Ive built three and got a forth on the go had no problems apart from the servo tray being loose on the Texan. But allways go round the joints with cyno.
P-51B Mustang Fly's like its on rails looks good in the air. OS 70FS
Cap 10 15cc RCGF Petrol, a bit challenging to fly as at certian attitudes orentation is a problem so needs flying.
AT6 Texan, Satio 72FS Hopefully will maden in the morning.
P-51B Mustang on the bench, OS 81FS being fitted.
For the price I have no complaints and I am planning to buy the 60 size FW-190A for a 15cc RCGF.

they were both out of crashed models and I just wanted to know if they were ok.  Never found out why they crashed.
 There was no charge.

Just like to say what an outstanding service Horizon give.  Posted two receivers at 10:00 Monday and received them back at 10:00 on Wednesday.
It's a shame more Retailers / Distributors were not like this.

Spent the last 3 hours trying to get flaps to work on a Black Horse Liberty 182.  Using a spektrum DX 7 with 6200 RX servos pluged into Flaps & Gear.  Using Mix 1.
Problem is:- No Flap setup ok, Full Flap setup ok, Half Flap they wont line up!!!
Can anyone shed any light on this as the instructions are no help, or is it my age.
Thanks in advance.
Regards Phil

Do you not think that a 6oz tank is a tad small for a Saito 82?  Mine seems to drink fuel like its going out of fashion.
