Sorry, Al. I should learn to read more carefully!

So, looking at the E Starter specs, I think a 350-400 size motor would be more than adequate. The E starter should have an all up weight of about...

Beautiful job! Looks great! I remember mine fondly. It's very aerobatic, so I would keep the rates low to start, until you get it trimmed out. The red-white-blue one on the MM website was mine....

I'm curious if any of the experts here have any experience using a basic 3 axis gyro on a 3 channel model (R-E-T). I understand the use of gyros in 4 channel models. But with a rudder only, I...

Mark, could you take another look at the firewall placement vs. the manual and/or plans?

I realize it is too late to help at this point, but the issue with the availability of the Tyro 150 is the cowl. Brian has all the parts (probably cut and bagged), but the person who did the cowl...

Sounds like you are good to go. I do like the small four channel receivers. Haven't tried one of the eight channel "clones" yet, as I still have a bunch of Optima 6's and 7's that suit most of my...
