Default Electrifly GeeBee R2

It looks like it's the year of the GeeBee. Electrifly just announced a 30" RxR GeeBee. All it needs is your radio with 4 channel RX and a 3s 2200 lipo.

Check out my thoughts on it here: http://www.vintauri.com/great-planes...y-gee-bee-rxr/

Wow! Looks great. I like the way they attach the wheel pants. But did I hear right, the tail is attached magnetically?

I dont believe so. The battery hatch up top and the wheel pants are the only magnetically attached pieces.

'..the tail section is mounted by carbon fiber rods, held in place by magnets...'

I listened to it a couple of times. I wonder what that means? Anyways, the elastic strings used for bracing wires is a cool idea. I saw someones GeeBee from another mfgr do a little cartwheel and the wires went flying every which way, we were lucky to find them all! I'm not a great builder or anything, but I'm always fascinated by how things are put together and how they work.

Well, I went to the Great Planes site and was able to look at the manual. It just says to pushe the h-stabs into the fuselage, making sure they are centered, and the elevator rod is centered. Nothing about screws or carbon fiber or anything. Maybe the magnets hold the stab in? My PZ Corsair uses tape, so I guess if it works...
