I remember reading somewhere that DVa pilots frequently removed the headrests to improve vision to the rear.

Solartex hinges... The Solartex hinges on the Flyline Farman are still working after 30 years.

Good progress Phillip.
My SE5a is 1/10 scale also and has the Park 450. This has 4deg downthrust and 2 deg right.
Your thread has inspired me to find some time to progress mine a little, thanks.

I'm glad you've found this useful Chompwat, sounds like your down and right is about the same. I was hoping to hear that you've flown it !

This kit has been sold for quite a few years with the built in thrust angles with no reports of thrust angle issues. It is one of our most popular kits. So you shouldn't have a problem with the layout but I can't say what the effect of moving the LG will be on ground tracking.

Thanks for the word on the thrust angles. I figure moving the uc up a bit could only improve ground handling, since I fly mostly off of gravel fields. I'll let you know how it goes.

From the reports that I have had over the years, the stock configuration was very easy to handle on the ground and in the air. This model is one of our best flying.
