I really should have done this with my original plane, the old style 32" slick, but I just can't make myself trash that one yet.
My Crack Yak is still in great shape, and it is my go-to plane. So the Sbach will serve as backup.
Hahaha, nearly ripped the nose off my Edge this morning, may be a half a tube of Welders in the nose at this point. I'm with you, may be time for a new airframe. I like the Crack Yak WAY better than the Edge. I'll just keep flying the CY. I'll have to find out if the old power combo will work with the Crack Pitts.
