James,

my latest add was a Mini-Sound system from MrRCSound.com. This is an awesome upgrade to the bipe.

I have only had one issue, I have about 5 flights or so on "Snoopy One-One", after my final flight today I noticed the gear seemed to be loose, as it turns out there was a break in the CF fuse just forward of the gear, also the fuse was split along the top aft of the gear. I replaced the fuse with an aluminum one that I had. all my landings have been smooth and on grass. It may be that my setup is too heavy for the CF fuse. You may want to offer an aluminum fuse for heavier setups, i.e. cam's, larger lipo's, etc.

I use a 3S2P-4200, 13oz, I need the weight up front to balance mine. The only other addition is the sound system which is about 7 oz.

I also have slow stick with a fully glassed wing, same motor, lipo, it also has the CF fuse, I have too many flights on it to keep count, no fuse issues.
