If you go to post 8065 you will see what my SC can do.
It has a 1400kv TP 2408-21 brushless of course, with 25amp ESC, and 8X4 prop. It has 3.5inch wheels, Lipos are any thing from 1500 to 2200 as they are right on the COG.
As I have said it flies like a FUN CUB with the mods I have done.

They came with the 15 SC. But most LHS have them.

I've see them on EBay from the States. 15 quid all in inc international postage.

Thanks but I have seen them on EBay. If you buy from the US, you can get clobbered by customs for VAT and then the post office charge about 9 for the pleasure of picking it up from the Main PO and paying them the VAT.
That is why I would like to get one from a UK dealer.

Hmmm. Not so clever. I've searched and can't see anything quite the same over here. Cage mounts would probably be the closest. I've seen a few alloy adjustable mounts as well but nothing as neat as the billett ones.

Is there a Horizon Hobby dealer in the UK?
Horizon stocks them, but they are very often out of stock.

They have a UK mail order site but they do not have these mounts listed. Their products seem to be distributed to smaller independant LHS.

Here's my new setup:

It's priceless how much fun you will have.
The pics seem to show much longer landing gear. Did you do that or adapt another plane's? What did you have in mind doing it?

I would try a 10x6 to start. The motor should come with some recommendations in the instructions.
10x6 wood works real well with the 450 - looks scale, too.

A very small drop of CA on the end of the axle before putting the plastic nut back on will eliminate that from ever happening again.
Don't let it stick to the wheel.
