thanks for the offer but rather get an orginal e-slick if you know what I mean.

Ok I am not going to build it after looking at it again, I would have to buy a new cowl, canopy and motor box. I would like to then buy a new left wing and landing gear. LG is cracked and wing tip got pushed into its self a little bit. So forget it I am not putting it back together. I will have another SHP soon though. (top right corner would be a dog foot)

Go read through the 3rd to last page (not page 3 to the last page, the third to last) of the Hillbilly Huckers thread.

Asking because I'm thinking of doing that to mine but wondering/thinking about how to mount the motor. Then wonder how the CG would be since I have the rudder servo in the tail but I only have one servo doing both elevators.

I'd still rather sell the airframe and just get a new 71" if they ever come back in stock.
Have you seen this?
