New 9 MM Depron Fusalages!

I dumbthumbed my 40inch 300 Extra last weekend and totalled the Fuselage. Called Mike yesterday to order a new fuse kit. Mike mentioned that he is looking at moving up to a 9mm Depron fuse as well. Cost increase will be minimal. I should have my new 9mm fuse in a few days! Can't wait to check it out.

God! I wish I could fly as well as my Foamie is capable of!

Is extra bracing required for the 9mm planes?

I downloaded the Gabriel Altuz DWF WonderJuka video from Vimeo and watched it like ten times. It's a serious clinic! Thanks!

One question, did you get Gabby to autograph the wing?

No, I should have done that. He really like this plane, when I flew it he'd sneak up behind me and watch and of course I handed the TX right over.

Mikey, that's the subsonic motor discussed a few pages back. Kind of a weird motor. Really good power, horrible noise, something was definitely not right with it, yet it held up a few months. It did however seize up a few flights after that one. The thing had a personality rowdy and rough!

If you listen close you can hear it grinding lol.

Battery is a Gens-ACe 25C 1000mah.
