Welcome. That is a very nice Pilatus. It appears to fly beautifully.

Where are you in Italy? My company has plants in Spinetta and Anagni. I've only been to the Spinetta plant but did enjoy what little I saw of Italy.

beautifully fly

Hallo Tom
excuse me for my terrible english.
Yes! pilatus porter fly beautifully, like the VQ 107 inc.
It's not more expensive and well built.
I make some customisation but in general, it's a very interesting model.

I know Anagni, my brother live near Anagni. I'm live in Faenza, Emilia Romagna (Adriatic coast).

You have a beautiful flying site. It looks big enough to fly full size airplanes from.

Hi D'avila!

I have the exact same model and I would like your help with two topics :

- did you follow the manual instructions for CG? isn't it too front heavy?
- how did you build such amazing landing gear set?

thanks! :-)

Very Nice. I have the 107" VQ porter to be built.

I would like to see more about how you built your main wheel mounts. What raw stock was it cut from?

The landing gear looks awesome. Similar to the stock version from Flitework. Do you have some tips on how to make it?
