And surely this engine should give good results in this plane Thumbs Up  
Yes I’m hoping so. I’m going to put a exhaust throttle sleeve on it as well powered by a Nano servo

Ok here is the new firewall in place. As you can see the original plastic bosses that located the old Testors engine firewall. This is being installed right behind that. I’ve got some screws for that but they might be a tad big. I look at that again tonight and see if I want to order smaller screws

I’m going to need a very light weight battery to run my radio. I prefer 6 volt but I may have to settle for 4.8. Any ideas or suggestions ?? A 2 cell lipo will be too much voltage . Thanks guys

Good morning Gents. Been working a lot at the salt mines. Finally got a few minutes to myself so I opted to spend some time on this thing. Got the firewall installed with #2 screws and Modified Golden bee installed on it. Looks great. Pictures to follow. Next step after engine is run in on test stand to install the exhaust throttle for speed control along with a nano servo and micro receiver. Also picked up a lite weight 4.8 volt battery to power the radio for speed control. More later

Notice the port side elevator. It droops downward. I do not know how this would affect its flying quality’s but I do want to fix it. Since the decals are on the top side I think I will use a heat gun from the other side. Carefully and oh so gingerly apply just enough heat so that I can prop it up back level and let it cool. If anyone has some additional suggestions I’d be willing to dance at your next wedding Lol 😆
