Default RE: ACE R/C 4-40

Hi cagrant, Noticed your request for building instructions for the Ace 4-60 biplane. I'm in the same boat, have the kit, but not the instructions. I think I could build it, but a little help with the wing(s) mounting could be helpful. Did you have any lucK? If so, could you possibly help me out with a copy. I would gladly pay for all expenses )plus a bit more!!)

Cheers, from Down Under, Ian.

I have had some luck! I should be getting a copy any day. I will be happy to help as soon as I receive the manual. My email is [email protected]. Send me your address and I will send it. It cost me $10 and I'm not sure of the quality yet. I'll send it and trust you will take care of me however you see fit. I might try to scan and maybe email as well. Lots of guys have the book only one was good enough to answer my request.



Take care!

I just finished my first kit ever. I saw this thread and thought it would be the right place to post some pics.

hey any activity on the 4-40 or 4-60? Can anyone tell me the control throws on the 6-60 and I read earlier that the cg on it was at the main spar and I assume they were refering to the top wing main spar. Thanks for any help anxious to get this bird in the air.

Thanks,
Jim

Nice Shep, what's the wing span on your build?

Nice Job Shepard 62 I bet you are proud . That's a nice colour combination . Good luck with your maiden .. Maybe you should let a trusted instructor take it up and trim it for you for its first flight .. Sometimes we get a little excited and shaky .. Or at least have somebody stand beside you ..
