I can't see where anything happened to it. How do you like the T-28 funfighter? There is a guy at my club with one.

Its fun and it does about 120mph downwind with a 4s 1000mah pack. Had one aileron servo DOA and then the other one died the last flight but it was stuck at center. I need to pull it out and change it. I cut a hole in the side of the fuse and put a servo in for a rudder. Now I can do slow rolls, snaps, and spins. Its a fun plane!

The Snake...

...hold in the rudder, then keep it out of the dirt with the elevator and ailerons... due to the flight path needed to do it, the right hand stick (for mode 2 guys) will end up in a circular pattern. To practice, get the feel of flying the upright/inverted turning pattern without the inward facing rudder first... then add the rudder once you're comfortable with what has to happen. Note that the rudder input is pointing down/inward to the turns, it's not a knife edge at all.

There's a few variations, tighter pass with the wings more vertical and less rolling out into a turn, there's wider and flatter turns that are like linked hurricanes, and now the guys are throwing in 1/2 snaps into the change-overs so that they're all inverted, etc. Lots of challenges, all made pretty hard as the turns involve getting back on track while holding the nasty downward rudder.

41" Edge motor box

Spring has sprung & I'm in desperate need of a motor box for me 41" Edge. If anybody has one or knows where I can get one I would appreciate the help. I've been trying to get one for a while with no luck. Now I'm getting a little frustrated.

I was thinking the same thing when I did my cutouts on my 87"SHP especially where there is a two color overlap.
