Default RE: Great Planes Escapade .40 ARF

Hi Gary ! That LA 40 will be fine ! I'm flying my Escapade with a 10 yr. old OS .40FS ! More than enough power. My wing are NOT glued together and it does not seem to be a problem. I think the epoxy and glass will be overkill ! What if you need to replace a wing?
I replace the throttle wire with flexible cable. I thought the wire was to stiff. The plywood "tongues" on the Wing Leading Edges seem adequate. I Stiffened them up with some CA.
No, the Red outer Golden Rod will NOT fit inside the installed tubes, but the yellow rod Will !
