Other Uses for Microfan and Astro 010
I have a Microfan fitted with an Astro 010 in a Kavan Salamander belly flopper. We fly in a field best described as an urban jungle (re: weeds, rocks, re-bar, old foundations… ). Needless to say, it chews up airplanes in about 6 months . But heh, you always have a new favorite! So, once the Salamander dies, what else can I put the microfan in?
I would do a FS TA-7 Corsair, but they are out of production (anyone have one?). I am also thinking of the FS F-16. Are there any other options out there, ARF or kits?

I have an Astro/Wemo microfan setup in a Fantastic-Fan Models F-86 and in a FSK TA-7C Corsair II. Both fly very well, both are more draggy than the FSK F-16. My F-16 (not maidened yet ) has a Razor 2500/Vasa combo in her. Having built these 3 planes I'm sure the Astro/Wemo setup will make you proud.
I've heard only good on the Minx so it should be included in your consideration as well.
