Very nicely done. I wonder how it will balance with a light 30-35cc on front.

Will that cowl take Evo 35 radial?

This looks like it is the same size as the Redwing RC Stinson.
The size and color scheme is nice.
I don't trust the wing tubes from Phoenix. I have had some fail. How strong are the Phoenix wing tubes?

The Saito 33cc radial gas engine that I have only puts out about 10 pounds of thrust.
The 33cc nitro version puts out about 14.5 pounds of thrust (in contrast).

I am running a Saito 120 on a CH-Ignition system and 95% methanol and 5% oil. Running without nitro reduces power just a bit, but with an ignition system you can run any fuel that will explode ($6/gallon fuel). And power is just about the same as a 20cc gas 2-stroke, with a nicer sound. I would consider buying a 30cc nitro engine (about 3.00 cubic inch) to run with an ignition system, for the Stinson.

I think that a FA-200 or FA-180 would be a good candidate. Just make sure that you can get an acceptable idle, if you convert it to ignition.

Now this is pretty cool. Would be really nice if the FG-60R3 would fit in the cowl.

Nice kit, I have a GF40 that should fit this nicely... Too nice of an aircraft to pass this one up.

I agree, placed my order already. Have everything else already just waiting on the plane.
