RE: Field box with battery, or individual battery powered

Alright looks like i'll get individual glow starter. I think I still have the electric starter from before, as well as a hobbico 12v battery. So i think i'll stick to that.

RE: Small kit plane

Hs 65's are nice, but that's a bit more than i'd prefer to spend on servos. I'm not looking at radios yet though. I still got a bit to worry about that.
