Hey Marc,

Jaro Muller has been leaving the box on his designs for a long time.

Bob,

Great Looking Plane will be interested to hear about initial flight reports.


See Ya,


Pat

Might be kinda expensive. The Samba website says it has RDS and comes with 4 MKS servos preinstalled and sealed in the wing along with the wiring harness. It must be a quick build. Looks like a beautiful plane.

Thats what I figured...
On expense, you have to figure in the cost of servos, and if those are the servos you were going to choose anyway, then its all good.....

I'm more hip to have the sealed wing on an F3J/TD wing than on the F3B wing where you can't swap planes mid round on a 3 task round....
Sounds like a really drag free plane.

No.
RDS will make the wing heavier and the drag part is not an issue in F3J / TD

Ronald - You are right, I was looking at the Precision. Despite Jojo's comments I think it would be beneficial to have RDS on any F3J plane. It is cleaner and brings mass inboard from the wing tips. If all the DLG guys use it, there must be something good about it.

Majority does not want it in F3J.
And they will have to be with servo covers for me

How not to land F3J w/slowmo (0 min 50 sec)

(Although all servos were fine in this landing and I flew it after lunch)
