RE: Royal Kits

the original kit came with a spun aluminum cowl much like the zeke to my knowledge. So I have no idea what you refer to as the wood pile. I am pretty sure about that. Glad you at least found a glass...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

Just a reminder that the weight of the servos in the wings in total isn't the primary concern by designing the wing with one central servo. It is the moment of inertia of the servo in the tips of the...
