TWISTED HOBBYS - 31" Gymstar (epp)

Twisted Hobbys is proud to offer this highly anticipated kit here in the U.S. The Gymstar has been available across the pond for several months now, but never in the U.S. I have always been looking for that perfect little backyard flyer that is 4ch., flys great, and very durable. I found something better...The Gymstar floats so graceful and slow its the most peaceful little foamy I have ever flown, but if ever need be you can turn up the rates and go all out 3D aerobatics.

It was just a dry fit. Trust me I'm following the PDF step by step, but they start falling apart right at the point after the LG gets glued on. 130mm gets you no where near the preprinted mark, and it recommends the 1mm CF rod? So then the 1.5mm is used for wing struts, servo push rods and tail bracing? I've got a few more questions so I'll PM you direct...
