Man that plane is awesome! Just rock solid in everything it does. If anyone is looking for a couple 30cc planes, I think another 50cc might be a good Christmas present to me

There is a reason why many people say it's the best 50cc 3D airframe out there.

On a Scott Stoops related note...I got lots of work done on my 103 this weekend!

hmmm..... servos mounted throughout the whole 104 (sans throttle and bastard screws in the elevators )

I will never complain about getting elevator servos installed on a 50cc again... go them to drop in real pretty on the 104..... morning trip to Harbor Freight to get a phillips head precision driver that can reach down in there

I may beat the snow for completion

Why on Earth are you using the stock phillips servo screws?

http://www.microfasteners.com/catalo...ategory=SHWHMS

2.0mm socket head...you don't have for apply ANY downward force

and since I'm on the topic:

http://www.microfasteners.com/catalo...ubCategory=SCM

Use these instead of the phillips screw that holds the servo arm on...same 2.0mm socket....no stripping, no downward force.

I use them because they work?

Those are nice suggestions though.. I have never had a problem with the force part on the standard Phillips head screw part... I have stripped one or two in the past but throw them out

Probably need just as long of a driver to get in there as I would for the Phillips unless you think i would be using a ratchet set with extensions

Looks great Josh, and Moose! Nice work. I haven't been out flying much, too much stuff at the house to do. Have been getting some sim time though during the rain. : )


I decided to part with the Osiris ...if any of you want it let me know.

I will put that right with replacing all my Deans connectors with PowerPoles...

That is another one Moose marked off his RC Bucket List
