Can you let me know what they are & where I could order them please?

Cheers!
The spinner and prop are from Zinger, give them a call to place a order.

they were really nice to deal with. The only complaint I have is the spinner is a little small for the cowl but it still looks cool! I havent painted the props yet but they will be black with yellow tips when I get done.

I was convinced the original H9 stickers were the same & I spent about 15 minutes trying to peel off a 'top protective layer'

Thanks for the info re the prop & spinner.

That will look fantastic painted up.

Have a look at your servo horns. Are you at the recommended distance from centre?

Hey Mash. Like your vinyls. They ARE still on an adhesive sheet, yes?
Did you do anything to beef up the tailwheel Gav ?

I fitted a Dubro .60 tailwheel bracket. Not sure if that would help. ?

Once the gear doors are glued on, it's pretty much a done deal

I'll check the distance on my servo horns. I just put the pushrod on a hole that best lined up.

I just checked the distance from the servo centre to the hole in the servo arm.

15mm as per the manual.

I got lucky !

I cut one my first stickers out and put it in a dish of water, thinking they were water slide!

Sometimes you just gotta fluke stuff!

Tail wheel is standard at the moment. But I have had to adjust it and retighten it several times as it tends to twist out of alignment when I do something stupid like push the plane backwards.

Oh, and I deliberately left off the wheel hatches because I was also concerned about access....

Do you have a pic of the tail bracket handy?

I'll take a pic when I get home tonight. It certainly adds strength to the wobbly wire wheel.

I have glued my wheel hatches. I may attempt to drill a couple of holes straight up through the port side one so I can get a socket driver in there if ever I need to.

Yes, my stickers almost went in a dish of water too !

My next job is the elevator pushrods.

That will be fun bending them to line up with the 2 push rod tubes.

I have a wire bending jig around here somewhere !

Hey Gav,

Should give you an idea. It's a Du-Bro .60 Tailwheel Bracket.

I picked one up on Ebay for a couple of dollars.

Sorry for the lousy pic.
