How would you fiberglass the bottom of this model if epoxy will not stick to this foam?
Any ideas would help, I thought I saw where someone was using polycrylic and light fiberglass will this work?

It will add drag. Will shortening the motor shaft help? If so, do that.

I also don't like how far the rear of the adapter sticks so far out from the back of the prop assembly.. Gah. Two LHS's with no luck. Gregoo looks like he figured it out but I the translator boogers up my question..

I screwed up and forgot the accessories package. Anyone have the spec on the 3mm bolt so I can go hunting for some?

Thanks.

Back in the days of my youth, when we had to beat trees into pulp to make paper, we had a transmitter and a plane with a receiver. None of this model memory and model match stuff. Even servos had to be purchased with the proper directional attitude! Things were so much simpler...

And you had to walk 10 miles to school in 6 feet of snow, uphill both ways?

I am looking at ways to strengthen the tail and horizontal stab of my Easystar I as it gets easily damaged while transporting. I have taped 2 BBQ sticks as the horiz stab was warped. The tail (vertical stab) is not exactly perpendicular to the fuse. Anyone know of a "lightweight" solution to keep it perfectly vertical. Perhaps right angled CF brackets that no one makes..
