On a different note I just wanted to share a pic of Peter/EELightningFan's Hobbyking Pitts which he recovered in vinyl. I've seen this thing up close and it's a work of art, honestly you could have it as a static display it's that good

U can tell who has to much time on their hands lol.

Got my 250 Trex stuff today....

It took a total of about 5 minutes to actually fix... I was shocked! I put the screw on the end of the screwdriver and it went in first go...! Now thats a first...

Putting the ball links on the linkage rod was a bit different though, that took a few goes...

But all is well, I just had a test hover and everything seems to be ok... its a little more "skittish" then I remember, but it has been a while since I had it going... That was inside though, so turbulence probably didnt help...

Thanks for everyones help!

Also... I was in dick smiths yesterday in Elizabeth... looking for some heat shrink and came across some screwdrivers sets... well, I found one set that had 0.7 and 0.9 hex bits.... WOW! I bought it straight away, and it made this job that much easier... all that searching and trying to make one.. Im so glad I found one.

I think Nitro was going to pop around for a coffee then we were going to go to MF so he could buy his new toy. I was going to get one as well.

As for your question, I'd go the Hunter.....
