And this is the style I like.
Since motor is so far back I needed one with external collet.

Plane is really pleasure to fly.
I like anything fast, but this thing is on rails.
And my setup is at its limit. I fried one striker motor already, when I over propped it.
Max is 7x6 skinny. With good 90c battery its fast. I wish I had gas 7x6.
Was faster against my buddies CW with same setup except standard apc 7x6

I am finally finishing my CW... it has been sitting for 1 1/2 years... gads!!
So, the ailerons do not move the same amount on each side. Anyone else with this problem?
Thanks!

Adjust the little plastic doohickey (Linkage point) up or down on the aileron torque control rods until you get equal throws.

Thanks! Got them setup... unfortunately my maiden did not end well. I don't know what happened, I was trimming her out, it was flying great too! Then I hit the rudder trim button one click...., turned to come back toward our field and it seemed to loose all control. Went straight into the ground.

Here are some before and after pictures! Ugh.... I HAVE to fix it and get it flying again!!

Really liked mine with Rimfire .15 and 4s lipo, very fast, too fast. Great Planes needs to revive this one but lose the heavy fiberglass fuselage, wing loading is just too high. It would be a rocket with the Rimfire .10 or .15.

Any available spinner /prop adapters that don't drag on the motor screws? I have given up my search

I use a tiny amount of crumpled paper inserted into the adapter to keep it just a bit above the screw heads...
