28 Dec 11 - I bought this glider a while ago through eBay. It was really nicely built, from a free plan, and really only needed a receiver and battery to get it flying; however, I didn't like the rigid main plane struts as it made transport tricky. Due to other projects it sat at the back of my model room until recently when I finally got around to modifying the strut arrangement. The struts can now fold back against the rear fuselage out of the way. I also removed the standard size elevator servo and got the previously fixed rudder working; both using Hitec HS-81MG servos. I'm going to see how the 400mAh pack does but may increase it to a larger size if needed.
