Do you guys know anyone that has a left wing willing to sell?

Google what type you are looking for (hex, cap, socket), and then find a place that sells them and contact them. Or.... I know "The Olander Company" would more than likely have them, and I am sure they would ship them quickly.

I checked them out already and their facility is only 12 minutes away but of course not available in store but you know GC I didn't call them. Let me call them considering website inventory is never accurate.



@ Steve I did google it thats how I found fastenal which seem to have a large inventory. I will see who else I can find.. Thanks !



Update: Thanks Guys !! I just called Fastenal and they dont' have it in their lawrenceville store but will get it for me by tomorrow. That should work out.

Thanks!

FINALLY !! I have the motrofly mounted. I had to add a few washers to get a good gap but all is well. Now time to button her up and get her ready to maiden with the new motor.

I guess I will fly her when I head out to Triple Tree for my first time this weekend for the frosty dog fly in.

Mc Master Carr is a good source as well.

Hope to see you at Nall this year, Mark.

Hey Noll -

Good to hear from you.. I hope all is well. Yes they were my first stop. I always have receive great service from them but Mc Master didn't go past 60MM on the M4s. I got them from Fastenal down here. Fortunately the guy had 80mm in the store.

It seems that since I am so close I have no reason not to make it to Joe Nall.. Even if it is for the day. But from what I keep hearing camping there isn't like camping since the grounds are incredible.. So yes I will be there and will see the 3dhs crew.

Thanks Manta...Yup @ Triple Tree and from what I hear its the best place ever.. So looking forward to Saturday and all future events there..

Thanks this will be like my 3rd motrofly setup and I am loving them. Hopefully now she will balance without shoving the packs all they way to the front.

I bet that was fun...and yes, the Extra is a very nice plane. I can't wait to try mine out now that I have put the Hacker A60-5S in it....I had a Hacker A50-12L in it originally, and it was good, but got hot...This is the same kind of motor I have in my 74" Extra, and it rocks it, so possibly even better in this plane...

yeah, I have felt some heat coming from the A5012L, but after nearly 2 years of beating on it relentlessly, I still get comments about how "that plane is fast." as long as it runs I'm happy.

Thanks Pal.. I had the Hacker A50-12L in there an wasn't impressed by the power. On top of my tail heavy issue

I know you had the Hacker in there as well and yours flew great with it.

IRG recommeded I go with the Motrofly for the 72 specifically the 5320 so that is why I swapped. Vs adding dead weight to help her balance I added some weight that counts.

I will let you guys know how it went. I have to finish buttoning her up today and will be good to go.
