mountian models cesna 180

this is my 180. love it! it hates wind but in the calm it is a real sweet hart. i have a eflight park 250 2cell 900 lipo 8x4.3 gws prop (not shown) flyies forever. enclosed are some pics. did a custom battery box with magnetic hold down with fake exhaust grab handle. i also did my own steerable tail wheel install. works great.

folks i spoke to MM yesterday the 17th June. these guys are awesome. i built a MM Eva Sport wing this week. well i,m ( not ) new to building anything, as it were i read the boards on the build. read the directions well. i built the Trailing edge wrong. there were 2 stamps that said INSIDE on both sides on trailing edge. Well much to my surprise the body is wedge shaped and the joiners were on the outsides of my wings. SS X tr edge wing tip is pointed out like that . so upon a test fit of all parts i discovered my error, called and spoke to MM no wait time no argument a bought the miss stamp causing my wing to built wrong. shipped a new wing to me. AWESOME customer service MM that is that in my book sold a new customer for life.

Nice work on the C180...I'd like to get one of these built too

I've read the manual online several times and couldn't figure out where the battery goes. I like your hatch...

Hello all, can anybody reccomend a good scorpion motor for the EVA? i fell foul of my own rule - buy cheap buy twice! My plane is currently in 3D mode but i have a sport wing ready to go, so a motor for both would be cool.

Thanks

The problem is that NOBODY has the 10 gram outrunners right now. The manufacturer hasn't returned my emails for over a week now. I'm starting to get worried!

FWIW, I got email notification that HobbyKing had the 10g 2000 kV outrunners back in stock.

motors

i sure like the eflight park 250. it pulls my 180 around just fine. i also like the eflight 10 amp pro esc. super good responce never had a problem. i use either a gws 6x5 for sport or a gws 8x4.3 for bigger models both on 2cell 800-100 mah lipos. i must have them in 7 of my fleet. seems like the sweet spot for models from 6-11 .oz weight is 15 grams. has prop saver, or use a vise or drill press to push the shaft out so you can use the included nutted spinner. motors are 32 dollars esc's are 28 bucks, but worth every penny. quiet and very durable!

Since the rain last week the mornings here have been real nice.
Mid 70's without a breath of wind.
Sure wish I had a little plane to cruise around the street....
Hint, Hint

OK guys im getting ready for the re maiden of my EVA. Got my nice new Futaba R6106HF, a new lighter ESC and because i could'nt get hold of the scorpion 2215-18 ive ordered a Hyperion ZS2213-18. Its a very similar spec and size to the scorpion but a bit more powerful.

My question is what thrust angles are you using with your motors? I cant wait to get back in the air.

Thanks
