What I was thinking to. This plane and my 72 extra have been my least trimmed planes to date. On the 72 I don't think I have any KE trims either.

4 more flights yesterday with the 5320 310 and 19x8. Good fit. I still think a tad tail heavy with 2 gensace 4000 all the way up. Funny I was working on some stalled flip turns(inverted to upright, upright to inverted) and a guy walks up and says is that as fast as it goes? Nope.

Red...so awesome!

I will sell this one, 4 flights, RxR or BNF if you want with a AR6200 with a used DLE 30 (new carb kit), new (4 flights) Hitec 7954's, WIKE IBEF, Fuji tank, SWB arms, 4 flights.... Why am I selling it you ask? well the 40% behind it is going to eat up all the space in the house and the wife is not happy with the new addition. I will ship greyhound also but you pay shipping costs. Prob about 75-100 bucks to ship but would prefer LPU in SE Nebraska. I would also seperate the gear also and airframe seperate if intereseted. There is some rash on the pants from long grass and some on the cowl scoop thing from vibration against the engine but other than that it is new! PM for more pics

I agree, the big ones really are super fun... (to fly anyways.... transport, pay ect... not so much) and pay no attention to the sticker on the tail , This one was too good a deal to pass on.

No kidding, usually the first question is how far away can you fly it? I can fly it until I can 't see it anymore...good enough?

haha, yeo I'm familiar with that one. I actually have been developing a routine to fly in front of first time spectators. it's meant to answer how high, how far away, and how fast in the first three minutes.

That sounds like a King50 winning routine

Maybe we should work up a FAQ sheet. Don't forget how much? Why is it so quiet. Did you build it(I get this one, most have seen these planes built from sticks back in the day). And of course..."can I fly it?"(mostly kids). I think I lose my smile at this point. Go back to the skate board park.

My all time favorite is I was flying my MUS with floats one day, over a pond. I guess this lady(errr person) didn't see me take off. She ask if it lands on the water. I hope so, I've had some flights with only a take off.

Guys, I'm thinking about getting some used Hitec 985mg servos instead of waiting another few weeks/month to save up for some new Savox 1258tg.... any opinions/advice out there?
I'm really itching to get plane finished and flying! I should have my 5320 motor from Ken by next week, and I'm ordering a ZTW 120a HV ESC.

Oh, for perspective, on my flying style for the servos, I do more high energy flying such as tumbles, spins, etc, and some basic harrier flying, but no slow rollers or super low hovers yet.

Thanks in advance!

I have those on my 70. Work fine. Just a lot slower. 2 planes I have the 1258tg/ds610 on the rudder/elevator only. And check out the Align ds610 on Ebay. $55 each, same servo.
