Trevor can you please send a few pics of the float retracts when you have time. My brother has been asking me to try and build a set for him.

Will do. I have flown this one before but with a few beers in me so I cannot comment of flight characteristic at this time.....LOL

I do know they are very well built and very scale looking. They did a really nice job on it

What does that have to do with DA?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Jeff... I'll post some pictures tonight of the retracts ontop of the float plans. Some pretty cool geometry.

The only thing I don't like is the front retracts are free-castoring, not steerable, just like the full scale ones. So it'd be like trying to taxi a shopping cart, LOL!!! Probably fine once some airflow over the rudder, but Perhaps only fly at feilds that are level? I may have a solution rigged up to make at least one of them steerable.

Exciting times!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

News Flash... TBrum joins the DA Fanboy Club, LOL!!

I bought a 60cc airplane this morning and it comes with a DA70 twin on mufflers. 5 flights of runtime. Spinning a Mej24x10TH.

I pick it up on Saturday. Hope to re-maiden it Sunday as is in chainsaw format (mufflers), LOL.

Over the next little while i'll then decide if it'll stay in the plane of if it goes for sale in place of my GP61.

Trev do the mains have brakes? The full scale are able to steer via the brakes. I highly doubt the rudder steer that thing on the ground at taxi speeds.

Congrats on the DA-70. Sometime you just can't choose on a package deal
