Mine should be on my doorstep after work, I will chime in tonight with some quality answers and 28mm fits. Maybe some pics of the inside of fuse.

What do you mean REASONABLE USE ,We are going to fly these things and I or WE intend to have the Throttle at full as long and as much as possible ,That's why you guys named it RIFLE.

Mine arrived at the LHS yesterday... just got back into town tonight. I'll pick it up tomorrow (Friday). BUT... it's going to have to wait while I maiden my 12s Great Planes Revolver:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1198586

Hoping for around 150mph on that one... we'll see. I'm going to try a Mega 16-15-3 in the rifle... salvaged from my crashed Sokol.

I received my Rifle today and just had to peek into the box and sniff around. I like the way they packed it up in a custom little box lined with foam. The major components are all lying in little cutout compartments when you open the box.

It is a smaller sized air frame for sure. Nice, bright colors and the glass work looks good. Included aluminum spinner is a nice little touch too. I'll be building her through the weekend. Great Mothers Day gift if I can get it done in time?

In one of the pics you said:
"If your servos are any bigger than a HS45-55, you will be needing to cut the wood servo mounts. I test fitted a 65MG and it was rather large"
Why wouldn't it fit? The hs-65 is the same length as the 45, and the same width as the 55. Thanks for all the pictures!

I thought the 45's and 55's were a bit narrower. Didn't test fit because I don't have any around. Either way you can make anyone of them fit with a dremel.

Whoa! I like this a lot I have a Scorpion 2215-1860kv that needs a new home. The Graupner 6x6 works pretty well on 3s and should move me around 90 mph-ish.

I like the new ST Gliders from Tower, too. Man I need to find a lotta more money this month
