I'll be lurking on this one as the spaghetti weak struts are my main complaint with Dynam. Bent struts on "good" landings is absurd and I'd like to fix these right from the beginning.

Well the 3.5mm legs are fine on the stock battery and seem to take even a bad landing quite well. It's just as I mentioned with my battery mod for a much larger and heavier battery the legs bent a bit over a number of landings. They were a bugger to bend back into shape.
I repeat using the stock battery the LG would be fine.

Also, keep in mind that the stock wheels are not the best for absorbing landing impacts. Even though they are foam, they are rather thin and hard. In addition to the oleo's, I plan on changing out the wheels to something softer. Some Dubro diamond lites or super lites perform well and look good, as well IMO.

I'm going with a modified compartment and heavier battery. Both of the Dynam's I've had, the struts bent if you sneezed on them. Very frustrating.

Thanks! This bird is a lot of fun, truly unique and has quite a presence. Excellent slow flight and highly aerobatic and spirited when firewalled.

Thanks Kman!

How much time are you people getting out of the 2200mAH battery? I know with the 2800mAH I wasn't getting quite 4 minutes.
Nice flying there but it would chew though the battery fast.

Eggsplurt.....try this bird with the landing gear and a servo reverser for the flaps first. I fly from grass only.....full elevator up for all ground maneuvers.....no issues. The wheels are exactly the same from the Dynam Waco and GeeBee.....large enough for even taller grasses.

This aircraft handles slow flight with flaps deployed with ease.

I have considered updating mine with counter rotating props.....but for now I am enjoying crabbing from take off. So just be ready for the typical yaw left at take off and apply right rudder as needed. The big wing span and strong motors provide ample lift and thrust to get out of any trouble.

I added LED's and placed my receivers in the cockpit....left my ESC's in the original stock fuselage cavity.....two coats of high gloss Minwax finish for a nice wet look all the time.

I and others on this thread have modified the battery cavity entry to handle larger batteries - I fly with GForce 4s 30c 3300mAh 320grams LiPo for better wind penetration and a little steadier flight behaviors (not quite as floaty). However a heavier plane often requires higher landing speeds.....even with flaps engaged. I'll use 4s 30c 2600 mAh LiPo on a calm day.

This is an excellent flying aircraft and seldom seen at any R/C field....easy to track during flight...and ya......it's over powered.....possible to do mathematically impossible aerobatics in flight if you dare

Your BF-110 looks great with those lights, TwistedGrin, nice job.

I've flown a customer's BF-110 on an Admiral 4s 4000mAh 40c. Five seconds with an X-acto knife to cut the corner of the plastic bulkhead in the nose, and the battery slid right in. A snug, perfect fit. No other mods were done. Flew great, unique profile in the air, climbed a little at full throttle, very stable inverted, soft and slow landing even without flaps, no tendency to noseover, easy taxi will full up elevator.
