Default V.Q.A-26 Invader

Here's some pics of my V.Q.Invader. It's powered by Magnum .52's and uses mechanical retracts with V.Q. Oleo Struts.

Hobby People has one that has a 90" wingspan and will fly nice with those 52s. You should check it out. I have their P-61 80" and it is really fast with those 52s.

Hey Cobi, No I have not flown it yet.as I have'nt found the right props to use yet. The props on it now are 11-7 master airscrew 3-blades. I've tried the 10-7 M.A. 3-blade but they seem to be weak at the hub and the tips go in and out of arc.
Next I'm going to try Graupner 10-7 3-blades. If don't do I'll be flying it with APC 11-6,7 or 8's.
As for the Qaulity/construction, It seems to be pretty solid and go's together quick (With the exception of my retract installation,sa it calls for pneumatics and I went with mechanicals,so I had to dosome mods.) I hope to fly it soon...!

I have been at your site many times in the last month or so and can't even find a VQ A-26, much less the conversion kits you are talking about.

Has anyone done the Wing Mfg version.  I think it is very close to the same size as the VQ but much more standoff scale.
