Ya I wish there was more space inside the fuse, I would mount a separate servo for the tailwheel and run it on its own channel...

I think it is a geometry issue. I will one of these days fix my gear forward to see if that helps. I currently finished most of my projects.

It helps a lot. I added some fairly thick plastic prop centering rings/adapters on the inside of the landing gear mounts, and now they are parallel and I regularly/usually manage to land without wing tip scraping .

I had crashed mine really hard this spring, and thought it was not recoverable. I even went as far as to remove the servos from the (broken) wings, and used them elsewhere. I recently revisited the wreckage, and have fixed it. I should maiden (re-maiden?) by next weekend. I may do a repaint also, just to have something different. I miss this speed demon. -------Metalguy

Go for it Metal. I went to fly mine this morning after a few months break and when I got to the field I realized I had taken the BEC out to put in another plane. Oh well. She does fly different from all the others.

I hate it when I do stuff like that! I let a friend borrow a "y" harness out of my Spitty, and forgot to get it back. No flying for it that day either! ----Metalguy

Out of curiosity, how do you connect the BEC so that its removable?

I always use JRT plugs on the Bec's power side. That way I can move them around or take them off if I sell the plane. So you need to buy JRT plugs to solder into your ESC. I actually crimp mine as I use Anderson power poles.

Never thought of making the BEC removable. I just solder them in place. -----Metalguy

Well, I think she is ready for a re-maiden now. I replaced all the servos I stole out of it for other projects after I thought I wasn't going to fix it, and made new linkages, as well. I had to piece in some Vampire parts to fill in where some foam was lost, so its not pretty any more, but should fly just fine. Besides, once in the air, it should look fine! ------Metalguy

I got in some flying in the wet November weather yesterday, between cloudburst, and against the grey sky, this camo really works! This plane is awesome to see fly. It can slow right down, and just seem to hang there, or clean up the flaps, and be off to the races! I have my ailerons turned way up on the throws, and she performs pretty well! ----Metalguy

hey metalguy, i agree this plane looks awesome, I've had onlookers compliment me on it... that's when i explain it was a kit and not my modeling skills ... but nonetheless it is a beautiful sight. great to hear about the flight, mine should be up soon but end of year exams have put mine in the hanger for now.

Flew mine yesterday and had a blast--litterally. Dropped the Adam Bomb from different altitudes, but 50' seem the most accurate. The Adam Bombs are in stock at DymondUSA https://dymondusa.com/ in case you need to get one for yourself and turn this plane into a D-5 model. Super easy if you have a computer radio that sets end point adjustment and with a standard 6 channel you can have so much more fun with this model. Check my blog for directions in mounting.
