Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Pros - plane flies well, CG came out perfect with OS 40FP engine, bolt on wing halves are very sturdy, weight is just over 5 lbs for a light wing loading.
Cons - worst offense is the small amount of wood that joins the split elevator is not reinforced to prevent the halves from separating - fixed during build, did not like 2 piece fuselage or bolt together tail section - both of these were epoxied to prevent tail section movement under high airflow, some of the linkage hardware was not robust enough to last and was replaced during build.
