    Is that tail wheel stadard TT equipment? Last I knew these planes didn't include a tail wheel. That is nice if it is in the kit!

    That's cool Rocky, leaves room for personal preference. These planes are very nice, I miss mine terribly.

    Not allot of progress this week. We got distracted by the upcoming Fresno Event. We did however install the rudder tray. We started out by removing the rudder tray that is installed in the plane, and made doublers from 1/4" ply for the PBS rudder tray to have something to bite onto. We also installed the ignition switch and one of the reciever switches. We are waiting for the big brown truck to bring a delivery of goodies so we can finish this thing

    Stay tuned, this plane will be completed after Fresno.

    Does this plane have servo cut outs if you wanted to go with a push-pull set-up?

    I will check next time we work on the plane. Maybe Showtime or Chopper can chime in here.

    Yeah, probably so. Short of the extra piece of plywood around the servo cutout in the tail of my AWX planes, there is no other real structural changes. I am sure it would be no biggy to do if the CG would allow it.
    There was a guy flying one of these planes in Unlimited last weekend. It was on his own custom pipes and had plenty of power and flew really light and seemed to snap clean. I think you all will like it.

    From what Ron says the plane is a little tail heavy and his is with a 3w170 with ll90 cans so i would say mounting the sevos in the tail for the rudder would not be a good idea.,

    For $100, the owner can take a half pound out of the plane!!
