Don't feel bad most the stuff I get is charity. My friend knows the boat Im. He bought 2 edf jets and made a deal with me If I build them we both fly them. He funds the projects. The shock 3D he just gave me. But Im short 2 servo's and a battery. I just gutted a park flier for the berg 4 and 3 servo's but still need 2 more

I got the throttle servo in. I was messing around with a slantflex tank 4oz. but it isn'yt going to work. I can just stuff it in the hole. But the front hits right where there is a little cross section of the mount so Im going to try a flat front tank when I get one. hate to have to put a smaller tank in. Any one know what kind of run time I would get on a 2oz.

Thanks Gunny,After cutting out a few area's to put the tank in she is a bit weak in the sidws and nose. I have added a few pieces of carbon fiber, You can see them in the laast pic. Im going to add a couple more once I put everything in. Im a bit worried about the paint on the cowl melting wondering if I should get some clear ureathane to spray it with.

Motor Mount Pics.

Here are some more pictures. I took Pictures with both the Pitts Muffler And the stock Muffler to show that you could do this without the pitts muffler (an extra $30) I might add that the stock muffler would also fit with only a Small Exit hole in the cowl.

But the power will be better, as well as the sound, and you won't have to cut a big hold the in the front of the cowl for the LE of the pipe muffler...go with the pitts!

I almost have her finished. I gutted 2 servo's for the aileron's out of an old wreck I forgot about. I need to make a pirch for the battery. I have a little 5 cell
which when placed on top of the rudder,elevator servo's balances perfect. She is a bit portly. I think the box says 21oz.with 2100bat Im at 25oz. Or right around there I will check later.
