Hi guys, I've got an Enya 120-4C that was on a Cub I picked up a couple of weeks ago. The bearings that were in there were rusty so I ordered new ones but the original main bearing had open bearings and the front bearing was sealed in the front.

As soon as my glue supplies come I will be starting the construction of my Balsa SC. I have seen different ones reference scale flaps & ailerons and have seen several on youtube with them. I Googled them and came up with nothing. Where are they available from? Dave

Includes new Pitts style muffler, side mount muffler, engine mount, 4.8v ignition, spinner, prop and manual. Surely someone here on GSN can put...

Some really nice scale details on this Spitfire. Flap indicators, cockpit detail, split flaps and hidden control surface linkages to name a few. Vid of my first flight. Immediate confidence to strafe the strip with fast passes but mixed in slow passes to show it's broad ability...and some scale aerobatics....

I just got my 1/3 scale Balsa USA SC kit today. This will be my first giant scale build and the 1st build for me in about 25 years. Is it best to go with Balsa USA house brand glue or should I consider a generic brand that may be just as good if not better and a lot cheaper? Also, Appx. how much do I need for the...
