    Main gear installed with gear cuffs!

    I like their new mounting system where the gear is clamped to the fuse - no weakening of the gear by drilling holes in it.

    The cuffs fit okay. Took lots of trimming. They don’t sit tight to the fuse so will add a bit of combing around them to finish it off better

    Holy Crap ALL those servos are JUST for this plane?

    Where those pivoting horns in the fuse for Pull-Pull Rudder?

    That DA200 Looks Perrrrrty!

    Re: CompARF Extra 330LX / DA200

    So on this new Extra, CARF molds in a firewall stub which is suited for a twin cylinder. And there is no 2.5deg offset angle. Up to the owner to add in offset and shorten if going with a longer motor like a quad.

    Hugely disappointing. Better ways of handling engine length. And at least put in the friggen offset. This will turn a lot of guys off for sure. Was eyeing one of these up for myself but not doing this again.

    Anyways, ignoring my rant, here are pictures of the shortening process / 2.5deg offset and new firewall.

    Besides the Hysol holding the firewall, I laminated 6oz CF cloth / West System on the backside and added 12 button head screws as pins.

    Ya Dean... the ailerons each have a TE strip on them to stop the flutter!
