Looks like the mood is better as bumps are way smaller
Top of wing I'd clean, no sanding of bumps needed

Under wing just has small bumps, easy to sand down

Aileron basically pop with own choice servo

65mgs hitec my choice all around 6 of them

As original Ezstar and other multiplex major weak area near servo bay, needs carbon or prefer Kevlar

I will permanently connect wings to plane so no need. To look at aileron connection

Wingtip same as airfoil in original

Nose is longer

Wow wow, fuse is smooth

They copy ez
glider canopy

Interesting change the 72 antenna is different mold as not under fuse

Elevator installed in mold

Looks like enlarged rudder by 1/4

Wow wow wow. I see future of molded foam planes as ezstar2 is baby bottom smooth

Ezstar2 deserves 4 cells lipo fpv

Over 100 km in a dive with wind should work fpv with ezstar2

Clipping the ezstar2 wings

A guy recommended Desert -Aircraft engines as I want to do glow gas conversion

Have been running LP for years, even back when I was a kid. Busses here in PA even run on Natural Gas.

LP tends to freeze lock when it gets really cold, I am shocked it works well in the great white north.

Sounds good David. I think it calls for 9g servos. I have always used HXT-900 on easy stars - about $4 each. I am glad the rudder is bigger. That is a mod I always did on the old ones but they did not have ailerons either.

That is WACK - all those comments about the easy star and then you throw one in about Desert Aircraft.

DA does not make anything smaller than a 50cc engine. DLE has a 20, 30, and 35.

its ok Plow, He sent us that Pic of it in the garbage LOL He has quite a few planes to repair from over the years so he may have decided he wasn't going to rebuild that one as it was a free RTF with a Saito 100 installed on the nose, I mwas actually surprised he decided trashed it as we've put planes back together in much worse conditions than that by far So maybe he just threw it in there for the picture But i think he's done with it, It was also his favorite plane lol but we laughed it off as always LOL

Thats right Snowman you don't think I set you up for a crash So I could just forget about it do you
