very nice paintjob my friend, and dont worry about the few extra grams, i outfitted mine with retracts, flaps and several cool but useless extras, and it flys even better than the stock version...again great job, love the greay-yellow paintscheme

I agree, the flaps make a big difference during the approach...and if you put retacts in it they are kind of a must in my opinion, because the ground handling of this plane is terrible (just like the real one) .
So if you plan to stay you your wheels, the landing speed has to be as low as possible. Take offs are ok, but landings are kind of tricky...due to the narrow gear the least bit of oversteering with the rudder, a little bit of crosswind or a tiny bump and your wingtips grace the ground....but its a good trainer...and this way you feel two feet taller if you touch down perfectly and roll out like a champ

I've been FPV'ing this plane with fatshark goggles, 600mw vtx and 3000mah 3s - belly lander, of course - for 1.5 yrs. With the flaps operational, pretty sweet airframe. Radian pro is my long duration plane and this is my fav for short distance park flying.

Does anyone know where I can get a prop nut for this aircraft? During a dogfight my prop assembly exploded and nothing could be found out in the corn. I got a new spinner and a few props, but I couldn't find a prop nut.
Better yet, what is the nut's thread diameter and pitch? I could get a new nut at the hardware store and find a way to mount the spinner.
Thanks in advance.
