I find the CG is good about 10 - 15mm in front of the wing spar.

Thanks for the nice comments MERLIN. But in reality, they only look "great" at about 10'.

Here is one fun plane! You need a lot of rudder input to fly it but once you get the mix right it's one fun flyer. Paint is Wal Mart Craft paint glossy type. Battery is 1350 11 volts. Motor BP-12 or 18 (can't remember ) Look forward to flying it off water this summer!

Very nice Gary! I have one sitting in a box waiting for its turn on the build board. My sister in law just went to work for a guy that owns one. I'm going to see if she can hook me up with a flight, and then I plan on modeling his plane.

I see you modified the front end with a different cowl!

Looks great

Here is an E-starter I am finishing up for my father. GWS included pushrod retainers in the kit - nice touch. It was put together pretty much by the book.
Specs:
2212/13 brushless outrunner
GWS HD8060 prop
Imex 25A BL ESC
TP90 servos - rudder and elevator
TP50 servos - one for each aileron
1250 mah 3S lipo
We will be upgrading to more scale wheels and I need to finish the battery door.

Nice paint job.
I really like the E-Starter, except for the stock decals.

Hey, beautiful plane, but in case my lady friend sees this, gotta put a capital M on the post as you did on the plane. smiling, smiling, and smiling.

Her name is "Marie", ha.

Where did I see that plane in the past few years? seems it was Model Airplane News? help; I have the magazine BURIED [somewhere in my "stuff"] with the pages open to THAT article.

Let us know how it flys; are you showing this on another thread?

Keep up the good work.
