Re: Aviation Design Diamond Assembly!

Great airplane!!

That is my favorite color. It does need a gyro on the rudder.
There are two week spots on this jet. The front former that the nose gear mounts into and sometimes the main gear mounts are offset just a bit causing interference of the main wheels to the spar. Otherwise a great jet that can land so slow.

Thanks Peter! Yea from all the videos I have watched and experience with the T Tail on my Tutor you can see it wagging in any crosswind. It's getting a Powerbox 3 Extra.

Thanks for the heads up on the gear mounts!
