Thanks bro

Glad to hear good report! 10 mph is good amount of wind. Yet the motor is strong enough to pull it through it.

Just a thing I thought to mention, if your at a place that you can't hang your Fokker by the prop for storage, you can lay it on the top win upside down. A tip that might come in handy if your at a field and it's hot... keep all those wings straight...

Good point on storage Rolling Circle. I also carry my foamies to the field by running a bungee across the roof line by the pull handles at the top. Then I hook pieces of string to the bungee and hang by the props of all the planes. I can get 6 of the 32 inch planes in a SUV,

Can't wait for the fall nights! those are my favorite times, not too hot, not too cold, and not too windy. Just bought a trailer too and its gonna become a twisted trailer! I may have to do what Benton did in his Twisted SUV.

Yeah, I mostly got it for my 3dhs 103" extra which is kind of a tight fit in a car lol. Been a little discouraged since my DLE 120 has had issues. Already have had to have it replaced and I am waiting for new mufflers to arrive. I know it will be worth it once it is broken in and the plane is flying good though.

Awesome Eric! Lights sound really cool on the Fokker, I may have to get some for mine. Post a few pics when you get them on your plane, we'd love to see it.

I received my light set today. Thanks Mike. I was trying to decide if I wanted to use them as is and put them on the middle wing, or break up the wing ones and put one on top and one on the bottom wing. I tested out the setup as is and decided it looked good. Installation is a breeze and these should provide plenty of light for night flying. The set comes with a Y harness, so I used one of the ends and soldered it inline with my battery connector. That way I can unplug the lights if I want. The utility room was the only place I could find that is completely dark, so that is where I took the pics.

Looks great Eric.

I forgot that Mike sells for Roger (Aurora).

Is that 2 sets or one?

I have the same set sitting here and was holding the lights different places on the plane and wondering what would be the final placement. I was sort of thinking I might like more lights but your Fokker looks pretty well lit up
