Thanks Gary ...i was sure i had talked to you about that. Good info for others to know.
I really like how the JP brakes work. I have mine set soft so they wont lock up and skid and flat spot the tires. I also like there struts, they have a lipped seal for the strut shaft and it makes the strut function as a shock absorber.

I'm not familiar with the struts. Didn't Pat have some custom ones made for you guys for the Draken's ?

The struts are custom made, but they still use the same mounting hardware.

Don't let it get too heavy. I've seen this happen with scale jets a few times.

Looking good! I'll have to add those tubes of stuff to my collection. it's nice to have silicone that does not sag/run. Maybe the ultra grey is also good for gluing servos into little foamy planes..

Looks great, good luck!

For Saturday the 7th, forecast is currently at 72 and sunny. Wind is supposed to be WSW at 9mph. Take it with a grain of salt, the forecast won't be reliable enough until mid week.
