I've found that keeping the empty box from my first Habu 32 in the garage meant that my Mrs-to-be hasn't clicked it's now no longeremoty, and in fact home to airframe #2... Of course I have the HK to explain whenever that shows up.

Gaz, the tracking doesn't always work for me, its not on the Viper...

Tell her that you won it in a draw you entered. Would that make me just as devious.

A REALLY bad day at work. My co-worker was killed today when a drill rig tipped over and hit a second rig. I cut thru the reckage as fast as possible, till the firemen told me not to bother

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

He was only 25 years old

Five others were injured. 2 severely

any thought on this jet vs the Habu 32?
ive been waiting for the Habu 32 for ages now and though this might be a better alternative and maybe a bit cheaper to set up?

any thoughts

Hi Trev,
sorry to here that!

there's a manual online at HK: look here

it says:
CG: The ideal CG is 35mm in front of the main landing gear. For the first flights, make sure that the CG is in this location!


My Viper is finally on its way! Many customers here in Germany report of slightly damaged fuslages due to too small boxes. Obviously the airframe touches the box with the tip and the rudder... let's hope!
