    Comments

    Following are the colors of Top Flite MonoKote used to cover this
    model and order number for six foot rolls;
    Jet White TOPQ0204
    Orange TOPQ0202
    True Red TOPQ0227

    If a replacement fuel tank is needed, order the Sullivan 8oz
    Flextank (SULQ1739), or the DuBro 8oz tank (DUBQ0208).
    Some minor trimming and modifications may be required. These tanks
    are smaller than the tank originally supplied and will give shorter
    run times.

    Appearance

    Product came through with few skin wrinkles. The first time I removed the canopy hatch, one of the safety tabs came unglued and fell in my lap. Got it back in after some frustrating moments and added additional CA to the one that didn't come unglued.
    The only other complaint is that the tailwheel is just a little anemic for that weight model. I replaced mine with a Dubro tailwheel of the same design, ie. spring connector to the rudder. Tracks much better now.
    Overall great plane to fly. Tracks well. Only needed a little down trim when set for 50% power, which is where I like to fly most.
    Power is an e-Flight 46 with a 60Amp Turnigy ESC and is flown with four cell, 4k to 5k packs.

    Appearance

    I really like the look of this plane, but mine arrived covered in wrinkles. It is tough to find a square inch that does not have a wrinkle in it. I had to modify the tail wheel as it is very weak and flops from side to side. After getting out the iron and a few minor upgrades, I am ready to fly.
