was mainly worried about landing on the 100ft. pad.
on the videos ive seen, looks like she comes in kinda hot. but i found out on my planes sometimes thats because they are nose heavy. didnt know if that was the issue on the Osiris.

100feet and concrete may be too short, but if your used to it maybe not

20+ flights now. I noticed that the roots of the wings are not being held as tight against the fuse as before. They're flush at the front of the wing, but there's a 1/8" or so gap at the rear on both sides. Perhaps the little tab for the screw that secures the wing is wearing a bit. Or is something else going on?

I love landing this plane.

Edit: Here's a picture. The hole in the tab is indeed eroding. I put some epoxy, but why is this happening, I wonder?

I seem to have killed this thread

I have maybe 100 flights on mine, and the wings are as tight against the fuselage as new. I don't have any erosion of the tabs either.

Do you tighten the screw down with the washer under the head? The compression from the screw on the tab holds my wings in place.

No, I haven't been using a washer. I'll start doing that. I take the wings off between every session (3-4 flights) since it doesn't fit in my car otherwise.

CA the washer to the screw. Tighten the screw down on the tab with the wing tight against the fuse, every time you put the wings on. That is how it is supposed to work. The tab is slotted to allow the wing to be positioned correctly. The screw shouldn't be at the end of the slot.

The wings on mine are still tight as ever, but I haven't taken them off since the day I first put it together.

I think this is already put together? I would just go over it and make sure things didn't come loose during shipping. Make sure the pull pull is taut but not too tight etc. Maybe download the manual and just go over it so you understand how it's put together.

You will love this plane!

I hang ll my planes by the LG. Either a picture hook for the tailwheel, or a string that loops around the main LG.

String around the landing gear works great, cheap and easy
