Stone the crows! How come all the designs that catch my eye are either from a bygone era, long out of production, or otherwise virtually unobtanium. Curse of an island economy and the tyranny of distance. I blame the Radian fliers for lowering the bar . . . the carbon-composite junkies for raising it too high . . . the government . . . the Collingwood football club . . . and the drongo that backed into my ute last Friday night. And another thing . . .

Sir Percy Ware-Armitage at your service. But don't worry about your wheel nuts old boy, I had my man Courtney inspect them as a precaution.

I know this is a very old thread but I will be getting with soaring usa monday and talking price and time to receive one of these beauties. Im going for the electric and will be using a neu motor and gearbox, not shure which one I need to see how much space there is.

I got one from Bob a while back. Still have not find the right numbers for the correct motor. Probably 3S.

I have a MVVS 5.6/960 in mine if that helps:

The access isn't great but there is a reasonable amount of space. I also have been using 5000mAh 3S Nanotech batteries, because I had them, and the airplane balances without additional weight - other than the heavy motor and battery.

I finally came up with a decent way to keep the wings attached. I use two 10" to 12" long strips of 1" wide fibreglass strapping tape ahead of and behind the hatch across both wings and the fuse, and 1" clear hockey stick tape tape along the wing/fuselage joint. I put heavy packing tape on the wing in the areas the tape goes, to stop the covering from being pulled up when I remove the other tape. So far that seems to keep the wings on quite well.

I am not sure if this is always the same for the firewall. The only I have has a 3-bolts(120°) mounting pattern on the built-in fire wall. So unless you can find a 3-bolts motor or gearbox, it is pretty much useless. I made an adaptive plate to go from a 4 bolt to a 3 bolts mounting holes. I have a NEU motor but the the thick firewall and the plate, only about 3/8" of the shaft came through.
