Let us know how it goes SteveT! What prop will it be turning? The specs on that A60-5S look similar to the motrolfly 5320/300kv I got. I'm going to start with a 19x8 on mine.

Man, I've only been waiting for a month and it's still excruciating. I can't wait for the container to arrive so my airframe can get shipped.

I have been having good luck with a Xoar 20X10 PJT carbon gas on my 74" Edge, which is using the same motor, so, I'm going with it on the Extra also...

Ah, OK thanks. Yes, I actually remember you mentioning this a while back and I should've remembered. That prop actually looks very pretty. Aesthetically, I mean. Good luck on the flight!

Well my hot welders glue drip worked to strenghten my V1 wing that almost failed. 3 flights yesterday and some hard walls, all good. Glad I didn't have to cut into the covering.

The wing tube area was a little weak in the V1 planes, there were some failures. I had a near failure but glues it up. SteveT and some built a add on to the spar area to beef it up. Many haven't had a problem. I probably have 200+ flights on mine.

Yes I followed SteveT fix... I guess my question is what did you do to get the glue down there. Its a tight area to work in.
