I have about 20 flights on mine now.
I am really happy with it. I just have one problem.
I can't find any place on the plane to grab it with one hand to carry to the flight line when my TX is in the other hand. Every place that I try to pick it up is either a flimsy spot with covering over an open structure, or a pretty weak place on the plane. I tried to pick it up once by the landing gear and
just broke off the little skirts on the landing gear wire.

That is a pretty minor problem but I am going to have to find a better way to carry it one handed.

I grab mine at the left wing root up next to the cabin from the front with my right hand. That works for me and it keeps it balanced. I can carry my transmitter with my left hand and i stay balanced as well.

Who put that TREE there!!
I pick mine up from the nose just behind the cowl (lots of wood there) and never had a problem yet...

I have tried that area. It just feels like I am going to poke my finger through the covering material. There is no wood backing there on the wing. it is just a covered span between the wing ribs.

That is probably the strongest area to grab it. I just don't like having my arm that close to the prop once the battery is connected and it is armed.

I connect the battery in the pits at our field and then carry the plane out to the runway.

Well, anyway I have a whole bunch of flights on it and it is a great plane to fly.

So balance it using one of the ribs as your support. Pick the one nearest the root. Works great and gives a good backing. You should always have something firm to back when you balance.

It worked great. Be sure to use the clear and not the white decal paper for this application.
I use Clear Decals from AVERY. Works good. Have a look!
Thank's again

Trust me to get interested in plane where there is no stock?

I think this plane will go great with my Mini Pulse and goldberg super chipmounk 400.
