After seeing all your approaches to the build, I want to sell mine and build another. In fact, that's what I'm gonna do!
Great stuff Hannes.

The Moki will be so sweet in this model.
Has this model been powered by electric motor?

Hi,
I was wondering if you made one with an electric motor (battery, ESC, motor) instead of using an internal combustion engine.

Had one of these almost 20 years ago lots of fun.

Do you do the modification to the horizontal stab to make it plug in. Or are they all that way now?

Interested in your 50% version when it comes out.

Regards,

Very nice!
It appears the entire firewall forward assemble bolts to the front of the fuselage with six screws. Is that all that holds the engine on?
I'd say that CARF does the first 90% of the work, and you do the other 90% of the work to finish it!

The Center of Gravity seems so far forward. What is it? 20% of MAC?
The workmanship and engineering is wonderful.
