I'm also going to use a Tru-Turn aluminum spinner with the DLE20 on my build. Read in this forum I think that using a TT aluminum spinner helped with the CG/balance. Also I think someone did use different tires also.

My 20cc Profile came last week. Hopefully I can get it unboxed this week and start some of the build. I have everything for the build. Just need some time.

Painted the motor box area to match the white in the scheme. Turned out good and I like it much better. Going to order some different wheels for it tonight. The stock ones are going to be too small to use on our clubs grass runway. Plus the stock wheels look out of proportion to the rest of the plane. Going to order some 3.5" Sullivan SkyLite Wheel w/Aluminum Hub. Thought about going with the 4" wheels since they are cheaper then the 3.5" wheels but the 4" are heavier. Anyone have a pic of there plane with the 4" wheels? Thanks!

Wing bags

I'm trying to find the right size wing bags to use with the profile wings. Bought the Redwing RC small wing bags and the wings fit, but a little too tight. Exchanged the small bags for the medium size. Now the Redwing RC medium wing bags are too big. Any advice on which wing bags work for the profile wings?

25% from Aztec should be perfect fit.

I've been using a few pair of his Spot-On bags for over 5 years and are in perfect condition and offer great protection/peace of mind.

Not really unless you had some huge hands, I just tip it up on the nose and the wing bolts go thru one wing thru the fuse and thread into blind nuts in the other wing.
