I for one appreciated the info on the QFII and if you had posted some place else I might have missed it. I've been kinda looking for something about that size to put a brushless outrunner on. Might be a good project. I like the price for the short kit. ----- Original Message ----- From: "John Gospodarek" <john@...> To: <BugHLG@yahoogroups.com> Sent: Saturday, October 08, 2005 9:13 AM Subject: [BugHLG] Re: RCM plans service > John > > I agree that The Bug is fun and is not designed as a competition > plane.
