BJ recommends 200mm back from the wing root leading edge. I prefer more forward than that - 180 to 190mm. The airplane is more stable with this CG location. The vertical lines and KE trim are not...

I have run this motor a lot in both an Acuracy and a Citrin. Hacker says it is similar in performance to a C50-13XL. I can confirm that.

Like the 13XL, the motor is really best with 20" props,...

Robert,

Please provide a reference distance from the glow plug to some point on the Hatori 650 (screw, high point, or preferably the distance to the reflector)

Thanks,

F3A Fuselage Size/Shape Comparison

I thought this might be of interest to the pattern community. Some quick tracing of available (on the Net) drawings and photos using Powerpoint. The Acuracy (mono), Episode and Proteus were traced...

RE: BJCraft Episode

I use up aileron for landing on my biplanes. With the extra wing area of the bipe there is sometimes a need to kill lift absent a head wind. Also, the effective washout is very helpful in gusty...

RE: New OXAI CITRIN by Wolfgang and Roland Matt

It is mounted on the bottom of the fuse, below spinner. No airflow. I have found the Spin ESC does not get overheated no matter where it is placed relative to air flow.

RE: New OXAI CITRIN by Wolfgang and Roland Matt
