Too easy!



5 1/2 hours of driving, $27 in gas, $6 in tunnel tolls, home safe and sound. Time to get parts on order!

Maidened mine today! AWESOME!!!! It's amazing how well it handles the breeze compared to the smaller planes. All it needed was two clicks of left rudder trim, and one click of left aileron. CG was spot-on for my preference. Can't wait to get it in the air again with some proper servo arms!!!

And with a few clicks my Motrolfly 4325-280 is on the way.

Anyone know of a good place for JR style servo extensions? Prices seem very high everywhere I check.

Also will the included aluminum arm that comes with the 7954SH be long enough for my aileron installation or do I need to order up 3 1.5"ers?

All that is really left to get is the Ice 100, a voltage regulator, and an arming plug.

MPI Maxx heavy duty twisted are what I like for extensions

And you need about 1.25" arms, BEC Pro, and ArmSafe

The included composite arms are the ones you want. Use the the longest single arm for the ailerons. Use the longest double sided arm with one side cut off for elevator and the longest double sided arm for rudder.

If you are talking about a rx battery then that should get you five or six twelve minute flights.
