Carden PRO Built by Lee

Well guess I will bite the bullet and post this build for all to see. Some specs are;
Carden 124 inch PRO Special with shortened single place canopy
Graph tech main gear and White Rose CF tailwheel
smartly EQ6 Turbo with LiIon cells all around
Hitec 7955 all around except for a Futaba corelessBB on throttle
PSP fittings on clear bottle fuel tank
DA 150 (my current one) on MTW RE3 tuned pipes
Some lightening mods a la Trev style

May go with shortened ailerons with single servo but I'll see....

Build starts end of October!

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Maybe I missed it in the op, but what is a Carden Pro? What A/C type?

Eric,

It's latest greatest thing from Carden. Co-Designed with "Thde Proffesor" aka Kurt Koelling.

They took the 43% and thined down the fuse and stretched it a bit, so it can use the 40% Extra 330/300 cowl. Wingspan reduced from 126" to 124" and the wing is thinner.

Kinda like what Dalton did to make their Extra 300ML verssion.

Some guys thought the 43% was a bit beefy and effected a lot by wind so the slimed verssion Pro is to rectify that.... to the best of my knowledge, but what does an HQ really know!
