    The Q40 planes have 400 square inches of wing, the Q500's have 500. The Q500's turn tighter and land slower.

    Yes wing mounted alu landing gear and slim racing wheels.

    It is going around the pylons, so landing gear is mandatory. I wouldn't want to hand launch a Q40 anyway... ;)

    Old vs new engine mounts

    Do the newer engine mounts with built in needles have the same mounting length as the older Q40 mounts?

    How fast? How fast do Q40 planes go these days? I have no idea. Should be good for 185-190 I guess.

    Front mount needles

    Hey Bob,

    Is it still possible to get carbs with a front mount needle? I have no issue with remotes, but it would be easier with front mounted needles on a twin I'm planning.

    Thanks.
