  • icepirate3,

    I re-wired mine so the landing lights go on and off with the gear.

    • Just received a message from HK stating that they recognized there were problems with the props and they are sending me a set of "stronger" props. Fine with me!

        I remember they said the same thing about their now discontinued C-47 "Jungle Jumper". They sent me new props, new motors. Didn't seem to make any difference.

            I saw HK was showing the new improved props in stock. I ordered 2cw and 2 ccw, then contacted customer service and explained that Ian said HK would credit your account for the purchase. Within 2 hours I had credit for the props.

                • Started painting finally. This is my first attempt at this so I'm taking my time. Need it to warm up a bit before I start the spray can part. Used sticky notes to mask and am pleasantly surprised at how well it worked!! I did use masking tape to help tighten it down, especially on the fuselage. I airbrushed international orange and will rattle can the rest. She will look strange without skis and fairings but I'm not even going to try to engineer those yet.
