  1. Thanks again so much for your reply! Ok, I guess I will just keep messing with it. I just never thought it would be this much work and frustration with the Xcub gear to get them to work with the Timber.

    Cheers!

    No Problem! Like I said in my OP, It's a labor of love to get them to fit.

  3. Are you just plugging those 1800mah packs straight in to the RX or, are you running them through a BEC first?

    Thanks!

    My window cracks were healed with canopy glue.

    After my exploratory wing surgery I patched her up.

    The plane is not built to last very long. You are really finding all the weak links in the plane, and you are not even thrashing the plane. Looks like one season plane and then it is ready for complete strip down and rebuild over the winter for next season.
     
  7. Well, he does fly it like he stole it.

    I did fly the wingtip into the ground to make that happen HA HA. Wing was solid - without the struts. If the struts were on the window probably would have been fine. I wish the design used cross braces, thicker ply, stronger cabin structure, and lots more glue. I really think this plane is awesome, just not a 3D plane like advertised. Electric will probably keep the weight down, and thus last a bit longer.

  9. Mine is coming along. all surfaces complete, all servos installed, landing gear (FINALLY finished), switches and wiring installed, went around the nose and cockpit all over the frame and applied epoxy to critical structural places that looked like they lacked enough epoxy.

    Nice work! Gear looks good!
    Now you need an @AKNick special 3D printed tailwheel fork.
