New L.E.G. 48" Fat Albert DS's to 177 Mph!


I've just received my new leg 48" fat albert

Jack has done it again and came out with a 48" version of the fat albert.

The kit is typical of leg kits,,very complete and thought out with a pre-shaped fuse with the vertical fin slot pre-cut as well.

The elevons are also pre-shaped and come with a 30deg bevel on them already.

I also got 2 sets of pushrods with it 4-40 & 2-56 so I have the option of building stock or heavy

This kit looks like a quick strait forward build to me.
I'll soon be doing a build thread and flight report on this plane here in this thread.

Thank's Jack


Nick

If you were gonna build one for light -to medium DS fun, would you get a 48" or 60"?


I'm thinkin' a mid-weight 60" would be more stable
