yep i'm in i ordered later in the day Friday so expect mine to show up by Friday i have already stripped the gear out of my old Cosmos ready to fit to the stick with hope this weekend.
One thing i will be doing before i fly is beefing up where the landing attaches to the fuse. Every ARF seems to have this as a real weak spot and i have already read this plane is the same.
the other thing is i'm going to have to try and change that covering job with some stickers as it looks, according to Corinne, god dam ugly!

But for $81 delivered WOW! the balsa, ply and glue would cost more than this whole model here

What sort of flying does the stick style plane excel at? never had one or really seen one fly, well except for small foam ones, hmm guess i better go look on the Tube!

be interesting to see all the setups on this one, for me i just wanted to replace an old plane i was given and i fitted it out with newer gear, but it's too oil sodden and soft and has some bad warps, so when i saw this for $67 it was a no brainer

cheers chuck

and a word of advise if your using the G46 and mounting it with tubes like mine.

I took on on Satuday and had a bit of vibation, (new prop) did a circuit at half power and then nailed it for a vertical climb, get up a good way and suddenly something flew of and there was silence.
yep motor departed from plane was a little interesting to land

The mounting X that came with mine cracked throw where the motor screws go and the rest didnt stay done up, think I forgot the lock tight. I believe the use of washers to adjust thrust put stress on the X and it finaly gave up.

Motor recovered no damage apart from new prop broke fly it again yesterday

the chinese builder must have been building both wings at the same time left eye on left wing right eye on right wing surely thats how they keep labour cost low? lol
