    You guys are hilarious. Truth is, my son needs one for a plane he is rebuilding for his girlfriend. Believe it my friends. She loves this hobby. She has been the one so willing to take all the photos and videos of our outings. And she does it all with a big joyful smile. He is rebuilding a Pilot 330 for her.

    Thanks for the offer, but my excuse for buying this plane was I had a DA50 that needed a home.:)

    I'll say one thing, this is the most beautifully covered ARF I've seen. It's a crying shame it was shipped by Gorillas. None of the damage is bad enough to send back, but I will need a new side window.

    All you guys talking about old DA50 that need homes I have plane that needs a DA50 but just have not been able to make a decision on weather I should buy Another DA50 or get a DA60. The problem is I have heard that the DA60 very rough and hard on planes. So I have been in limbo and said if I need to fly the other plane I will just move the DA50 over.

  7. Guess I'll have to go to another forum to get the advice on dual servo hook up's.

    I would bet one "Dead Franklin", if you get hold of Tony with pics of damage he will get you handled. Then again, it should be the shipping companies responsibility to cover the damage. But we already know how that will turn out. Jump through rings of fire, wait until the flesh has rotted from your sun bleached bones and have dried and returned to dust blowing in the wind. More rings of fire, more waiting only to be told, "We dont cover subsequent parts of the original item shipped". "Only the original item itself"! Shippers...gotta love/hate them. Lol

    My friends 180" Pilot Decathlon was also nearly perfectly covered. And that's a lot of plane brother. Pilot RC has really made great strides to become one of the best RC airplane suppliers.

    What you've heard regarding the DA 60 is true. They vibrate like crazy. My friend has one on a Yak and quite often, we find pile o poo.png falling off that plane. Annoying s heck! Personally I'd put a DLE 55 or 61 on it before I'd use a DA. But that's just me. If money was no object, I'd put one of these bad boys on in place of anything else. 70cc power in a 55cc sized package.

    Sorry I missed this... I personally dont care for self adjusting. Too much to maintain and keep serviced. Also, really unnecessary with all the newer radios and servos we have now. I believe the self adjusting system was originally designed for those that did not have elaborate radio systems that allowed full programmability of the servos through the entire range of motion. Now, most any higher quality radio system can accurately move multiple servos with pinpoint precision and a solid hard link is stronger, more precise and never needs attention. I personally like hard linking my rudder servos together.

    Acerc concerning dual rudder set ups are you looking at buying setup or do it your self. If I need more than one servo to do the job I always build my own because I believe it works. If you are interested let me know and I will make a sketch of the setup and then you can build your own it will not take more than a couple of hours to do. The set up balances the load between the two servos and you do not have to do any matching. And the pull from the rudder cables are equally distributed to the two servos.
