I pulled the trigger and ordered a SSS this morning. I hope to have it ready to fly on our Jan 1st New Years Day fun fly. I would normally wait till the plane arrives and measure things myself, but to be ready for Jan 1st I need to get stuff ordered. I want to get a bunch of CF rods ordered to reinforce the fuse, stabs etc.
What's the diameter of the spar tube?
What's the thickness of the horizontal and vertical stab?
The stock motor position can only fit a 9" prop without modification. Getting a motor that has a 10mm longer bell can bring it out enough to throw on a 10" prop
The Spar is 0.5" it can be replaced by a carbon one from Goodwinds.com and get much more strength. Here is the Carbon Rod Specs
Part--------Diameter-length- ID------OD mm---------Weight----Price
020034 .5000" 60" 0.400" 12.70mm 110 gm $19.99
I dont have my plane in front of me, but 2mm carbon would work great in the stabs. or getting flat carbon that is .5mm x 2mm would be lighter and easier to place in the wings.
