The wing is a snap to build and is actually very easy and straight forward. The fuse is basically just a box.
The instruction book is well done and easy to understand. I doubt it will take you six months to build.
One thing I didn't do and wish I had is to build a removable hatch to allow access to the fuel tank. If you build it the way the book says you can't get to the tank.
All in all, it's a fun kit to build. Mine hasn't flown yet, but from what I've read a .46 is about the smallest engine you want to put on.
I have a Super Tiger .51 in mine.
Make sure you get a pilot. I have a Williams Brother 1/8 scale military pilot (part no.17100) and he's just the right size. I found another pilot which had a separate rubber oxygen mask and tubing, so I put the O2 mask on the Williams pilot. Cant remember what brand the pilot with the mask was though.
I thought about putting retracts on mine but couldn't figure out how I would get them to work. I would be interested to see how you do it.
Well, supper's on so I have to quit babbling.
Have fun with it!
I have had 2 of these planes, Both were good flyers with the exception of a high speed stall in a tight turn, this is caused by too much elevator throw however. Other than that the planes fly wonderfully and land VERY easy. Just watch it when you pull a tight turn and be ready to back off if the nose starts to tuck under. Russ
