Retirement is good

A light Orion?


I refer you to post #301.

In any event, you will enjoy this bird a bunch.

Cheers back to you.

How have you guys been going with threading them.

mine is a tad on the heavier side, I have an ICE85 and MVVS motor in it.
CG? ~ 96-98 I like them moving , I am still experimenting with the cg, this glider is very forgiving ...

My Orion arrived but still weighting on the spinner. Also there's no push rod in the rudder sleeve. What size rod will I have to but for that? I assumed it would be supplied with the kit, because the elevator push rod is.
Otherwise a sweet looking plane.
