I'm slow. What do you mean "like reactor bipe". It has a CG like all the other 3DHS planes do that is recommended.

Yeah but is it a Joe 3.0 or 4.0 CG? It matters.

Special tools should not be needed. Years ago I bought a high end balancer for some other biplane I bought which specificed a cg of xx.5 mm. I quickly realized trying to be this exact was a pain and there was no way I could place the battery consistantly enough for that level of precision anyway. Tool was a waste, got cg close with fingers, flew and adjusted to my liking.

Yup....have seen her here a few times......and though I have never had the pleasure of meeting any of the Smiths, I have talked to them on the phone....all very nice people!!

And yes, I have heard she bakes great cookies!!!

Of course, I'm sure she takes comments like that, like my wife does....she just ignores them...but I also told my wife not too long after we got married and she cought me checking out some gal.....the day I stop "window shopping"...I'm dead or I've started "batting for the other side" (no insult meant to anybody)...and so far, I'm not dead, and I haven't switched sides.....

Does the Bype really need an 18" servo extension?

Possibly.....a 12" might be a bit short, as the fuselage is over 48" long....

I have been anticipating this one for a long time. Pulled the trigger on the red one along with all the goodies needed to complete it. Hopefully I can get it in time to build and have ready for the E-Nall!

It seems that the folks that have said they have pre-ordered red Bypers, waaayyyy out weighs the folks that have said they ordered blue ones.....I hope 3DHS ordered lots of red ones, and I'm glad I got my order in early!!
