Easy - the SS is a WAY better plane than the SV. The SV tail is sloppy/floppy, weak fuse (8mm) that's not very standard, lousy motor, weak accessories. Stock it's only really suitable for dead calm conditions.

The SS basic equip is substantially better and there is a LOT more support (thread help) for it.

I would think a guy with 2400 posts would have owned one or seen dozens.

thanks, Slow Stick it is. I once saw a SS being powered by an EDF that was mounted on top of the wing. I started with an I.C. Sig Kadet. Gas is messy and I am ready to buy electric.

Now THAT had to be a WELL reinforced SS!!!
But, it's an indication of the kind of grief builders put the SS through.

Boomer has passed on but before he did he was one of the major forces in SS mods. Do some searching on his SS and you'll find some great info and some really interesting builds.
