    You are really into bi-planes. They are really close, but as mentioned if look at piece by piece there are small changes throughout the plane but at first glance they are same.
    Looking at the planes with four ailerons why would you put 2 servos on each aileron. Would one on each aileron be sufficient. I am no bi-plane expert but have had a couple a number of years back but one thing I do remember is that di-planes need very little aileron movement compared to monoplanes.

    Ain't that something? I have no interest in biplanes. Different strokes I suppose.

    Snoopy 1 was commenting how you were really into biplanes. I commented that I was not at all. Not particularly contributing to the thread but just a comment on the difference in interests.

    I have had a few and enjoyed them all still have a Skybolt and love flying it. It is getting old probably over 10 years. But in those days I built heavier and everything was covered in coveral and painted with Stits. Still would like to have a bi-plane but at least 50cc. The only thing is that the assembly at the field just gets to me and I do not have a trailer so for now it has to be mono planes.

  6. I seriously doubt I will but prepared if needed.
  7. It just kinda threw me, I get now though. It takes all kinds and personally glad everything is not the same.

  8. The kit is on it's way, shipping says delivery this Saturday. I might not get to it for a week or two for I am doing some enlarging on the shop as well as needing to assemble a Laser 230. The Laser 230 was bought specifically to put the Valach in to break it in well before going into the Bulldog II. I will work on the models in between working on the shop so things will be slow. I am doubling the shop size, adding a screened in area (patio if you will) for painting and sanding, and lean-tos for some equipment that has been sitting out in the weather.
    So bear with me folks.
    And believe me, none of you can possibly be wanting to see this build start more than I.

  9. Forgot to post this. Blazing Wings sent me a pic before shipping it out, it does not look like much but there is a boat load of wood in there.
