    BTW, how have you found the CoG on these PNP models? I must admit that the Stearman appeals to me. But NOPE. No free shipping to Japan (from Hong Kong). It would cost an additional $123 to have...

    The OP had listed a number of foamies in the $140-200 range and that he had maxed out the 10 plane memories on his Tx. So 10 x 200 = $1,000.

    Personally, I don't see why anyone needs (or wants)...

    That's probably true. But then what's wrong with being lazy? :D

    My own perspective on foamies and ARF is this: I only have a limited amount of money to spend on my scale RC modeling. Every...

    Here's a video I shot of a friend's foamie FMS Bf-109 (with sound module). It is indeed a nifty looking little model. But it wasn't cheap.

    You might find more kindred spirits on another one of the RCU forums. In general ARFs are already a dirty word around here and foamie ARFs doubly so. :p But you're right that the better ones look...

    Trex, are you aware of any detailed drawings of the Nakajima Type 91? I would like to find some good technical drawings (not model plans) similar to the drawings in the old Maru Mechanic magazines.

    Thanks, Ken. I did make a quickie stand for the Snipe, though I'm not sure why I didn't put it under the tail skid. I must have had a reason. The second photo was my attempt to recreate the view...

    The fact that there are 5 "cables" on each side to be attached at the field is starting to dawn on me. The only non-scale attachment point is on the cabane struts (for the four landing wires). BTW,...
