I love that model and the C188 too.

I was thinking about buyng the Hangar 9 Pawnee, but if I have to spend all the $$$ than i want to habe a bigger one. I could also search for a balsa kit, but i can't find any.

About the easytiger piper instead the only trouble is the shipping. I do not belive i will receive it healty...and it would be a problem in case.

Can you post any photo or video about yours pls?

I will ask them. Of course i like the pawnee
But, maybe I'm repeating, the hangar 9 is too much expensive related to it's dimension...and however I want a 2,5mt one to put a dle20 inside!

I can't report anything of my non-flight... and this is why i can't!
It's due to water on the fuel, my be there was some condensation in the tank and i didn't saw that when i filled it.

However this is the inside of the carburettor, how it was before. Now it's spick-and-span

Fuel contamination? I'm using tygon tube, an approved 5 liters fuel tank, and the original tank on the model + the dubro plug.

I say it's water because i used the same tank i used before for methanol. Than i washed it in a hurry and let it out of the door for a few hours. Than without check anything, i filled it with fuel and oil. I'm sure there was still some methanol leavings which are hygroscopic. My fault...i wanted to fly soon
