Immaculate Taurus, Otto and it looks great with the retracts. You should attend this upcoming VRCS event run by Tony Frackowiak. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...0#post40062084

Hi Hoot. Used Hobbico set with wing and nose servos. Moved mains forward, maybe a little too far. An inch behind CG would be perfect. Ply shear plate created behind firewall to mount nose retract and support battery.

Very well done, despite the fact it is electric and not glow. Oh well, we can't all be GLOW HEADS
All kidding aside, your Taurus is great looking plane., enjoy it.

Smooth Air & Strong Signal

Great job, Otto. Still one of my favorite planes, built two many years ago. May do one again.

Nice work, Otto. It needs a cylinder head, though Just doesn't look right without one.

They look good but why are the heads oriented 90 degrees off the case?

Nice!

I've put them on several of my planes and there is always a positive comment. One is a 3X-sized Cox .049 and I put LEDs in the exhaust ports so as I throttle up they glow. Pretty cool effect.
