I already bought them. Went with GWS Pico. Or maybe Naro. I can't remember, one of those two. Maybe one of each. I have a pico sitting here, just needs a new gear, so I emailed them and asked them to add a set of gears to my order, dunno if they will.

With all the power your adding to this are you going to do the wing incedence mod? On a brushless electric motor mine wanted to loop all day long!

Looks great... good luck!

I've owned both the HS-55's and GWS, and honestly I've never seen any appreciable performance difference to justify the cost difference (which isn't that much, anyways). The HS's do chatter alot (doesn't affect performance at all), my gws do not. Maybe I'm just not as demanding of my servo's as everyone else? I dunno, but the gws cheaps have never hindered or annoyed me in any way. I find the longer I'm in this hobby the bigger a fan of GWS I become =/

Tommy, yes I placed a 1/8" metal rod between the fuse and wing approx. 1" from the leading edge and adjusted the wing mount accordingly. There is a little gap between the wing and fuse, I might fill or possibly even just tape over. I'm not sure how I'd fill it, really. I'm not worried about scale looks, but I don't want any exhaust shooting into the fuse for no reason. Stuffs just downright nasty.

Thanks for the luck, I'm sure I'll need it. I always doubt a plane will fly until it actually does, doesn't matter how much care I put into it's construction or how proven the design is. Every single time I've flown a new plane for the first time, "I'm just happy it got off the ground. More than I expected!" If the maiden of this plane isn't met with catastrophic failure, you can color me surprised. Besides the wing warping glow rc conversion of one of those cheap wally world gliders (which destroyed itself during glide tests), this is the most unproven plane I've built

=-/ That's crazy. $26?! I think I paid $12... for the Naro. I think. I didn't really pay attention.

Probably easy to find somewhere cheaper, I just don't feel like spending the time to search them up on dialup to save fifty cents

Oma? I haven't heard that word in a long time

Mine is horribly slow, and disconnects alot. It's horrible. If I had the money, I'd pay for satellite =/


My stuff should be here before Friday, maybe a maiden this weekend if I can finish it up. Doubtful... but, here's to optimism.

Pretty place.

My servo's, landing gear, servo gear, etc etc etc got here yesterday. I hope my fuel tubing will be here tomorrow so I can fly this weekend. No time to work on it yesterday, or today. Tomorrow night, maybe.
