RE: Tower trainer

The typical wooden spar that joins the wing halves was broken right down the middle. which is what I presume caused the crash. Also when I took the dihedral out I filled the entire crack with epoxy.

RE: I hope this will fly

Went to the field today to fly it. Never got off the ground, every time I would throttle up it would just spin in tight circles to the left. So I need to do some figuring out.

RE: I hope this will fly

Yeah I see what you are saying about the middle servo. It isn't really like that I just moved so I can slide the reciever in and out easily, normally it sits to the side like the others do.

RE: Super Tigre .40 prop nut
