I'm framing up a Dynaflite Super Decathlon. This is my first large scale plane and I'm a bit nervous due to lack of experience. The instructions call for 6-32 threaded studs to be screwed into 1/8" holes in the strut ends and epoxied once all adjustments are made. I wonder if this is strong enough? How much of the flight loads to the struts take? Do you think it would be worthwhile to slit the strut ends and insert aluminum straps?
The fuselage looks a little weak, especially around the cabin. Is this true or am I being a weenie?
I'm considering an OS 120 four stroke (w/o pump). Thoughts?
The kit is actually a lot better than expected. Die cutting is quite good and very accurate.
