Radian to Radian Pro Conversion

Hey guys

We where piggy back launching a ASK21 from our Radian (non pro). had about 10 sucessful launches and 2 bad crashes. Not sure what was happening but the small ASK 21 was getting loose and somehow getting stuck infront of the radian's wing. The result was a long drawn out down in flames crash.

Long story short I have a good firewall, motor, tail surfaces but other than that a complete loss. I'm thinking about buying replacement parts for the PRO and build a pro instead of rebuilding a regular radian.

I've got this in my shopping cart. Can anyone think of anything else?

PKZ4121 Control Horns with Hardware: 3D/2,Radian/Pro
PKZ4713 Canopy: Radian/Pro
PKZ5401 Flap Set: Radian Pro
PKZ5405 Wing Tube: Radian Pro
PKZ5420 Main Wing: Radian Pro
PKZ5422 Pushrod Set: Radian Pro
PKZ5423 Flap Pushrods: Radian Pro
PKZ5467 Bare Fuselage w/o Canopy: Radian Pro

I have plenty of HXT900 servos I plan on using in the wing. Can anyone think of anything else? Also Horizon isn't too clear, are the pushrods, clevses, and horns included with wing/fuse?

Not clear to me what you are doing?

First ASK21 - There are a LOT of ASL21s out there. What make?
2 meter? 3 Meter? 4 meter? 5 meter?

I am interested in how you were mounting it on the Radian.

As for the Pro, what is the cost of what you priced out. The firewall and tail surfaces of the Pro may be different from teh Radian.

You would probalby be better off just getting the PnP version of the pro. The cost difference may not be that much. - $184

Pro version wings do not mate to the ver. 1 Radian. For around 30 dollars you can get replacement wings for the V.1 Radian.
