I can't comment about theirs specifically, but for something like that what I'd do is to cover it in all yellow, then cut out black trim. Then apply the black trim using windex, line it up where you...

I was in the exact same boat as you KeninAZ. I hated Dean's connectors and turned to powerpoles. I haven't looked back. They're great.

Set-up looks good! Should be a good conversion. Good call on the external BEC, this way you don't have to worry about over-loading the ESC. That motor you got looks good, the ones you had picked...

Sounds like you're really having a great time with the Dandy Sport! You're making me want to order one - I think it would be a nice quick winter build. Keep up the great job flying her!

Looks GREAT! Very nice job for your 1st build.

Looks like there's some wrinkles in the covering on the wing (maybe not though - sometimes reflections can give illusions). But if there are, you...

I would see if you can fit it between the servos and the battery. Looks like if you install it vertically it may fit. Or you may want to put the main receiver up front next to the ESC where there's...

I've never flown the Dandy, but it looks like it already has a flat bottom wing, so I don't think you'd need much more lift. It may make the airplane want to pitch up/porpoise around and actually...

That will work. I personally only use those EZ connectors for things like nose wheel steering and throttle, where if they come loose its not the end of the world. Which I know if installed properly...

Yeah, those look good. For these type of models, I use "A" beveling and then just gently round the edges of the leading/trailing edge. As Mark correctly points out, the wood is so thin, that if you...

Also make sure to use a sanding block of some sort so you get a nice even bevel and rounded edges. If you use sand paper and your hands, it'll come out all wavy.

Sorry, didn't mean to ignore it or think I was ignoring it. The Cub and maybe the cessna could be good. But the war planes are going to likely fly somewhat faster. I'd avoid them as a "1st" plane....

The MM Eva has a cowl which makes it more realistic, and I believe it is more or less a newer switchback. The Eva also has several wing options.
