I would like to still have mine. I did an E conversion to this airframe too. I used the stock colors.

I found the nose wheel retract, if the rod was pulled all the way back, as in down and locked, it would allow the nose gear leg to fold. If you set it up so the rod was not pulled all the way back, the nose gear was solid.

I too made the whole canopy come off to get to the batteries. I used a 5s 5000 battery, 60 amp ESC, Monster power 46 with a 12X6 prop. She flew very well with this setup.

Yours looks really good.

Did you have to add much to the fuse after cutting the top off?


Buzz.
