Does that happen to be the green/silver cap that was at the 3D line last year?

Gene from Rcairplanestands and his Dad brought it to Nall last year. It brought back so many memories from my first experience with a giant scale plane that I just had to fly it. I fell in love with that plane all over again and felt like I was 12!
The plane ended up dead sticking into the trees later in the week while I was up on the main line working with Karl on the Pitts. It ended up in pretty bad shape but I just couldn't see it go out that way. After talking to Gene he let me take it home to fix.
May pop a thread up on it here soon. Built the fuse back to shape and have it just about fully buttoned up. Going to hotwire a new set of wings and stabs for it this coming week. I hope to have it at Nall again this year.
What are you, 14 now?? Damn kids!

I remember seeing that plane and thinking what a beautiful bird. Heard there was incident but glad to see you are bringing it back to life.

Hello,

Firstly, this discussion on the Krill extra is very useful. Just got my krill and MVVS 116 NP.

Does someone have pictures of the MVVS 116 NP installation ? It would help a lot especially if you have pictures with MVVS exhaust and headers


Thanks

I'm sure this has been posted previously, but I can't seem to find it.

What orientation do the servos need to be installed in the wings and stabs?

Thanks,
Jacob

I installed all servos in wings and stabs with the pinion gear forward (rather than aft)
