Planes/accessories are in the truck.

What motor/esc am I going to need for the F&F, and I wonder if Don will have that there?

I have cut out six (6) F&F airframes (complete with wood spar, leading edge dowel and plywood motor mount) and will give them away to entice anyone who is looking to put their broken combat gear into a new class of airframe.
Pat,
Jordon is flying the same gear as the WWII planes.

If it is not raining too hard, I'll be there and wait it out.

I have motors and ESC's but I'm out of 9 g servos. A new order of 60 cleared customs in Chicago yesterday. They could show up yet today, but more likely in a day or two.

Actually, I was talking about this pm if it rains so we could swap stuff, but I'm good for both tonite and tomorrow.

Well then, if it is raining, should we meet there?

I'll swing by Stony Creek to see who is at the flying site, if no one there, then I guess I'll go to Callaways.

Edge 540 VLF version 3.0

Hey Guys,

Here to bother you again. Took all of your great ideas and incorporated it into version 3 of my VLF Edge 540 Racer. Now complete with Landing Gear

Just looking for your ideas again to improve on this design before I potentially waste my time in cutting it out. Any input you might have to improve the flight performance and or ease of build would be greatly appreciated!

Also anyone have an idea on how to make a nice simple rear wheel connected to the rudder or rudder control rod?

Thanks for your thoughts!

Have fun tonight.
