It's expensive but I found one:

Anyone looking for a like-new SkyTrainer 400? My father has decided this isn't "the" plane for him and has his up for sale:

If the speaker is loud enough to be realistic, the amp board would need it's own battery.

Alright here is video of my 400! Thank you Visor, that prop is perfectly balanced I was shocked, the stock shakes the whole plane. Took this today, Finally flew my Cessna 400 corvalis again, Sorry its in widescreen.

Nice Video and flying Frontier. You sure have a nice park to fly at! All the fields around here have fences running in the middle of everything spliting up baseball/softball/soccer fields. That field is nice and wide open.

I have to agree a well balanced prop really makes a world of difference with this bird.

Foam motor mount

I tried to use Visor's idea of usinf foam between firewall and motor to help with prop vibration and crashes. Did a test and it came apart on me about 75% throttle. Used hot glue during assembly, a 11x5 MAS prop, not sure what went wrong but will reassemble and try again paying better attention. Any ideas anyone?

I used a 120w 10v low temp glue gun for assembly, on the rebuild I'll use more glue!!

I was waiting for someone to notice that.It wasn't balanced but I think the problem was I didn't have it hot glued good enough. Will do rebuild 1st thing in the morning and post results by noon.

Make sure your prop has somewhat downward thrust and a bit to the right. If not your plane will want to climb up and turn left as soon as you apply power.
