I'm finding this kit WAY too nose heavy with a BW up front and will probably replace it with the much lighter PeeWee .020 which is at the bottom end of the kit's power recommendation. If I were to fly it with the BW it would have the glide characteristics of a BRICK. To try to balance is at the recommended CG would require a considerable amount of added flight weight.

The building process as been confounded by errors and omissions in the plans. "Decals" are actually in fact stickers, ill-fitting at that. Certainly not the kit developed by the late Carl Goldberg.

I would be extremely hesitant to attempt another adaptation of any of Goldberg's kits. They simply are not of the quality they once where.

I'd recommend a tee dee .020 but this is the wrong section so it will be moved to the cox discussions section,

This morning I e'd John Brodak re: The "Toot".

John indicated that it is in the process of revision from the Goldberg original "Toot" as well a several of the other more popular small Goldberg CL planes.

He recommends specifing the Brodak revision of any Goldberg plane from any sources that offer them.
