This is nice bird , do dibble horns on the elevators and make sure that the linkages are super secure donít use the stock silver ones go bolted ones the original like to open or at least shrink wrap them bubble

Just use a firefox browser download 2 extensions Adblock plus and ublock Origin (optional) and never see a YouTube ad again :)

Wish I had settings like these for my smart TVs. The commercials are horrible on YouTube.

sysiek 11-13-2020 09:06 AM

Or the owner could setup his YouTube to non commercial one public and problem solved, you will not see commercials on my YouTube channel

Canadian Man 11-14-2020 08:20 PM

Yea I was very close to ordering the Starwars Scheme! I Think that done up with the Pilot and R2D2 look great! I have also seen pics floating around of a custom painted sci-fi one a few years ago. That one looks great!

This one is the fastest radio flyer wagon at least in the rc jets category.

Wait, there were no hard points for the elevator horns?!

No Hard points for any of the surfaces. I think many have successfully installed the horns with lots of glue and it's been fine but I feel better adding the hard points.
Now I know they are secure.

If you purchase this plane from Ultimate Jet's to my knowledge they add the hard points
