Keep an eye out on the poly tack it will getaway from you. When you first open it put about one once of MEK in the can and shake it up well. Keep doing this and you will get to use most of it before to hardens up, and keep it closed at all times.

Don’t know if I have the patience for that one. Maybe if I built something large enough that I’m going for the scale effect.

Don't know if I do iether. I picked up another item, not sure yet if I'm going to use it yet or not. It's a little on the heavy side. It's the Horizon Hobby Cub tailwheel. Look's good though. I'm also thinking about an OS gf40 for power instead of the DLE 30, though I trust the DLE's reliability. Not sure of the OS. I want to make sure what ever I use is good and reliable. Has anyone used the OS gf40?

OS GF40 showed up. Looks like a good engine. It is heavier than my DLE 30, so the heavier tailwheel my not be a bad thing. I'm also going to put the elevator servo in the tail, which will help out some.

Open the valve covers and check very carefully all the rocker arms and rocker arm pins for clearances. Beautiful engine only problem they have if run above 9000 rpm for very long periods of time they wear out.

Will do. I'll give it a good once over. I think I'm going to order an intake isolator and gaskets as they look a little older and discolored. Compression seems really really good.
