Went with a DLE30
Was thinking about what engine I wanted to go with and a friend sold me one new in the box for 125.00
Couldn't pass it up.

The Specifications indicate that the airfoil is “Semi Symmetrical”.

That sentiment sums it up for me too. My RV has been getting regular air time and I’m really starting to relax & enjoy it. I’d call it a nice way to step up into giant scale birds.

Absolutely a perfect step into Giant scale . It has the looks and really really nice performance. I recomend it to anyone looking for something that flys beautifully, has no bad habits, and the assembly could not be any easier. I do recomend replacement of the wing joiner tube ..maybe HH has updated newer kits with a more substantial joiner...if theyndidny , they should .
A true keeper !

It's a beautiful aircraft. I love this HH bird from afar, I'd still like to get one for sure at some point.

Flap Servo Extension?


This article says the flaps require a 13/17 servo extension, does anyone have a PN? I don't know which one to order?

Thanks

That's a servo arm not a servo extension.

The servo extensions for the ailerons are 18"

Measure it !
Lay your servo on tje flap servo bay. Lay out the lead ? Measure the distance from end of servo lead to aprox were you will mount your receiver and add 3-4" to give some slack for plugging in.

OK, I messed that up should have been 13/16, I'm looking for the part number for the flap servo arm? I'm new to both the hobby and the forum. A friend at the club I joined gave me the RV 4 but I'll have to out fit it. I have a complete parts list minus the flap servo arms.

Again thanks

What servos are you using? Most standard servo arm sets come with one that should be long enough. If not, you can order them, but they will be specific for your exact servo.

I am building my RV4 with an EFlite Power 160 motor. The manual recommends an 18x10 prop and the review picture looks like McD *might* be using an APC, but not sure.

Is anyone out there flying this motor that can tell me what brand they are using and if you went with a plastic or wooden prop?

Thanks
