After tip stalling my Super Sniffer I cut the fuse in half just behind the leading edge of the wing. The damage had stopped at the broken former and I cut across that line.
I pulled out the original plan and extended the nose a little bit since I did not really like the very short nose when seeing it in the air. ( I actually liked the stubby nose up close and that was why I purchased the kit.)

I tried to maintain the original lines even though it was a little longer. I did not need the three additional ounces of lead in the nose after moving the motor, landing gear, and wheels forward.

Here's a Super Sniffer that I just completed. It is a BMJR kit.
The wing has so much dihedral that I'll need very calm conditions to get it off the ground.

Edit .... It is much easier to hand launch.
I like it. It will handle a light wind well. I'm still getting to know it. It will land really slow.
Use hardwood for a stick mount motor. The balsa stick is much too soft for a motor mount.

This is my first bi-plane as well as my first 6-cell model.
Looking forward to having some fun with this. I installed an E-flite aluminum spinner.

Enjoying this Yak 54 lately. I can't do it justice but it is a blast to fly anyway. I lost my old Brio and needed to have something to throw around the sky.

This Pawnee was purchased in 2008. I currently have 869 flights on it.
I pick my days now in order to see if I can reach 1,000.

I have been enjoying this Super Cub. I was drawn to the detail of the metal wing struts and the landing gear suspension system. The ribbed flap and aileron surfaces are a plus as well as the large tires and the optional cockpit kit. Lots of nice features in this plane.
