This is where Im at with the Mig build, not sure how the servos go in....I am assuming I will be cutting a hole for them. Will it be easier to wait until my clevis's, and pushrods arrive to get proper placement??

Yes know my wing support is terribly crookid.....its driving me NUTS!!! It should still do the job but i cant stand to look at it!!!

OK never mind..I cant get the picture to load. I'll email it to Dan and have him post it!

I think i will be ordering the red eagle EPP Yak-54 from hobby king today, i killed the front of my corsair last night so i am going to hang it up for a little bit until i feel like repairing it.

Cant believe how tough the PZ extra has been though, flew it last night with the 11x7 prop and that thing cuts a big ole hole in the sky at full tilt. Started really practicing landing with some touch and goes...thought i had something going really good and i managed to come down a little off to the side of the runway....some how i caught the only piece of rebar sticking up in the entire gravel area. Nail the wing and put a decent hole in the leading edge. A little fabric tape and its good as new.

Need to get the video of it uploaded its pretty interesting

I ordered a DW Foamies 38" Yak 54 and the matching motor and esc. Although I got the foam for a scratch build, after looking at this as my first build, the DW Foamy, with all the carbon fibre in the wing attching hardware, and decals instructions and internet building tips seemed like the best way for me to go. I looked at a lot of kit builders and for me, (especially on the West Coast) seemed to have a pretty decent set up.

That is a nice kit. Fot that type of plane a pre-fab kit is a great choice...should be a cool build and a great flying plane. Post some pics when you get it!
