Hi Guys

Sorry for the delay with this thread, this was due to the extremely high cost of shipping a single kit to the UK and the fact I have a container on its way due in 10 days or so the plan was halted until the container arrives around the middle of this month.

my time has not been wasted as I have been building a Pilot Decathalon which is almost ready to test fly after all the over 20 kilo inspections and paperwork have been completed

Re: Pilot RC Sbach 342 50cc build thread

I have a DLE55 on mine..
I started my build by making a mounting space for my reciever (JR r922) as you can see the first pic. My bateries i have mounted under the rudder servo tray and will try CG there...If i have to will move but this was the cleanest way to start...Again sb 1... I used EC3 conectors for the reciever batteries and standard JR leads for charging...sb 6... The R922 uses only 1 power switch for the reciever also seen in sb 6... SB 3 is just an overview of the fuse and my rigging...SB 4-5 are the cowl pics...I cut out a couple of days ago and this is as I said my first build...I found that i had to snake the cowl on around the exhaust and thus had to move the hole backwards in order to get the cowl in the right place...you might find a better way but this is what I came up with (the hole looks like a backwards 9 when you get tru)...I will send more pics if anyone interested, just ask... Used HiTec 7955 on controls and DS821 for throttle servo

When I get it in a week, I most certainly will. So far your "the one", man!

I'm glad I ordered the pitts style muffler. I think a canister set-up might be the winning ticket. Hopefully someone is on that, lol!
