I have used castle for years with zero issues. and the ice lite 50 has to be one of the best for this size plane.

Taking my time, but the plane is going together. Might get a maiden at the end of the week, we shall see. Those SFG's are HUGE, has anyone tried cutting them down and recovering with the extra covering that came with the kit? And since I don't fly3D, just aerobatic, is there any reason for me to use them?

Just try it both ways and judge it for yourself. They seem to make the biggest difference in upright harrier, but KE is also improved, especially at slow speeds and higher alpha....for "just aerobatic" and no 3D....give it a shot both ways.

I'm really liking the clear "2/3" size SFG's from Vintauri....they are smaller than stock, but still sufficiently large to have good effect.

I'm in Champaign IL today and will be home tonight. I'll look at the stack tonight or tomorrow and see what I have on hand. I know I had a few rejects so I want to make sure I don't send those to you.

+1.

For just Aerobatic, I would go without or get a set of Lexan Shorty, VinFins!

I'll finally have some CNC time in the next few days. I'll see how many lexan SFG's I can get cut out and then let people know they are available. Sorry for the delay as things have just been busy.

It depends on the cutting time. But it should be about $15 shipped for a set.
