Just checked, and the B2 stab looks identical to the B1, so u should be fine.

I did have to use a razor blade to trim up the front part of the stabilizer to fit into the fuselage but that was easily done in a couple minutes. A bit of hot glue to keep the stabilizer in place and now I'm ready to try it out.

Excellent hope it flys well.

Maybe a new SkyS would help

B1 Stab... B2 stab...???? I have NO idea what you are making reference to. That just shows you how far behind I am on the information curve. Hmmmm....

Cabin Fever!

After 2 days of heavy rain and high winds, I took my SS out this morning.

Okay, it was 33 degrees, there was a little snow coming down, and a little wind (that gusted up strongly AFTER I launched). But it was good to get out and fly, and the sliding skid thru the snow on landing was good for a laugh!

When conditions are marginal and I just HAVE to fly, I always will choose to fly the SS. It's never let me down!

AJ - Glad to hear you're well & back on the sticks. Keep 'em flyin'!

Better Than a Sim on a Snowy Day

Another snowy day, light steady north wind, so just before sunset (not that you could tell) another perfect SS flight. Kept it in <300' so it was still visible through the light snow as long as I could see the black bottom or the orange wingtips.
Good clean fun!
