No, I didn't use any weight in this plane at all. It's got a rcgf 35ra in it, and two of these http://www.valuehobby.com/power-syst...h-2s-life.html
right at the rear of the tank in the cockpit. Balanced perfectly using the supplied jig. It's a sweet flying plane. It needed a few clicks of up elevator but otherwise was hands off from the first flight. My landings have been a bit bouncy, but not terribly so...so far have only used full flaps once. It did need a little down elevator mixed in with both flap settings...with a few more flights I hope to improve on the landings.

I've got the smaller version, .46/.52 which came out slightly nose down. I would presume it would fly ok.

Yeah, I’m feeling good about the cg. Slightly nose down is good.

Had the Stinson out at a fun fly event this weekend. Such a delight to fly.

I am considering the Stinson, but due to small car, can the tail be made removable, I can easily make the rudder hinges come out for transportation. I am thinking of making the stab a bolt on. I have an idea, any suggestions?

I don't think this model would work well with a removable tail. It could be done, but it might be easier to get a bigger car!��

I think I figured out a way to do it by looking at the manual, else the smaller Stinson one will have to do!

A local friend just received his, I'll check it out for a possible pluggable tail conversion.

Good luck! Hope you figure it out.

Just pulled the trigger on the 30cc one. Was lucky and got it at Tower when the price was down $30 for a week. Now I must decide on the expensive Saito FG-30 or 40, a new DLE-35, or reuse of the DLE-30 and other electronics out of an Sbach that I donít fly enough.

The 30 or 40 four strokes will be great!

I looked at my friend's Stinson 30CC ARF, Great packaging and great looking plane although I didn't want to take all the wrapping apart, it is not mine. I think I can do the mod for a removable stab and rudder for transportation purpose. Nice dark blue and white covering!
