Had 2 flights, been a while since I have flown this bird. Added invasion stripes, seems there are a couple of variations of Chucks stang. The pix I am using for scalemasters have the invasion stripes, so I added them and it looks great in the air. Tried to get video but the take-off was all that really came out good enough to post.

Thanks, has a unique sound. Most people that see it fly think it has a sound system.

Royster,

From this thread post# 233,

"
Sorry to hear that. If you just click "Search This Thread" on the toolbar and type in "CG" you'll find many posts stating that the manual is way off and that anything close to the manual's suggested location will result in a loss of the plane. "


This method works great, I've used it. Seems like 130mm back from LE on center line works.

Also check the thread

and look for Oldtimer47, a fellow countryman of yours, who has a lot of experience with this bird.


Let us know how you make out flying, J e r

Hi.
I started the build of this model.
Thanks for all info found in this forum.
I have some questions:
Do you use any down / right thrust other then the build in one?
Do I have to rank forward the retracts?
What throws for Ail, Elev, flaps and rudder?
Any mixes needed?
Thanks for helping
