Default SHOULD I "SEAL-OFF" THE FUSELAGE?

Hi Mark,

I am not using cannister mufflers. Should cover the inlet to this area so the fuse is sealed?

Thanks!

Yes i did it just so no oil would leak into the fuse. I just used some covering on mine so it added little to no weight.

Mark,

I can't thank you enough for your help!

My next plane is going to be your 260. How does it fly compared to the 36% Katana?

Thanks again!

Well that is a very hard question to answer. The 260 is lighter than your Katana so that is a large part of it. For sequence flying I prefer the 260 as it has very little if any coupling and is lighter which means a better power to weight at my alltitude at sea leval you will have planty of power with both planes. I really like my Katana for 3D and all around fun which is why i am going to keep it together even after i finish the 260 and yak. So really if i had to pick one it would be the 260 since it will 3D and to imac like no other plane i have flown before.
