I am placing an order from the French company for some of the light weight wheels. Scale size for the CMP-109 is 41/2 inches and these are 100mm or 4 inches and look light so I will give them a try. Once received I will let you know how they look. They look like they might be out of China but have not seen this design anywhere else. I did buy the Sunshine (Germany) plastic G-6 wheels and they are OK but not impressed by the foam donut tire that is butt fused and not one piece molded. This French one looks to be foam style and molded in place. Will keep you posted.

Hi been reading this thread, some great info. I've got a cmp 109 just starting to build. I see some people ditched the supplied hinges for ailerons and flaps, is that really neccessary? I've already glued mine in before I found this thread. If they are real bad then I'll get them out.

Greets all. I got this plane little late considering its been around for over 5 yrs.
A couple of questions...
Largest wheels which fit ? I am ready to do modifications, as I already have thought about moving retracts position a bit more scale position. Williams brothers 4"?
I already have Sierra CMP retracts, but I still think I would benefit about moving the rails bit forward and then raking struts back a bit. Also if I moved rails also inward towards the center of the plane I also would get more scalelike widht but then I also would have to extend the struts.
Are CMP struts same lenght as ESM struts, only the base unit has differently angled hole?
Has anyone measured how much I would have to change the dihedral to reach correct angle? the wing seems bit flat at moment, correct dihedral is around 6.5 degrees.
And if someone has a spare alloy spinner for sale (uncut or for 3 blades) please contact me!
