I know this was for Terry but I used his trick for the baffles and just used med CA. Works perfect.

Yep. I noticed. Excellent taste.

Scroll down to "order here". Select carbon fiber or titanium spring. Done. One size.

Here's the carbon on my 105 and the titanium on my 115 for comparison. The titanium has much better flex if you tend to like tail wheel only touch and go's on heavier planes. The carbon "can" crack if abused...it's very stiff.

Medium CA and I do use a little bit of "goop" in a syringe for extra security. I use tite bond brand CA. It sticks to fiberglass better than typical hobby shop med. CA.

I went with the J&J unit after breaking 2 of the stock units. All you have to buy from J&J is the carriage which can be bolted to the stock carbon leaf spring. This keeps the pivot point perfectly lined up with the hinge line for direct drive which I prefer, and keeps cost down. 66 bucks shipped I think....comes with the wheel. Plus the spring is appropriately sized, and the whole thing looks great when together.

That does look good. Nice upgrade! Consider your game upped.

Reflex Color Scheme

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know I ordered the 105" version in the Reflex color scheme and it really looks great. Powered by a EME 120cc this plane basically flies on its own. What I mean is the plane is rock solid. The EME 120cc has more than enough power and I basically saved over $600.00 by not purchasing the DA 120. I used Savox 1270 servos, Smart Fly EQ6 Turbo power panel and fiber optic kill switch, three Lipo's: two 3600 pulse and one 2500 pulse. Turning a 28/10 Vess Prop at 7250. Really love the plane and the guys at AJ are great to deal with.

Glad to hear your liking it! The 105 is by far my favorite airframe of all time

... And if you like that EME 120 now, just wait until it starts to break in! A friend has one, and liked it from the start, but really liked it once that extra power showed up!
