Could you perhaps let us see the compartment for battery and electronics?

Hope to see the video soon
The foam is beautiful. It is smooth like glass. None of that Parkzone texture stuff. It really is the best one yet from FMS as far as foam quality goes.

If the video ever uploads you will see that I can stick my whole forearm in the battery area. I will take some detailed pictures of the battery are this evening.

Thanks for the video. It really is a large plane. Looking forward to a flight report. I thought I was done with new builds for this summer. Maybe just one more

I would also like to know your feeling on removing the wings for transport.

That is an easy one. They don't remove. The wing struts have to glue in as does the cabane. So with everything glued, nothing can come apart for transport. That is the only negative right now because I know that a lot of guys will have to pass due to their vehicle size.

Indeed, but still common for biplanes, that's the downside

That's odd because Pete mentions the wings being removable In the review video. That may be a sticking point for me. I can fit my 3dhs 48" in the truck assembled. I will have to get out the old tape measure.

Yeah I remember him stating that too. The tail comes off but a small part of the rudder glues into a groove on the tail of the plane. So you will tear that when you remove the rudder. There are no screws or screw locations for the connecting wing struts. The manual clearly states to glue the struts on as well. So either Pete forgot that he had to glue them, neglected to glue them, or some one else built the plane. Either way, once built, everything is permanent until you decided to rekit.
