How did you do your flaps!?

I wnat flaps on mine and cant believe it came w/o the option, but a retract option!

Also, why the color scheme change? I like the yellow better

Jake,

Here is the info on the flaps. They were pretty easy to do.

Here's my just completed older version of the H-9 Mentor. Maidened Saturday and what a surprise----no trim adjustment needed!---even the engine mixture stayed the same as when I broke it in on the test stand back in April!

Nice job! The cowl looks really good. Glad you like it, just keep up the speed on landing, she'll stall and go into a spin.

Thanks D9. Yes, I read many threads about this plane that advised landing with a bit of speed and power. Actually, this rascal floated in nicely just a few clicks above idle, even in a crosswind. Heck, I haven't even bounced it on landing yet---a mainstay with my flying.

The main thing is it tracks better than any of the 20 or 25 planes I've owned or flown and although not a true aerobat, it does pretty much everything except hover----well, I can't hover anything anyway.

If the newer version, according to Horizon Hobby, has improved flight characteristics, I might have to have one of those too, although I sure like the "school bus" trainer scheme more.
