Any one building the Mosa II? Great airplane. I had a minor mishap the day but no damage except breaking the prop. Taxied her into a bench. Duh !Now I can't find the correct allen wrench to get the frickin spinner off. Geez.

C'mon Spin !

Well ?

With a sticky thumbs move, I managed to auger my Mosa II into the ground. Duh !

Left a nice crater. The good news is that there was not very much damage. Cracked the fuse near the nose. Smashed up the cheapie cowl and broke a 12x 6 prop. No wing damage. Some epoxy for the fuse and packing tape for the cowl, and she's ready to take me on again. I must say that Chellie's custom LG held up very well. and this was a straight-in, high G nose-first crash.

I'm very impressed at how durable this plane really is. The EPO foam formula they are using is very tough. Tougher than anything I have in the squadron.

Well, I have received my Formosa II. Since this was a no-power-system model, I wasn't expecting certain bits. However nowhere does it say that servos are to be provided by the builder. I have a couple of 9g Hextronik XT100s from Hobbyking and I'll buy a couple more.

Lighat.

There are a lot of useless plastic pieces in the kit. The good part is the 5 pieces of EPO foam. One major mod I made was to include a set of LG made by Chellie. Really helped. Some build tips here but also over on RCG.

Welcome to WF !
