Thanks Donnie.

DA120 with Extreme Power stock mufflers
Vess 28B prop
Smart Fly EQ10, ignition regulator, optical kill, pinflag switch
Hitec HS7954sh servos on surfaces and throttle
Hitec HS7980 on rudder
Twisted servo extensions - I had
SWB servo arms
Fuel tank will from a Fiji water bottle - I will make
Great Planes 38% 330 pilot figure

I use one on my 30cc plane. I know the 7954 seems over kill, but I'm gonna be doing HV setup.
I don't want to put a reg between the servo and Smartfly board. Plus the servo will hold up with
the 120 up front.
Some people put higher dollar servos than this on the throttle.

You maiden that Edge of your's yet?

Default Stock mufflers

Was gonna do the RC Extreme Power mufflers for the DA120. Guess DA has Slimline making their
stock mufflers now? The ones on my other plane with a 120 leak around the screw holes.
They may be cracked. Gasket maker won't even seal them.
Which is the better one to choose from.
DA, RC EX, or Jtec. Jtec's always seem louder to me?

Default Wing Bolts

Stuart had mentioned that the wing bolts weren't the best and I've read that here as well.
Here's a great aftermarket set I'm gonna buy.

I have this plane. The supplied (black) bolts were undersized. I had to buy the white Dubros. They are a tight fit and work fine.

I have no idea what you're planning on spending for these, but the white (Dubro, I think) work great. No need to spend a lot on others..

Are the wing bolts supposed to be 6mm or 1/4-20 ? I bought Sig 1/4-20 black nylon wing bolts to try on the maiden. Am I wrong?
