thanks guys. i like the new fast model hehe, wish i had that on my alula.. im drawing up some paint jobs, i Will be able to tell top from bottom heheh. , i have an idea for maken control rods instead of using the string. i have used shrink tubing to secure carbon rod to the control horn before (alula..) and i have some 1.5 mm rod left over but i dont think itll be long enough, if it works tho the controls will be slop free and very positive, and the rods being inthe boom will look cleaner hehe im willing to sacrifice wieght for control and looks, havent been a issue inthe past.
also the airbrush paint in mind is water based but will required clear coating..+ more wieght tho sraped light wont be bad, but im wondering if i used an acrelic paint if it would soak to the foam.. keep in mind it will be very light and dries almost instantly and acrelic wont need a clear coat. thoughts???
mike

ps, note onthe rods, im wanting to does this so when i fly on slope the control is strong

You sure that was a real Peak Hobby kit? I've seen one video (link earlier in this thread) and one other reference to modifying the B900 into an aileron/elevator ship. In fact, I've been toying around with doing that to my second B900. Don't get me wrong, a real A-E B900 kit would be cool! like a more affordable x-ray micro or apogee elite!

That news was true, I saw Mr. Harry Ha playing b900-V2 last Saturday, but I haven't taken any pictures.

what sort of battery pack did they provide? can you post specs and a photo? I'm using a standard little flat 4-cell 150 mAh NiMh pack that works fine, but am curious what Harry recommends...

I don't know, it'll be hard to top the Ultimate Slow Stick Help Threads, which have nine parts to it and go all the way back to 2003.
