It's a EPS foam kit, a light plane, lighter than Pico TM, easy to build and easy to fly.

THANK YOU MR . PHOAM!!!!!!

Going to be doing an EPS P51, glassed as light as possible, in a Reno Mod with clipped and filleted wings. My experience with the undercambered wing is that they induce an upward reflex finishing out a dive or following a high speed turn.

The comparison shot sold me. Thinking an early schemed Dago Red- Galloping Ghost over done and wingspan way too small!!

TheLeabres ! The Camera is a #16 808 Keychain Camera Lens D V2, 720p HD. The lens has a 120 degree view.
The lens came with it.

I found it on Ebay for $50.00 US.

Always a pleasure to see Ed flyin the TM400. What a a sweet flier, Carlos. Are you still flying your tiger striped TM400?

Ed must have strengthened his wings somehow to endure those snap rolls?

I put in a handful of hours on mine today in an attempt to resurrect it from a botched maiden it suffered due to warped wings it had right off the bat.

I added a short spar to my top wing replacement and slowly spun the wing to simulate a gentle roll, 90* later I had two mini stress cracks at the rear of the faux gas tank. Then added a second CF spar behind the cabanes to support this feeble area.

Paint's drying. Cutting out 4 ailerons tomorrow, just as the former wing set had.

Yes indeed, Ed did install hollow carbon fiber tubes in both wings.

I do have my "TIGER" Painted "Pico" GWS TIger Moth and it still flys great.

ESC question


I used male bullet connectors on my ESC. I accidentally plugged them reverse (black to red, vice versa) and saw a puff of smoke and in les than a second I disconnected. I thought the ESC fried but apparently it works fine (on ground tests).

I'm replacing the ESC and will use the suspect one for an experimental foamie swamp car.

Why is the ESC still working after it let out the death smoke?
