    If anyone wanted a Gilmore but hadn't gotten one yet i feel bad for you. The price is now $1,099 which is absolutely crazy!!!!!!!!

    Has anyone done a smoke system in their gilmore? I'm curious how the smoke tank might be laid out in reference to the fuel tank etc. If anyone has done this and can post up a picture that would be great.

    I'm thinking this might be a good winter project.

    Photo taken by a photography hobbyist who came to our club's annual community fly-in. Great detail on the zoom but you're right....would have loved to seen the whole plane.

    VERY nice shot indeed. I would have loved to see the full aircraft. Cant help but wonder what is going on with the tail section.

    RCBobP Nice shot. Still, the coolest Gilmore pilot in the cockpit.

    Is that a super aggressive take off or a fancy tail first landing.

    Great photo either way!!

    Thanks, 406PIlot . I worry that with my luck, I'll try to bend it, but it will break!

    I don't trust the EZ Connector on the throttle servo arm.

Now that I have the throws and trims where I want it, how big of a sin would it be to place a drop of medium CA on the push rod on either side of the connector? Or does anyone have a better idea? Or is my paranoia unfounded? (As the saying goes, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not really out to get you.)
    Put a 90bend in the wire just behind the connector. This should keep it from coming completely out should the screw get loose. Also no harm in a little ca or some blue loctite
    here is a picture of mine doing exactly as I mentioned. The picture is bad but you get the idea (I hope).

    Just make sure you don't need to adjust the rod before you trim and bend.

    Very nice of you to drop in Karol. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.

    You have company in that department as any connection that I have the slightest doubt of it coming loose gets a dab of loctite or CA just for my peace of mind and also safety's sake.

    That 5-cylinder engine looks bad arse! If I had known about it, I probably would have used that one, not that there's anything wrong with the Saito!

    Looking forward to your flight report, and take some video so we can hear that engine purr!
