He had a lot of good things to say about it.

I read his piece. Seems this plane has been around since 2006. You would think more would have written about it by now. It should make a good practice /competition plane until I can afford a Vanquish or similar.

My Evolution has arrived, so far appears to be undamaged. If it is ok, it will be in the air in a few weeks.

What do you think of the wing tube?

Looks like carbon fiber. My gut tells me it should be a foot longer. While I'm in the wing, I may modify it for a longer tube, if I can find one. The shear webs are oriented wrong. I'm betting all wings were made wrong. I will not try hard G maneuvers or aggressive sport flying with this plane. I will use the landing gear, but add a carbon fiber tube within the provided one. I will use a spring type tail wheel. My canopy is cracked...I'll e-mail General Hobbies tomorrow. The rest of the plane is fine, and I am impressed with the covering job. It is tight with no wrinkles or loose areas.

Q: Does the cowl butt up against the firewall or does it slip over the fuselage a bit?

It fits over the firewall to the second bulkhead. It's very tight and may require some grinding on the bulkheads but it does fit. Mine looks pretty good.

Da Big_G,
The Center Of Gravity is mentioned ion the PDF manual on page 29:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...41&postcount=6

It is 200 mm (7.874 inch) from leading edge (where fuselage and wing meet I suppose).
