i have a set of the sapac struts on my f-20 they are very nice but cost half the price of this kit. the alum structs that come with the kit are not the proplem ,there is a short piece of wire that connect the two ,there soft .but better to bend them than tear the gear mounts out ,it was a easy fix.i hav'nt flown yet so i fixed it before i had a proplem.

Yeah, if you read it in the review, I was equally surprised to see them bend. I'll be the first to admit it when I blow a landing but this one is SO easy to bring in all soft-like ... thus the surprise when it happened.

Thanks Jon I would greatly appreciate it.I would like to get started painting my Boomer pilot.I finished weathering my fuse and I have figured out where to put the seat to make it look right but some pics would be great.

I found a blueprint type of drawing of the seat Im going to construct from sheet styrene,stock and Balsa if you would like to see it Ill email it to you.The seat is what makes our pilots look funny in this kit.

Nice, thanks for the link!
I'm no scale master like you guys so I'm just going to move the foam piece forward, shave it thinner and add a couple items in the back for effect.
Got my A/S steering setup working right, of course the servo immediately stripped its gears somehow??!!
R & R'd with HS-55.
Covered over the cheaterhole inside w/ taped up thin cardstock, looks pretty clean in there and the wheel clears too, we'll see how it flys tomorrow after work!

esc should stay cooler as the airflow going over it should increase.im willing to bet youll pick up top end and cruise speed. the inlet is plenty big enough for a 70. im not real sure why they felt they had to go that route.
