Just about done, I just got to install the front landing gear and a few other miscellaneous things and she'll be ready.

I have the AeroSky B60 in the final stages.. Did you all permanently glue the lower wing panels in place? Where did everyone set CG? What was your total takeoff weight/ what battery and flight times? Also, I have eflite 15-25 retracts.. having trouble getting the nose steering to work right.. can anyone send pics? Thanks!

motors & landing gear

My buddy purchased one of these in kit form from Nitroplanes. He's not able to find the motors or landing gear to continue the build. Can anyone please recommend the motor size and where to purchase both the motors & gear. Thank you.

Had some excitement today, lost a motor mid flight, the motor came of the mount, and kept spinning, winding the leads and hacking a bit into the side of the cowl. I had no idea what was happening. All I could tell was that the wing dropped suddenly and I had barely any control to stop it from rolling. I managed to get it close to the short grass near our runway, and cut the power and was able to glide it down safely. So post emergency landing inspection revealed that it was the grub screws holding the motor to the mount that gave out (possibly due to vibrations?). Thank goodness I was able to get her down safely, this is one of my favorites!!! So I ordered a new motor from atomik-rc and a new speed controller just to be safe. Just a small amount of touchups and she be good as new This is my first time bringing in a twin on only one engine, was quite an experience!!

Good job - it could have been a different story had you not cut throttle :-)

Glad it worked out well. Cutting the power was the right move.
I still have to maiden my B60. really like the plane though.
