird yet? Just wondering cowl size, whether one can stuff a DLE 85cc up front to swing a scale 3bld prop and power to spare for buzzing runways !!

    How about DLE 85cc option? Good power and affordable.
    But your quadra 75cc should be ok for scale flying. But I agree that 3 blade is too much prop for that motor if getting only 5500,
