    Very classy looking Phaeton! Nice workmanship. I've never built a BUSA kit but I'm considering the Phaeton II. What are you using for power?

    No hardfast rules on wheelsize aggieman. If you use larger than recommended main wheels, just try to find the lightest ones you can. As far as the TW goes, the Sullivan bracket for 2-6lb planes...

    Hi aggieman, I actually balanced my Mid-Star by putting the battery just aft of the servos. ( I could do this because I made an access hatch with the fuse cut-out hole on the bottom side just behind...

    Got a Saito 56 in my Mid-Star 40 and I feel it's perfect power. It's definitely not under-powered and will fly through loops as large as I want to make them!

    One idea Brian would be to trace the root rib pattern onto 1/8 sheet balsa and cut out two new ribs. Glue one to each root rib of your wing panels. These will add thickness to your root ribs that...

    RE: Another Mid Star 40

    Hi Alex,
    A plastic hinge epoxied in place should be fine, just don't be tempted to omit this hinge point. This hinge absorbs much of the rudder servo load due to the close proximity to the...

    RE: 1 st bipe.

    Have a Hog-Bipe with an OS 70. Fantastic combination with scale-like flying qualities when powered with a 70. Just my 2-cents.
