Thank You guy's, all the info I needed to look for everything.Going to email Tom about the kit and get some sticker shock.The DA150 I can handle and all the hardware,but I know composites airframes of any type aren't cheap.

Great tech day. Quite a few new to USRA pilots and seasoned veterans as well.

Tomorrow is a heat race day.

Come out to check things out! California City Municipal Airport.

Due the wind blowing 25 to 35 today, we were not able to get in any racing. The wind did not die down until 4 or so, so only a few additional test flights late in the afternoon.

Stay tuned for tomorrow, or we will have perfect weather and be getting in as many heats in as possible. This gets us ready for the trophy races on Sunday.

Granted, the kit will be your major expense and after that any 8+ channel radio system will do. Stock DA150's are every where and Highly suggest a Fresh one for Race Day and that's easily done by sending into DA for a health check.

Robart Air or electrical retract system, a 32oz. fuel tank, an ignition kill system, a 6" Truturn special cut spinner and a race prop or 2 and some paint.

The electric starter,,, a 12volt L/H rotation Enduro type Go Cart starter motor with a cone for 6" spinners. This might take some leg work to locate one already built. However they are available here https://www.colemanstarters.com/catalogpage1 and you will need to machine the cone to fit(5/8 hole on the cone) to the 5/8 dia. output shaft of the starter motor.

OR,,, every once in a while there's an airframe for sale or somebody selling out and all you'll need to do is install your gear and go fly


If your wanting more info shoot me a pm and we'll go from there
