No worries ! Mine tipped the scales at 20 lbs, ready to fly, minus fuel and had an old Quadra 35. Great flying airplane, do replace the aluminum pieces on where the struts attach to the fuselage, on the struts and fuselage, use brass instead, I lost my first one on a slow and level flight but I did do a lot of maneuvers with it, it won't fly worth a hoot on one wing, you can't see when the aluminum fatigues. The G38 is perfect for it, the spark plug wire will protrude out of the bottom of the cowl, the Quadra did not. This is probably on of the best kits ever offered of the Bellanca Decathlon, I still have one in the box ready for my third Decathlon. Enjoy !!

Does anyone know if a CNC wing kit can be bought for this kit, the 1/4 scale Pilot/Ok Model/EZ Decathlon? Years and years ago there were tons of CNC cutting services available, and nowadays all I can find is foam cutters.....

Default Looking for a canopy

Does anyone know where I could get a replacement canopy? My plane has like 3 flights on it, has been show-pieced for years and has minor stress cracks on the top corners from age. Would the Great Planes version replace the Pilot version? Who would you recommend to duplicate the canopy if I sent it away?
Thanks for your time.
