A Great Place To Fly

    gutter body

    Dared myself, Trainer 60 wing 60" sort of like a big stick so 57" body, apprentice tail. Made one circle (lap) landed on wheels. Was not pretty but will try with a bigger prop. If still work rough will put a bigger tail feather set.

    Basic Gas Engine Tuning

    This info provided from @DIrwin with PDF download >> Basic Gas Engine Tuning.pdf   VERY IMPORTANT!    Read each step and follow exactly and move the sticks exactly as I indicate, there is no slow stick movement when checking the H and L needles.
