Thanks!

I have a Hitec Eclipse 7 that I use as my primary radio. I inherited a Futaba FP-T6FG AM radio from my father-in-law when he passed away. I'd like to get my son flying my PT-40 instead of the...

RE: Prop for K&B 3.5 outboard

It's a fiberglass tunnel hull. I'm 99% sure it was custom built. It was a birthday present when I was like 12 years old (I'm 29 now). Never really got into it too much when I was younger. It sat...

RE: Engine CG

That's what I've done, but just trying to be as exact as I can be. Total weight for the airplane (hopefully) will be no more than 3.5 lbs. Minor shifts in CG position will add up. I suppose...
