Congrats! I'm glad everything went as well as it did! The EVA Sport is a pretty good acrobat as well. You may be surprised at everything it can do.

Great Job and Great Plane! I'm glad if anything I posted gave you some insite along the way.

I wasn't kidding when I said I was nervous. Yes it's a rush to fly a new one but it was all worth it. I wasn't as chicken to fly my old Hawksky again. That poor thing's been through the ringer.

Oh man that sounds like something that would happen to me. My Explorer has been paid off for a long time and is still in excellent condition. No reason to replace it for a big car note.

What's a good replacement wheel than what comes in the EVA kit? I see some 2 1/2" DuBro light foam wheels on the HURC site. I'm going to lose the wheel pants and stock wheels for now. They don't like grass very much.

The DuBro ones are really thick (and draggy) for this plane, but are more likely to be able to ride on the grass. I used these for a long time when flying off of grass.

They are only slightly thicker than the stock wheels. If the grass you are flying off if is really long and thick, the DuBros may be better.

I prefer to fly off of dirt or pavement but I'm somewhat limited at the moment. Maybe if I just remove the wheel pants that will help a lot. My buddy had no problem with the grass but he has a heavier and bigger plane than mine.

I've also just been hand launching with the 3D wing. Once you are comfortable with the plane and the setup you could give that a try too. Then the wheels don't matter...

Even a 2 foot bare spot is enough runway to get you up... (that doesn't sound right...)

Lots of possibilities!

Well I managed to snap the vertical stab off my EVA today. I had a less than spectacular landing attempt in a crosswind. Also slung the battery along with the holder and the little Velcro seat belt that goes around it out of the fuse. Just another reason that you need to know how to fix 'em if you're gonna fly 'em.
