RE: balancer help!

Sorry, what I meant was that I bought it from Dymond Modelsport but it has an Electrifly label on it. I am new to electric so I don't know if Dymond makes the packs or just markets them.

Thanks

RE: Building a GP 60 size J3 Cub

Moodyman,

Unless I am badly mistaken your V bracing is upside down. On every Cub I have seen the bracing starts on either side of the instrument panel and extends upward into an inverted V.

Thanks,
