Looking forward to watching the build!
Attached pictures of the Duellist I built 17 years ago (boy, that makes me feel old!)
Back then, it seemed like a REALLY fast lander. After a few years of flying P-38's, it doesn't seem that fast at all.
Note the counter-rotating props: an old O.S. 46R I don't think they make anymore.
I built the incidences to specs and it does seem to climb a little as the throttle is increased, which might argue for a nacelle incidence closer to zero. Being too lazy to make that kind of mods on an old plane, I have just mixed in a little down elevator on my throttle.
Not your first twin, is it? It was mine and scared the daylights outta me!
I think the kit says it weighs @8 lbs. When mine came out @11 and flew like a barn swallow, I thought I'd ruint it with wing loading. Turns out just about everybody's weighs 11ish lbs.
You'll like it. Very exciting plane to fly. Make sure the retracts and their attachments are strong.
Mine requires a little weight in the tail: probably an effect of long nacelles.
