I wouldn't mind having something 10mm out that you stick along a curved wing. However a strip that should be 100mm and it coming twice the size of that is a bit excessive.

Hi keenan,

The plane was packed in normal envioment in our factory, no special things like foods in the box, even the ink printed on the foam is very environmentally-friendly, it is imported from USA, and the depron foam is imported from Germany. So I think the allergic reaction was not from the plane.

Sorry about the pull pull line, it's just a sample, there will not be such problem in the completed product.

I agree with skyhawkdc, see, if the carbon was less than standard, it will be a big problem. But if they are more, you just need to cut them, very simple, right?

its ok...

I Have however had some Small Problems With Paint Chipping off of the covering but that's only Cosmetic...
i would Recommend a Larger Diameter Carbon For the Landing gear Legs as they do buckle a little too much under the Weight of my 370Mah 2s servos and Rx (minus ESC and Motor)
I will post some Pictures of my Dolphin in a minute Also i'd recommend that you add a Few more Degree's to the Differential arm (i'm Still getting more Down throw than up)

yes, it could be, if you do not mind the weight.

The landing gear on my shadow(5.1oz) is fine, a little flex, but not to much, I like it.

I flew the PENESAS-covering inside over the weekend at a small gym, It is a good flying indoor plane, very light was able to do both inside and outside loops with it, which I can not do with some of my other indoor planes, does very tight flat turns with the rudder, it has a fast aileron roll rate, is stable in the hover, done some tail touches and some high alpha knife edge , a very fun and capable indoor plane,, the only mod to the build was the landing gear was a little weak, used some of the extra carbon rod to double up the landing gear , there was interest in the plane,, I hope there will be some usa dealers for the line of planes

+1

On my Yak 55 (5.1oz) I have a little bit of flex but i don't see why it would need to be stronger.

planes are designed to be in the air not to drive on the ground (that's cars)
