Will you sell me a pair of the metal thumb screws?

metal socket head bolts are all mine had, no thumb screws. I think they are M6 or M5.

Check Trimcraft Aviation RC. Excellent prices in small quantities and they will get what you need if it's not a stock item.

I've got some extra metal 4-40 wing bolts with a plastic Cap, That I use on my Osiris, sure makes taking out and putting in the wing bolts a piece of cake. I got the plastic Caps from a local shop. If you are interested, PM me your address and I'll put a couple of them in the mail for you.

Sorry, playing catch up in this thread. I originally ran a 16x12 using a A50-16S on 6S. I changed to a 17x10. It gives me more consistent speed and controls braking on downlines better. I mostly use mine for a practice pattern plane.

Yeah, I have used a 17x10 for the past year. After 95 flights on my Osiris, I want to make it a little faster and get crazy.

I am either going to get a 2M Osiris or a 2M Vanquish this fall, so I will have to let my Osiris go if I don't shred it to pieces first.

Pro-Bro Andy's 6S Neu powered Osiris is my inspiration, but I won't get that juice with this motor.

Hopefully jumping from Zippy 25C to Sky 40C and a 17x10 to a 16x12 will make a noticeable difference.

I'm using Turnigy 6S 40-50C 5,000 mAh packs in mine. Same packs I use in my Trex 550FBL. The 16x12 will be plenty fast. I rarely use full throttle except for up lines. It scoots along at a good clip even at throttle with that prop.

The weather was perfect tonight! 85 deg and 3-5mph winds right down the runway.
I got two really good trim flights and I feel like I have the dual elevators sorted pretty well.

Here's something though, it seems I have a slight right roll with sudden ele inputs. Anyone else? Secondly, I am not entirely sure my rudder is in trim... any tips there would be great.

I love this plane!!

You may want to double check the size...but I believe it could be these.....they are the same bolts used in the 5x" airframes as wing bolts......
