I put it through it's paces today and as far as I'm concerned, all those problems are related to the extremely powerful rudder. OS 61 FP, 12 -6 prop, 6 1/2 lbs. Gonna mount some Jay Dee skis when the snow flys.
Well Gary you are not the only one with this senario, i haven't maidin my GP Learjet as yet, i built it within first year when it came out, added all sorts of detail on it and everything, but scared to this day to fly it!...i just don't want to lose that model as it was my very first kit i built and i took it to the Beauti contest couple times, so lots of personal attachment to it.....I went to airport at northend when Semeritan Air was there and took 3 rolls of picture if there Learjet 35A and replicated all exterior details on my model....least you flew yours but not me...
