    It took a while, but I finally tamed this plane and it became one of my favorites. But last year, the speed controller quit and it went into the bean field. I agree with the above, it is not a...

    N410DC, I think Tower still has the US40 and 60 kits. You may want to get one while you can and save back if you can not find an ARF. These were all pretty easy to build and a self build one...

    Gray Beard, I tried everything. It was just not a reliable engine. I think Horizon got stuck with a lot of costs. I think there just was not a carb that matched the engine

    There is another thread going with a guy who scanned all the issues of RCM. So he has the articles with the US 60 and 1000 build if anyone is interested. Wish we could get Tower to rekit but guess...

    If I remember, I had an Airtronics sailplane. As mentioned above, the parts were machined and not die crunched and the kit went together soooo nice. Is my Olympic II an Airtronics? I can;t...

    A few years ago there was a tidal wave of support for Tower/Great Planes to rekit the UltraSport. After a while, they did reproduce the US 40 and 60. I know I bought a few of both. I built one and...

    Not sure why all of you need the ballast. Mine flies great......but the battery is pretty far forward. Landing with full flaps really slows it down but you have to keep the nose up. With this set...

    RE: E-flite Hawker Hurricane !!!

    Horizon just dropped the price on the DX6i which has been around a few years, so something may be in the wings. I think the Toledo Show as mentioned above is the last of the big shows for the first...

    Anyone use a Robart Cub landing gear instead of the gear that comes with the kit? Any input either way would be appreciated.
