...so I can cart the 104, 87 and another smaller plane (or 104 and a few small electrics) in the car without needing the trailer. I'm quite happy with that


(and I'm actually quite proud of the mud on my car... it takes effort and pseudo rally driving to make a car this muddy)
Try it nose first. That's how I git the 103 to fit in the Fit. The left wheel will rest on the driver's side but unless you're really big, it shouldn't be a big deal

ok, might as well list my setup now, so it lasts forever in the early portion of the thread i already have 99% of the equipment, just waiting on the official word on what size servo arms i shall need:

Easy tiger models 100cc electric motor
xoar 26x12, mejzlik 26x12, or maybe other prop
castle creations ice 160hv
12s10000 mah for normal flights, 15000 for imac setup
6x hitec 7955tg's (2x per aileron, 1x per elevator half)
1x JR 8911HV (rudder)
Hitec aurora 9 and optima 9 rx (no smartfly or anything)
some kind of bec to eliminate rx pack, and I will probably use 2 of these bec's linked with a batshare from smartfly

cant wait to get started!

Sub'd.

I think Ben should consider doing pre-orders by the post order on this thread!!!

That orange looks good...but the red does too.....the RED is closer to Osiris scheme I've already got.....and I like that one....hmmmmm....Toughest decision about this plane will be the color scheme choice.......

1 please, shipped to K-town.........I'm thinking red....but may go back and forth for a few days.....

Nice job Ben and Crew.

My setup will be...

DA120
Spektrum 9100 with 2 x 2s2200's for batts. (no ignition batt)
Harris comp smoke pump (like Joe's)
Mix of Hitec and JR servos (hitec 7950's and JR 8911HV's - Single aileron servos)
VESS 28A prop (works VERY well on my 103 now)
Redaero pilot (33% I think will work...can Joe measure the width of the canopy at the latch bolts for us....)

it's the simple setup for me.....

I hope single aileron servo is a choice on this one like the 103....can anyone confirm?

What's your AUW Joe?

We're talking "Newark" as in Ohio Throwdown, like Joe came to in late September after Huckfest.

That is closer for you, we had a guy up from KY. in the spring trial run.

Here's the page 11 link after the event, lots of pics linked in there a few pages back. There is a group shot. We expect it will be even larger this year.
