Good luck indeed. Gutsy move going from a foam micro to a balsa 400 size WWI plane.

Default just maybe.....

I lost my Arado Ar234 scratchbuild 2 years ago when it flew into the clouds and never came back. Maybe they'll bump into each other one day.........

Yep. Furthermore, again, cool plane, but NOT a slowflyer in the way that the other eflite 250s are. The L4 has about zero dihedral so if you slow down to the point where there's no air flowing over the ailerons, you basically fall sideways out of the sky.

Since that was my 3rd lost champ...I ordered the Whim micro Squire from Zeke's Park Model Flyers as a low cost replacement to the champ. Kit should arrive soon.
