Since FliteStreaks came up on the Smoothie thread, (my fault) I tried to bump the old FS thread but could not. It's a good one http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1330697
We have 4 TF ARF Streaks flying in our group.
Haven't had problems with the lead outs, but there is a convenient built in hatch to keep an eye on them.
No one is using the stock tank.
The fuse is pretty fragile, but my FB has managed to keep repairing his after numerous figure 9's! I recommend, before assembly, that you trace the fuse outline on a piece of med. 1/2" balsa and put it in storage.
Destroyed mine when the engine quit straight overhead. The new fuse is an inch longer in the nose and two more in the tail. Flies about the same but now it has room for a larger tank.
The OS 25 FP/LA is really an ideal engine for this plane.
