I love my old-school GWS Formosa. I bought it cheap a year ago, guess the hobby shop was getting rid of them!

I set it up as per the manual, but with a new lower floor in the cockpit to fit a 1500mah lipo. I'm using a 50 gram brushless spinning a 9x6 prop.

I really hated the aileron torque rods and the rudder/elevator pushrods. After a crash, I removed the cockpit floor to put the battery directly on the wing, put aileron servos in the wings, and two servos in the tail. Now the control surfaces are really tight, and she flies great.

She looks like hell though, the cowling has more tape than plastic, and the canopy blew off and has been replaced with a plastic sheet held on with magnets. I'm looking forward to getting one in the EPO version!
