Hey Philip I bought an Ultimate bipe today also. What mods are you going to make to your bipe?

"I passed on the kool-aid"

I have about 10-15 minutes time on mine so far...


I am fairly pleased. It looks really good in the air. Unless you are flying off pavement or dirt, I would ditch the wheel pants. They tear easily off short grass. I plan on taking on of those brass grommets that come with servos and glueing it in the axle hole on the pants to strengthen them. Make sure the landing gear is one their strong. It bend pretty easily. I have resorted to hand catching at the moment. My landing gear block was glued in backwards. Make sure yours is in according to the manual otherwise you will have to redrill holes for the wire. The plane is surprisingly very ridgid stock. I might consider some triangle balsa under and over the lower wing. Make sure the pushrods are braced well. The setup they had recommended in the manual did not work for me. I had to put the pushrod keepers on depron standoffs away from the body. Have fun! Are you using the stock motor?

put the battery up on the cabane instead of on the fuse side, it improves the knife edge!!
